I thought I would chime! Myself & my friend (Streatham) were only going out for our daily exercise during the 1st (hot) lockdown and I was made to feel uncomfortable around 10+ times. I think an old guy held his gaze on his bicycle for almost the whole length of the street, almost crashed his bike. Then another guy in a delivery van gazed so hard at me and my friend walking in normal gym clothes he ran a red light and almost hit another car. lol

it says for running but generally a great real for day/night, running/walking! I once had this great guy defend me and my friends when we got screamed at by a man in deplored market and this guy came up to us and was like I’m so sorry, just want you girls to know you didn’t do anything and that he was out of line and it was just so nice to have someone noticed, to know that someone was gonna back you and to speak out for once rather than me seeming the crazy girl that shouts back.
Hahahahahahahaha what is wrong with men, it’s actually hysterical their behaviour, comments and actions towards women since covid. It’s like the world going mad has made men go even madder. In the first lockdown i was on a run and this car slowed down and some dirty bloke was staring as he was driving, so I stuck my finger up at him in which then resulted in him driving up the road, doing a U-turn, then slowing back down alongside me and saying ‘come on love that wasn’t necessary‘ so I responded with neither was your staring in which provoked him to scream ‘well you should put some more clothes on then!’ then he drove up the road and did another U-turn and came back along side me and drove slowly up the road next to me for like a minuet before driving off. Disgusting. I saw this great post on instagram the other day about how men can be better allies to womxn in the street, I’ll try find a link for it and post it because it’s so important for everyone to be more aware and recognising the fear womxn and GNC people have for being harassed.
