Rush Limbaugh really dislikes Ohio State University’s new sexual assault code, which requires that partners get “consent” for every sexual act, among other things.
“Seduction used to be an art. Now, of course, it’s ‘brutish’ and it’s ‘predatory,'” Limbaugh said on his radio show Monday.
“Consent must be freely given, can be withdrawn at any time, and the absence of no does not mean yes,” he continued, paraphrasing the new policy with a tone of disgust. “How many guys, in your own experience with women, have learned that no means yes if you know how to spot it?.. Are these not lawsuits waiting to happen?”
To clear up any further confusion for experienced men or otherwise, here’s what “no” actually means, according to Merriam-Webster’s dictionary: (adverb) “used to give a negative answer or reply to a question, request, or offer.”
As in, “No, I do not consent to having sex with you.”
