This is neat. The university of Galway in Ireland is actually leading the educational field in developing an comprehensive and realistic program on sexual consent education.

One of the primary criticisms of the old "no means no" and "yes means yes" slogans and other similar campaigns about consent is that, well, that doesn't really reflect how people, you know, actually behave in the bedroom (or in a phone booth or wherever if y'wanna get crazy, I won't judge). The "Would you like a cup of tea?" UK campaign was probably the best iteration of that sort of thing, but was still essentially limited to the same bounds.

I think most of us realize that sexual consent can be complicated and often involves many different forms of communication, including a lot of entirely nonverbal cues, so I think it's awesome that there's a group out there that's saying "Yes, we can account for this with real education" and actually put together a concrete program that reflects this, as opposed to leaving the "but ambiguity!" argument to the trolls and rape-apologists as has mostly been the case so far.

I dunno if it's possible to boil this down to a core you can use in a public campaign like the cup of tea one to cover the essentials (hey, this may not be possible), but if so the information is here for an incredibly powerful and useful education campaign.

Wasn't the point of that interview to poison any possible jury selection process?

holy shit this guy
One tweet by Young was in response to a BBC Comic Relief appeal in 2009 for starving Kenyan children.[89] During the broadcast, a Twitter user commented that she had "gone through about 5 boxes of kleenex" whilst watching. Toby Young replied: "Me too, I havn't [sic] wanked so much in ages".[58] He has expressed remorse for his "politically incorrect" tweets.[90]

When your transphobia goes so hard you end up trying to legalize pedophilia.

Off topic, but I saw a tweet somewhere that went something like "I don't really care about politics. Now, let me tell you how much I hate my boss, my job, my health insurance, and my public transit system."

I do wonder how much of the apparent global hard right wing death spiral is just a desperate retreat from the knowledge that Everything is a Spectrum.

Today I learned that this is service people do (it's a good service even if the subject is creepy and awful!).
