SO glad there’s a ‘rant’ section!
I live in a fairly conservative/religious country, and short clothes are not very common. However it is very hot here all year and I am a practical person, so I will sometimes wear shorts (mid-thigh length!) or flowy skater skirts, but the result is always the same: I go out in public and catcalls, groping, rudeness and harassment are the norm.
At first I stopped wearing these comfortable clothes because I was sick of it, but now I have decided to stand my ground and give any man who tries to shame me for dressing comfortably a piece or two of my mind.
I am not a sex object, and I refuse to be reduced to that by ignorant sexist people.
Ladies (and gay men), do you have similar experiences?

Heck, I get occasional catcalls even when I’m fully clothed— but luckily, I never been groped.

I noticed women don’t get catcalls if they’re hanging out with at least one guy.

People are just gross and think they can do whatever they want and treat others however they please. I’m glad you’re standing up for yourself and putting them in their place! They have no right to treat you that way, no matter what you’re wearing!

religious and conservative areas are often about 50 years behind the times.

This is very sad, people can be truly awful, you should not be subjected to that, and I truly admire your courage for standing your ground!
