This Never-ending List Shows Things Women Do to Stay Safe on a Daily Basis


Want to know why women are so angry? This is why women are so angry

Drew McKenna, a mom of twins and reporter in Oklahoma, recently shared an eye-opening post on Facebook which serves as the perfect illustration of WHY women are so angry. It’s as clear as a (never-ending) list on a T-chart.

What steps do you take, on a daily basis, to prevent yourselves from being sexually assaulted?

Drew McKenna shared a passage from a book by author Jackson Katz called “The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help.” Katz, a prominent social researcher, has done an exercise with his audiences many times where he asks men and women what they do on a daily basis to prevent themselves from being sexually assaulted — and then comparing their responses.

“At first there is a kind of awkward silence as the men try to figure out if they’ve been asked a trick question. The silence gives way to a smattering of nervous laughter. Occasionally, a young a guy will raise his hand and say, ‘I stay out of prison.’ This is typically followed by another moment of laughter, before someone finally raises his hand and soberly states, ‘Nothing. I don’t think about it.’”

Use a home alarm system.

Don’t wear headphones when jogging.

Avoid forests or wooded areas, even in the daytime.

Don’t take a first-floor apartment.

Go out in groups.

Own a firearm.

Meet men on first dates in public places.

Make sure to have a car or cab fare.

Don’t make eye contact with men on the street. Make assertive eye contact with men on the street.”
