Hahahaaa. I LOVE this story, and my 19 year old daughter does, too. One of my last real "discussions" in the classroom involved a statement I made about having to "get out the sewing machine last night"..... A student (several) thought I was just being stupid (Science-fictiony) w/them... Had NEVER seen or heard of a sewing machine..... and we're in GEORGIA.....
It starts out funny but then, when you really start thinking about it, it's terrifying. Seriously. I'm out there in the dating world. All my first dates happen in VERY public places and I take pepper spray with me, fucking pepper spray, why is that necessary? Oh right because I don't dare trust that the man I'm going out with has been taught that sexual assault is wrong.
