I have a good friend in Canada who is seemingly my younger twin. She’s also got 5 kids and loves to write…although, Nuala Reilly is published and I’m still aspiring to be. We both blog and we are both passionate about fighting back against this “rape culture” for the betterment of our daughters and sons.
I’ve written about this seemingly overlooked issue in the past that contributes to many boys learning that “she says NO but she really means YES.” (In attempting to call up that old post in order to link it here, Google sent me to the post that followed that one and not the post itself. Bing didn’t find it at all. Apparently, even search engines don’t give a shit about our women having the right to tell men not to touch us.)
At any rate, I would like to direct your attention to Nuala’s latest post about the same issue. Men (and boys) need to learn that regardless of how attractive they may find a woman, it is not their right to touch her. The end. Hands off.
