This afternoon, my friend and I were on a shuttle and we were in seats that were facing 2 men. As the ride went along, the men proceeded to take a “selfie”. But, it kind of looked to us like they were taking pics of us. I asked my friend and she said that she thought they were taking pics of us…

It’s completely fine to ask such things, it’s your right to speak up. I think you have no need to worry about anything and there’s probably not much to say about it. Men need to stop being pricks about shit when it comes to women. Good on you for attempting to stand your ground on your rights as a public citizen.

Thank you SO much. I needed that encouragement :)

I need some tumblr support right now. Like, women’s rights and rape culture support.

This afternoon, my friend and I were on a shuttle and we were in seats that were facing 2 men. As the ride went along, the men proceeded to take a “selfie”. But, it kind of looked to us like they were taking pics of us. I asked my friend and she said that she thought they were taking pics of us too. So, I got out my phone and took a “selfie” to see how they would react. No reaction. I then got my nerve up and flat out asked them if they took a picture of us. One laughed and the other said “psh no.” I asked if I could see their pics, and the one guy showed me his pics and I did not see any pics of us. They then asked me to show my pics, and I did (thank god I deleted my pic of them right after I took it). One of the guys was good hearted about it (possibly mocking us? Not sure) and the other got really offended.

I told them that I was sincerely sorry, and explained that it made me feel uncomfortable so I thought I would just ask. I also realize they could have taken a pic on another camera app that doesn’t show up in camera roll.

Men, if you want anything to change, don’t get offended when women make you own up to your potential actions. You have no idea what kinds of things creeps do these days. The women is being BRAVE AND INTELLIGENT, not stupid and ridiculous.

Tumblr, i need you to give me support/criticism. I am feeling very insecure about what I did even though I know in my head it was the right thing (maybe?)
