This is the rock-and-a-hard place I find myself in. I think most women have been touched inappropriately at times. Sometimes a makeout session where the partner decides to see if 2nd base is in play, anonymous strangers on a crowded train, drunken jackasses at parties.
No it's not acceptable, but where do you draw the line? I was at a bowling alley once. A guy came up and grabbed my butt. Both hands. The only thing that traumatizes me about that incident is that I didn't break his nose when I punched him. I was trying, dammit.
How can I say "boys will be boys" without sounding like I have no self-esteem?
Scott Adams also has written about it. He pretty much articulated my thoughts. Bolding mine.
