🧵 This is a Matt Walsh video I recently had the displeasure of learning existed. In the video he reviews a children’s book, and repeatedly expresses disgust at the idea of children setting firm boundaries. So let us go over this, and how it relates to his other comments.

m.youtube.com/watch?v=icPDEm… Here is the video itself, because I’m sure there will be ample accusations of “taking out of context” and other such nonsense. I encourage you to watch it, but be warned, it is very very creepy and uncomfortable
🧵 the general message of this book can be summarised as “it’s ok for children to set boundaries, even with family”. Seems like a pretty innocuous and positive message, but according to Matt Walsh it’s “the worst book he’s covered yet”.
🧵these pages give an example of a child setting a boundary around physical contact. He’s asked to sit on a family members lap and responds by politely declining. Matt’s response is, quote, “what a brat”. Followed by a clip of a child screaming and having a tantrum.
So my hypothetical is this. If a child has been molested by, abused by, or knows a family member to be an abuser, should they be forced to hug and sit on the lap of that person, knowing that person may abuse them?
