Paging Dr. NerdLove

Mar 15, 2018

This week we're doing something different. With the continuing progress of #metoo, #timesup and the questions about consent, there's no better time to talk about building towards a culture of enthusiastic consent. That's why I sit down with activist and writer Kitty Stryker, the editor of "Ask: Building Consent Culture" and talk about Aziz Ansari, what consent culture would look like, how society trains everyone to ignore their own boundaries and how to start examining the other ways we push boundaries - both our own and other people's.

Show Highlights:

  • How we get consent wrong
  • Why we find enthusiastic consent to be so scary
  • Why everyone makes mistakes regarding consent and how to handle them
  • How examining non-sexual consent makes it easier to talk about sexual agency
  • What it takes to build a society that prioritizes consent 

and so much more.
