"It is your body"
Gee, what do I tell him? Poor lad
Silent Sufferer, 2007-February-11
Tommy: But what if someone touches me (down there) in a good way?
Teacher: No. It's wrong. You should tell someone right away!
Tommy: but it's my body, isn't it?
Teacher: Yes, it's your body. That's why no one has the right to touch it.
Tommy: (confused) But if it's my body, why I can't I say who can touch it?
Teacher: (frustrated) because your body is yours.
Tommy: No it's not. It's yours.
Teacher: what do you mean? (Cocks head to one side)
Tommy: how can my body belong to me if I can't choose? If it's MY body why can't I say who can touch it and who can't? What if I wanted a girl to kiss me? You mean she can't even if I want her too?
Teacher: (like a broken record) because your body belongs to you and no one else. You can kiss girls when you get older. If an adult tries to touch you should run and tell someone right way.
Tommy: (at this point he was so confused he began to cry and ran out of the classroom.)
