A Radical TransFeminist on Consent

10 January 2012

“No Means No” claims to give the no-sayer all the power, but what it actually gives them is all the responsibility.

This piece from A Radical TransFeminist is one of the best posts I’ve read in a long time.

I especially liked the “That’s Not What I Meant” and “You Know What I Meant” section. Clear and spot-on!  It cannot be emphasized enough how much macro- and micro-pressure is involved in our ability to refuse sex, and the psychological bullshit many people will pull to exploit that pressure.  Rapists know how difficult it can be to refuse.

Totally looking forward to Part II of the post!
