Too true…

A frightening, but all too common occurrence in this story.  Thank-you to UnWinona for having the courage to post it.

To quote a friend: “Men: Women in public do NOT owe you a conversation”… and to that I would add:  They don’t even owe you a SMILE. They don’t owe you ANYTHING.  And it is NOT your right to demand ANYTHING from a total stranger, just because she is a woman.

I remember as a teenager, coming off the dance floor at a club, SWEATING profusely, and heading to the bathroom when a guy came up and asked me to dance.  I said, “Sure. I just need to go towel off in the bathroom and cool down for a minute or two…” and he replied, “You beautiful girls are all the same, Stuck up Bitches!”  All because I wasn’t IMMEDIATELY available to him and responsive.  CREEPS abound.

And in great juxtaposition, I present this piece, which challenges men to stand up to puerile, bullying, loutish behavior and harassment:  https://www.facebook.com/notes/ernest-w-adams/a-call-to-arms-for-decent-men/10151960903620290

I do love this retort in his article:

It’s hypocrisy. How come they get women-only clubs and we don’t get men-only clubs?” Because they’re set up for different reasons, that’s why. Male-only spaces are about excluding women from power, and making little boys whose balls evidently haven’t dropped feel special. Female-only spaces are about creating a place where they are safe from vermin.

    I know it’s been over five months, but I really wanted to comment. Thank you for sharing this Natalie, of course as a female I have dealt with harassment before the first time when I was only 7! And from a group of teen boys from a car. This needs to end.
