NEW YORK (PIX11) – CNN columnist Roxanne Jones gave some interesting advice to her son going off to college: Get a “yes” text before having sex.
In her latest column, Jones says that in order to protect her son from getting falsely accused of rape, she’s encouraging him to get text message confirmation from the girl beforehand that the act will be consensual. “Watch out for the stupid girls,” Jones tells her son. “They are trouble.”
The “stupid girls” Jones is referring to are the “party girls, the girls who thrive on attention. The girls who will do anything to get a guy to notice them.”
Jones says that in addition to giving her son 300 condoms to bring to school, she told him to “never have sex with a girl unless she’s sent you a text that proves the sexual relationship is consensual beforehand. And it’s a good idea to even follow up any sexual encounter with a tasteful text message saying how you both enjoyed being with one another — even if you never plan on hooking up again.”
Many across the internet are enraged over Jones’ column.
CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin even joined in on the conversation on Jones’ column.
Jones also says, “Make no mistake, no woman — no matter how much she parties — is asking to be raped. But too often when heavy drinking is involved, the meaning of consent can be misconstrued.”
“Nobody wants to be a stupid girl,” Jones writes. “It’s time for us girls to smarten up. And it’s time for guys to understand — when a girl is way drunk, it doesn’t make it open season on her. In fact, it’s just the opposite: If she’s falling down drunk, stay away, far away.”
