Okay, so I volunteered to be a part of my school’s sexual assault awareness committee. The first meeting was today since we’re planning for sexual assault awareness month and I just fucking can’t.
There was this guy there who was like, “What exactly is consent?”
And I don’t know about you, but that is probably like the scariest question (like what if that guy was your friend? can you even trust someone like that? i would never want to be alone with someone if they didn’t KNOW WHAT CONSENT WAS) I can think of someone asking, but I at the same time I was like, “Okay, this motherfucker wants to educate himself or something.”
But I was wrong.
Because apperantly the idea of consent is “blurry.” And you can’t just ask someone when you’re about to have sex if they’re sure they want to do it “because that’s not how it works.” Mind you, that last part was said by a girl who jumped in to defend the guy’s arguement.
But then he said that sexual assault could be a “gray area” and if it would be sexual assault if he was drunk at a party and he held a girl’s hand. I just want to know: is this motherfucker seriously stupid or does he think it is funny to purposefully trivialize sexual assault?
But when I said that all you had to do was ask the girl jumped in and said that that is not how “it” works. WELL, MAYBE THAT IS WHY 1 IN 4 COLLEGE WOMEN ARE RAPED. MAYBE THAT IS WHY ON AVERAGE 38,000 WOMEN ARE PREGNANT AS A RESULT OF RAPE. MAYBE THAT IS WHY 1 IN 33 MEN ARE RAPED. MAYBE THIS IS WHY IN SOME PARTS OF THE WORLD WOMEN ARE FORCED TO MARRY THEIR RAPISTS. Is that how “it” works?
Like would you rather “ruin the mood” or be a fucking rapist?! JUST ASK. “ARe you sure?” “Do you want to have sex?” ASK! IT IS NOT HARD.
And you want to know what the worst thing is? That they spoke to me like I was stupid, like I didn’t know what I was saying. I was the ignorant one.
And for a second I felt like it.
Goddamn it, for a second I felt like an idiot.
And since this is a fucking Catholic school they want to bring in a “modest speaker” (who only talks about chastity and relationship “purity”) so people will turn up. God forbid anyone’s incentive is to try and be a better human being…
I just, I can’t.
