Tomas Elias Gonzalez Myrtle Beach Herald // Saying ?me too? isn't enough. Women have to stop excusing men - EntornoInteligente

Entornointeligente.com / I was celebrating my 50th birthday with childhood friends at a long table in a Colorado restaurant when I heard her say it: ?Did you see the shorts? Half her ass was hanging out. If a girl doesn?t want a man to attack her, she shouldn?t dress like that, that?s all I?m saying.? Such was the conversation happening at the other end of the table, led by a woman I?ve known since we were seventh-graders in a small-town Missouri Catholic school. It was August 2015.

?Did you just say how a girl dresses is license for a grown man to physically attack and rape her?? I said.

?You have a 19-year-old daughter.?

I spat this out like the accusation it was, but I got no reply.

Her end of the table had been discussing a news report out of Florida where, following the brutal rape of a teenager, store video had captured her reaching for a higher shelf, her shorts rising in kind.

Our celebratory table went quiet. We had not seen each other in such a long time. Was I about to ruin a nice dinner over this?

My friend shrugged. ?What can you do?? she said. ?Men have needs.?
