I want to talk a little bit about the burgeoning movement for explicit consent laws. These laws change the typical standard from "no means no" to "only yes means yes." As the article puts it, "Students are now required to have 'unambiguous communication and mutual agreement' -- that's verbal consent - before sexual acts, or risk consequences."
