Thank goodness for this woman.
I expect my comment is going to get deleted but for the few mins/hour it will get, I’m saying it. It really saddens me that my daughter is growing up in a world where one day a stranger (male OR female) could touch her without her consent, on a part of her body that is private (in my opinion) in the name of ‘comedy’ and then have thousands of other strangers comment on it saying it’s fine and she should be ok with it. Maybe she would find it funny, maybe she would be deeply humiliated. Point is, she’d have no choice. I want my daughter to have freedom and choices and feel that her body is respected.

If you are a man who thinks it’s funny to make misogynist jokes purely to make your female friends uncomfortable/angry, then you are a misogynist. It is not “just a joke.” You literally are finding humor in the discomfort and dehumanization of women. You are not helping, you are not making satire. You are just being misogynist.
Yes, this includes you gay men.
