Watch: What Do Making Tea And Consent Have In Common?


The #ConsentIsEverything campaign compares assessing consent to making a cup of tea. And it's actually pretty brilliant.

A new video was released by the campaign #ConsentIsEverything designed to help people struggling with consent by comparing it to making a cup of tea. And it makes a lot of sense. 

"Together, we can stop rape by ensuring everyone knows when they have sexual consent – and when they do not," their website says.

"Sex without consent is rape. Rape happens to people of all genders and sexualities. About 92 percent of victims are female and eight percent male," they write. "Most rapes occur between people who know each other in some way. Make sure you get consent." 

Basically, the video offers help to people who don't understand the basis behind consent, using the analogy that if someone doesn't want a cup of tea, would you therefore force them to drink the tea? Of course not, thereby why would you force anyone to do anything they don't want to do (including sex)?
