Less Wonderful, but more important Wednesday Utterances

Maybe the most important, especially for girls and women:

   The 2 most powerful words in the English language:

“I Refuse”


We are taught to avoid strangers, which is important. Vigilance is important, but we have been taught to trust those in authority and to trust those who are close to our families, which may not be the best for our health. Girls, especially, are often penalized for saying No, or for refusing what can turn out to be Grooming on the part of family or friends of family/babysitters/authority figures, and pressured to keep the secrets of those known the the victim. I believe that the “I Refuse” principle taught by Gandhi could help prevent some of these sexual abuse cases, if children are taught to respect their own judgement and to refuse to remain silent when touched.

  1. Using covid measures as a double excuse, have them stay 6 feet away from anyone.
    Using covid measures as a double excuse, back off from any touching.
    Stay out of the laps of everyone. Some of these don’t fit too well in cases of possible incest

  2. 3 ways to keep kids safe: 1) Teach them to speak authentically about their experience 2) Don’t get upset when their experiences are inconvenient or uncomfortable 3) just policies that make sure everyone has enough of what they need.
