Few things in life are black & white
But a very public sexual assault should not be celebrated, reproduced, or reenacted
It wasn’t my choice to be kissed. The guy just came over and grabbed.
I did not see him approaching...and all of a sudden I was in this vise grip.
I hope I can breathe. I did not see him approach. He just grabbed.
His grip was very strong. He had very big hands.
Someone much bigger than you, and much stronger, where you've lost control of yourself, I'm not sure that makes you happy.
I felt he was very strong, he was holding me tight...it wasn't really a romantic event.
A kiss based on one person’s joy and another person’s non-consenting shock isn’t really a perfect kiss. And actually, it never was.

On February 19, 2019, two days after the death of “the kissing sailor” an unknown activist properly added a blood-red #MeToo hashtag, similar in color to the famed LIFE magazine logo, to Sarasota, Florida’s 25-foot tall “Unconditional Surrender” statue. The statue, fabricated by Seward Johnson, has graced (or disgraced, depending upon your perspective) the city bay front since 2004.
