Reading this makes me so incredibly angry. That a woman should be re-victimized by the officer who is supposed to protect her is disgusting.

Excellent reaction from the man in the story Mike who stated it was unacceptable to treat a woman that way. Too often in our culture men look the other way out of fear of being labeled "whipped" or not manly enough. Kudos!

California adopts historic 'yes means yes' rule on sexual consent

California adopts historic 'yes means yes' rule on sexual consent | Gender and Crime | Scoop.it

The governor of California, Jerry Brown, has signed a bill that makes the state the first in the United States to define when “yes means yes” and adopt requirements for colleges to follow when investigating sexual assault reports. State lawmakers last month approved a bill by Senator Kevin de Leon, a Los Angeles Democrat, as states and universities across the US are under pressure to change how they handle rape allegations. Campus sexual assault victims and women’s advocacy groups delivered petitions to Brown’s office on 16 Sept urging him to sign the bill. De Leon has said the legislation will begin a paradigm shift in how college campuses in California prevent and investigate sexual assaults.

Ziggi Ivan Santini's curator insight, January 24, 2015 10:23 AM

"The definition of consent under the bill requires “an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity. The legislation says silence or lack of resistance does not constitute consent."

 

This law must without a doubt be the most retarded invention in the history of radical feminism. Silence or lack of resistance can ABSOLUTELY mean consent, and anyone who claims otherwise has clearly never engaged in consensual sex with a woman before. People simply don't provide “an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement" before engaging in sexual activity. Expecting people to do so is like chasing a rainbow!
