Sex Expert Says Parents Should Ask Babies’ Permission Before Diaper Change — It Creates ‘Culture of Consent’

A sexuality educator based in Australia is urging parents to ask their babies’ permission before changing their dirty diapers, hoping the inquiry will encourage a “culture of consent.”

Deanne Carson made the comment during an interview this week on Australia’s ABC News, suggesting parents ask their infants something like, “I’m going to change your nappy [diaper] now, is that OK?”

She explained:

“Of course a baby is not going to respond, ‘Yes, mum, that’s awesome, I’d love to have my nappy changed.’ But if you leave a space and wait for body language and wait to make eye contact, then you’re letting that child know that their response matters.”

To those who criticized her line of thinking, Carson suggested it’s their loss for not recognizing her efforts toward “giving infants bodily autonomy,” she wrote on Facebook:

“One in three girls, one in seven boys will be sexually assaulted by the time they are eighteen years old,” she continued. “One in twelve girls will be sexually abused before their sixth birthday.”

Carson went on to argue that the work she does with children helps them understand their rights “and connects them with people who care and can help.” She said her methods — presumably including those involving infants — “invites their parents into the discussion and is sensitive to cultural and family values.”

“Troll me all you want, add to your blog inches, but remember that when you do, you are negating the voices of these brave survivors of sexual abuse,” the sex expert charged.
