Women: what did your father tell you about men and how to handle them?
My 15 yr-old daughter was telling me about an incident on the subway the other day. She handled it successfully and had no trouble, but I told her that she could have told the guy to fuck off if she wanted to. I told her this because I feel like a lot of girls are brought up to be too nice. They are trained not to say “no” and this makes it difficult for them to do so. They get very uncomfortable when they have to say “no” and this may cause them to say it too late and not strongly enough.
This makes me wonder what other women’s fathers have taught them or told them about how to deal with men. It doesn’t have to be on this subject; it could be any topic at all with respect to men. What did your father tell you?
