Ask A Feminist: Affirmative Consent. What Is It?

See, sex requires everyone in the room be on board for whatever is happening.

At any moment during a sexual encounter, something can change. Consent can be withdrawn.

SB 277, now known as California state law, strips parents of their right to informed consent while claiming that it's for their own good. Proponents of the law claim that it is necessary to mandate vaccinations in order to preserve herd immunity and to prevent a public health crisis. That is simply not the case.
