Petition to Kamala Harris
This dance is sexual assault in disguise. Please pass laws that protect human rights!
Twerking / Grinding the unfortunate popular so called "dance" of today has made it's way through all of our social media, clubs, bars, pop culture and to our young kids. It's a sad thing when a dance like this is glorified in our society. Most people find this dance fun and enjoy but there some who are repulsed by it and want nothing to do with it. It's vulgar, it makes the most beautiful girl lose class and self respect in the eyes of others. Self respect is all we have. Respect is everything. Respect is gold. Well it has become so common in our culture that even someone like myself - modestly covered up wearing sweat pants and a polka dot shirt trying not to attract any attention to myself as I visit a local karaoke bar and remained sober as the designated driver. Who would have thought I would be in line excited to put my name in for karaoke when out of nowhere someone came behind me and cornered me to where I couldn't escape as he grinded on me and told me that that was a huge cell phone in his pocket. I couldn't get away from him. He was an employee at this bar, He cornered me and for the first time I felt like a rabbit in shock helpless and like a child as this man overpowered me and left me no escape as he disrespected me with this accepted "dance". Later that night happened again with an older random stranger a regular at the bar. He was grinding on women in a circle and they were drunk going for it and even twerking getting into but that's not me as I noticed he was coming near me as I had stood by my friend I looked for an escape so I went to the bar thinking he won't bother me I'm sitting here and all those women that love that attention and enjoy that type of degenerate dance he could do his thing and they would do it back.. Whatever I thought but no he came at me staring at me and spend 2 minutes trapping me in my seat as I faced forward at the bar in my seat with no one to stop him and no where to run as he continued to do this socially acceptable dance. I didn't want it. I had ran away from the scene to the bar, I had not been one of the girls dancing!! My wishes weren't respected. I was violated do you think I want that type of treatment as a woman. I don't care that people may laugh at my change.org not everyone wants to be sexually assaulted by this so called dance. It's not fun it's not something I admire. It's what it is socialized normalised sexual assault and its conditioned society to think they can come up to anyone and do this! I know I'm not alone and there's others possibly that felt disrespected and feel the way I do. It's sexual assault! It doesn't matter to me if you differ in opinion it's sexual assault and we need legal action to protect all humans from the unwanted sexual assault under the disguise of dance. I will no longer tolerate it in any shape or form. No one has the right to corner you or put themselves on you and tell you things. Women today you have a choice and a voice. We don't need to brush this off anymore this is sexual assault if you do not participate in this dance and it's done against your will. We don't have to tolerate it. I'm fighting to bring awareness of human rights to our own bodies. No one has the right to come against anyone male or female especially as a person minding their own business in line. It's not a joke it needs to stop. Society needs to see it for what it is and be held accountable for it. Not everyone wants to be violated by this "dance" we need to bring laws to protect human rights. It's the culture that made it mean nothing when it is something no matter how innocent it was to you it may not be to another person. That's what people need to realize you are not entitled to do this to anyone just because our degenerate culture normalized it. I will not stand for this in any shape or form or with any depth whether claimed innocent or out of the name of fun. My body not yours! Thank you!
