Thanks for the response! I agree that it’s very context-dependent, and far less of a concern if you’re in a very safe place. I swear that I always come up with witty responses after the fact — except for a handful of times, my favorite being when the door guy at the building next to me in NYC shouted, “giiirl, what you doing tonight?” To which I shouted back “not going out with you”. Small victories!
