I do not mean to be a fear-monger, I mentioned this on another thread but when I looked up "sexual harassment" in the forum search, nothing came up -that I could see - and I think this is kind of important.
Does anyone else have a problem with riding on relatively deserted, back-country roads and getting hollered, whistled and honked at, sometimes even stopped, by creeps? The kind that actually stop you to subject you to a truly obscene suggestion? This has happened more often than I would like. I actually stopped riding a while ago because I was, frankly, scared to go out. My fears have subsided with time, but honestly - out there by myself - what could I really do? I live in Deliverance country after all (movie reference)- and I have been stopped two or three times - once while I was just walking somewhere. I don't stop anymore, by the way. I used to think they wanted directions, now I don't care if they do.
My dad wants me to buy a gun and get a liscense to carry it. Ugh! I hate that it comes down to that. Just leave me alone!
Any suggestions? Anybody else?
