Guys Just Wanna (Have) Cum: Exsqueeze Me?” (Acrylic + Glow-in-the-Dark Accents on Canvas, 16x20).
Another example of “boys will be boys” right? When I initially shared this message via IG story, I received some responses saying his message didn’t merit my “public shaming”, because, obviously, he was just being funny and trying to get my attention. And for a moment, I considered that maybe I was being too harsh, too judgmental, after all, he did ASK me if I would let a guy squeeze one out on me, so, that’s kinda like consent, right? But the more I thought about it, and the more I processed how his question, and proceeding messages, made me feel (uncomfortable, disturbed, grossed out, angry), I knew I wasn’t over-reacting. In fact, perhaps I wasn’t incredulous enough. And that is my point. Women are conditioned to take a joke, laugh it off, or simply just ignore anything or anyone that makes us uneasy. And while that may mitigate the immediate anxiety of the situation, what about the bigger picture? What about the comments, joke and insults that turn into hostile, aggressive and violent actions? What about those who cannot defend themselves? What about the next generation of young men who grow up believing it is acceptable to treat women with such disregard and contempt?
