Did you take a wrong turn into Italy?

I absolutely HATE the 1% of men in the world
Thank you.

Thank you for being reasonable, even though you're bloody furious (and rightfully so).

It's decent people like you who stop the world from degenerating into chaos, violence and general unpleasantness.

More than it already is, I mean.

You have, I am sure, the support and sympathy of the other 99% of men in the world who appreciate the fact that you noticed a difference.

I dug up this old thread because I'm in the mood for a rant and at present I have no one to rant to.

I absolutely HATE the 1% of men in the world who (for reasons completely beyond my comprehension) think it's a great idea to ogle, make catcalls at, and otherwise harass women. I just got back from a one-hour bike ride, and on four separate occasions guys went out of their way to yell, whistle, call me names, etc. One guy in the passenger seat went so far as to hang out of his window when stopped at a red light, beckoning me over.

What do they think will happen, realistically? That I'll come running over to them, throw off my clothes, and immediately have wild sex with them? Or at the very least, swoon at their feet and pledge my undying love and devotion? Give me a break. I don't find it flattering and I certainly don't find it enjoyable. I find it demeaning and embarrassing.

I know I shouldn't let this bother me (and let's be realistic, for these guys it's probably as close as they'll get to action all year anyway) but it still really gets my back up.

Rant over.

Heather
oioi... I quite understand... I was on my bike a few years ago and got pulled over by pervy policemen... all they wanted was to perve and had no reason to stop me at all

But hey, think of it this way, you're hot and you can now go and laugh at what useless pea brained idiots walk the face of this earth... and if you have a hubby or boyf you can count yourself lucky to no longer have to be "out there"...

Re: Rant [about everything and about nothing]

Can't believe I missed a rant about your mother thread til now!!! And now I'm so excited to discover I'm not alone in my general allergy to the woman who raised me that I can't think where to begin!! Possibly because recently I've taken to not caring so much that she doesn't care. Hurrah - I've successfully self analysed and saved thousands in potential shrink bills, all thanks to the good old EF

Just be smug in the knowledge that if you did call their bluff it would probably frighten the life out of them. Chaps who feel the need to behave like that are probably unsuccessful with the opposite sex and sleep with a teddy bear.

Sweeping statement over...

Alternative action is just to stick two fingers up at them or another appropriate gesture.

(Edited....) Feel free to contribute any form of rant of your own to this thread, I don't think anything is off topic.
[Rant] On this Forum many people pose their questions in this form:

"Where can I find the best"... [ Handy / beer / coffee ]

This really annoys me, as how the heck am I supposed to know what sort of coffee or beer they prefer? [/Rant]

Stupid, stupid people!
