I Don’t Feel Safe Around Cis Women.
No identity promises safety.
I was walking home one Saturday evening when two women began following and screaming at me.
“HEY! HEY MAN! HEY SIR! HEY MAN!” one of the women yelled, over and over. She ran across the road and closed up the distance between herself and me. “Can I ask you something?” she asked, staring me down hard a few inches from my face.
