Leftist Says We Should Ask Babies Consent to Change Diapers

Deanne Carson, an Australian “sexuality educator,” went on ABC (the Australian one) to talk about creating a culture of consent in the home. So far, so good, right? The thing is, Carson thinks creating a culture of consent means asking babies, from birth, if they consent to having their “nappies” (diapers) changed.

Host: How young are some of the children you talk to?
Carson: We work with children from two years old, we work with parents from birth.
Host: From birth?
Carson: Yeah, yep. Just about how to set up a culture of consent in their home. So “I’m gonna change your nappy now, is that ok?” Of course, a baby’s not gonna respond “Yeah, mum, that’s awesome, I’d love to have my nappy changed.” But, if you leave a space and wait for body language and wait to make eye contact, then you’re letting that child know that their response matters.

Umm what? With a newborn, this is patently ridiculous, because they have no idea what you’re asking. With a child old enough to know what you’re asking, they’re likely too busy playing to give consent. They never want their diaper changed, there are legos to be built.

Of course, this isn’t new, it’s just dumb. Plenty of Australians agreed.
