That "Consent" Video: Is It As Bad As What People Are Suggesting?


Article heading image for That "Consent" Video: Is It As Bad As What People Are Suggesting?

The federal government’s new consent education campaign is out here now and this morning, Pete, Matt and Kymba took it apart to see if the criticism it's copping is justified.

As you'll hear below, the team are on board with the criticism.

"'You're rich in this world.' What is this rubbish?,

"You can't talk about sex, especially consent, using euphemisms."

LISTEN:

The video has been widely panned for its confusing and convoluted messaging. Take a look and see for yourself.

WATCH:

As Kymba mentions, she thinks Chanel Contos says it best:

"People need to be equipped with the language that they actually use, so they can identify when they are victims or perpetrators of coercion."
