I’ve had a few interesting discussions with people on Twitter about the broad concept of ‘consent’, which is obviously going to be a factor in the legal case. Again — I have no interest in trying the case in public. We haven’t heard from the defense and we’re only heard a little from the prosecution in the Probable Cause hearing. Let’s let the case play out. Let’s not rush to judgment.
One unhelpful thing some people say is ‘No means no.‘ It’s true. I agree that no means no. The problem is that this case is more complex that and as the transaction shows. That’s why these deeper issues of consent come into plau.
