But instead of understanding and respect, she received backlash and accusations of ruining the family's week. 😔 Let's dive into the story and see what happened...

A Simple Request Turns Into Family Drama 😵

Our 17-year-old protagonist found herself in a tough spot when her simple request for personal boundaries was met with backlash from her family. Instead of understanding, her mom accused her of ruining everyone's week and being an a**hole. The girl, who was just trying to protect her own comfort, was left questioning if she was in the wrong. But with non-consensual touch being a common issue in her family, it's clear that her request was more than justified. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 💭

"NTA at all! Here in my country, children learn already in kindergarden that they have a say in who touches them and how they want to be touched. They learn to say a loud and clear 'Stop!' (including the matching hand gesture). It is YOUR body and YOU DECIDE! Please stand your ground on this one and let nobody belittle your feelings. ❤️"
