I feel conflicted by your assertions…
Jennifer Ross

Hi Jennifer, thank you for this. You may be right — I’m primarily going on the percentage of my female friends that shared their stories on Facebook (and through personal interaction), and that was almost 100%.

And then, looking at how men responded, and many took the approach of, “Well, his penis wasn’t inside you, so it doesn’t count”…

That hurt. And I’m a guy. I can only imagine how a response like that feels to those abused.

So, perhaps 100% of men aren’t guilty of sexual abuse, harassment, pressure, etc. But I’d be curious — if we took every action of invasion, discomfort, fear, etc., and looked at that as abuse… how high would the percentage be?

My guess is, pretty damn high.

Like what you read? Give Danny Brown a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
