So let’s talk.
As a neurotypical: What if your actions were so misconstrued that you were physically subdued against your will, forcefully, even brutally? What if this happened not once, not twice, but again and again? What if this happened in front of your friends? What if this happened minus any witnesses because you were isolated in a solitary confinement of sorts? What if no one even bothered to ask you what was up, why you were acting in such a way? What if no one asked you your opinion about helping to prevent it? What if they didn’t seem to have any reservations about manhandling you, restraining you? What if this was business as usual for them, no apologies or remorse? What if they maybe even thought you deserved it?
