To ‘The Bachelor’ Contestant Who Kissed Peter Without His Consent, NOT Cool

Tonight was the first episode of Peter the Pilot's season of "The Bachelor" and, as always, each of the contestants pulled out all the stops to stand out from the others.

One woman came in wearing a windmill, another popped out of a luggage (yes, a literal luggage), and another came in a paper airplane. Of course, as things always do, the limousine intros went from fun to a bit steamy with some naughty jokes and even... a kiss.

Yes, as Savannah got out of the limo, she blindfolded Peter, whispered some sweet nothings to him, and kissed him — while he was blissfully unaware that it was going to happen at all. In other words, without him consenting.

Consent (n): compliance in or approval of what is done or proposed by another OR agreement as to action or opinion

Based on the above, very basic definition from Merriam-Webster, there's no arguing the fact that Peter didn't consent to the kiss. Though the kiss itself was innocent enough and Peter seemed to enjoy it, it is incredibly problematic for anyone to assume they can do what they want because the other person might like it or, in this case, it'll help them stand out.

Had one of Hannah B's men stepped out of the limo, blindfolded her, and kissed her without her approval, everyone would have been up in arms and it should be no different for a woman kissing Peter. Consent, regardless of who the person is, is non-negotiable. Period.

*Takes deep breath.*

Anyway, if tonight's any sign of what we're in for this season, there will definitely be a lot of turbulence. Perhaps, as Chris Harrison might say, the most turbulent season yet.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
