Affirmative Consent is not an Effective Way to Prevent Rape

This popular video created by the British police has been used and parodied at US universities and public schools to facilitate a discussion on “affirmative consent.”
Parents would assume that “consent” lessons would review legal issues such as age of consent and assault laws, strategies to avoid risky situations, and advice on how to handle a difficult situation.
Affirmative consent is not an effective way to prevent rape.  Parents need to review the Human Sexuality Instruction in their schools, communicate the law and good advice with their children, and monitor their activities.
