Simple definition

I have a very simple definition, for everyone questioning the definition of “sexual assault”. If it makes you feel a certain type of way while you are doing it, it would be sexual assault. It doesn’t matter if it is comments, or if you are “groping her”, if it makes you feel that way, or even ask that question, it’s a good view that it shouldn’t happen.

Sexual assault isn’t strictly touching, penetrating or flirting. There is physical and verbal, the lines between types are grey on a good day. Best advice, if it make you feel uncomfortable, don’t do or say it.

It’s not rocket science, it’s called common decency. Every human deserves to be respected and if I constantly ask uncomfortable questions, I am the one who needs to shape up.

Regards,

A Survivor of Sexual Assault
