Hey, so I’m 15. I’m scared of older men. Not like a phobia but... Thankfully I was born into a great family with so much love so my fear does not come from here. It comes from seeing all those news every single day, being catcalled since I was a little girl. I can’t even wear what I like when I go out in public in some certain places, old creepy men already stare at me while I have sweatpants and a mask on. You might think that I’m exagerrating but of course I know that not all of them are bad, but I just feel the need to be cautious. I try not to go out alone especially at night. I’m always with my friends or family. I’m just 15 so I can’t drive until I’m 18. my parents or friends take me to places. Sometimes I have to take public transport but that is so scary. But it is even scarier to take taxis I never take them alone. I’m planning on taking martial art classes after covid. and I’m thinking about pepper spray. do you have more suggestions for cautions?
no offence to good nice older men.
