If you turn on your TV these days you probably see men that are being called out for assaulting women.
There are probably some of you reading these words who know firsthand what it feels like to be assaulted. And so this probably feels long overdue.
Well, for you and all the women like you, it is long overdue.
How many times have we found ourselves in situations where things kind of got out of control?
And we were so ashamed we kept it to ourselves.
How many times have we been told that boys will be boys?
And so we let sleeping dogs lie.
How many of us felt like we’d done something wrong? That maybe we’d led them on?
So we got what was coming to us, right?
How many times have we asked ourselves if maybe we deserved it?
Or told ourselves…
“It’s just something boys do.”
More and more women are stepping out of the shadows and saying “me too” and “no more.”
As women, when we say no, we mean no. It is not okay to touch us without our permission.
I have added a video from a post I wrote about a year ago. I think it is quite apropos in these times we now find ourselves living in.
