A bland comic about consent, on the occasion of Sexual Assault Prevention Month

So… it’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This actually wasn’t the idea of the current president, although he seems to be taking credit. Obama first recognized April as SAAM in 2010, but I’ll be honest that this is the first time I’ve heard of it. Should we feel grateful that an important movement that began in the ’70s had gained national attention, or disgusted that it’s received more press than ever because our president is a rapist? I can hold space for both, I guess, but it’s about 20/80 for me. Anyway, here’s a comic from artist The Walnut Bowl, in collaboration with the University of Minnesota Stress and Trauma Lab. 

It’a pretty long. See the full comic here.
