I don’t let anyone touch, hug, kiss, hold, pick up or tickle my children if my child indicates they don’t want them to. They don’t even need to say “no”; we have more of a “Yes means yes” policy.
I’m so emotionally exhausted victim blaming, slut shaming and the relentlessness of rape culture. They’re constant, and everywhere. It’s perpetuated by men and women, mothers and father, even police.
