Just imagining if the world we lived in was one where explicit communication, boundaries and consent were standard concepts that children were exposed to at a young age and raised to understand.
How might the world be different if we all learned early on that our own needs have value and we can ask for them to be met? That we can set boundaries based on them? That we have agency over our actions and do not owe anyone a presence in their lives? That learning how to hear “yes” and “no” are important skills?
What would our teen years look like? Our 20’s?
What different decisions might we make?
This is why we need time travel. I want a “New Game+” option.
@AudreyJune roughly 40% of my brain is devoted to knowing what I would do in a NG+ and has been since I was like 20
