I am routinely touched when a man needs me out of his way–sometimes with an “Excuse me,” other times without. When I was twelve, I was sexually harassed and touched inappropriately by a male classmate. He often snuck up behind me. Being moved out of the way by a man twice my size, especially if I have not seen his face, makes me afraid. I see this done to women on a semi-regular basis. Never have I seen it done to a man.
