Nova Scotia university students say alcohol use and others’ drinking are causing problems, saysa study released Wednesday.
The review by Students Nova Scotia contains 31 recommendations for student unions, a news release said.
When it comes to sex, a reluctant “yes,” “OK” or “sure” doesn’t qualify as a green light, according to a Canadian campaign encouraging “enthusiastic consent.”
“Real consent is mutual and sure. It is not muted, frail, hesitant, or afraid. It is never uncertain, assumed, or silent,” the campaign explains on its website, MoreThanYes.ca.
When it comes to sexual consent, yes might not mean yes. Unless it’s YES.
That’s the gist of a college anti-rape campaign in Canada that’s gaining attention.
Students Nova Scotia, a coalition of students from colleges around the province, has released a series of posters urging coeds in the province to use “enthusiastic consent” as the green light for when the moment is right.
Nova Scotia students who see the posters are going to have to lean in to read the fine print.
The message is that if they find themselves struggling like that during a sexual encounter — unable to understand what their partner wants — it’s best to call it a night.
