What do young people REALLY think?
So I've just finished watching BBC3's documentary about where young people stand over the debate on consent.
I have to say I have never been so wound up and angry over a TV programme before. The things some of these YP have come out with is acrually quite scary. If you haven't seen it, it is currently on iPlayer. If not, a brief outline of it was that a mixed group of young people aged 16-18 were taken to an undisclosed location for a few days and their views on consent were put to the test. They were shown a dramatisation in three parts which written specifically for this documentary and they had
to decide whether they thought what they were being shown was classed as rape or sexual assault or whether it was simply a misunderstanding.
What do the rest of you think? Did any of you see it? Do you think consent should be something taught on the National Curriculum or in PSHE lessons in schools? I'm interested to see what the rest of you all think.
I am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions.
