I think you mean “Jana”
YES. I've been kink-adjacent (HEH) and many people in the BDSM community and other kinky people could do a master class in sexy consent. Many of them talk about it openly and enthusiastically and it is anything but antiseptic.
You ever see the movie the Girl Next Door? Your sex ed video idea totally reminds me of that and I totally agree.
Oh that's excellent!
Yes and I hope that people keep some stats on this and try to analyze the data because you make a good point around looking for evidence.
I don't know if you are a bad feminist for hating it—i think that it doesn't have to be long conversation but it might be something where you guys have some kind of idea of what is going to happen and there is positive communication.
That's a good question. I know that the NPR story, where I heard it from did not have conclusive results and even more so, the matter of understanding what a reduction means (i.e. there could be an increase in reporting, there could be a change around the parameters of what is considered an assault) is complicated.
I don't know. Maybe he did it badly.
I don't know. There are definitely people who have asked to kiss me and it didn't kill any mood.
I think you make a good point—explicit guidelines gives people a chance to learn more and understand more about consent. Sometimes it can serve a psychoeducational purpose to give these explicit guidelines and it strengthens community expectations around mutality.
Haha, I wouldn't pillory you. I think that it was really considered radical at the time and there was SO MUCH negativity around it. But looking at it now, yes, indeed, it seems much hotter when both parties really overtly discuss what they want.
Yes. Charter schools can be far more selective, while also trumpting their success rate, which is not ok.
I heard about all the reevaluations of property taxes, where everything was configured up. And the wage tax—man, I worked in Philly for a while and remember how significant it was. I've never seen a city tax that high.
I totally agree. The rest of the state isn't invested enough in Philly.
How about taxes for fracking? As long as our environment is getting ruined, PA should at least get some benefit.
Oh wow. I wish you could too!
Oh God, I couldn't agree more.
I love them so much.
