What could possibly go wrong?
Via Campus Reform:
Student activists at California colleges are demanding children as young as kindergarten-age be taught consent education in order to curtail campus sexual assault.
According to a list of three demands from students at University of California, Berkeley; University of California, Santa Barbara; and San Diego State University, the state of California should teach sexual consent to K-12 students.
“We recommend consent education in K 12 [sic]. College is too late for people to learn about bodily autonomy and respect,” the request states.
According to Alejandra Melgoza, Take Back the Night coordinator at UC Santa Barbara, consent education would include teaching students to keep their hands to themselves.
“Concerned parents might think we’re talking about consent in a purely sexual context, when really we’re talking on a day-to-day basis,” Melgoza told The Huffington Post.
“Consent is not just for intercourse,” Meghan Warner, director of Associated Students of the University of California Sexual Assault Commission told HuffPo. “It’s for all aspects of our lives, and people aren’t understanding or being taught that.”
