Beyond ‘no means no’: What most parents aren’t teaching their sons about sexual consent
Washington Post ^ | October 4, 2018 | Samantha Schmidt

A mile east from the U.S. Capitol, on the eve of the hearing that would transfix a nation, 17-year-old Hollis Howe sliced his steak as he listened to his mother talk about sexual assault.

Holly Howe, 45, told him about a young patient who recently came into the emergency room where she works as a nurse. The woman had been found outside her apartment door, wearing a dress but no underwear, recalling nothing from the night. Hours later, after sobering up, “she looks at me and she goes, I think something happened,” Holly Howe recalled to her son and husband, Gerred Howe, at the dinner table.

“Do not ever, ever think that because you’re both drinking and you both think that it’s consensual, that it’s necessarily okay,” Holly Howe told her son.

Reinforcing the narrative with emotional personal stories.

This article at this time means that it’s to imply that Kavanaugh is guilty. Hoping the post goes bankrupt.

First, Washington comPost, therefore BHARF!

Second, some good advice:

Gentlemen: Only ever stick it in your wife.

Ladies: Only ever spread 'em for your husband.

You'll thank me later.

An men are criticized for opening the door for a woman. Part and parcel.

Thank you feminists. You reap what you sow.

Excuse me, was that a ‘No’ as some females use as foreplay? Or a No-No like Whoopi would use?

Kavanaugh was a virgin through high school and much of his 20s.

Same rules as handling a gun, don’t drink and handle guns don’t drink and handle female body parts. Doing either can ruin your life...

And what do Moms teach their girls? Screw them and sue them?
How does a blacked out girl remember if they were willing partners?
I would suggest boys capture on camera the before and after shots of
all sex.

Hey I got a better idea for parents.

Model good behavior and morals. Teach your children to wait until they get married for sex. Teach them to not allow themselves to get into situations where bad things can happen.

Yep. He followed the advice given above, and it helped expose Blasey-Ford's complete lack of credibility.

Ha, “No means no” was the constant chant around TN state house during the income tax battles. That was the birth of the TEA party. Every time we found out it was scheduled for a vote we would show up anywhere from 6 to 12 thousand strong and demonstrate at the State Capital bldg. Scared them to death to see all these moms and babies, blue collar types, and business men all standing shoulder to shoulder daring them to vote yes on a state income tax.

Without the huge help of Marsha Blackburn and Diane Black (back in their statehouse days) Tennesseans would be paying a state income tax today. Remember that Tennessee when you even think about voting for the liberal from Jersey, Bredesen.

She is conservative to her core and a huge Trump supporter.

What about when the guy says no and the woman yells “sexual assault” out of anger at being rejected?

I can’t imagine my mother ever having that conversation with me. It wasn’t something that was discussed.

Probably don’t date high school and college girls.

It is a huge risk. Huge risk.

“Do not ever, ever think that because you’re both drinking and you both think that it’s consensual, that it’s necessarily okay,” Holly Howe told her son.


So aside from the peculiar idea that if the woman thinks she’s consenting she isn’t...

Girls also need to understand that if they are substantially drinking, that it is *intentionally* losing control of the situation. That doesn’t mean morally that others should take advantage of the drunk, but it is also true that putting yourself in a situation and then removing your brain from it is extremely unwise if you don’t have a goal there, and devious if you do.
