The whole ‘No Means No’ is a catchy phrase and can be shouted at the top of your lungs at rallies — I don’t think that this gets the message through — it implies that a woman is saying ‘yes’ until it is a ‘no’.

Let’s re-phrase:

“Only Yes Means Yes”

This stops the burden on the female to say no, and invalidates the plethora of excuses that men use:

  • “What she was wearing”
  • “What she was drinking”
  • “How she walked”

All the useless excuses that men use to try and justify their actions.

There is only one thought that needs to be understood in society:

Unless it is a 100% unequivocable, certain, indesputable, irrefutable, unquestionable, absolute YES, then it is a NO. No exceptions.

If, as a man, you don’t hear this — then it is a NO!
