[+1,135 / -116] Make men only sections too. I don’t know why men have to suffer being treated like perverts and there are even women who take advantage of such social stigma and try to scam you for money.
[+867 / -100] Wow what a dumb idea…why don’t you just make a women only city?
[+803 / -105] I’m a girl and wouldn’t it make sense not to do these things but punish sexual offenders more severly? Make them unable to take public transit or hell just cut it off. This only makes women look worse just cut it off it’s easier that way.
