She could barely make it across the road to Liberty Plaza without two men following her. ___ Firstly, let’s start with the obvious: Sri Lanka, if not a rape-ey culture, a very unsafe environment for women in general.

As men, we don’t often see this – the moment we appear, all of this fades into the background, and we’re left to wonder what kind of peculiar first world problems women seem to have. To test this, a friend and I walked for about a kilometer along Thimbirigasyaya.

___ Now while discussing this, this friend of mine who walked across the street pointed out an interesting little factoid: a couple of years ago, she’d modelled in a slum.

It was a very poor, very, very tiny community, and while she fully expected to be stared at like an exotic animal, she wasn’t. I’m no village boy, but I do have a dubious claim to that title – I live in a little village in the arse end of Ragama and partly hail from a place in Ratnapura where people give you concerned looks and make you tea if you ever make the mistake of speaking in English.

But it is true that within a small community, you get much less of the leering and the rapey faces.

This is largely because in a small community, you tend to a) know that girl and b) know that her father, brothers, uncles and/or any other males in the general vicinity know who you are and where you live.

That debate was won a long time ago, and the world still hasn’t caught up with the law.

It’s not that all of them are alluringly sexy (sorry, folks) or go out in leather and heels every day.

Historically, it always does – consider, for instance, that in the U.

S., a white man and a black man are technically equal – until they aren’t.

Then we backtracked, with her walking about 50 meters ahead and me following, and I watched. This isn’t the kind of wolf-whistling you see in Hollywood movies.

It’s not the damn-she’s-hot double-take of the eyes. While my friend wasn’t touched, I think I can honestly say I’ve lost count of the times someone’s told me about being felt up under their skirt, or about being followed by a tuk, or just plain fapped at in public.

Most women do what they’ve been told to do: ignore it and keep walking, try not to cry – and hope they don’t touch you.
