Why do you feel like you're walking on eggshells, though? I just ignore them and keep it moving.
It's what you make it.

I'm a guy so I don't really know. Maybe the possibility of being assaulted is in the back of their minds?

That's always in the back of our minds regardless. That's just the way it is but I don't understand why one would have to walk around on eggshells.

But I think that’s what is meant by walking on eggshells. Constantly considering what action or reaction an unknown man may have. I guess I know too many women who have been assaulted. It’s always at the forefront of my mind.

I'm one of them, and I still don't keep that in the forefront of my mind.

This is the second thread recently that reminded me of an incident that happened here a little while ago. A young lady in Macy's I believe was going along and this guy was trying to talk to her, she blew him off, he got offended, called her a b*tch and shoved her. Unknown to him at the time, she was the daughter of the chief of police and the store's security cameras caught the whole thing. Big news here, which sprung many discussions on how women are approached on the street and how these incidences happen often and are increasing. Not everybody is all bad and brave especially young girls hence my use of the word eggshell, some do feel that way. I may not be all worried about myself but I was majorly concerned about my daughter and what she faces day to day.

We were on the BART in May and we heard this guy started telling a girl he thought she was beautiful and a hot mama and how about it, she very politely said "no thank you" and smiled. After a bit the guy started in on her again (he was twice as old as her and possibly under the influence) and this time she was firmer in her no. He started calling her a bitch and a ho and she got off at the next station and he followed her. sad I don't know what happened after that, but I hope she got help.

There are some pretty sad, pathetic wonders of the world out there. The stories, I've heard, seen been a part of. My neighbor told me once they saw my daughter flip a guy on the sidewalk cause he kept pulling on her, and hassling her. The way they told it had me laughing to tears but I felt pretty good knowing she could handle herself if need be.
