Touch, Yes or No?
A while back I was talking to a friend of mine. Now just so you know I am a touchy feely kind of woman. There is nothing in the world I love more than physical contact with another human being.
So as a matter of course I put my hand on her arm as we were chatting. Suddenly she started going on about her personal bubble and how she didn’t like it when people touched her. This was just a personal brush with this tendency these days toward what I like to call the personal bubble epidemic.
Is it Natural?
Touch is one of the ways we humans communicate with one another. I’m not just talking romantically. Shaking hands or laying your hand on a persons arm during an important conversation can help you get a sense of their true intention.
Contact makes a connection stronger but the fear of contact does just the opposite. It weakens our ability to let each other in.
If a man touches another man he is gay and if he touches a woman he is a pervert
But here’s the thing we fail to take into account. Men were built to be driven sexually.
And we women dress and preen and make every effort to look sexually appealing. and then when we get the attention we are looking for we feel like we’ve been assaulted. Touch is what we all want on some level from the day we are born to the day we die and yet we are so god damned afraid of it that if some one does try to touch us we call the cops.
TV Tells the Story
What kind of idiots are we to welcome violence into our home while rejecting human contact with our friends and family. And So what if Jack so and so down the street cat calls me when I walk to the store. At my age I’d be damn lucky if somebody would.
People let’s start enjoying the fact that we are human beings and stop being such fucking idiots.
See ya next time on The Magic Owl.
