Examples of consenting in a Sentence

  1. Professor Frankum:

    The whole consent issue is quite vexed. People sometimes feel they’re consenting to one thing and it turns out to be something else.

  2. Naomi Wolf:

    It’s inaccurate and wrong and in my view betrays a misunderstanding of 19th-century sodomy law and also shows they didn’t read the book clearly, i stand by my work. I cited everything I cited correctly, based on the proceedings of the Old Bailey. There was no carve out (under the then sodomy laws) for consenting gay sex as we would call it today. It was a crime.

  3. Andr Gide:

  4. District Court Judge Helen Syme:

    The reliability and honesty of the victim’s evidence was tested at length and in my view, her reliability was not in doubt. She said no several times, the use of force was such that the victim had no prospect of stopping him physically. He was at least twice her weight at 100 kilograms (220 pounds) and an athlete at the top of his form. The offender was fully aware the victim was not consenting.

  5. Chuck Grassley:

    The FBI does not make a credibility assessment of any information it receives with respect to a nominee. Nor is it tasked with investigating a matter simply because the Committee deems it important. The Constitution assigns the Senate, and only the Senate, with the task of advising the President on his nominee and consenting to the nomination if the circumstances merit. We have no power to commandeer an Executive Branch agency into conducting our due diligence. The job of assessing and investigating a nominee’s qualifications in order to decide whether to consent to the nomination is ours, and ours alone.
