I find it very confronting when males pay unasked for attention to me.
Like a guy in a shop asking me if he should get down on one knee when handing me my purchase and then I have to laugh and feel awkward. (I just wanted to buy a ring, dude.) Or tonight, someone else tips me 5 dollars (I live in Australia -we don’t tip- and since when do you tip people behind cash registers?) then smiles all like “I think you’re pretty, accept my money for no goddamned reason, you now owe me.”
Not that either of these things are malicious or wrong, but they just make me feel so put-upon. Or, they make me feel like I default to sexual being rather than human being with many layers. Not to mention that these guys are usually ~10 years older than me. And that is why I now have a gash on the inside of my left cheek. Because I worried it to pieces with my teeth while I was dealing with being on edge after that incident. I really don’t handle unwanted male attention well.
