On the way home after an exhausting day, I am confronted with a crowded MUNI subway car. This may sound familiar.
The car quickly fills with a flock of SF State students. I am the only male in the compartment. I am quiet and listening to my headphones, reflecting on the day per usual.
I notice myself getting a lot of looks, and remain passive and unamused while glancing and laughter in the car increased.
It went so far as prior getting off at the school, I believe the girl sitting next to me took an unwanted photograph of me.
Recognizing this is what women go through constantly and avoid social scenarios depending sometimes on potential threat/predatorial behavior alone, I cant really get behind my own shame and embarrasment in this occurance.
Incase it has ever been questioned,
You have rights to all the space your body exists in.
Especially on trains and subway cars.
A common dating site’s algorithm generates multi-acceptable
Questions answering to who exactly,
When context of the question asks if you- presented in scenario crowded subway car- would you believe it acceptable to grope an attractive stranger, circumstances dictating that person w ould never know it was you.
I hope I never fail to see how this is not a multiple-acceptably answered question.
Never see blatant predatorial assault as anything but true ugly damaged aggressions it leaves on people.
We live and die in this vessel called body.
Captain it fiercly.

I’d be all for creating a viable alternative to capitalism.
