Great piece Emma! I did not know that you wrote but saw the article title and clicked… surprise! I know her. As a guy who is aware of how shitty my gender can act and would never want to add to the problem or even more so would hate for a smile or regular peaceful interaction to be misconstrued, I will in a sense ignore women. It is painful to ignore or push away humans but it hurts even more when a friendly gesture is mistaken for an advance. I’d love to hear more from you on this topic.
Can you give advice to guys so that we know how to be friendly with the opposite sex or is ignoring best? Honestly
I am truly sickened and sad at the misogyny that exist… frustrated and don’t know what to do… maybe similar to white folks and white privilege.
