I agree. Having sons and raising them alone showed me a lot about how we don’t touch and coddle boys the way we do girls. I went out of my way to show my sons affection and not make the mistake of having them adult too soon. As a woman I could sense when men would be in need of touch. Unfortunately it’s taboo. Women can’t touch men without being a Jezebel or tramp. Men can’t hug a woman without being accused of crossing the line. It’s time for this rule of not touching men to die.
