What’s more, they are simply so f**king delicate — pardon me. I consider them enthusiastic hemophiliacs, and whatever is left of us must be so watchful around them.”
Weiss concurred, telling the HBO have numerous in her age “believe that approaching somebody for a drink constitutes lewd behavior.”
“Indeed, if that is lewd behavior,” she kept, “doing this [touching somebody’s shoulder] is rape and a spontaneous kiss is assault, at that point we’ve lost. It’s finished.”
For the approaching Valentine’s Day, the Times essayist facetiously recommended individuals “get a consent slip, not a valentine.”
“Who recognizes what to write in the card,” Maher answered.
