It depends how you respond too. Is the person exploiting you in a threatening way? I once was spanked at work by female coworker. I imagine some peolpe in my position would have filed a sexual harassment claim??? Either way, I was young and the feminist movement wasn't even on my radar. I. Was. Unafraid. Of. This. Lady. She was no threat to me. In fact, it kind of made me feel good because maybe it made her feel good? Anyway, nothing heppened. Same thing happened at another job, but it was more of a friendly pat. Sometimes I wonder if some people take these things toooooooooo seriously. Like they're willing to DESTROY that other person merely because they maybe went too far being friednly or dumb? So it's ok to almost destroy a person's career for making a goof? Understandably, REAL sexual assault is a big deal. Sexual predators are a real thing and pursue prey--sometimes underage--over decades of time. And nobody should be too casual about touching others. It's a private space you shouldn't cross carelessly. Still, we're not robots. Is that what we're trying to be? I can already see how this is going to cause some people to be too private and essentially it probably erodes relationshpis and marriages. Because if people are living in fear or inexperience, they might not participate anymore. Why take risks when you can put up walls and live more safely? Forget it. Retreat! It's a battle not worth fighting. Government will have to scramble to keep reproductive rates and society togehter before they crumble. I want to add I've NEVER touched anybody else that way. Wouldn't dream of doing that. I'm probably going to be single for the rest of my life. I just htink we shouldn't overdo the rules. Go after the people who deserve it. But we're sexual social beings. Life is already stacked against us. Do we really want to make it even harder? Umm, some people are barely hanging on. There're so many threats in hte world right now. In terms of change, not just disaster, I'm not sure any peoples in Earth's history ever confronted more. Yes there're some big events in history to compete with modern times. Like hte eruption over 70,000 years ago. Or firemaking a million years ago. The ice age. But we're approaching a time period when we will be able to change our genetics directly, being able to do in a short time what otherwise required millions of years. With the right sequence of events, we could devastate all life on Earth and wipe out most of hte mammals. Millons upon millions of years of evolutionary progress would be lost. Even without that kill switch, 30% or more of species could be lost in the next 50 to 100 years just to our presence alone. Are we prepared for all this? Whne have we ever been? It's always been a struggle. Everytime we're thrown down we get back up. But how long will that last?
