Sexual consent and rape should be discussed in Ontario sex ed classrooms

The Steubenville incident has brought to our attention that rape culture is very much alive in today's western society. It has brought to our attention that some of our youth's understanding of "sexual consent" is in fact very flawed. While many people have a good understanding of what sexual consent means, some do not. Youth need to be taught that rape is rape, whether the victim was intoxicated or not, dressed scantily clad or not. With a lack of a "yes" there is a lack of consent. With an inability to give consent, there will be no consent. Rape culture in youth is extremely alarming and Ontario schools need to keep youth informed and educated about what consent really means to prevent more kids from thinking this way.
