A Male Perspective

I was jogging in rock creek wearing a t-shirt and shorts and a car with at least two women honked and at the same time the women yelled “woohoo” and kept driving. No guy should have to experience this, it’s unwelcome and disrespectful. Women in DC should know better.

  1. I wish he had elaborated more. How did this make you feel? Does this happen often? Why did you feel the need to discribe what you were wearing?

    I think that a conversation about harrassment towards men is important to have, but I wish there was a more solid jumping point.

    • “Why did you feel the need to discribe what you were wearing?”

      I assume for the same reason many women describe what they’re wearing when being harassed—to prove that they weren’t dressing in a way to deserve harassment. But we know it doesn’t matter what one wears because harassers don’t discriminate.
