    I don't think it's something to make light of. But apparently you do. I'm not quite sure what to say.

    I don't think the guys are getting what you're saying, btw.
    Once in Long Beach I got stuck walking home at night about two miles in a skirt. The whole fucking time I had one car after another pull over and proposition me, "Do you date" and so on. I was literally screaming "fuck off you asshole" at them but it was non-stop even walking in the opposite direction of traffic. I'd walk past them after yelling "get away from me before I kick your windshield in" and they'd go around the block and reappear on a side street with this confused look on their face like they couldn't understand how a woman walking down the street at night by herself wasn't a hooker.

    I'm pretty sure men don't get that a whole lot.

    I see the less egregious versions frequently walking around NYC.

    Good mornin' baby
    Hey Baby

    Even just a suggestive

    Hi

    Or out of place compliments

    You look nice today
    I like your dress

    Sitting on a train a woman looks at my left hand, sees the gold wedding band and sits down next to me. Why?

    She was assessing if I was going to accost het.

    Of course she shouldn't have to think twice about it.
    Thanks from Madeline and Amelia

    I am sorry...just not in the mood to outrage about something else today. It is a serious issue....but that was not the intention of the OP. I am sorry you cannot tell the difference.

    Yeah. That's really the point.

    Seems to be posted in the wrong category then. Maybe mods will move it.

    Mocking what some have to put up with everyday in a political discussion thread, no less. What's not to like?

    I had a job back in my very younger days when I was more attractive, shall we say, and I took the job very seriously but was told by the guys I worked with that my job was just to hang around looking pretty. It was at a U-Haul moving center where I worked as a cashier but also drove and parked trucks as large as 24 foot and taught male customers how to drive manual transmissions. As well as performing maintenance on the trucks.

    One of my bosses put the moves on me one time (while I was living with my husband before we were married and my boss was well aware of this) and I had to fend him off without losing my job.

    This shit isn't funny or anything not to take seriously. It sucks. And while it may occasionally happen to males, it rarely has the consequences or affects them in the same way. It's not funny or something to make light of.

    Sorry to ruin the mood.

    On second thought, I'm not sorry. This simply isn't something to make fun of and I'm shocked that any woman would.
