    It's actually, like, super unnecessary. We do not like it.

    YOU DON’T NEED TO TOUCH MY WAIST TO GET THROUGH. YOU DON’T NEED TO TOUCH MY WAIST TO GET THROUGH. YOU DON’T NEED TO TOUCH MY WAIST TO GET THROUGH. YOU DON’T NEED TO TOUCH MY WAIST TO GET THROUGH.

    Me when men walk past me and touch my waist

    for the LAST time: BOYS, YOU DO NOT NEED TO TOUCH MY WAIST WHEN YOU WALK PAST ME! I WILL GLADLY MOVE OUT OF YOUR UGLY ASS WAY

    me and my girlfriends in the bar bathroom after every man we tried to pass touched the small of our backs

    the amount of men at the club last night that felt like they had to grab our waists to get past us .. don’t touch the women

    Hi men 👋🏾 a reminder that being in a club setting isn’t an excuse to touch women... don’t touch our waists to get past either. We find it gross. #ClubCultureConsent https://t.co/BIl9084HgQ

    I DONT GIVE A SHIT IF YOURE “just trying to get by” DONT FUCKING TOUCH MY WAIST

    i still don't understand why guys touch my waist to move past me please don't touch me ever

    It’s so you can’t needlessly touch the smalls of our backs when you move around us. https://t.co/m5zZZY10Ry

    PSA: Do not touch my waist. Even if I'm in your way. Just tell me to move. You do not move a person by grasping one of their body parts.

    Dear men at concerts: You don’t have to touch my waist to let me know you’re passing behind me — you can just...pass

    THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO GET MY ATTENTION THAN TO GRAB MY ARM OR TOUCH MY WAIST! DONT FUCKIN TOUCH ME BRO

    So hey, boys, let's try and take it back to preschool and relearn how to keep these...
