We're kicking off a new series today on the blog! Meet Ronnie, an Instagram Influencer and Doctor who believes in the importance of spreading awareness around consent culture. We sat down with Ronnie to ask her a few questions about why consent culture matters to her.
Why does raising awareness for consent matter to you?
I want to raise awareness for consent so that today’s kids can grow up in a time where there’s open communication and that’s the norm.
Were you taught about consent in sex ed class in school?
Do you think consent is black and white?
For the most part, I do believe consent is black and white- someone either does or doesn’t want to do something. However, when other substances such as alcohol, are involved, it makes consent a difficult subject to interpret.
I think with this #metoo movement, we all have a lot to figure out and learn about what is appropriate, and when to draw the line.
