    And now we'll turn drunken one night stands into rape. You think this isn't going to call in fights with high priced lawyers over the definition of "consent"? Nonverbal consent such as a nod....really? You see no problems stemming from this terribly written law full of floppy definitions? This is nothing more than knee jerk reactionary legislation that will come back to bite us.

    Another way to make grey what is essentially a he-said-she-said. The consequence of the former law was that it was difficult to convict guilty people. The consequence of the new law is that it appears easier to convict the innocent. Personally, I think convicting the innocent a graver offense than releasing the guilty. But perhaps that's just me.

    The new slogan is yes means yes, bc "no means no" did not prevent rapes. I hope they didn't waste money on this!

    I suggest some fast sex consent services, preferably automatic, than would scan you two and print a written consent.
    Are you suggesting that you don't know if the person you are having sex with has actually consented to have sex with you?

    Because if you don't, the law isn't your only serious problem.

    It seems to deal only with college students. I wonder why? Is there no confusion among other late teens and early 20 kids about whether sex is consentual or not?

    So Californians can't legally consent to sex when they're drunk? Yes means yes except when yes means no?

    It isn't clear whether any of the ranters here have any interest (or for that matter capability) of reading it but for sake of completeness, this is the actual bill in question; https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/f...201320140SB967
