People bring their own experiences to their perceptions. I think that so many women have been abused or touched against their will that it’s difficult for them to see beyond that. And some people don’t care to be touched much for other reasons — men as well. I’m a really touchy hugging kind of person but I don’t make the assumption that everyone is and I try to take that into account when interacting with other people.
