The New Magic Words

During his recent visit Tobias and i took a sauna at the lovely facility we have at Twin Oaks.   During one of the cooling rounds we were on the dock together and Tobias decided i should go in the freezing pond to experience it.  He came over and started lifting me up and moving me towards the edge of the dock.  I said no a couple of times and this did not slow him down.  Finally, slightly frustrated i said

You don’t have consent

And he stopped.  And i realized that this has attained, at least in the progressive/radical culture that i live in, the highest level of meaning.  I was quite pleased by this.
