LinkGov. Jerry Brown announced Sunday that he has signed a bill that makes California the first in the nation to define when "yes means yes" and adopt requirements for colleges to follow when investigating sexual assault reports.
State lawmakers last month approved SB967 by Sen. Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, as states and universities across the U.S. are under pressure to change how they handle rape allegations. Campus sexual assault victims and women's advocacy groups delivered petitions to Brown's office on Sept. 16 urging him to sign the bill.
De Leon has said the legislation will begin a paradigm shift in how college campuses in California prevent and investigate sexual assaults. Rather than using the refrain "no means no," the definition of consent under the bill requires "an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity."
I just wonder how they are going to make it work. I mean, how two people are going to express or confirm their mutual consent before sex? Cause all these nods and movements are not solid especially when you are drunk. You need something more trustworthy, something that would prove you were serious – the next morning.
I suggest some fast sex consent services, preferably automatic, than would scan you two and print a written consent.
