“If what Aziz Ansari did was assault, then every woman I know has been assaulted.”
Now we’re getting it.
The #MeToo movement inspired an incredible amount of women to come forward with their stories of rape, assault, and harassment. Some of these attacks women spoke about were vicious and intentionally cruel. Others shared how men in positions of power took advantage of them. And others were a little fuzzy. They sounded a little too familiar to so many women and men, poking holes in what so many people believe to be consent.
Aziz Ansari is a perfect example.
