Ferrer (Insurgent Prieta) on Consent and Kinship

“I compare this sort of oppression and its affect on women like myself, to colonial conditioning.

Escalate these occurences to situations where older men whom they are taught to respect are being extremely inappropriate and sexually abusive and you have a recipe for a traumatic disaster. Trust me, I know.”
