Gov. Brown signed the bill that defines consent as voluntary agreement as opposed to the lack of resistance.
"Yes means yes" is the first law in a US state to make the language of affirmative consent a central principle of school sexual assault policies.
The rule defines consent as “an affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity.”
The bill also sets out that someone who is drugged, drunk, unconscious, or asleep cannot grant consent.
The National Coalition For Men said it “sets the stage for ruining innocent lives” and amazingly they weren’t talking about sexual assault, but rather the potential for false accusations to increase.
