This “boys will be boys” excuse that is now all over the media is insulting to me. You can take your boys will be boys, Mr. Kavanaugh and Mr. Trump. I don’t know about you. But I myself can unequivocally state that I have never:

  • Assaulted a girl, whether in high school or later in life verbally or physically
  • Pinned down a girl on a bed intending a sexual encounter
  • Turned up the music in the room to mask out screams
  • Put my hand over her mouth to keep her from screaming

In my opinion, whether the person that does this is a 14 or 17-year-old boy, or a 60-year-old man, this person is committing attempted rape.

Boys who hold down girls so they can obtain sexual gratification are called rapists, and rape is a crime.

The boys may forget about the instance, but the girl won’t, for the rest of her life.

I am the father of a daughter. If a boy, or a man, had raped my daughter, and I had found out about it, I would have spent the rest of my life hunting down the rapist.

So don’t give me this boys will be boys or locker room talk bullshit. We’re not buying it, and no man or woman with self-respect should vote for any politician who thinks this kind of behavior is ok and normal, and should be acceptable.
