This Tweet About Headphones Shows How Hard It Is To Be A Woman.
Sexist and misogynist behaviour is very much alive and thriving today. Not much has changed for women when it comes to having to deal with inappropriate language and unsolicited behaviour from male counterparts. Often times, inappropriate conduct is blamed on the woman for dressing provocative, acting too sexual, and so on.
The reality is women should not have to hide behind a curtain or remain silent in order to garner basic respect. With the popularity of social media, men from every age range have used this medium to harass, bully, intimidate, and stalk teen girls and women. Males argue that this is all in good fun or boys being boys.
One teen in Newport, Wales decided to highlight how even the most innocent post is reason enough to be sexually harassed online. Her post has been retweeted over 34,000 times and liked over 60,000 times.
