I need feminism because my friends thought it was ok for a man to pinch my bum at the pool because he was “good-looking”. I need feminism because they tried to persuade me not to call him out to avoid causing a scene.
I need feminism because when we were freshmen in high school, my friend was sexually assaulted AT SCHOOL by a boy who had a history of sexual assault. She tried to pull away as he proceeded to grab at her and kiss her. When people found out about this, upperclassmen accused her of making up the incident and yelled at her in the cafeteria while administration did nothing about it. His girlfriend and all of her friends comforted him as he cried and played the victim.
