If you haven’t been living under a rock, you more than likely know that recently #azizansari
made headlines following the #goldenglobes
due to a sexual assault allegation from an encounter that occurred last year. The #metoo
movement has been gaining momentum, and some are saying this example...(where the girl initially consented but gave nonverbal “cues” as to her discomfort during the encounter), weakens the larger narrative of what specifically constitutes as sexual assault. Others are saying that this is a timely and important discussion that looks more at the nuanced and grey areas of sexual assault and consent. There are a lot of different opinions about what went down in general, here are some of my thoughts (link to full episode in bio). What did you think about the situation? Which thought camp are you in? Is this an example of “bad sex” in dating or sexual assault?
