Debatte über sexuelle Gewalt: "Ja heißt Ja reicht nicht, denn manchmal heißt Ja Nein"

When it comes to consent, it’s not enough to teach that “no means no” or even that only “yes means yes” — because sometimes “yes” can actually mean “no.”

At least that’s the point of view expressed in an op-ed written by Jordan Bosiljevac for Claremont McKenna College’s student newspaper, the Forum.

In the piece, Bosiljevac explains that she and her friends even came up with a phrase to describe someone having sex with you who you didn’t want to have sex with even though you told him that you did, which they apparently consider a form of rape: "We coined the term 'raped by rape culture' to describe what it was like to say yes, coerced by the culture that had raised us and the systems of power that worked on us, and to still want 'no,'" she writes in the April 30 article, titled "Why Yes Can Mean No."

Hier geht es weiter. Sie steigen endgültig nicht mehr durch? Das zeigt vermutlich nur, wie gefährlich die Rape Culture ist, wenn sie Sie dazu bringt, sexuelle Gewalt einfach so zu ignorieren.
