          Personal accounts of sexual assault range far and wide. The majority of women have experience unwanted sexual advances at least once if not multiple times in their life. Sometimes these women feel that standing up for themselves will only lead to things getting worse. 

          In sex ed you learn that no means no, and they give you the birds and the bees talk. They don't talk about accounts of unwanted sexual advances. They explain that girls may change their mind mid action, (any sexual act) but they don't tell you that she may just stop stop responding. She may be too afraid to say that she has changed her mind. She might not know how to hold her own if things go sideways, so she says nothing.

          It is important that we teach people that politeness is not consent and consent is not open ended it is perpetual. We need to teach young men this, and we need to teach young women how to protect themselves from men who choose to ignore this. Women should be allowed to carry a taser or mace on college campuses and in high school. Abuse of protection items should be handled on a incidental basis and not through widespread bans on carrying these items.
