CONNECTICUT SENATE PASSES “SAY YES” SEXUAL CONSENT BILL: The Connecticut legislature this week approved a bill that would require all colleges and universities in the State to a “yes means yes” policy for sexual consent by students.  Shockingly, the bill passed with only one vote against it, by Senator Joe Markley (R-Southington). What happened to the other 14 Republican Senators?  The bill now must obtain House approval. An oped in the Hartford Courant by a retired University of Connecticut social worker, Cynara Stites, points out the perversity of the bill:

According to Sen. Mae Flexer, D-Killingly, who spearheaded this bill, college students would be required to “say yes” or indicate nonverbally through “physical cues” that they are willing to have sex with another college student.
