I’ll begin this post by sharing a funny video one of my commenters shared on a previous post, you’re going to need it. It’s a satirical video of what affirmative consent would look like taken to it’s logical conclusion, complete with lawyers representing the guy and girl thinking of having sex. They negotiate every last detail of the sexual rendezvous including whether oral sex will happen, what particular part of the body can be fondled and if so how it will be touched etc. The video constitutes a sort of dark humor that we can laugh at, but in the back of your head you’re left wondering how close to this type of situation are we in currently, and worse yet, how close to this type of situation can we potentially get?
Well, I’ll attempt to answer that for you by bringing to your attention the following article titled Students Told to Take Photos With a ‘Consent Contract’ Before They Have Sex. The article states the following:
A “yes means yes” advocacy group, the Affirmative Consent Project, is instructing college students to take a picture with a contract before they have sex with each other just to make absolutely sure both parties are officially consenting. In fact, the group has been distributing contracts to schools nationwide as part of its Consent Conscious Kit, according to an article in the Washington Examiner.
Ok I’m going to stop there gentleman, and just clarify that yes these people have actually begun distributing what they call a “consent conscious kit” feast your eyes on it below:
Good lord, this is some high level propaganda right here folks, Goebbels himself would have had trouble topping this. I cant confirm the validity of any of this, but like many of you have at one point or another, I like to occasionally peruse a particular brand of conspiracy theory as a guilty pleasure. I’m referring to subliminal imagery conspiracy theory, that is, instances where the people dedicated to investigating these things find hidden phrases and images designed to speak to the limbic system of the consumer, allowing the advertisers selling their products to bypass the discerning eye of consciousness and peddle their goods at the subconscious level. The most notable example of this is the famous coca cola advertisement that seems to display, inconspicuously nestled in the reflection of an ice cube, a woman seemingly about to perform oral sex on a male member. Have a look for yourself.
The idea is to either allow these imperceptible images, images that have to do with extremely potent motivates of human behavior (sex, violence etc) to simmer just under the surface recorded by our subconscious in order to imprint in our memories in away that is correlated to the product, in this case a coca cola bottle, so that the next time we crave a soda we choose coca cola and not pepsi. I have to wonder if this”consent conscious kit” has a little bit of that going on here… y’know give the young impressionable minds a neat fun little activity “kit” they can subconsciously correlate with the incredibly potent human sex drive and all that.
Ok, off with the conspiracy cap and back to reality. This consent kit comes with some mints, a condom, a cool little pouch and an actual consent contract depicted below:
The contract is not legally binding of course, but it does show the reach and power of the feminist machine. That feminists can get pursue something as ridiculous as yes means yes and be taken seriously all whilst dispensing these cult like contracts says a lot about the type of clout these people have in academia and beyond. These are the same people that will attempt to raise the legal age of consent so as to shorten the pool of available women men have to choose from. the article continues saying:
If no camera is available, students are encouraged to fill out the form on the back of the contract which states, “On this date [fill in the blank], we agree to have consensual sex with one another” followed by a space for students’ printed names and signatures. The kit also also includes breath mints and a condom. The state of California passed a law requiring all colleges that accept state funding to adopt policies requiring all students to obtain affirmative consent — which it defines as “affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity” that is “ongoing” and not given when too drunk — before engaging in sexual activity, or else risk punishment for sexual assault. (The University of Minnesota also plans to adopt a similar policy later this month.)
These people, the ones passing these laws and hosting these initiatives, I’m convinced, are some sort of sociopaths. There seriously needs to be a updated version of the DSM that includes these victimhood tyrant’s and their passive aggressive munchausen like tendencies as a paraphilia of some sort so that we can start diagnosing these people. This consent amounts to nothing short of a court consent decree, it is verbal consent on steroids and then some. The article descends further into the madness.
Now, in case you think taking a photo with a contract before having sex would be going a bit far with the whole make-sure-you-have-proof-of-affirmative-consent thing – you’re wrong. In fact, it’s not going far enough. After all, affirmative consent policies demand that consent be given repeatedly throughout the entire encounter and that both parties be sober enough to do so. So, just because someone consented when they signed the contract doesn’t necessarily mean that they were consenting the entire time. And, as Ashe Schow points out in the Examiner, a student could always claim she was too drunk to know what she was doing when she signed it.
This post isn’t really designed to explain the disfunction of all this affirmative consent business, I feel I’ve done that adequately here. It’s more of an attempt to document than anything else. I’ve also managed to track down the university of Minnesota consent form here:
Make of this what you will folks, be safe out there especially if you’re a young collegiate male, there are those that wish to criminalize you for being a man. You have been warned.
