You know how I keep saying that Lynne Featherstone is made of awesome? Lookit this (trigger warning: this video deals with consent, and how to spot a lack of it. It's not pretty)

... and tell me that's stuff that didn't need to be said? Yes, it's hard-hitting, yes, it's not fun to watch. But it's necessary.

This could be as big as the AIDS videos were in the eighties, I reckon. I hope. Thanks, Lynne.

This next video tells the story of how the video was made and why:

The website that is linked at the end of the advert has some interesting stuff on it too: http://thisisabuse.direct.gov.uk/ has clear design and some interesting ideas, even if the attempts to talk teen are a bit cringeworthy. It's fairly heteronormative, but I'm not going to condemn the really good for not being perfect. More of this sort of thing, government, please, and less of the hammering of the poor and buggering up the NHS. That would be lovely.

That campaign is really good. For once a sexual assault campaign aimed at men and boys where it might have some effect. And certainly much better than "abstinence". The problem is the Dorries brigade will probably put the boot into it for the implication that consensual sex between teenagers might not be, as they suspect, as bad as if not worse than rape.
