"Yes Means Yes", California's Renaming Sexual Message For College Students

New bill requires, female students to first verbally agree to having sex. Only when a woman has "an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity", should a male student proceed.

If a female student doesn't say yes or doesn't say anything at all, it means she does not want sexual contact. This is what this new bill in California states, by Governor Jerry Brown. Basically if the female student is silent, lacks resistance, asleep, is drunk or unconscious… if she doesn't say "YES", she should not be sexually touched or manipulated!

You would think that a law like this is not necessary for college students, but sometimes placing rules, might bring up a red flag and help prevent sexual assaults by male students. We praise Governor Jerry Brown for signing this bill and hope that other colleges or universities follow suit.
