Don’t touch me.

Can we not simply establish the norm of not putting our hands on other people’s bodies without their consent?

Somebody physically pushed me back as I tried to step past another, seated person (not them) exiting a plane, because I “should have waited”. I was not blocking that person. They were collecting their bags.

And of course, it was a man. As if I even had to tell you that.

For personal reasons I’d rather not air publicly, this was an enormously upsetting experience.

If you don’t know me, and I’m not in danger, don’t fucking touch me.
