What do you think would happen to a woman wearing a sexy outfit, when she walks around the streets of Manila? In this lifetime where 'harassment' appeared 'normal' for those perverts, it's impossible for someone to avoid getting harassed.
Both men and women suffer from sexual harassment and each day, there's always that person who would walk home crying, because he/she was harassed by a random stranger in the street. Now, we have here a social experiment that explains what it's like to walk around the streets of Manila.
In a social experiment on Facebook, they asked a woman to roam around the streets of Manila to see how people would react if she'd walk in front of them.
A woman who was wearing a pink blouse and a black pencil skirt walks around the streets and surprisingly, in just a couple of minutes, the woman started getting negative words from different men. These men called her different names!CONTINUE READING ON PAGE 2
From a tricycle driver to the TAMBAYs in the street, all of them verbally harassed her using different names!
It may sound like a compliment for them, but for these women, it's not a compliment to be called 'SEXY or BEAUTIFUL' by a random person on the street, especially if that person is a total stranger to you.
In just an hour, more than 10 men have already harassed her.
Watch the video below:
The netizens then reacted on the video and said that she was disrespected because of the way she dressed, but then, a lot of people defended her and claimed that perverts will be perverts and that they should never blame the victim for wearing an outfit that shows 'too much' considering the weather in the Philippines.
The Filipinos are known as hospital and friendly that's why the Philippines was tagged as the friendliest country in the world. But then, with all these harassment and abusing towards a person, is it still safe to call the Philippines as the friendliest country in the world?
Harassment will always be harassment. May it be in a form of words or actions, it's still considered as a harassment and people should never see rape, harassment or abuse as some sort of a joke.
