Twin Cities Pioneer Press: MN lawmakers want to make butt-grabbing illegal. (Currently, there’s a clothed-buttocks exception.)
The press, in a split-decision so far, is treating this as if it’s something BAD. To make it illegal to grope someone’s ass. That’s BAD. No. It is not.
This is small potatoes and should be on the law books in every municipality.
We in the United States of America currently *condone* sexual assault and *condemn* being sexually active and experienced. We *condone* slut-shaming. We *condone* victim-blaming. We *condone* making women afraid via catcalling and unwanted advances.
We *condone* Coercive Control.
We *condone* Stalking.
We *condone* rape. We accommodate *rapists*. Rapists and Serial rapists currently serve 2-5 years after only getting 8 year sentences, on average. It is an outlier if a rapist gets 10 years. It’s virtually impossible to get life in prison. These people are a danger to society, but they’re repeatedly let out of prison or given probation or let off completely because the victims are shamed and revictimized.
We *condone* child abuse. (corporal punishment)
We *condone* parent-authorized child rape. (child marriage) **There is currently NO age limit in the U.S. for child marriage.** This includes so-called Liberal states. If a parent/s wants to marry their daughter off to some pervert, they can. Even if that daughter is five years old. They disguise it as religious freedom, but it’s nothing more than child slavery and child sex trafficking.
And some people are having a fucking cow about not being able to grab ass.
What the fucking goddamn hell is wrong with this picture.
Greatest Country in the world? It never existed and it sure as fuck doesn’t exist now.
I advise everyone who gets their ass grabbed by some dumbfuck who thinks they have the right to break their goddamn fingers, their wrist, and their confidence. That goes for sexual assault, threats, stalking, and every MFer who thinks they have to right to make people afraid. It’s long past time to put a stop to it.
Now, all that said, nothing will get done to protect women, children, and those who can’t defend themselves until we stop living in a Patriarchal society that celebrates misogyny and assault. It’ll never stop until our society turns egalitarian. Frankly, that’s likely going to take another 1,000 years if we haven’t killed off our entire species by then after Mother Nature’s done with us.
