Meanwhile in the Soviet Republic of California...

Am I the only one surprised at how puritanical the liberals have become?
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — State lawmakers on Thursday passed a bill that would make California the first state to define when “yes means yes” while investigating sexual assaults on college campuses.
The Senate unanimously passed SB967 as states and universities across the U.S. are under pressure to change how they handle rape allegations. The bill now goes to Gov. Jerry Brown, who has not indicated his stance on the bill.
Sen. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, said his bill would begin a paradigm shift in how California campuses prevent and investigate sexual assault. Rather than using the refrain “no means no,” the definition of consent under the bill requires “an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity.” Earlier versions of the bill had similar language.
"Hey girl, this party's lame. Want to come back to my place?"

"Sure..."

"All right, first I'll need you to fill out these forms in triplicate. Sign here, here, and here, initial here..."

Continuing our exercise in crimethink, also known as pattern recognition, this is another transparent attempt by women to make the post-hoc rationalization of their feelbad into law. No unmarried man gets invited into an unmarried woman's home after a night of drinking and thinks that she just wants to "hang out." A friend of a friend who works as a law clerk said that the definition of "drunk" in these cases will mean a complete loss of faculties. Very well, if she still has some control of her faculties then why is she allowing a guy she just met into what any reasonable person would see as a compromising situation?

Our grandparents had more sense than this. Young women did not accompany strange men into places where they would be alone because they knew one or both of them might give into passion. At the very least, the woman would be socially shamed. A white knight acquaintance of mine said this means our grandparents were barbaric because maybe she just wanted to hang out. Right.

In practice, consent will mean whatever the presiding judge wants it to mean. Maybe she gave consent because she was buzzed, or being peer pressured, or too horny for her own good. Previous verbal or written consent shall not be used against a young lady in a court of law.
