    and brings to mind two other events that I didn't think of last night--being grabbed when I was in my teens by the older brother of a child I was babysitting, and being followed in a car at 3 miles an hour when I was jogging.  
    These things are so common that we don't report them, don't think them unusual.  But they are events that color the life of all women and affect the way we live in subtle ways.

    •  Well you learn not to say anything. (0+ / 0-)

      Our laws and our society acts as if, unless someone actually touches you, or assaults you, then you have nothing to complain about.

      But if the people in that car following you, had assaulted you, it would have been your fault for not notifying the police of a behavior that they likely would have downplayed to begin with.

      You know--perverts will be perverts.
