It's All About Consent This Valentine's Day
Valentine’s day is meant to be a fun day of love, romance, and plenty of chocolate. Perhaps you plan to go out to a nice dinner with your significant other. Maybe the night’s plans involve an evening in, relaxing on the couch. Or maybe your plans are to go out hoping to meet someone new. Whatever your plans for this international day of love, remember CONSENT IS EVERYTHING!
What is Consent?
Consent is a clear “yes.” Consent is fluid and can be revoked at any time. Consent is not forced, coerced, or persuaded out of someone. It is a clear, enthusiastic, and freely given “yes” to any one specific action. Consent is conscious and not intoxicated. It cannot be bargained for. Consent must be of an individual’s own free will.
So remember, this Valentine’s Day…
