Pressuring you to drink more

This one is really disgusting, and possibly one of the most accepted inappropriate behaviors of yesteryear. The pressure was so high to drink, and keep drinking. And it was done in the spirit of “We’re all just having fun!” But what would happen the moment you were drunk (by their design) is that they would start making moves on you. And you would not physically be in a place to resist them, the way you would if you were sober. It was all blurred lines then that I now see very clearly. Not only should sexual advances never be made without consent, but pressuring someone to do something that will lower their inhibitions, such as excessive drinking, is also not okay.
