Said the guy who knows absolutely NOTHING about being female. When was the last time you were walking down the street and had someone comment on how you were dressed or looked? When did you last feel SO threatened you had to stop and think about changing your route home, or decided not to go somewhere because it would be at night and/or you would be by yourself? When you were growing up, even as early as elementary school, how many times did someone make a sexual advance on you? I don’t know the answers to those questions because I don’t know you. What I DO know is that any time I’ve gotten together with a group of women, these are the types of common life experiences women have had. I can’t say it’s 100 percent true, but it’s more often than you would like to think. So, before you tell a woman to just get over herself, maybe you should listen and think about how that would feel if you were her. If you can’t do that because empathy isn’t your thing, just maybe you could talk to your female friends or family members and ask them if they’ve experienced anything like this. For God’s sake, don’t be so arrogant as to write a response that says this writer’s life experiences aren’t real. As the old saying goes, you don’t know what it’s like until you’ve walked a mile in someone else’s shoes.
