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.
Edit: the Roving Typist (the young man in this photo) has written about this photo. Although I still love the photo because I've done this myself (:-)), I feel I need to share his story as well. Thus I changed the source to reveal the story behind it.
