I have a feeling this won’t be the first consent dating app).
Highlighting this are the recent Aziz Ansari misconduct allegations, which have inspired a growing dialogue surrounding conduct on dates and in romantic situations.
The snowball effect of sexual misconduct allegations is, of course, fuelled by the impossible-to-ignore movements of the past year; the Women’s March, #Me Too, and #Times Up.
The fiercely resonating #Me Too movement – which put workplace sexual harassment into collective public consciousness like never before – has surely changed workplace behaviour, prompting important conversations and a re-evaluation of office policies. It’s infiltrated the workplace in such a way that – as Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg pointed out in a post not too long ago – we’re now seeing backlash in the form of men not wanting to make eye contact with female employees and coworkers, never mind be in the same room alone with one of them.
On one, my date who sat next to me at a bar felt it was totally fine to put his hand on my leg and rest it there five minutes in; on another, my date wrapped his arms around me at a concert by the second song, despite the I’m-not-into-this vibe I had been giving off.
In short, in conversations I’ve had, men are terrified.Today there's a wide variety of sites and apps to suit your tastes, lifestyle, sexuality, and budget, from Tinder and Bumble for a quick swipe to like, to OKCupid and e Harmony for those who want their wit to show with their words.Any stigma over online dating has slowly evaporated over the years.I just hope it doesn’t face the same pushback as it does in the workplace, where men are no longer asking women on dates, have stopped making the first move when it comes to a (wanted) passionate first kiss, and become rigid robots in bed.I do, however, hope it serves as a wake-up call to make everyone wiser in the common sense and thinking-before-you-act departments.
