Can we talk about consent and alcohol? (self.SRSDiscussion)
7 ups - 4 downs = 3 votes
I'm an upperclassman in high school, and I've recently gotten into drinking and partying. Nothing really crazy or over the top, just your standard high school stuff. However, at the last couple of parties, I got pretty drunk and made out with a couple of other drunk teenage girls. I'm a guy, and I just want to know how far is too far. While my decision making skills might be impaired, it is absolutely no excuse for any kind of rape and I just want to be perfectly clear on what is okay, and if consent is even obtainable while intoxicated before I make a huge mistake and violate someone.
Now I've been going on SRS and its other subreddits for the past couple of months, and I gotta say you guys are great and you've taught me a lot about being sensitive to others, checking my privilege, and of course consent. I can't seem to find it, but I remember someone posting a neat image for deciding what is/isn't consent, and that helped. Now I'd like to get some advice and information on consent when alcohol is brought into the picture. Thanks
