"This is for anyone who thinks women are being a little dramatic when we say we have to go to full extremes to basically be left alone." Women share all the things they do to stay safe ...

    Yep. Got whistled at and semi-chased to my car at the gas station. Then they followed in me in my car for several turns and blocks. NEVER GO STRAIGHT HOME. Also always have your keys out and waiting. Put them in your hand before leaving what ever building your in.

    This is why quite a few women, young to old, in the US carry concealed weapons. Doesn't have to be a gun, could be a knife, a pair of small scissors, ANYTHING to cause damage. Always be aware of your surroundings and listen to your gut instincts ladies, it will keep you alive!

    Yup some guy followed me off the train, at night, walked right up beside me and started talking, came real close, I gave him a fake name and phone number so he wouldn't follow me down an unlit street, he said he wanted a kiss so I smacked him in the head with my bag full of heavy books and ran crying. I wasn't even in my own city, I was visiting my sister in London

    1,000,000% females know it’s not all men, but females grow scared of all men, because of what they have been through, every girl has a story or knows a girl that has a story, please don’t get offended when we are scared of you. Physical and mental abuse/ harassment can leave scars on you that might never go away, there will always be a part of me that will flinch when someone moves to fast around me or a loud bang happens, I will always be hypersensitive to emotion as I grew up in a household that at the flick of a switch the Energy would change. This isn’t trying to degrade what a man goes through, this is trying to educate

    I remember I was walking with a stroller and my 3 months old baby in the park when a man started to talking to me I did not say anything and he still followed me. I was really scared, and he was telling me some “compliments” about my body and that he wanted to be my friend. Y’all I was using a big hoddie and sweatpants.

    In my early 20s at my work a man used to come in and wait for me to wait on him. He would try to keep eye contact every second I would make his omelette. After the first time I told everyone how gross I felt. After a second time I vowed to not wait on him. When he came in the next week my co-worker basically had to say I was burned so I could not cook his omelette. After that when he came in people would warn me and I would hide in the walk in cooler. He finally got the message. But over a year later I spotted him on a billboard and pointed him out to my hubby. He informed me that he was a member at the country club where my hubby and I met. Soooooo creeped out.

    Girls are taught from a disturbingly young age that they are targets, how to avoid the most vulnerable situations and how to defend themselves from rapists and men who don't respect them. How desperately sad is it that a 5 year old has to know anything about such a dark world? But we do, usually from a younger age than that.

    I would never accuse any woman of lying about these situations.....but I have to ask; how often? How many times has a situation like those described happened to YOU personally in your life? Not the "precautions" you take (which are about media sensationalism), the actual problem situation.

    I was recently reprimanded by my assistant manager for being rude to a customer. She didn't understand that he had been there twice that day and had made inappropriate comments to me.

    Talk about how we also have to be survival nice. Meaning you don’t want to be bothered but you fake a smile or laugh hoping the guy doesn’t go crazy on you if you reject him.

    I couldn't get rid of a guy at a bar tonight. He kept trying to convince to get a lift from him to my home when I told him I was going to get a busride home. I decided. I did not want any strangers to drive me anywhere OR have my home adress. He asked for my name so he could find me on FB, so he could find me. I gave a fake first name but also declined getting acquainted on FB. He kept asking me to visit him in another town. I declined He bought me a drink after I declined his offer. I still declined and I left the bar. I am still amazed about how much we (anyone, not any particular gender) have to decline so many times, and still not being heard ?

    It's so sad that even myself and some men friends of mine admittedly feel bad when walking down the street a few steps back behind any women any age, that we have the need to either go slower, or change sidewalks, or something of the sort just for them to feel safer... So sorry for what the world has become :(
