A few days ago, a debate broke out on my facebook news feed regarding consent. The issue was whether consent can be withdrawn during the act itself or not.
A few people argued that if consent was given prior to the sexual act, then if the consent is withdrawn midway, it doesn’t count as “serious rape”.
The idea that there can be a serious or non-serious rape notwithstanding, rape is rape according to me. So, I dug out a nifty flowchart for consent (before and during sex) that one should always follow.
