WARWICK: It seems as if people are being FORCED to attend 'consent workshops' Watch

    I think about a year or so back, there was this hoo-ha with a student being invited to attend a consent workshop. He was disgruntled as he felt he was being labelled as a potential rapist because he is male.

    However, I just found this page on the SU website about the 'I <3 Consent' workshop. I know there is a message on the page saying that the website is being updated, but still...

    I am going to be starting at Warwick in September, and do not like the idea of two people from every society being forced to attend this absurd workshop. It should at least be OPTIONAL.

    The following statements are particularly concerning:

    "Attendance at these workshops will be mandatory for at least two members of each society and sport executive committee. Sports and societies will be encouraged to talk to their members about the issues raised and even run their own ‘I Heart Consent’ campaigns."

    "***Disclaimer*** Please be sensitive when talking to your executive members about who is going to attend, as the workshops discuss issues of a sensitive nature which some people may find triggering."

    For f*** sake!

    EDIT: Just noticed I've probably put this in the wrong forum. So if a mod could move it that'd be great.

    You'd think they'd ask for consent to attend the consent workshops.

    Mandatory workshops on consent? That's disgraceful. That's absolutely insulting and degrading. I would write to a newspaper to shed light on this because that is just steeped in irony.

    Oh, suck it up; it's an hour of your time. If the whole thing prevents a single rape or sexual assault, it'll have been worthwhile.

    It's not the end of the world. You're being forced to attend a workshop, not forced to have sex against your will.

    And unless you only join societies with only yourself and one other person as members, you are not being forced to go at all...

    I'm under the impression that the two members of each society are meant to be from the society's committee. Stop whinging, you're not being made to go.
