When I was 14, (I’m almost 17 now), I was in this musical called Guys and Dolls. A couple of girls each around my age and I were the dancers for the show. At one of the dress rehearsals I was walking up the stairs to the stage, when the lead male in the show (he was around 30), said “oh no I’m falling.” He grabbed my waist, hips, and butt to prevent himself from “falling” off the stairs. Then he obnoxiously said “oh no I’m so sorry I didn’t do that on purpose or anything, then he proceeded to laugh about it. I remember feeling so embarrassed, especially because other adults had seen and didn’t do anything about it! I’m totally fine, this doesn’t effect me today, just makes me angry. Ever since the incident, I am determined to stand up for the equal treatment of girls and women everywhere.
