As more and more women seem to muster the courage to share their stories of being the targets of unwanted, uninvited and deeply distressing sexually motivated behavior, I can’t help but wonder what ever happened to the good old-fashioned sharp slap to the face.

I get that many of these women were faced with significant barriers owing to differences in rank or status, and I regret that they genuinely feared no one would believe them if they spoke up, but any man who behaves that way toward any female truly deserves a good, sharp slap across the face at the very least!

You can just call it “locker room antics.” #nexttimeslapthejerk!
