enthusiastic consent

This is a fantastic campaign and one which I hope is being used as an educational tool in schools and universities so both women and men learn young that nothing is an invitation to rape. People are raped because a rapist rapes them - that's the only reason for rape. I'd like to add to the no means no message that, just because a woman says "no" doesn't mean she's saying "yes". The absence of "no" is not enough - there should be enthusiastic consent.
