Here’s some fantastic news for your Friday: On Thursday, the California Senate unanimously approved a new bill that defines sexual consent as a firm “yes” rather than a lack of “no.”
This is a big win for anti-rape activists, many of whom have been touting the necessity of an “affirmative consent” standard for years. California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has the next month to sign the bill into law. If he does, schools across the state would be required to define consent before engaging in sexual activity as an “affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement” or risk losing state financial aid funding.
Listening to the Steins;Gate soundtrack leads to looking up GIFs of Okabe, looking up GIFs of Okabe leads to falling in love with him all over again, falling in love with an anime character leads to embarrassing Tumblr posts.
I BLITZED through my copy of issue 3, and I’m excited to see where this is going! More plot please!
