Weinstein finally opened his mouth at his sentencing and showed the world why we desperately need to #CodifyConsent in our laws!
When the jury asked his judge, Hon. James Burke, “What’s the legal definition for consent?’ all he could say was:
“Use your commonsense!”
Why? Because there’s NO DEFINITION for CONSENT in NY’s laws! And there is no definition in YOUR state’s laws either!
“It’s just – I’m totally confused – and men are confused about all these issues!”
Stop the confusion!
Only vote for candidates who pledge to #CodifyConsent in our laws! Tweet them, instagram them. Ask “Will you #CodifyConsent if elected? ” Only vote for candidates who pledge “#IWillCodifyConsent!”
Use the hastag #CodifyConsent whenever you comment on #SexualAssault! And make a list of all the candidates running for office in your jurisdiction. Ask them “If elected, will you #CodifyConsent.” The only acceptable answer is #IWillCodifyConsent!” Share this hashtag with your neighbors and friends. Ask them to do the same!
Together, we can make the world a safer place!
