Columbia University was being criticized for not doing enough to raise awareness and educate people about rape and sexual assault on campus. So as a result the university came up with what is referred to as the sexual respect requirement that students have to undergo to become students there. Their latest campaign is being criticized by students.
Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian (The Point) hosts of The Young Turks discuss. Do you have any problem with this sexual consent campaign slogan? Let us know in the comments.

“Last year, in the wake of accusations from students that the school wasn’t taking sexual assault seriously enough, Columbia University introduced a new “sexual respect requirement” to the curriculum and enhanced the university’s Sexual Violence Response office. Student activists are unhappy with a brand-new slogan, “Consent is BAE”, complaining that it “trivializes consent and appropriates African American Vernacular English.”
A tipster emailed us and Columbia’s Bwog a screenshot of the new poster, which they said will be revealed during the upcoming New Student Orientation Program.”
