Do you believe that the importance of effective consent should be at the forefront of our cultural consciousness, or are you a complete shit-head?
If you answered that first question with a resounding “Yes,” then that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to go to ConsentFest tomorrow night or anything. I know you’re probably busy, and you can spend your Thursday as you please. I just wanted to establish that you shouldn’t be a complete shit-head.
That being said, tomorrow night in the Spa, the Center for Sex and Gender Relations (in addition to the 15-plus clubs that are co-sponsoring) will be presenting ConsentFest, a “consent-based carnival” featuring club performances, games, and raffles–all of which I’m assuming will have some sort of thematic tie to consent. The event starts at 8:00pm, but it seems like an open-house affair, so you should swing by at any point.
Also, given the unfortunate events that transpired earlier today, I figured it’d be as good a space as any to say that the CFSGR is a great resource filled with great people who’d be more than happy to answer any questions regarding consent, sexual-misconduct, or issues of gender and sexuality in general.
