keep your hands to yourself. | a very angry, fed up poem

To preface, I’d like to state that only some of these are my personal experiences, and that inspiration was drawn from not just my life, but the lives of women around me that I love and admire. Also, I acknowledge that many are my own opinion, and not everyone will agree. That’s fine (but keep your hands to yourself).

If your woman is sick, and not able to pleasure you,

Keep your hands to yourself.

If she’s just your security blanket, and you don’t actually give a shit about her or her feelings,

Keep your hands to yourself.

You might be angry, or lonely, or horny, but

Keep your hands to yourself.

When your fiancé tries to stop you from taking a sexual experience too far, back off and

Keep your hands to yourself.

If she’s unconscious, or you don’t know her name,

Keep your hands to yourself.

If you have a wife, and the woman in front of you isn’t your wife,

Keep your hands to yourself.

If you’re away from home for whatever reason, and a woman who is not your wife tries to hand you her phone number,

Keep your hands to yourself.

If you’ve recently been an asshole and you haven’t yet sucked up your pride and apologized,

Keep your hands to yourself.

If she’s in pain from a chronic illness, and not in the mood,

Keep your hands to yourself.

If she’s wearing something scandalous or if she’s wearing a parka or if she’s wearing nothing at all, unless she says otherwise,

Keep you hands to yourself.

If your pregnant wife is uncomfortable and exhausted from housing a growing human,

Keep your hands to yourself.

If you’re the one who packed up and left your home, and said you can’t ever be with your wife again,

Keep your hands to yourself.

If for some reason, she doesn’t want to or can’t have sex for some time, instead of telling her it will be her fault you give into the temptation of pornography or worse,

Keep your damn. hands. to. your. self.

For any reason, unless it’s welcomed, if she says no or says nothing at all,

If she doesn’t say she wants you to,

Keep. Your. Hands. To. Yourself.

And finally,

If you mentor a woman who comes to you and admits her sexual experience was not completely consensual, but you believe it’s more spiritually important for her to accept responsibility for her sinful submission to the person who ignored her protests,

Keep you victim-blaming opinions to yourself. 👏🏻
