This was spot on. I feel like we're still living in a time in which people think of sexual assault as some stranger cornering you in an ally, when really it can be (and typically is) someone close to you like a significant other or romantic interest. I've literally had an ex--without even a word-- just come up to me and start trying to undress me. Nothing about my stance remotely suggested I wanted that; it took three time me telling him to stop for him to understand that's not what I was trying to do at the moment.

I could go down a whole rabbit hole about sexual exploits being needlessly tied to masculinity, but I love how you put it and his quote about entertaining the big question of how men ultimately view women. People need to understand that sex is an act done WITH someone, not TO someone.

Thanks for sharing!
