Limbaugh on consent

2016-10-13 16:09:57.416234+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Rush Limbaugh demonstrates that he understands consent, he just doesn't think you should care:

"You know what the magic word, the only thing that matters in American sexual mores today is? One thing. You can do anything, the left will promote and understand and tolerate anything, as long as there is one element. Do you know what it is? Consent. If there is consent on both or all three or all four, however many are involved in the sex act, it's perfectly fine. Whatever it is. But if the left ever senses and smells that there's no consent in part of the equation then here come the rape police. But consent is the magic key to the left."

Which makes so many things about modern American politics so clear: Why the threat of assault from trans people using bathrooms scares us, but the threat of assault from Donald Trump or your average United States Senator doesn't...

My problem is the flip side of Limbaugh's problem... "Consent" gets too slippery. Who consented to what and when? What proof is there? What happens when someone decides they didn't consent after the fact? Does this mean we need written or video-recorded consent? Does the entire encounter need to be recorded, to prevent someone from claiming they withdrew consent during it? Kinda kicks privacy and spontaneity in the nuts...

I dunno, I've got two thoughts there:

The first is that explicit consent can be sexy as hell.

The second is that if you don't trust someone enough to stay consented, don't fuck them. Because consent can be difficult to negotiate even in long-term committed relationships.
