For what it’s worth, Father Kinsella taught us Catholic boys to be careful and keep our hands to ourselves and never to make a female uncomfortable. I’ve done the best I can to comport myself accordingly.
However, at the risk of making a controversial statement, I do not want to live in a 1984 world where people are walled off from each other and human contact is closely monitored and regulated. We all need touch. Any reasonable emotionally mature adult, male or female, can immediately sense the difference between abusive and dangerous behavior, creepy or mildly inappropriate behavior, or simple acts of affection.
Things are getting out of hand.
