after a recent serious incident in my social circle I’ve gotten more proactive abt calling out minor consent issues b4 they escalate. I’ve noticed treating it like something rly obvious is quite effective - ppl take “u broke a social code” much better than “ur a predator”. but the more out-there the touch is, the easier that is. eg I recently had cause to go “you know it’s rude to lick people without asking, right?” which worked cos most ppl, y'know, don’t randomly lick ppl. still working onthis

Have you found that this works better than saying “I don’t like being licked?”
