Say yes. And yes. And yes...

George F. Will is not loved very much by the politically correct crowd, I guess. So what, he certainly delivers.
This year, for example, we learned that California’s Legislature includes 93 people who seem never to have had sex. They enacted the “affirmative consent” law, directing college administrators to tell students that sexual consent cannot be silence but must be “affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement” and “ongoing throughout a sexual activity.”
Just this single quote caused me a real ROFLMAO moment. Just think about implementation of that law a bit: wouldn't the necessity of the word "yes" being repeated all the time (by both sides of that sexual congress, I presume) create a soundtrack* so typical for a cheap porn flick?

But read the whole article, it's certainly a treasure of tomfoolery. Enjoy.

(*) Although, I have to say this is not the only way to express consent. For some reason a slate hanging in a public restroom of a five star hotel (that will remain unnamed) came to mind.  The janitor responsible for that restroom has to sign in every half an hour or so on this slate, filling in the time of his visit and his signature. Of course, half an hour is too long a time interval for the activity discussed above. But, most probably, two or three minutes intervals will be OK with the California's elected leaders. And no soundtrack!
