  1. It sounds like the Rape Culture is generalizing BIG time. Some human beings seem to over think things that are not simple and have no one solution.

    When you were talking about New York and what you do to stay safe, there was one other thing I do. I carry a purse that I can put around my neck and hold near my body. Most of the things we do to stay safe are common sense. Maybe that is the problem. There are people who have no common sense.

    You did well flying solo.
