Ugh, ugh, ugh. Some aspects of female socialization should be the norm for all people of both sexes. Empathy? Good! Cooperation? Also good! But other aspects of female socialization need to be flat-out eradicated, and the inability to say no and the belief that one's own body is a public resource are at the top of the must-go list.

This is so true! People teach little girls to always be kind and put others first. Kindness is good but equally girls need to be taught that they are not just support humans.

We need to tell them: Boundaries are good! No-one gets to touch you if you don't want! Your thoughts and feelings matter!
