Is it just me? Or are women afraid of everyone? I was standing outside of an x-ray/imaging clinic, waiting for my wife to get her MRI. First observation: 95% of the workers and patients entering were FEMALE. Second observation: no one would look at me. I was just sitting on the bench, looking as harmless as I could. I said good morning to a few, and got a grudging reply. What is it? The morning was delightful, a nice sunny day, cool but not cold. The location was a suburban large town, Columbia, Maryland. There were a few cars in the parking lot, but many spaces left. I felt insulted and denigrated. What, am I invisible? No that was not it, because I often got the dreaded "look away". That is when a guy is walking down the sidewalk, and passes a woman, and she intentionally looks away from him, to whatever is the other direction. Can someone tell me what is happening here?
