This post applies specifically to Italy, but I’m pretty sure, this isn’t the only country in which this kind of things occurs.
I’m 17 years old and I live in the North of Italy and I’m the avarege highschool student.
I never dress up in a way to look attractive or use too much make, nor do I go out late at night.
every single time I got the chance to go out with my friends - or even when I’m just walking from school to the railway station and go home (around 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm) - there will be an idiot
on their car who’ll honk at me/my friends, or even make gestures to imply they find my/my friends’ ass beautiful.
This is incredibly annoying and offensive, it’s repulsive to see EVEN grown up men (30-40 years old) doing these kind of things,
because this behaviour explains perfectly the role of the woman in our society: A TOY.
I’m highly disgusted by all of this male chauvinism… as if femminicidio weren’t a terrible shame per se…
Our society NEEDS to change, to improve, but this improvement can only start if the MENTALITY of its people changes first.
