Day #10 : #MeToo
I live in France and here we use the hashtag #balancetonporc a lot. It’s quite the same as #MeToo. So I have been thinking a lot this last few days. I have never been abused nor raped and I feel incredibly lucky about that. BUT. But I thought about that time when I was 11 and I got stuck in an elevator with a flasher (not something I wanted to see). About that time I was 14 and attending a techno music festival and some guys grabbed my boobs / butt at every possible occasion. About the time I was 17 and my surgeon waited for the only meeting with me that my mom couldn’t attend to touch my boobs under my sweater (and no, the operation I had had was not even close nor related to this area). About the time I was 20 and fell asleep with some guy who waited for that exact moment to try getting to my pants (he failed). About the COUNTLESS times I was told I had a juicy ass (or no ass at all, depending on the guy), pretty boobs, and so on, by random guys on the street. My male friends NEVER had to go through ONE of those things.
It is time we make a change.
