Correction To Our “Consent Is Sexy” Pamphlets

If you’re at Concordia, you have have (hopefully!) seen our new pamphlets on safer sex and consent, titled “Consent Is Sexy/Let’s Talk About it”.

In the section of the pamphlet on On-Campus Resources, the blurb about the 2110 Centre for Gender Advocacy states that:

The Centre for Gender Advocacy is the site of Concordia’s Sexual Assault Centre

Simply put, this is wrong. The sentence should read, “The Centre for Gender Advocacy is the site of Concordia’s Sexual Assault Centre Campaign“.

At the 2110 Centre for Gender Advocacy, we have been working hard on expanding our resources and services for survivors of sexual assault, with the intention of building a strong foundation for Concordia’s first Sexual Assault Centre to be established with the support of the university itself. However, services and resources to not themselves a Sexual Assault Centre make.

As the individual who put the pamphlets together, I want to apologize for the error. It’s misleading wording, and I’m upset that used it and that it took so long for me to notice the error. The next printing of the pamphlets will contain the clarified wording.
