I want to throw up
I want to make out with you
I want to slam my head into the pavement
“Yes” doesn’t always mean “yes” when you haven’t created a situation in which your partner feels comfortable saying “no.”
I feel like this should be obvious. But every time I see someone say “yes means yes; no means no” I cringe a little. Consent isn’t always that simple.
Do you ever think about the fact that the US has created and legitimized a system of institutionalized inequality by funding schools through property taxes? That basically a child’s education is only as good as the value of the property in their neighborhood. Funny how education is so often viewed as an equalizing factor when there is nothing equal about it.
