As a culture, we’ve come a long way in our understanding of consent. It’s discussed in schools, on TV shows, and in popular media. But through this mainstreaming of consent, we’ve also lost some important nuance along the way.
This conversation with Kitty Stryker is all about that nuance. From the complexities of consent within various power dynamics to the ways it shows up in every relationship, consent situations seem to be everywhere. Kitty lays down frameworks to help us reevaluate our personal relationships with consent and use what we learn to strengthen our bonds with friends, family, co-workers, romantic partners, and more.
Kitty Stryker Bio
Kitty Stryker is the author of “Ask Yourself: The Consent Culture Workbook” and the editor of “Ask: Building Consent Culture”, both from Thornapple Press. She was among the first to coin the term “consent culture”, writing in 2010 about the radical act of defining what you want to move towards instead of just what to avoid. A queer nerd, an asexual sex worker, an anarchist journalist; Kitty is often found blurring the edges of communities to forge coalitions and welcome more people in. She aspires to be Baba Yaga when she grows up.
