    Actually, no, consent does not mean “saying yes.” It’s much more complicated than that.

    Consent, literally speaking, means to willingly accept the actions of another person. It’s a state of mind, and can be shown in a number of different ways. Washington state law states that consent can be shown through “words or conduct.”

    Lisak’s study only detects deliberate rapists. In order to answer yes to any of lisak’s questions, one must be aware that a behavior is unwanted. All the questions assume the respondent knew that his partner was unwilling.

    If a respondent were genuinely unaware of his partners reluctance, he would not answer yes to any of those questions.

    Don’t be an ignorant fanatic. Does every single kiss on the cheek require a verbal yes, even in a long term relationship?

    It’s just litigious paranoia.
