        This is actually so meaningful. I wish more people were aware of this.

          Alright that is enough procrastination for me today. Like I started with Cats reviews and then I was bored enough to check how Buzzfeed is doing lately . You know its amazing that some videos and I dare say a lot don't even crack 100.000 views. Now I know why WTF am I watching

            I think this is not necessary. Instead tell people to learn to assert their own personal boundaries and I think people should be able to expect their boundaries to be respected without having a clothing item that says so.

                        I would be very sad if I could hug or touch anyone, I can’t live without hugs 🤗 or cuddles, or kisses

                                ...im pretty sure i read a fanfic where zach, eugene, steven, andrew, ryan and shane were challenged not to have any physical contact with anyone for 24 hours

                                Just me?? Okay

                                    I just don't like to be touched so I don't touch people unsolicited in general but the idea of people being immunocompromised and shouldn't be touched to keep them healthy wasn't something I had thought of before. As someone from appalachia it's kind of strange to not hug/shake hands especially with like older folx.

                                        Being autistic/savant and having abuse PTSD I'd love to see more awareness with this brand/concept so people like me could have an easier time without having to explain it to each new person

                                                I am autistic and I really love this. I HATE being touched without knowing its coming. I don’t know how to explain it but especially when I’m overwhelmed it hurts kinda like I’m being shocked.

                                                  This is so ridiculous, if you don’t want a hug say you’re sick

I just don’t know them. I could have really used one of those items when I was pregnant. Random people would just come up and start rubbing my belly. I hated it. My belly was super stretched and sensitive and it would actually make me nauseous. So now I NEVER EVER touch a pregnant woman’s belly even if we’re related without asking first.

It's so uncomfortable for someone to physically trap you on a hug. Or even lingering touch on the shoulder or something can make you feel real creeped out. I eventually grew out of it, or grew into hugs...

I've survived over 15 years of physical, verbal, & emotional abuse since I was 5 yrs old. I am not a fan of hugs, pats on the back, or hands on my shoulder, or any form of touching without my consent. I just rather not. Part of it's fear and being uncomfortable and triggered to the times I was hurt. I love this movement and hope we can make it more normalized in our daily interactions. Thanks!
