No Means No. An Important Thread on Consent by Elnathan John

Over the past few months, in the wake of accusations about sexual harassment rocking different industries, I’ve had a couple of worrying conversations on the topic of consent that has really opened my eye into the work and the discussions that are needed within our communities.

Elnathan John, a Nigerian author and satirist was kind enough to explain consent through a brilliant analogy on his Twitter. Yet some of the responses I’ve seen to the analogy is indicative of how entrenched rape culture is, not only within the male psyche but also the female one as well.
