I trust we all support the need for consent, and by extension, the need to teach it to young people.

On the other hand, Ford's birthday isn't until November (?).

Sadly, I think a lot of parents are going to think that teaching young people about consent will mean teaching them it's OK to say yes, rather than teaching them how to say no.
