Aibu to think that I should be safe from men making inappropriate comments when I am carrying out a simple task?

Group of young men making comments and associated noises about the size of my derrière (nice size)

YANBU. I cannot BEAR the opinion of many that we should somehow be "flattered" that a Man has bestowed his attention upon us. It would just be nice to get on without worrying that someone's going to make a personal comment about your appearance.

Did you miss the memo that said as an attractive woman you are there for the entertainment and appreciation of all men the moment you step outside your door?!

Yanbu, it really annoys me (as you can tell)

That's the thing I am not very attractive!

Makes a change from some of the comments I have had before losing weight I suppose.

Yet another example of everyday sexism <sigh>

Ignore them OP.

Thinking it is nice but these thoughts should stay in their heads! Like Squeaky though I'm a total hypocrite, if I am feeling good about myself then I like hearing it.. confused

Yabu to generalize all men. YANBU to find this specific group of men annoying.

RubieWoo Sat 23-May-15 22:15:15

Just filter it out

Where the hell did she generalise all men?
