The older I get
The more I begin to see this play out
1 in 4 women and 1 out of 6 men are sexually abused in their lifetime; (Department of Justice) In 8 out of 10 rape cases, the victim knows the attacker; (Department of Justice)
In case you never heard or someone never told you….
Consent is easy
It can be taught to a child
If she’s not into it
It’s not cool
If she changes her mind
No is a full sentence
If you’re at work
Just treat all the women like they are Dwayne Johnson
You’ll be ok.
Consent doesn’t have to be difficult or confusing. It’s really that simple.
And of course this goes for everyone.
I know, you never really know a person.
Or what goes on behind closed doors
I know men get told a lot of what to do and what not to do
But the same goes for women…
Just because he’s aroused doesn’t mean he’s consenting
There’s that confusion even for the victims of all events ——
Just because you’re married doesn’t mean you’re owed anything
You still need consent
If no one ever told you
You don’t have to hook up at work
Or with your boss
Your job can be just that
So you can pay bills
Consent is when you’re both excited about it
Nothing should be a duty
Or a chore
Or a burden
Life is too short for that
So if you’ve never heard
Now you’ve heard
