To the intoxicated girl who felt obliged to violate my personal space and attempted to steal my hat in a dramatic and drawn-out public fashion. I have some unapologetic and heartfelt words of wisdom for you. The way you conducted yourself as an "adult" in a public space was embarrassing and rude in a truly cringe-worthy manner. Your adolescent display of emotional immaturity and lack of respect to my personal boundaries was shameful.

As a man who respects the right of women to feel safe in the downtown social scene and makes a concerted effort to contribute to a good-vibes culture of safety, it was very awkward navigating the aggressiveness of your actions. Next time you decide to get white-girl wasted and make a fool of yourself in public, I hope your friends will be more proactive in trying to safeguard your dignity, and call you on your bullshit. I have compassion for your ignorance, I truly do. I believe at your core you are a good person, but seriously grow the fuck up and treat people with respect. Building a grass-roots culture of consent is a community effort, play your part or stay home.
