Expert chat: Enthusiastic Consent & Conditional Consent (Wed 21st February)

Hey everyone!

On Wednesday 21st Feb at 6.30pm, Sarah our expert, will be running an expert chat about Enthusiastic Consent and Conditional Consent.

Sarah is the co-founder of Scarlet Ladies, a community of women with the aim to destigmatise and normalise the conversation around female sexuality.

Suffering from post traumatic stress disorder after experiencing a number of traumas, including rape, Sarah is reclaiming her body by engaging in bodybuilding and powerlifting. Taking back control of her sexuality, she is currently remaining abstinent. Working and campaigning with other women for the sexual empowerment of women has been an integral part of her healing journey.

Post of The Month

One-in-a-million is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Just a bit of fun here if you could create an advent calendar what would you put in it and why.

For me you would still get chocolate 😆😆
But inside each door is a task for the day. Something that includes you helping/talking to others, doing something festive and spreading Christmas cheer
For example

1. Tell your parents/carers you love them
2. Say hello when passing an OAP (that might be the only thing someone says to them all week)
3. Watch a Christmas movie
4. Help someone in need e.g put some spare change in a charity box, buy a warm drink for the homeless person who sits on the corner, dothe washing up ha ha ha😂
5 make hot chocolate
6. Visit your grandparents (if you don’t already) They will more than likely love to see you.
7. Sing a Christmas song with a friend
8. Dress up in something Christmasy when you do your shopping.

You get the idea 😂😉 my reason for this is to get people in the mood and understand what Christmas actually means.

What would yours have and why."

  • RANT (I dont expect replies)!

    So today I found out I got a D (49%) in my first maths assessment in exam year. You might think "wow, shes bothered about her first assessment", but I'm actually embrrassed to write that shockingly low number😂

    But what I don't get about schools is why on earth they give you a huge row for getting a bad mark... like, why not just help me to improve😂 and now my tracking is going to go down😂😭

    and if I'm getting D's in my assessments now, and mocks are in January, I probably won't be much better by then. Thing is they've set my target grades really high, so of course I'm under pressure!!

    Sorry, rant over.

    Sorry you feel so upset from this grade. I get what you mean about the teachers not being supportive. Have you went and spoke to one of your teachers about it and asked what you can do to improve?

    Just because you got a D now, it doesn’t mean you will get the same in your mocks you have a few months still to work on what your struggling with and get support and hopefully when it gets to your mocks you will feel ready for it.

    Also, as someone who had already been through gcse’s. Don’t worry about your grades too much. I panicked soo much during my exams and now I realise that I shouldn’t have got so worked up about them.

    You can only do your best!

      Thank you so much Esme. I spoke to my maths teacher yesterday and she as helpful, but it's the support woman (who I have previous and ongoing problems with) who was the main problem! But that's a whole other rant!

      Again thank you do much!
