Many women know what it is like to get unnecessary attention from men in the underground. In Twitter a serious discussion about the behavior of people in the underground that may be considered as sexual harassment broke out. British journalist and TV presenter Piers Morgan wrote: "What is wrong with modern feminism?"
This topic in the Twitter was raised by Dina Rickman, who commented on the inscription on the board "The thought of the day" in the underground. This week someone wrote on it: "If you see something beautiful in someone, tell them. It may take a second to say, but for them it could last a lifetime". Dina shared it in Twitter having said, - "The thought of the day: why not take the time to sexual harassment of a stranger".
Piers often raises the themes of sexism and feminism, so he could not help but express his opinion on this matter. He commented "The whole problem lies in the wrong modern feminism". Many users supported Piers. And Dina explained her position as follows: "At first glance, this comment on the busiest metro station in London is harmless, but some people will take it as a signal, that it is normal to approach unfamiliar people and comment on their appearance. A stranger can regard this as sexual harassment. Although I agree that everything depends on the context”.
It is always pleasant to receive compliments, but when they are made by people you don’t know, then you can take them wrongly. Dina noted that not everyone likes it when someone comments on their appearance. It should also be said that in recent years, according to Transport for London, reports and arrests about sexual behavior in public transport increased.
