On Telling Strange Men that I am Married
Rachel Toliver

You know…I’m a funny girl. Hilarious even at times. I’m a strong woman. I don’t feel intimidated often and I rarely feel reduced to being “less than”. But…I complained the other day about a man who was rather pushy toward me and was undeterred until I said “I have a family, yes…7 kids and I left them all with my husband…poor guy…just so I could quick run to the store. This is the only ‘me time’ I get! Hahaha!”. And, a male friend of mine (who I’ve known for 22 years) replied “point is, be grateful people still look…”. THAT pissed me off. So now…as “an older woman” of 40 I should just be thankful that creepy guys check me out?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
