I don’t know what, if anything, it says about me or my life experience… And I’m not a mom, so I have no idea of teenage girls and how trustworthy can the be nowadays… But when a woman/girl tells you that a man makes her uncomfortable, you pay attention!
I am a fervent believer on female instinct.
We, as a species, have evolved to survive and persevere through the ages. That’s why blood rushes to our legs when we’re scared, or why babies can block their airways when submerged. That’s why our finger and toes freeze first and why we sweat.
Why can’t we believe then that we -women- can feel lasciviousness even in apparent friendliness?
Besides that… I found the first short story in Slasher Girls & Monster Boys to be quite grabbing… Even if it took two goes to really enjoy it. It had nothing to do with the story itself.
