What are good intentions worth? The Anna Stubblefield case

Que valent les bonnes intentions ? L’affaire Anna Stubblefield

Abstract

The Anna Stubblefied case, in which a university professor had sexual intercourse with a young black disabled man, raises the issue of consent for people unable to speak, of the conflict between care and capacities and of the link between intentions and mechanisms of domination. Unlike the legal approach, suspending judgment makes us aware of what remains hidden by consent.
L’affaire Anna Stubblefield, qui a eu des relations sexuelles avec un jeune noir handicapé, interroge le consentement des personnes incapables de s’exprimer, le conflit entre la logique du care et celle des capacités, et le rapport entre les intentions et les mécanismes de domination. Contrairement à l’approche juridique, une approche qui suspend le jugement se rend attentive à ce que le consentement masque.
