"Consent" for dunderheads, a brilliant metaphor

If you’re still struggling, just imagine instead of initiating sex, you’re making them a cup of tea.

You say, “Hey, would you like a cup of tea?” and they go, “OMG, f*ck yes, I would f*cking LOVE a cup of tea! Thank you!” Then you know they want a cup of tea.

If they are unconscious, don’t make them tea. Unconscious people can’t answer the question, “Do you want tea?” because they are unconscious.
------
Okay, maybe they were conscious when you asked them if they wanted tea, and they said yes, but in the time it took you to boil that kettle, brew the tea and add the milk they are now unconscious. You should just put the tea down, make sure the unconscious person is safe, and — this is the important bit — don’t make them drink the tea.

5. Yeah, look at the troll collection it's attracted!

You know you've posted a good one when the trolls come out from under their rocks.

6. Yup

Interesting how that works.

Wonder if they know they're just kicking threads they infest?

7. Love it - so simple

Too bad about the troll droppings - but it looks like they went *poof* before anyone could read them. Poor fella.

8. Furthermore,

If you ask them if they want a cup of tea and they say yes while they are drinking it you spit in it, causing them to say "Ugh, I don't want that anymore!" you can't force them to continue to drink the cup of tea.

Consent is not an unbreakable covenant, it can be withdrawn at anytime by either party whether the person is conscious or unconscious. Just because someone says yes doesn't mean that can change it to a no later.
