Last weekend in Toulon, in the south of France, what was supposed to be a nice Sunday with friends and family turned into a nightmare for two couples, a friend and their kids.
While they were cycling and skating through a neighbourhood, they were interpellated by a group of young guys. Why? Because they found it inappropriate that the two women were wearing shorts!! They called them all kind of names (including wh*res), saying they could even better be naked.
The three men tried to defend the women asking for respect. That only resulted in them being beat down and ending up in the hospital.
Do I need to remind you that it happened in France?! The country of “Liberté, Egalité & Fraternité” (Freedom, Equality & Brotherhood)?! Anyway, it would be revolting in any country.
This event sadly echoes the story of a girl who was assailed by a group of girls last June for the same exact reason: wearing shorts!
It’s both deeply sad and revolting. Where is our society going? Why so much hate?
