Thank you for mansplaining my life and my experiences to me Tony. I don’t know how I’ve survived this long without it. Of course, everyone should have situational awareness and do their best to not look like a target, but when little girls start getting harassed on the street at aged 9 and 10 by grown ass men, this is when they learn to run this non-stop threat assessment. The onus should not be on children to have to protect themselves at that level!
