How to stop an Islamophobic attack
I recently saw an article on A+ featuring a brilliant cartoon by 'Maeril' showing how you can stop an islamophobic attack in four easy steps. The article repsonds to the growing frequency of such attacks. However, the real beauty of the steps shown are that they could be applied to any kind of verbal abuse - whether it is bullying, racial motivated, anti-religious etc.

Sexual consent has been talked about extensively in the media of late. It is often described as being a 'complicated' issue, which can mean people are given more leaway than they should when they act without clear consent. They key to consent is communication - if in doubt ask! The person you need consent from is right there, ask them if it's OK! If they say no, are not able to respond (because they are too drunk, for example) or seem unsure or ill at ease then consent has not been given.
A couple of really useful analogies have been written which express how straightforward consent actually is, click on the images below to read these analogies.
