He may not think of it as an assault, but technically what he was portraying one. It says a lot about how he views his own sexuality as well as that of gay men.You're reading too much into it. Chris wasn't portraying an assault. Chris thinks of this sort of shit, regardless of the gender of the actors, as cutesy bullshit.
It was not even a typical SJW "he looked at my ankles" type of assault, it was a blatantly aggressive male taking advantage of the naivete of someone Chris termed himself as a child.
