Please just stop

fullsizeoutput_16cfI received an unwanted sexual advance in a public space while riding my bike this past week. The details don’t matter. What matters to me is that every time this happens (which, for me, is really not that often), it rips off the scab and undoes years of personal work to heal past traumas. I beg of you if you are one of the people who is doing this to women (and men), please just stop. If you think your actions are innocent or your intentions are good, please do the necessary background work to understand this movement more and the unintended consequences of your words and actions.

If you are interested in more about #MeToo, see my book, Traveling at the Speed of Bike. There’s a little section about it.
