"As a young girl, I was sexually precocious with poor boundaries. I hung around with strange older men because I wanted their attention, and thusly, their love. As a young adult, I drank and used drugs to the point of blackout, went strange places with strange people, walked alone late at night without my wits about me. Still, the only times I was raped were when the man I was with was a rapist." ---Emily of XO Jane, on her Project Unbreakable submission

Pinner writes: "From the conversations I’ve had with my heterosexual peers, it seems that they’re afraid of being hit on and gawked at by another man. They’re scared of feeling uncomfortable in a situation that they do not condone or agree with. They’re afraid of the awkward conversation they would have to initiate in order to express their sexual opinion. All of these situations are close to the exact same thing a woman has to go through on a daily basis. More men should recognize this."
