“If you aren’t my husband, you have no business touching my waist or lower back. Ever. Stop that now.”

“This! I hate being touched by people who don’t know me! Why is it supposedly acceptable to touch someone you don’t know? Especially on the waist or lower back. It’s my body. Please leave it alone.”

Neglecting their mental health

“Obviously, not all men, but I’ve known too many men in my life who neglect their own mental and physical health needs/concerns. I wish more men would seek out help for physical and mental health issues.”

“Yeah, sometimes people don’t even realize that they need to ask for help. Guys just think that everyone deals with it, so they should too.”

Commenting on female sexual harassment

“Suggesting that women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted somehow misunderstood the situation.”

Asking women out at bus stops or on the bus

“Coming up to women waiting for the bus alone at night and asking for their phone numbers or asking them out. This happens so often, and I don’t see how anyone can think it’s appropriate. Obviously, the answer is always going to be no, but it does not feel like a safe situation to give a firm no in.”

“Yes! This is so related to the bus stop issue because they purposely create a situation where one of you has to leave or endure the awfulness.”

Approaching women at night

“I mean, my best friend and I give each other a hug when we’re leaving. And not the weird handshake and back pat combo, either, like an actual hug. It’s nice.”

“One time, my husband had a work Christmas party with his 40-some-odd employees. As his wife, I felt obligated to socialize. I started talking to one guy, who blurted out, ‘I’m married!’ I was like, ‘Yeah, I know and your wife works for my husband.’

“I read something the other day that said, ‘Men can never get compliments because they assume the person complimenting them is flirting, and in turn, men assume every compliment is flirting because that’s the only time they ever get compliments.’

Not participating in household chores
