I know this is the season of giving and happiness and time spent with family and all that jazz but in my opinion there is no better time to have this conversation. Like the girl in this spot I was raised to be strong and independent. I was told that no boy, teen or man should ever be allowed to call me names, touch me in a way I didn’t like and above all else no man should ever hit me.
I am lucky, I have never been raped, assaulted or hot by any man. However, I, like the girl in the spot, been called a slut, bitch, c**t, whore and many other awful names by teen boys who think they are funny. It is not funny. It never will be funny and well no one should be allowed to say those things.
So please watch this spot below and don’t allow the violence to start. Not just for girls either. We live in an amazing country that does amazing things and we all have the right to enjoy a peaceful and safe place to call home.
This holiday season, let’s practice peace.
