Behold the insanity wrought when men ignore God’s Law!
From myfoxny.com: “California debates ‘yes means yes’ sex assault law.”
College students have heard a similar refrain for years in campaigns to stop sexual assault: No means no.
Now, as universities around the country that are facing pressure over the handling of rape allegations adopt policies to define consensual sex, California is poised to take it a step further. Lawmakers are considering what would be the first-in-the-nation measure requiring all colleges that receive public funds to set a standard for when “yes means yes.”
Defining consensual sex is a growing trend by universities in an effort to do more to protect victims. From the University of California system to Yale, schools have been adopting standards to distinguish when consent was given for a sexual activity and when it was not.
Legislation passed by California’s state Senate in May and coming before the Assembly this month would require all schools that receive public funds for student financial assistance to set a so-called “affirmative consent standard” that could be used in investigating and adjudicating sexual assault allegations. That would be defined as “an affirmative, unambiguous and conscious decision” by each party to engage in sexual activity.
Silence or lack of resistance does not constitute consent. The legislation says it’s also not consent if the person is drunk, drugged, unconscious or asleep.
Lawmakers say consent can be nonverbal, and universities with similar policies have outlined examples as maybe a nod of the head or moving in closer to the person.
Permit me to simplify this entire debate by substituting one “c” word for another:
How about we say sex is permissible not by mere “consent,” but only within “covenant.” No ring, no fling… end of the agonizing attempts at definition.
Any male who has relations with a woman to whom he is not married instantly becomes liable to a sexual assault charge. Perhaps guys might think twice about risking fornication then, wouldn’t you think?
I bet my plan would lower the “unplanned pregnancy” rate, reduce abortions, and significantly lessen all kinds of violence that is bred through sexual jealousies.
Life becomes far more complicated, painful, and messy when you ignore the Creator’s wisdom. Exponentially more costly, too; financially, emotionally, and socially.
