Why Draw the Line
Many of us men have been socialized to think it is ok to sleep with women when they are drunk. This is sexual assault and we have the power to stop it.
When to Draw the Line
Consent matters. Anyone who is intoxicated cannot give consent. Only a sober yes means yes.
How to Draw the Line
Explain to your friend it isn't ok. As a bystander, there are several things you can do:
- Offer options: If he flirts with someone who is drunk, suggest he swap numbers to meet up tomorrow or just hang out with you.
- Discuss consensual sex: Finding someone who has the capacity to offer enthusiastic consent is more enjoyable.
- Remind him: Sex with someone who is drunk is not legal.
