The Official Party (Pt.2)

Sometimes, there really is a downside to everything. At the party, there was this boy who used to be my friend. However, I stopped speaking to him after he told me, and I quote, "you can't get guys cuz you're a bitch lol", after i refused to set him up with one of my friends. To my dismay he was invited, (he doesn't attend my school) and throughout the night he approached me - touching me in intimate areas every time. The first time, I let it slide because I figuired it's a pool party and he just brushed against while he was swimming. When it happened again, though, I became suspicious. When I told my friend about it, she said she was having the same problem. Before I was able to confront him about it , however, it was time to get the cake. (And gosh was that cake great.) After I talked to more my friends, danced, and ate cake, I returned to the peaceful and bubbly state I was in when I first arrived. Sadly, this state of mind did not remain. While I was talking to a friend, I saw him moving toward me out the corner of my eye. I consciously began to move in the other direction, trying to avoid him. But he was a persistent one, and came closer despite my efforts - this time grabbing my butt. That was the last straw. Inside, I could feel my blood boiling; every nerve breaking. I swiftly turned around and confronted him, inquiring why he felt like he was obliged to have access to my body. The response was apalling.

 

"I didn't touch you! Can't a guy swim? It's a pool, people brush into each other all the time," he shot back.

Internally shocked, I held my ground.

"Well you've been "brushing into me" all night, so put that on pause and leave me alone," I ordered as I left his presence and sought comfort in my friends.

 

The night continued on, and it was a great event. However, I was just so taken back at how it's 2014 and occurances like this are still frequent.  As a firm believer in feminism, this bothered me deeply. My body is MY body, and no one should feel as if they have a "right" to it unless:

a) I allow it.

b) I allow it.

c) I allow it.

 

To that guy (and you know who you are), kindly kiss my butt.

You know, the one you felt the need to touch so badly.

    So true, you would think guys now better and would respect females bodies but then again, if they are teenage boys, they are thinking with their head and its not with the head on their neck either.
