20. Even as a young teenager, my daughter would not ride the school bus because the boys kept touching

her butt. Pretty sad. This was during the 80's. The bus driver didn't stop the bus until they quit doing it and it would've been useless telling the principal of the school at that time. This was in Boca Raton, FL. And in my experience, in all years preceding and following, this kind of stuff was common place. If you said anything, you'd be laughed at or ridiculed. You couldn't go to a "straight" night club to just dance, because you were expected to be "looking for it". If you turned it down, you'd be called names in some cases. Date rape was not uncommon. I want to say, not all men are rude. There are many admirable men, but the ignorant, rude ones give the others a bad rap, too. You weren't even safe in the work place. Everyone knows this stuff. It's not new. Why are we acting shocked? We should be shocked at the little that's been done to keep women from being harrassed, embarrassed and/or traumatized for so many years.
