The same day that the White House announced plans to launch a campussexual assault awareness campaign aimed at engaging men in the fight against a largely hidden problem, Rush Limbaugh took to the air to offer up his own views. He specifically targeted Ohio State University’s new sexual assault code.
The code, among other things, requires partners get “consent” for every sexual act.
Limbaugh is not a fan.
“Seduction used to be an art. Now, of course, it’s ‘brutish’ and it’s ‘predatory,’ ” he said on Monday’s radio show.
“Consent must be freely given, can be withdrawn at any time, and the absence of no does not mean yes,” he said, as he paraphrased the OSU’s new policy. “How many guys, in your own experience with women, have learned that no means yes if you know how to spot it? Are these not lawsuits waiting to happen?”
