Have You Seen This Viral Video Breaking Down Consent?
Inspired by tweets from Nafisa Ahmed, BuzzFeed produced a viral video about rape and consent that has since surpassed 1.5 million views.
"I don't get how rape is so hard to understand for some men," Ahmed commented on Twitter. "But, if you put it like this, they get it:"
If you ask me for $5, and I'm too drunk to say yes or no, it's not okay to then go take $5 out of my purse... Just because I didn't say no.— nafisa ahmed (@thatxxv) August 16, 2016
Ahmed continued to post tweets about the definition of consent.
If you put a gun to my head to get me to give you $5, you still stole $5. Even if I physically handed you $5.— nafisa ahmed (@thatxxv) August 16, 2016
If I let YOU borrow $5, that doesn't give the right for your FRIEND to take $5 out of my purse.— nafisa ahmed (@thatxxv) August 16, 2016
"But you gave him some, why can't I?"
If you steal $5 and I can't prove it in court, that does NOT mean you didn't steal $5.— nafisa ahmed (@thatxxv) August 16, 2016
The 23 year old inspired a BuzzFeed video promoting the simple message that "consent is simple."
