    Women only train carriages (cars)

    I'm not going to give an article, because this goes beyond an article. I don't want to debate the merits of that. I want to talk about the idea of female only train cars. In the east this is a norm actually. And it appears to be making a rise in the west. The reason is mostly due to safety and a free ride from sexual harassment. Now some will say this is regressive. While others say it's putting a bandage on a problem while we work on a solution.

    What are your thoughts on it? Your non pc thoughts, that is.

    This shouldn't even be a consideration. What's next, segregated airplanes? People need to be responsible for their own behavior, and held accountable for their actions. Don't harass anyone, and they won't need to get away from you.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    I don't think it's about segregation. You'd still have the rest of the train/subway being normal. It's just about having one or a certain number of cars being for women only.

    I think it's cool because I know lots of women would prefer riding there, so why not?

    It begs the question of why men might have a hard time dealing with women on an equal basis. This is my take on Women,I LIKE women(not just in a sexual way) I also like women who are Intelligent,and interesting in non sexual ways as well. Different in delightful ways,but also good company and interesting verbal interaction.

    Just my way of living,but yours may vary....

    I'm having a hard time understanding how this is related to what I said. Can you please explain what you mean?

    They'd have to have a men-only car as well. And then they'll all argue about where the transgendered people should go. Trans-transit?

    Re: Women only train carriages (cars)

    No different than having white only cars so they don't have to deal with the uncivilized black folk. Same arguments too: "Just look at the statistics!" or "Some of my best friends are X, I love X, but..." or "They can't help themselves, they're just born violent."

    Literally the same arguments.

    "I cross the street when I see a man walking towards me because I'm afraid he'll rape me." is perfectly acceptable but "I cross the street when I see a black man walking toward me because I'm afraid he'll mug me." is racist and horrible.

    You can't have it both ways. "Privilege" isn't even a factor, it's about thinking about fellow human beings as categorically different than you and thus a threat.
    Trust is knowing someone or something well enough to have a good idea of their motivations and character, for good or for ill. People often say trust when they mean faith.

    I wouldn't mind having a place to put her so I can enjoy my train ride in peace.
