Don’t patronise us! Freshers at York University’s first sex consent classes stage protests by walking out in disgust

Our thanks to Paul F for this, and several tips of the hat to Ben Froughi. An extract:

One consent class saw a quarter of freshers walk out in disgust and handfuls walked out of several of the others.

Campus activist Ben Froughi, 23, a third-year accounting student, stood outside some of the sessions handing out fliers and encouraging students to boycott the talks if they disagreed with them.

‘Consent talks are patronising,’ he said. ‘If students really need lessons in how to say yes or no then they should not be at university.

‘There is no correct way to negotiate getting someone into bed with you. In suggesting that there is, consent talks encourage women to interpret sexual experiences that have not been preceded by a lengthy, formal and sober contractual discussion as rape.

‘Consent talks propagate the backward message that all women are potential victims and all men potential rapists.’

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

  1. It’s good to see this – but it would be even better if no one turned up at all from the start.
    There would be nothing like an empty room to kill the offensive beast stone dead.

  2. I wonder what the feminists of the NUS will be doing now/ I would imagine they will endeavour, as in some U.S. colleges, to make the classes compulsory and tied in with compulsory modules forming a common core for any degree.
    The Dailymail link supposedly had a quote from the University of York with the by now familiar subservience of college administrators i.e. tow the SJW/feminist line.
