AUDIO – DESCRIPTION:
On January 21, 2015, Freedom Party leader Paul McKeever published his essay “Simon Says Sex: The Nature and Purpose of the ‘Affirmative Consent’ Campaign” on his blog, http://blog.paulmckeever.ca. Eight days later, on January 29, 2015, McKeever was the guest of the Just Right radio program (hosted by Robert Metz and Robert Vaughan). The discussion canvassed, in brief, most of the points raised in McKeever’s essay. McKeever explains that affirmative consent – a radical feminist approach to determining the presence or absence of consent to a sexual act – is a revolutionary idea that replaces the presumption of innocence with the presumption of guilt, and that serves to drive the sexes apart as a means to a communist end. Ontario’s premier, Kathleen Wynne, has instructed Liz Sandals, the Minister of Education, to add “consent” to Ontario’s sex ed program (which already teaches about consent) and McKeever points to some clues that the sex ed program might instead be introducing the teaching of affirmative consent.
NOTE: The segment on affirmative consent ran for the last three quarters of the show.
