Quick Hit: Consent Panties?

*TRIGGER WARNING*

Last semester I delved into my own thoughts about anti-rape underwear being marketed towards individuals worried about random encounters in unsafe situations. You can view my thoughts here. Just recently, Amulya Sanagavarapu, a student at the University of Waterloo, has put together a kickstarter campaign promoting her new line of consent-themed underwear.

Sanagavarapu hopes that her line, which she is calling “Feminist Style” will promote a conversation needed about boundaries. She does not want this to be something to protect women, but instead to open up discourse about sexual objectification. If you would like to read more about her new line, check out the BuzzFeed article! What do you all think? Is this about freeing the body from sexual objectification? Or promoting rape culture?
