Your story is one all women will feel in their lifetime. The never knowing who or what is watching and that’s not even taking into account all the family members of family friends. Who are waiting to attack.My own father (sperm donor) used to try and grab or hold a hug to long and this is the person who left when I was 11 and I never brought anyone around including myself.The rape culture is ingrained that women serve the man but seeing my donor hit my mom and then abuse the girls I new it discussed me thank goodness. We now have 2 daughters and we worry everyday about our girls but hope we have taught thru talking and example what is acceptable behavior and what’s not. The culture has to be broken by the men of our society that it’s not ok to abuse women.
