It’s Monday and Rush Limbaugh is talking about what constitutes consensual sex between college students. The conservative radio host kicked off the week with a look at Ohio State’s new policy on consent, lamenting the fact that it “takes all the romance out of everything.”
“Seduction used to be an art,” Limbaugh explained to his listeners. “Now of course it’s brutish and it’s predatory and it’s bad.” After reading off Ohio State’s definition of consent, in which students must “agree on why” they are having sex and must be sober when they do it, Limbaugh arrived at this line: “The absence of ‘no’ does not mean ‘yes.'”
This one seemed a bridge too far for the host. “How many of you guys, in your own experience with women, have learned that ‘no’ means ‘yes,’ if you know how to spot it?” he asked.
Perhaps realizing he said something that could be construed as controversial, Limbaugh added, “Let me tell you something, in this modern world, that is simply not tolerated. People aren’t even gonna try to understand that one.”
