For people saying that the video going around with a guy pinching women on the arse isn’t abuse or harassment, can I just tell you something? When I was 20, I would walk to and from work five days a week. And every so often, this guy on a bike (which may sound funny but it really isn’t to me) would ride past me, and smack me on the arse, or grab my breasts. It still haunts me. It may not sound like much to you, but I sometimes have anxiety attacks just from being alone on the street and having an older man walk/ride past me.
Yes, the girls only got one pinch on their butt, but that doesn’t make it okay. It doesn’t compare to rape, but can you imagine if he did that to someone who had been sexually abused? Do you realise that it could trigger something, and leave them feeling paranoid and anxious for a long time? If someone unknown did that to me, I’m fairly certain that once they were gone, I would just start crying.
Let me reiterate that for you, just because he ‘only’ pinched women’s butts, does not make it in any way, okay.
