These days, talk of consent and consent education is increasingly common. I would argue that it is the most important part of school-based sex education, even though it is still not explicitly included as part of some provinces’ curricula. Of course, it’s one thing to tell people that they need to get consent about sexual activity, but having conversations about sex is hard! Kids and adults often don’t know how to have conversations about sex, or they are afraid that asking for consent just sets them up for rejection.
In this second episode in the 3-part series on sexual assault, I interview Karen BK Chan, an emotional intelligence, diversity, and sexuality educator from Toronto. BK talks about learning to feel our feelings, developing strategies to deal with rejection, and guilt resiliency. Everyone needs to hear what BK has to say! Find BK at http://www.fluidexchange.org/
