I was confused about the allegations that Trump of kissed women without permission.
I thought that’s pretty much how kissing worked.
You think you’re having a moment. You go in for the kiss. The other party either reciprocates or doesn’t. If not, you stop.
If someone asks permission, the other says that ruins the moment. We’ve all been told that.
Because of that norm, nearly everyone can be accused of kissing someone without permission and has been kissed plenty without giving explicit permission.
But, “kissing without permission” sounds like a damning headline to folks that don’t stop and think how many of their former dates could accuse them of the same thing.
