There is so much shame and blame around lead, other mothers tell me their city or state officials have essentially told them they weren't doing a good job parenting.

In September of last year, I met a woman at a party. Aziz Ansari exchanged numbers. Aziz Ansari texted back and forth and eventually went on a date. Aziz Ansari went out to dinner, and afterwards Aziz Ansari ended up engaging in sexual activity, which by all indications was completely consensual, the next day, I got a text from her saying that although' it may have seemed okay,' upon further reflection, she felt uncomfortable. It was true that everything did seem okay to me, so when I heard that it was not the case for her, I was surprised and concerned. I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said. I continue to support the movement that is happening in our culture. It is necessary and long overdue.
