He thinks I’ve got lots of time on my hands, I will start another thread to catch a few bites.What does the OP think?
With respect though, this incident happened as a result of over-exuberence and stupidity rather than any deliberate targetting of you, because you are a woman. It was certainly inconsiderate but I suspect you felt unsafe because of the situation, rather than because of your gender.If you see idiots behaving like idiots, then call them out, or let a steward know. I have felt unsafe at games, especially one game at Selhurst, when Barnsey equalised near the end of the game. I was sitting near the front because I can't stand for a whole game now, alongside another pensioner, and stupid fools came running forward, kicking and breaking seats, and piling on top of us. Fortunately @Biscuit saw me and came to help me.
Don't give me any old rubbish about grassing people up. Look after your own fans including the women.
Crodo, get another hobby, you are starting to sink lower and lower.
This! to be honest In general I don’t feel unsafe going to football and I go to a lot on my own. but then I am a 50 year old I know, when I was younger I did and would have to put up with groups of pissed up men shouting lurid comments and abusive. I don’t know what the answer is, my 20 year old daughter has to put up with the same sh!t as I did today.How about some men stop acting like complete dicks and maintain that in life outside of football as well.
Genuinely pleased for them.I know plenty of women who go to football and they've never told me they feel unsafe
100%.Whilst I normally appreciate your humour, Crodo, I fail to see the humour in the subject of women’s safety.
Just not that funny, is it.
I thought I wasMore to the point, what do women think? Heaven forbid that we should ask any.
For instance, my idea would be yarnbombing. Cover the new glass tunnel with woolly world cups to welcome Mac back. But what do I know?
I thought you were too!I thought I was
A woman is murdered by a man every 3 days in this country. Over 500 000 reported cases of DV by men annually. 1 in 4 women raped or sexually assaulted. 97% sexually harassed. I guess it depends on your viewBan the modern fearmongering information society that makes people believe that there are murderers, terrorists, rapists, robbers and jacktherippers hiding in every street corner, apartment and park in every city 24/7.
Yup, it does. The "1 in 4" usually quoted number is based on one flawed survey afaik. But regardless most murders and other severe attacks against women doesn't happen the way it is often portrayed in movies etc. Statistically speaking the unsafest place for a woman is to be home with her boyfriend/husband. Yet many fear to go out and do stuff or take a walk after dark, which is a result of blowing up the risks while failing to mention that 99.99% who takes a walk in a park or go to some event will come home unscathered.A woman is murdered by a man every 3 days in this country.
