Dearest Harbinger Editors,

Upon reading a recent quote of mine in the March 2019 edition of the Harbinger (“It happens here too: Community feels impact of sexual assault, strives for solutions”), I feel it is crucial that I clarify.  While it was not a misquote, it was taken out of the context of a much longer conversation, and I fear that I sound like someone who is sympathizing or perhaps making excuses for those who do not engage in the process of consent.  To be crystal clear: You have to get consent.  Always.  Full stop.

I apologize for not saying exactly that in the first place.
