Sexual Assault: UNIVERSITY AT ALBANY DEFINES CONSENT

Recently The "Assault" terms are becoming frequent. There are already some cases by now.
The University sent the following round up:


Sexual Assault Resource Center

got consent??

"YES" = ok = permission = CONSENT

When initiating SEX:
1. Asking does not mean an automatic NO.
2. Silence does not equal YES.
3. Consent cannot be given when "intoxicated."
4. If YOU are UNSURE about asking or telling then STOP.
5. Asking for an answer means you will KNOW when it is NO.
6. Know how to say YES or NO.
7. Know how to handle hearing YES or NO.

UNIVERSITY AT ALBANY DEFINES CONSENT:

"The term "ACTIVE CONSENT" means that each person involved in sexual
contact not only agrees to the sexual activity but also agrees freely
and knowingly. A person who has been threatened or coerced, whose
judgment is substantially impaired by drugs or alcohol or by physical or
mental impairment even if temporary, or who is unconscious or asleep,
cannot give consent to sexual contact. A person under the age of 17
years is deemed incapable of giving consent."

  2. Are they going to distribute cards so people can carry them in their wallet or purse?

    On a happier note, wondering if you might help me with a new project, point a camera out your window and shoot...what you see out your window.

  3. How about stopping back The Lives And Times... and send me an email; link in my profile.

    Would like to touch base on a couple things. I saw you moderate, so it seems this wouldn't be a bad way to communicate...unless you have an email somewhere I missed.
