permanently unsafe

Metafilter digs in. A thread discussing boys and men harassing girls and women. What they’re put through is rude and horrible.

This understanding is new to me as a guy but I think I’m coming around. When my fiancee and I started dating she would tell me she couldn’t stay out after dark without someone else accompanying her for protection. I thought she was overreacting and needed to be more assertive, like me. It’s only 8:00pm! Ha Ha.

The more I learn about the dangers real women face in places that are comfortable to me, in daylight or in the middle of the night, the more I realize how wrong I’ve been.
