“Early on in our relationship, my boyfriend had a habit of grabbing my arm and yanking me out of the way when we were walking on the sidewalk and he sensed that somebody was walking in our direction. I asked him why he did it, and he claimed it was his ‘situational awareness and heightened senses from anxiety.’ I asked him to stop. I told him that I also saw the people coming and would adjust accordingly, but just because I was a petite woman didn’t mean that I didn’t deserve to take up any space on the sidewalk.”

“It’s hard to assert your presence as a woman because people assume you’re always the one to be polite and acquiesce to others.” —u/ConniveryDives
