Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has actually bragged about committing sexual assault, on tape. Then dismissed it as mere “locker room talk.” While Trump and his surrogates have tied themselves in knots trying to come up with new ways of defining and defending his behavior. But the concept of consent is actually quite simple, and when someone grabs, kisses or touches another person’s genitals without consent, that is what is known as sexual assault. “There’s no gray area here,” say Emily Crockett and Liz Scheltens, “
“Consent is not a difficult concept. It’s also not optional when it comes to sex.”
In fact, the concept of consent is straightforward. Simply put: does that other person want you to do the things that you are doing? If not, and you do it anyway, then you have engaged in a sexual assault.
