[rkdzthll] Consent as code switching

Consider teaching about consent culture nonjudgmentally.  This is contrast to current practices which treat cultures whose courtship rituals do not put emphasis on consent as inferior, and treating people from those cultures as inferior people: probably social class warfare.  Such presumption of inferiority in current teaching practices may not be effective in getting through to people of those cultures.

Instead, teach it as a common language useful for cross-cultural interaction, not making any judgment that someone's native language is inferior.
