Government’s intrusion into our bedrooms continues apace. Yesterday California Governor Jerry Brown signed California’s “affirmative consent” bill, which requires “each person involved in the sexual activity” to obtain explicit agreement from his or her partner to engage in said activity. If colleges don’t adopt this policy, they’ll become ineligible for state student financial aid. Though many mocked Antioch College for its 1993 policy requiring students to provide explicit consent at “each stage of intimacy,” it turns out the school was ahead of its time. Expect many more states, and possibly the federal government, to follow suit.

How ironic that as the 50th anniversary of the Free Speech movement is recognized at UC (http://www.latimes.com/local/education/la-me-berkeley-free-speech-20140928-story.html#page=1) we have the “grown ups” coming down on the kids’ fun, and also harassing non-conforming Christian groups at UC and CSU campuses.
