I'm reading an essay on sexual harassment and that got me thinking about all the harassments I've received over the years. Then I started thinking if I've received any sort of sexual harassments this year and whaddaya know! NONE.
I've been spending pretty much the whole of 2009 in Australia and things have been great. The male cashier chats you up because he's being nice, it's their culture, and it's probably a service courtesy. I've always felt apprehensive about strange men approaching me because of my previous experiences but the men I've encountered here are all really polite and friendly. Lucky me.
I've read that sexual harassment is not about sex but about power and dominance. So what does this imply to Malaysian uncles (and boys) who harass girls?
