    What brings you to ask this question?

    In other words, maybe you could provide context which would lead up to this question?

    You are hyper-alert to your surroundings whenever you're not in a completely safe place. You're reminded every time you walk from university to your parked vehicle that your younger brother can sit down at the kitchen table, casually eating with one hand while completely pinning you with the other arm (to the point where you can't squirm out of it) because you're a member of the physically weaker sex.

    When you're alone with male co-workers they hit on you when they'd never make inappropriate comments with anyone else around.

    You're assumed to be a worse driver than any male, you're assumed to be less cognitively competent, you're assumed to not know what you're talking about when you're dealing with anything mechanically inclined. (Once every two shifts at the bike shop, I'll stand there and spend two minutes explaining, in detail, what is wrong with their bike and what needs to be done to fix it. They'll politely listen, then turn to my male co-worker and ask him the exact same question. Or I'll spend time explaining something on the phone, they'll respond with a, "Can I just speak to the head mechanic?" So when you pass the phone to the nearest male co-worker, he repeats what you've said (with n00b employees sometimes they'll have to put them on hold to get the answer from me) and the customer believes them because their voice is an octave lower than mine.)

    Inebriated or otherwise rowdy males in groups will walk up to you and grab your ass or "accidentally" brush their arm against your chest. Males always want to touch you. You get stared at regularly. And you know what men are thinking. And it makes you uncomfortable.

    You also get business doors opening for you after hours when the male employer/employee sees you arrive to realize the store is closed, sometimes even explicitly remarking, "if you were a guy, I wouldn't have opened the door!"

    And when the right guy is checking you out it makes you feel hella special. But also sometimes like you're nothing beyond your body.

    We men need to hear this. Thank you. Respect.

    I went to a party once. Just so happened that I was the only straight male there (the girl I was dating was something of a fag hag). I was getting eye fucked constantly by men. The eye contact was crazy. Most men never make eye contact in daily life. It was just a glimpse of what women must go through on a daily basis.

    I think they do. It's just too warm to be tasty.
