Semi-vague in terms of consent

The policy is semi-vague in terms of consent and things like that. Not explicitly, but enough that I feel like there are certain older members of our community that might read that and say “oh, yeah, I'm fine," “yeah, like I perfectly understand this”. Like, “I always you know, ask for consent”. But again, without further defining what that really means- the different emotions that go around those situations and adding more detail, I think it's easy for people to assume they are following the policy when in reality, there are some things that they can work on.
