“What’s wrong with saying “good morning”?
There is nothing wrong with saying “good morning”. Unfortunately, 5 minutes before you said good morning, another man commented on my ass… and 5 minutes before that another man followed me in his car, and last week, I said “good morning” to a man on my block and he followed up by commenting on my breast… also last month a man grabbed my butt as I walked to the train… etc. etc. etc. Try to understand that this is not about your attempt to be polite. Women are at war in these streets.”
