We live in a time where the issue of “consent” is an extremely unpredictable subject. It mainly surrounds sexual assault, and even though it should be a fairly simple concept, so many people simply cannot “understand” the issue of consent (as the #MeToo campaign clearly pointed out).
You need to seriously rethink your morals if you think that an attractive person dancing in the club would appreciate an unsolicited slap on the a$$. Many people out there think like this, and we must say that they are a danger to the society.
Many debates have been started about at what age consent is necessary, and ABC has come under fire for airing a segment where a “sexuality expert” was asking for parents to ask for the consent of their babies when they need to change their diapers.
Expert Deanne Carson is discussing the issue of establishing a “culture of consent” in the video in the home, and she says it should start at birth. She even provided the mind-boggling example of diaper changing.
To make things even more ridiculous, she says that the baby is not going to respond, making her own argument invalid.
Mr Carson is a “sexuality educator, speaker and author” at Body Safety Australia, according to her Twitter page.
We must point out that their official website states that they work to protect children from sexual abuse with complete community solutions, which is a very beneficial and commendable cause.
We are all for teaching children about consent from a young age, because it will help for a better and safer world, but to ask for your infant’s permission to change its dirty diaper is a bit ridiculous.
