I don't believe consent is a meaningful word in patriarchy. Just about everything men do is without women's consent, or women's police forcing the male population to cease its terrorism.

The war on terror would actually be when women rose up and decided to overthrow patriarchy. I hope I get to see that day.

I agree with you. And I wish men would understand that "consent" is questionalbe in social conditions where women are terrorised systematically.

This is not so much to say women can or cannot consent to sex. This is to say that men consent to raping women without women's consent.

"This is not so much to say women can or cannot consent to sex. This is to say that men consent to raping women without women's consent."

EXACTLY, and I was going to say that, then kept reading. Glad I did.

See men think that opening your DOOR to them is consent. Going on a date with them is consent. Accepting a gift from them is consent, smiling at them is consent, not telling them to FUCK OFF is consent, telling them to FUCK OFF is also consent (the "bitch" is just playing hard to get afterall, its all one BIG game for the menz to have a lil fun UGH)

Consent doesn't exist... it's skewed. I could decide tomorrow to share my body with a man, but that still means that a number of things could happen to me at his hand... things I didn't consent to, but would be seen as consent just by deciding to "give" him access to my body.

I see more each day what my lesbian sisters are getting at. Goddamnit they're smart.
