For The Men Who Can't Keep Their Hands Off Women, Tracee Ellis Has Written A Children's Book For You - ZUMI

A lot of these men out here have been told that when a woman says no she means yes. If you come across a bunch of these simpletons please do not hesitate to via GIPHY If the urge for violence is not that strong then you can take the scenic route that Tracee Ellis Ross has taken because sometimes talking should be accompanied by illustrations. Tracee Ellis Ross has a word for men who don’t know how to act. The Black-ish star graced The Jimmy Kimmel Show recently and addressed the influx of sexual harassment cases that have been circulating in the news whilst simultaneously giving men the scoop on what not to do with their hands. (Or their junk.) “Treating another human being with respect isn’t complicated but it seems confusing for a lot of men out there,” Tracee said as she introduced her “children’s book for men” titled, The Handsy Man. Passages from the book read like something between Langston Hughes and Dr. Seuss, and included instructions for men who seem a bit confused about the concept of consent these days: You may not compliment my butt You may not call me “ho” or “slut” And even if you’re stoned or drunk Do not expose me to your junk And if I am your employee don’t rest your hand upon my knee No, I won’t sit on your lap I shouldn’t have to say this crap Tracee’s book is a reminder to men of what is appropriate and what is not, and an affirmation for women to stand in your power and be validated in your reasons for saying “no.” If you aren’t comfortable, that is more than enough reason for them to discontinue their behavior. So Handsy Man, if you’re still confused whether your behavior will be excused I’ll say it clearly, nice and slow If she doesn’t consent – the answer is NO. I hope that the not-so-subtle subtleties of Tracee’s book shed some light on the climate of sexual assault that is happening across all industries. Since they all want to act like toddlers who do not understand simple instructions then we’ll treat them like the children they are.
