Controlling Sexual Assault


For John, BLUFHow about undertaking school?  Nothing to see here; just move along.



It appears that up in New Hampshire someone has introduced legislation managing sexual encounters for college students.  Per Reporter Ashe Schow of The Washington Examiner, "New Hampshire 'affirmative consent' bill copies California's".  The Live Free or Die State?  Apparently.  Here is the article.

We are getting into serious Loco Parentis territory.  We are, in fact, returning to 1964, or maybe even 1954.  I remember, in the '60s and '70s, people talking about those of us who had graduated from the Air Force Academy as not being ready for social interaction, because of having been locked away for four years.  Are we returning to that sort of thing?

On the other hand, the human brain is not really fully developed until age 24, or so.  Maybe it is time for Colleges and Universities to return to a more traditional case of children passing from their parents to the school for further maturation.

However, a question is, what happens to the rest of the high school graduates and school leavers?  Who is monitoring the sex life of Sally the waitress and Sam the waiter, after hours?  If Sam goes too far, too fast, who is the Den Mother?  I would assume, the DA.  Sally has to go to the police.  Why isn't that the solution on Campuses?

Then there is the question of what if Sally and Sam are going to Cosmetology College? OK, my last question is, given that my wife and I are taking Continuing Education Classes at UMass Lowell, does this apply to my Bride of 40 some years and myself?

Did I mention that this is messed up? Regards  —  Cliff
