"The "old days"? Iv'e been alive for a pretty long time and I don't recall any such period of history.

""It’s like what you have to do to stop any ongoing pattern of abuse. Sooner or later, you have to speak up about something that seems minor in isolation. You have to say: “I know you think this is isn’t a big deal,…"
