Woman Shares Story On How She Experienced Verbal Abuse From An Online Buyer

There are all sorts of danger in this world, especially when it comes to women. Sexual assault is very common and although everyone is trying to raise awareness against it, it seems like we still have a lot of work to do.

I mean, how many times, you as a woman have feared walking down an unlit street at night, how many times have you feared walking through parking spots, or simply walking in an empty street? I get it, there are things that could happen to anyone, not merely women, but taking into consideration the statistics, one in three women, and one in six men experienced a form of contact sexual violence in their lifetime in the US.

There are plenty of cases one must be cautious because you never know with what kind of person you might come into contact with. There are situations that would seem harmless initially, but turn out to be otherwise. I get it, women have had enough of telling them to be careful, and I understand that humanity should teach their sons, and men generally to be decent, and not harm people – but in a world that won’t listen, it’s better to always be careful.

Have you ever, at any point, sold something online? If yes, you understand the anxiety or stress one may face when meeting up with a complete stranger. Ideally, one would pick a public place, or would not go unaccompanied to the meetup. However, there are certain times when the buyer should come at your home, like for example, when you’re selling furniture or, as the case we’re about to show you, a clothes dryer. This one woman shared her story on Twitter, in attempts to raise awareness for the cause. Scroll below to read what she had to say:

 

“A quick reminder for men: Common events for you can turn into really scary situations for women in a snap,” she began.

Selling a dryer would mean she needed it taken out of the house.

 

She wanted the buyer to come when her husband was home.

 

However, that didn’t seem to work out.

 

And now she needs to make a decision.

 

She tries to see the signs.

 

And then the situation takes a turn.

 

She understands that she has made the wrong decision.

 

She tried to ignore all the comments.

 

After she is free of the basement, she immediately takes action.

 

The thing is, he went without buying it at all.

 

She explains how even though there might not be a sexual assault, there are cases like this that are scary.

 

“Respect her space.”

 

And the update is too creepy.
