Thanks for that inch, may we please have our mile?

Damn. Jesse Taylor fisks this article by Dawn Eden where she objects to an anti-rape campaign, because apparently teaching college kids about the importance of consent, they are implying that, well, it's okay for girls to consent. The sluts. The article plumbs new lows of immorality in the right wing quest to blame cunt-having women for absolutely everything, sure, but the leaps of logic are really quite a thing to behold.

Picture students, many of them teenagers, wearing "Consent is Sexy" buttons on a college campus. What kind of message does that give? It's intentionally provocative. By using the words "Consent" and "Sexy" together, it implies, "Say yes! I'm easy! Do me!" — a message that is, or rather should be, the exact opposite of the V-Day campaign's intended mission.

Yeah, I read it five or six times for some semblance of sense, too, and couldn't find it. It's understandable, though, that a campaign about the importance of consent would confuse your average right-winger. After all, this is a campaign about sexual morality aimed mostly at men, and, as we all know from our abstinence-only educations, the people in charge of sexual morality are women. Well, men are supposed to not fuck each other, but that's it.

But yes, this is grossly immoral. The comment about how offering consent ("do me") is an open invitation to being raped functions only to blur the lines between consensual sex and rape. And of course, it's in that blur that rapists become innocent victims of their own penises that they have no control over and victims become the victimizers, running around provocatively female and just asking for it.

I imagine your average teenager is a hell of a lot more capable of understanding the point behind this campaign than Dawn Eden is. I think that it's extremely important for young men to get some kind of message that their relationships with women will be much more fulfilling if they treat women like full human beings instead of cunts on legs. And it's a hard task to undertake when there are writers out there like Eden who are encouraing the notion that if a young man sees the word "sexy" anywhere near the body of a young woman, he is simply incapable of considering what she's saying and instead is forced to have sex with her whether she likes it or not.

Picture students, many of them teenagers, wearing "Consent is Sexy" buttons on a college campus."Aight, I've seen this sort of statement before on World O'Crap and some return-to-patriarchy/hardcore Christian homeschooler type sites. What the hell is it with these people and thier college students == junior high school kids mentality? OK, some college freshmen come in a little green and clueless, but mostly they adapt and grow up pretty quickly. Calm down, people, they had to do it sometime.

It's not just the wingnuts that think like that, of course. I see all kinds of silly overprotective parents when I work at my University bookstore, and I just want to slap them and send them downstairs for a drink. Treating your kids like they're 8th-graders all the way through college just gets you a college-educated 8th- grader living in your home after s/he graduates.

Besides, if it was a campus of any decent size, only a small fraction of the student population would be wearing these "Do me now, cowboy" pro-consent buttons anyways, and now that these girls have obviously consented publicly to do all the men, the remaining majority of coeds can continue to be virgins until they marry a business major the day after graduation. See, Dawn, everything is still under control. Some girls just got to take one (or all) for the team, that's all.
