Honestly I wouldn't have given two thoughts about some dad on the beach with his kids. Some people just go looking for trouble or assume that people
are bad and just waiting to do something. This lady and I use that term loosely, obviously had some pretty deep dysfunctional beliefs if that was her
However, I'd like to offer up a different perspective on why women inherently do not trust men. From a very young age we are taught to watch our
surroundings because some man might kidnap you and or rape you. You are taught to travel in groups to avoid such things. "You and we" meaning
young girls in general. We see other girls/women abused by men, you live with knowing there are things like abused women's shelters and the like
because men abuse women. Even in the bible that we grow up being taught, you read about men who treat women badly, abuse them, sell them, ect..
These are not even always a spoken thing, although often it is, but it is this background knowledge that all girls grow up with. Even the more
innocent things like making a joke about dad and the reactions to the first boyfriends. Why? Because boys want sex, boys could hurt your little girl,
ect.. You don't think that young girls hear and understand these things even when they are not spoken directly to her? We do and it forms an
underlying opinion of males in general. It isn't just news, it is people, it is parents, it is other kids, it is society as a whole that create
these notions. And lets face it, it isn't all untrue either.
I am 36 and generally speaking do not trust most men. Ironically,me of all people had four boys and am married. I live with 5 males! LOL I am
learning much along the way and hopefully raising my own boys to not be the idea that a lot of girls have in their heads of what boys/men are. This
is not something that women are just being intentionally awful and sexist towards men and their intentions. These are deep rooted ideas taught to
girls from a very young age.
