Turning your head around to stare at a person you don't know is creepy.

However it is such a rare occurrence on public transport such that in my 18 years of using buses and trains in Perth, Sydney and Darwin I have never actually seen it.

It's like the other ad the Victorian government showed featuring a fictional incident of a man ripping into his wife over burning the meat at a BBQ. I have never seen an incident like this, and while it may occur, it is rare.

The state government has taken two rare problems and presented them as though they are frequent problems. Many people are smart to their game.

Hence the aggressive reactions from the other side on social media, including some posters on here.

It's such a poor way of addressing a general problem in our society that needs to be fixed.

Ever seen what happens in mother's groups on Facebook and the like? It's the most toxic environment I've ever seen online, and I see everyone's deleted posts here!
Not first hand but have heard a lot from my missus. It appears that you get judged for every facet of the birth process, those who get caesareans and don't breastfeed seem to be top of the list. I wonder if this is called toxic femininity?

Perhaps as a consequence of society long saying a single mother is a particular type of person - long-indoctrinated positions about this sort of thing.

That could be true, and a lot of it might be that mothers with partners think they need to be celebrated more because they are doing it "the right way". There also might be a bit of jealousy, single mums do seem to get out and party a bit more.

I don't think I've ever seen a wife cooking a barbecue, we have come a long way but this is a man's job always.

Guys guys guys....sorry I sprinted here as soon as I possibly could to bring this to your attention!!!

There is hope. In a sea of virtue signalling a weak-minded loonies a beautiful swan has emerged!!!

I think I'm in love with her. Logic, beauty, and she doesn't think masculinity is toxic.

If only mutual respect for other people was considered a thing, and not only certain subcategories.

Problem solved :thumbsu:

Joyce Vieira punches man she caught pleasuring himself nearby her photo shoot.
Joyce Vieira, an amateur MMA fighter hailing from Brazil, was reportedly taking part in a swimsuit photo shoot on a beach in Rio de Janeiro recently when she was interrupted by a creep who was masturbating nearby.

According to reports, the 27-year-old fighter claims the man had his shorts down and was standing in front of her and her friend while pleasuring himself. Vieira then took matters into her own hands and punched the dude until he retreated.
