Women experience street bullying every day, so it is common for it to normalize or be seen as “a compliment”, even some men see this custom as a compliment or a little joke with which they can brighten women’s day but in reality they are only doing harm to girls and women.
This story posted on Reddit gave us a lesson on how to react when we see a man compliment a woman on the street and made us see that it should not be normalized. This is how this boy defended a woman on the street.
This guy just wanted to teach his friend a lesson
The post recounts how a boy who was driving was taking his friends home after a day at the gym. As the group passed a couple of girls, one of them rolled down his window and made a nasty comment at them, as if it were the most normal thing in the world.
Immediately, the driver got angry and threw the boy out of his car, but the friends who stayed in the car did not agree with the decision. On his Reddit account he asked if he was wrong.
No, compliments are not a joke, they are offenses
The boy continued to relate the story and mentioned that his friend had to walk home. He is the one who lives the furthest away, so the others disagreed. Even so, she worried about him and asked if he had gotten home safely. In addition, he told her that it was a lesson and that she should learn about respect.
This is how Reddit users responded
Everyone agreed that it was not a bad decision.
Some gave him other options in case it happened again
