m. m. started this petition to Governor Andrew M. Cuomo

New York state is an affirmative consent state. This means that in order for any sexual activity to occur, there must be an enthusiastic “Yes!” from BOTH parties. There’s no denying that most teenagers learn what they know about sex from porn or their friends. Porn tends to leave out consent, considering they are all payed actors and actresses. It’s also no secret that the sex education NATIONWIDE is absolute garbage, especially in Catholic or strict religious schools. This will not be acceptable anymore. 1 in 6 American women will find themselves victim to some kind of sexual violence, as well as 1 in 30 men. An American is sexually assaulted every 73 SECONDS, and every nine minutes that American is a CHILD. We NEED consent courses for high schoolers in New York, for public, private, and same sex schools alike. This is not a suggestion, this is a necessity. DO NOT FAIL THE FUTURE OF NEW YORK.
