A beautiful woman will have doors opened for for, literally and figuratively, solely because of her looks her entire life. She will get job offers over men and women infinitely more qualified for the position simply because of her looks. She will talk her way out of traffic tickets by flirting with the cop. She will likely marry way above her economic/social/education class due to her looks. That is a "privilege" that very few are lucky enough to be born with.
I recall opening a door for a woman because I was taught to be respectful. She gave me a nasty look and said : "I can open the door myself." Now my parents also told me that not everyone has good manners and to ignore the bitter people.
No where will you find a law that protects you from feeling "uncomfortable".
Almost every encounter we have with people is "a situation [we] did not ask to be in." Feeling uncomfortable is a psychological response, which can be healthy/protective in certain situations (e.g. if the man had told her he wanted her to join him and his friend for a threesome); but when normal conversation and comments make you uncomfortable (one person asking another for his/her phone number is normal in our society, and no more harmful than asking for a dollar), the problem really is with you.
Wow, and I thought the Jews who lived in Europe in the 1940's had to live on the defensive. Who knew it is so much worse for wealthy Hollywood actresses?
Her tweets make me uncomfortable.
Everyone is a victim now days. An owl outside my house woke me up last night, so I am claiming to be the victim sleep deprivation due to animal abuse!
Women try their best to look hot and sexy 99% of the time, especially Hollywood women, but if someone notices and heaven forbid, asks for a phone number, they suddenly have to claim they have been violated somehow.
"I hope you take the time to learn more about the experiences of women. It's real + scary sometimes and people like you can make it better" it's only as scary as you let it be. don't make other people responsible for making you feel comfortable. this sentence says because you are a woman, you are meek and childish and need to be handled delicately. is that feminism?
Start eating ice cream and ho-hos each night, and you won't have to worry about being so defensive and scared.
I went grocery shopping the other day and the woman working the cash register started talking to me. I felt uncomfortable as I only came to buy food, not have a conversation. She even looked me in the eyes!
