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.

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.
