A four-year-old named Theo takes on affirmative consent and the limits of four-year-old knowledge, via Ravishly:
Do you think it’s best to ask before kissing someone for the first time, or should you try it and see where it goes? People say it’s not romantic to ask permission but I want people to feel like I respect their space. — Grace from Rockridge
Yeah, you should ask. Because if they don’t want you to kiss them, then they say no. And if they do, they say yes. One day when I was going home, one friend tried to hold my hand and I felt sad.
I don’t know about romance, because I’m a four year old. Four year olds don’t know about romance.
