Discourse: “How difficult can it be to not rape someone? You just fucking ask them and listen to their answer! Yes means yes, no means no. If you’re still confused about it, it just means that you’re a rapist … Anyway, here are ten different ways in which patriarchy teaches women to never say ‘no’, so you have to recognize it when the ‘yes’ is fake, and twenty different situations in which consent in invalid, although we’re still arguing about #15.”

Look, either consent is simple, no explanation beyond “yes means yes” is needed, and everyone who still has has reservations is a shitlord, or it has a shitton of nuance stemming from complicated power structures and imperfect modes of communication, in which case let’s talk about them, but you don’t get to say that only horrible people may have any troubles with understanding all this.
