“Lemme ask you something. When a man steps up to you, unado?”

“Fight him. Duh!”

“So if a guy nudges your shoulder or steps into your space or postures for you?”

“I put him in his place.”

“Why?”

“Ndio ajue mimi ni mwanaume.”

“Right. So a man can’t like, walk past you in the street and nudge you.”

“Nope.”

“Or grab your hand.”

“Nani!!”

“Or pat your ass.”

“I’d kill him.”

“Uh-huh. But it’s okay to grab MY ass?”

“That’s different.”

“How?”

“You’re soft and pretty. Your parts are meant for grabbing.”

“Whether I want you to or not?”

” … “

“So a man can’t touch another man, under any circumstances, but any man can touch any woman?”

” … “

“Because that’s what we were put on earth for? To be touched and played with?”

” … “

“Whether we want to be or not?”

” … “

“Juu kuma ni kuma, sindio?”

” … “

“And you can do it to my kid?”

” … “

“And when you’re done grabbing my ass, boobs, and thighs in public, in private, without my consent, you can do whatever else you want?

“Now wait a minute-“

“Why? Because there’s a line? Because when I say ‘Don’t touch my breasts’ you’ll ignore me but when I say ‘Don’t rape me’ you’ll listen?”

“I didn’t say that-“

“No? What did you say then?”

I’m not a rapist!

“Riiiiiiiight. Okay. But because I’m soft and pretty and made for grabbing, you can wait till I fall asleep on the night bus and put your hand under my school uniform skirt?”

“That didn’t happen.”

“It happened. To me. And many others. School girls. Adults. Old ladies. Nuns. Hijabis. It has happened. It happens. Men do it. More than once.”

” … “

“So. You can touch my soft grabbable parts when I’m asleep. Or awake. Or in a matatu. Or on the streets. But a man can’t graze your shoulder without you fucking him up?”

” … “

“And when some man touches your daughter. Your wife. Do you still think it’s okay because she’s soft and pretty and made for grabbing!”

“Don’t talk about my women!”

“Oh … I’m sorry … are they any less female than me?”

” … “

Listen.
