Hi folks!

So women are complaining about a rise in "aggressive eye contact" from men since the masks became compulsory. They have took to social media to share their horrific stories of trying to shop whilst these men aggressively stare at them!

Being that I haven't yet wore a mask of compliance, or as some would call it now.... the mask of misogynists! I haven't been in a shop either! So I clearly am not guilty of such act of violence against the women.

So guys who wear the masks.....

Have you been aggressively making eye contact with women? Come on! Own up to it!

I think it is time we put an end to this. I'm thinking men must wear a mask and some kind of harness so the can't look up for more than a second or two.... if two full seconds isn't too intimidating, perhaps something that wraps around their scrotum so that when they look up it causes testicular discomfort! Or perhaps men just be banned all together from public spaces until they learn not to look at or near a woman!

Perhaps these animals don't know how painful it is to be aggressively looked at! There is nothing worse!

Your thoughts on this horrific abuse by these masked men?

One was a harrowing story of a man in the Dorset area, wearing a FFP3 mask, the victim, she was stared at so aggressively whilst in Lidl, she is still in therapy. Once she regains her speech she will be speaking to police. I wonder if Beach knows anything about this case! LMFAO!!!

Most of my adult life women have been complaining that the men they meet are looking down at their breasts when they should be looking at their eyes when talking.

I'm sure someone stuck their tongue out at me the other day.......They had that 'sticking their tongue out at me' kind of look in their eyes.....although they had dark sunglasses on......I could tell.........In was happening all day.....everyone I passed....

I went home and washed my hands a hundred times.....

At least I'm not paranoid......

Eurostar you have it in one. Victim Olympics. Some people thrive on being victims and pointing fingers at others for no reason.

I've found the opposite. When you are with others and all wearing masks I have noticed how much a smile reaches the eyes.

When I came to Barnsley, I see beautiful woman, I say excuse me, and she ignore me.
I say excuse me several times, and several times she ignore me.
So she walk down the road without knowing.....her dress is stuffed into the top of her knickers!

I don't think I really look at strange blokes, not eye contact, or not unless he's a work of art. Masks can have a menacing type look, I can't see many women thinking men are suddenly aggressive because they're wearing a mask.
