A British student is outraged that he was asked to take a class on sexual consent, and feels that it pains males in a negative light. George Lawlor wrote that he was invited to the class via Facebook, and felt that it was a “bitchy slap in the face.” Ana Kasparian (The Point), Margaret Howell (The Lip TV), Kerry Coddett and hosts of The Young Turks discuss.
Do you think Lawlor is overreacting or does his argument make sense? Let us know in the comments below.

“A British university student has sparked controversy after writing a post attacking sexual consent classes on student news website, The Tab.
George Lawlor, who is studying politics and sociology at Warwick University, wrote that he was invited to a class via Facebook, and found it “a massive, painful, bitchy slap in the face” and “the biggest insult [he’s] received in a good few years.”
Lawlor wrote in the article, entitled ‘Why I don’t need consent lessons,’ that he found it “hurtful” to be sent the invite, arguing that it implies he has “an insufficient understanding of what does and does not constitute consent.”
The student, who also writes for political blogging site Omnipolitics and is a member of Warwick’s Conservative Association, posted a photo of himself holding a sign saying ‘this is not what a rapist looks like’ to illustrate the piece.”
