One of my clients that I used to see complained about being propositioned for sex when she went to a local bar for a drink.
Some people would say that she should not go to a bar because men would automatically think she wanted sex.
Think about that statement and analyze it. This is the natural way of thinking, but is it justified? Should women stay away from bars because men may accost them?
I totally disagree with that mentality. In my opinion a woman has every right to be respected wherever she may decide to go and a man shouldn’t automatically assume that she wants sex because she is sitting at a bar. It is this kind of attitude that is still pervasive in our society today.
It is subtle discrimination and women need to disavow such old-fashioned notions about what is “Proper “ for them to do and what is acceptable behavior for men.
