California Bill Would Require All College Sexual Encounters to Be Approved by College Administration or the State

I am not making this up. From California Senate Bill 967:
This bill would require the governing boards of each community college district, the Trustees of the California State University, the Regents of the University of California, and the governing boards of independent postsecondary institutions, in order to receive state funds for student financial assistance, to adopt policies concerning sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking that include certain elements, including an affirmative consent standard in the determination of whether consent was given by a complainant...
 An affirmative consent standard in the determination of whether consent was given by both parties to sexual activity. “Affirmative consent” means affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity. It is the responsibility of each person involved in the sexual activity to ensure that he or she has the affirmative consent of the other or others to engage in the sexual activity. Lack of protest or resistance does not mean consent, nor does silence mean consent. Affirmative consent must be ongoing throughout a sexual activity and can be revoked at any time. The existence of a dating relationship between the persons involved, or the fact of past sexual relations between them, should never by itself be assumed to be an indicator of consent.
In other words, before sex could occur, a form something along the lines of this would have to be filled out perhaps multiple times during an encounter.


  1. The state of California is stealing Dave Chappelle's "Love Contract."

  2. I have to that contract real?

  3. On the bright side, schools will be able to track down STD's much easier.

  4. The Onion writers are in deep trouble. How can they possibly top this stuff?

  5. Well judge she was sitting on my face and I realized she hadn't bathed, and I told her politely that I revoke my consent, but she wouldn't stop and as I breathed the odiferous air I passed out.
