Campus Rape Activist Finds It Hard to Date Dudes

Well, that's not a surprise. But check out this part.

Chrissy Keenan, a UCLA senior, is the president of Bruin Consent Coalition, a campus group that works to raise awareness regarding sexual assault on campus. "When people know of me but they don’t really know the work, they hear the term 'feminist' or 'sexual-violence prevention,' they think, 'super-extreme, bra-burning feminism,'" she explains, which often puts people on the defensive.

Keenan herself, though, sometimes finds it hard not to go on the offensive. She's so used to laying down the nitty-gritty details of consent that she's been known to open romantic interactions with a spiel that feels straight out of a student handbook.

That sounds fun. Let's see how that works out for her.

She animatedly tells a story about a recent Tinder rendezvous:

Tinder. Great.

"One time, I agreed to meet with this guy at 8 or 9 at night. Before we met, I said to him, 'This is the work I do, I know the chief of police ... so, don't try and get creepy; I know all my rights.' And five minutes later, he was like, 'Actually, I'm really not OK with how you just assume I'm a bad guy. And I get very bad vibes from that, so we shouldn't hang out anymore.'"

"I was in a rage. He was a total fuckboy about consent," she said.

Rage? I guess his consent is not a concern at all. He did not consent to pursuing things, and she went, by her own account, into a "rage."

If I had to guess where this Love Connection went wrong, I would guess it was at the point where she met a guy for the first time and strongly implied he was a rapist, and she was ready -- even eager -- to call the police on him.

But that's just me.
