Oxford Updates Meaning of No With No After The MeToo Campaign Reaches India

10, Oct 2018 By Guest Patrakar
#MeToo, a movement against sexual harassment and assault has now reached India and even the most ‘sanskari’ lot is getting exposed. In all the cases one thing is clear that a majority of men don’t understand the meaning of consent or the meaning of a “No”. Seeing which, Oxford has updated the meaning of no and going forward, the word would mean a no.

“The existing meaning of No has been completely destroyed by most of the men and they believe that it means yes, hence we have decided to update its meaning with a No and it no longer means yes” said one of the jury members who agreed to update the meaning of No.
The news is likely to impact woke Indians, as they have forgotten the meaning of No lately. Sources say that NCERT would add a chapter “No means No” to 9thstandard biology book so as to make students understand the idea of consent at the early age.
