Whether it's because they're sadly misinformed or wilfully ignorant, the fact remains that in 2016 there are still an awful lot of people out there who aren't clear on what constitutes rape.
Cue Nafisa Ahmed, who has come up with the most crystal clear way to explain consent since the 'would you like a cup of tea?' analogy.
Speaking to indy100, Ahmed said that she uses the metaphor in private conversations all the time - but she was motivated to post it publicly on Twitter because of recent high profile rape cases involving black men, and the respectability politics debate that has surfaced as a result.
Ahmed said she was surprised by how much the posts resonated with people:
I didn't expect for my 'thread' to get this type of exposure and attention whatsoever... In fact, I thought there was something wrong with my phone when my mentions first blew up.
