Sexual Assault Debate

We fly or fight or freeze,
not everyone agrees -
when dealing with assault
we cannot always bolt

Some take immediate action
but shock can slow reaction
there’s truth in every faction
it’s good to raise the question

Some massive; major; minor
but no, she’s no mere whiner
degree and context matter
and please consult the data
