THE BACK STORY
A few weeks ago we asked our social media tribe questions regarding Aziz Ansari and “Grace”.

Our questions – Was it a bad date? Social Cues Missed? Sexual Assault?
Well some of our tribe members responded. One of them shared a blog post written by Katie Anthony… We enjoyed her insights so much, we invited her on the show for a Cafecito chat. Check it out below.

HER ARTICLES ARE POSTED HERE:

There have been many responses… including
THE SNL DINNER CHAT SKIT ABOUT HOW DIFFICULT IT IS FOR US TO HAVE/START THIS CONVERSATION…

Why is it so tedious to start/have this discussion?
Where does it fall in the spectrum? Is this part of #metoo? Is this a bad date? Was it consensual? Was it sexual assault? Is it taking the #metoo movement too far? Was there a motive? What does this say about dating and the modern dating scene? What does this mean for us, you, and me?

down the rabbit hole we go…
As SNL illustrated… this conversation is not an easy one… but none the less, we at Cafecito Break realize that we need to have the courage to break thru our discomfort and have this conversation openly, honestly, with strength, compassion, love, and willingness to really listen. There are many perspectives to share and consider.

We invite you to listen to our show with Special Guest Katie Anthony.
