don't ride the subway
2 important lessons
1: Stop having a nice car.
2: Don't have a car out in public.
I just realized your comment was eight months old. Dammit.
Extremely unsettling and extremely clever, the use of colour, the perspective and depiction of subject matter is really good and adds to the threatening feeling of this piece.
Pretty much the feeling from most of us! Haha
Woman, when the train stops. Run! Run for your life! And don't go into any strange buildings. Those buildings could have an elevator that will take you down into the darkness and reveal a huge, monstrous machine! Trust me, I've seen bad things down there!
Apology taken in all points.
I checked the video. Sadly, it was about him, but he did not speak there. I checked some of the other videos where he does speak. What should I say? He is a populist and from a technical standpoint - he is a good speaker. Good because his speaches rouse people from the chair - either because they agree or because they disagree. I have not been following the political development down under for quite a couple of years so I am not in a position to evaluate whether he is right or not about many things he says. As much as I am inclined to believe that his statements about women are more than just old fashioned, I also believe he has the right to speak his opinions just like anyone else. The fact that he is a PM means that there must be people who agree with him. However, I have also a reason to believe that what he says is a well calculated manipulative pose. He knows all to well that it is going to make you gals spinning in the air with fury. And when you do that you unwittingly play the game he wants so bursting out in outrage just plays to his cards.
My personal experience is that when you rule out 50% of the population, you are robbing yourself and everyone who is with you. Women are the spice of life - sometimes a bit hot, sometimes they make it taste bitter, other times sweet. Thanks god for that, because that means it is not dull. But I guess we are getting quite far from the original discussion. If you wish, we can continue it elsewhere as it may not interest the others here.
If it stopped at staring I'd understand. Hell, I know more than a few girls who genuinely like the attention. But when the staring turns into comments, gropings and assaults, I have a problem.
It's like putting merchandise in a window. Some people glance, others press their noses into the glass and look stupid, but no one should smash the window and hightail it with the goods.
A lot of people simply like how they look in certain outfits. I recently lost a fair amount of weight. I finally feel comfortable enough in my skin to wear short-shorts, or short skirts. I can see my legs in the window of a shop and not think, "Jeez girl, you gotta do something about that." Just because I'm wearing a certain outfit doesn't mean I want the attention.
But if they express interest, and you make it clear you don't return it, that should be the end of the matter. You shouldn't have to feel unsafe in public because you are wearing a short skirt, you shouldn't have to have obscenities tossed at you because you have cleavage.
