1. Groping is Never Okay
This next story comes from a user called Deijavu. “Two summers ago, I was traveling through California and stopped in Huntington Beach for drinks with friends. We walked into this bar, and were moving towards the back tables, when I nearly ran head-on into this older lady, 50+, who gave me the I’m checking you out right now and I want you to know it look up and down my body… And then grabbed my biceps, squeezed a couple of times and walked away before I could even respond or react.
“A couple hours later, my friends and I were leaving our table to go outside and catch a cab, when I ran into this lady again. She’d clearly been drinking and decided to go for the gusto, this time with a full on crotch-grab while she whispered ‘I’ve always liked chocolate’ (I’m black) into my ear. I just stood there like a deer in headlights. I’d never encountered anything like that before and didn’t have any programming to process it so I defaulted to stunned silence.”
