Numerous studies and polls have shown that women feel unsafe in public places – and it’s no wonder. Surveys have shown that 81 percent of women have experienced some form of harassment in their lifetime, so it’s perfectly normal for a woman to ask for her own space in public – especially when there’s plenty of space!
Well, one man who refused to offer the space to a woman recently took it to the Am I The A-hole sub to ask if he was in the wrong.
The 24-year-old man believes that he was entitled to his space, so he asked for the opinion of the Reddit court. Well, it’s safe to say that the public court of Reddit delivered. Check out the story for yourself below.
Although the opinions were divided, the larger part of responders believed that he was not in the wrong, especially after he added that they were both wearing masks and there was enough space on the bench for both of them to be at a safe distance. But what do you think? Do you think he was in the wrong? How would you react if a random man sat on the bench you were sitting at the station? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
