            O.M.G. Andy – you’re stealing my adoration!

            Millie – you need to turn if off and back on again.

        Do you watch Brooklyn 99, Starina?
        “Title of My Sex Tape” is a running joke.

          Like everything else out nowadays, series 1/2 are good then they sqeeeeeeeeeze the bejapers out of it before it just fades away…like a fart in the wind. Tis a decent burn none-the-less.

        I don’t get how it’s creepy. You lot are an aggressive bunch. I understood it as it being a slight overkill with the identical posters right beside each other. But as usual here…if you’re not for it, you are against it! There is no other possible explanation accepted.

          A man makes a comment on a group of posters about consent saying “they’ll do well to remember” is a creepy comment because it’s basically saying “Women know your place.”

          I might accept that’s just my interpretation but mine is not the only retort.

            I took ‘they’ as ‘the students/people who put posters up’.
            Dy’a know what’s creepier…?
            “If you are a woman

            I’ll show you my peen.”

            …just sayin’

            I saw “they” as a group of mostly female activist students fighting on behalf of women not being sexually assaulted.

            Yes my rhyme is creepy. That was the point. It’s rhyming limerick to win a MAGA hat originally made famous by a man who has been accused multiple times of inappropriate sexual behaviour.

    Your clothes certainly don’t determine consent. They do give an indication of your intent. If I’m wearing board shorts, flip flops and am carrying a towel, it’s fairly likely I’m going to the beach.

      They do not give indication of your intent. Board shorts on their own can be worn without going to the beach.

            Is there something wrong with hanging out on your own goddamn couch in a pair of board shorts and flip flops with a towel? Maybe I am watching Point Break, the only movie about surfing I can think of? Hang on, also, ‘Surf Nazi’s Must Die!”, a real classic (or so I am told….)

            Did I miss the memo?

            Puritans the lot of ye I say, puritans…..

        The examples of this are endless. The point is, whether you like it or not, people judge and and make inferences about you based on how you present yourself. They can’t however infer any consent. If you’re wearing a sports kit walking down the street I might conclude you’re off to play a game. I can’t tackle you on the street and say your dress implied consent that you were willing to accept said tackle

      I’m sure clothes are one of any number of social clues a person can use to speculate about intent in another person, but even if you see someone attired for the beach, waling towards the beach, singing a song about how much they’re looking forward to hanging around on the beach, that does not mean they want to go to the beach with you, even if you ask nicely. No amount of speculation or guesswork based on non-verbal signals is worth anything if they tell you they don’t want to go to the beach with you. That’s the rule. That’s where any sense that you have them sussed based on their clothes ends.

    P.S. didn’t Bridget Jones face the dilemma of choosing the granny pants or the sexy knickers based on the probability of having sex? Not that it’s an exclusive authority on the issue but it is a movie made for women…

      1. Dr_Chimp

        I’m well aware it doesn’t equate to consent (see above). I like Ian-O’s tag line below which sums it up nicely.

        Sexy knickers in this case is as defined in the movie.

    Second picture – The “D!ck Pic” one. “Sponsored by the European Union” – Hard Brexit, indeed.

    What about the Context though – the App concerned – is this still for real, being developed, crowdsourced, etc? This strikes me as an epic ethics failure and lack of rigor on behalf of UCD academia… what’s the follow up?
