Woman complains she didn’t get a seat on the bus…and uses tznius as a reason why she should get it?

with 2 comments

Got this from Independent Frum Thinker.

The woman complained that 1) No man gave her a seat and 2) Because she was bumping into men because the bus was moving she was violating tznius.

*rolls eyes*

When did it happen that accidental bumping become violating tznius? If you feel that is the case, then please, go ahead and get yourself a car and make sure you have four amos around you that no one can violate.

And also, just because a man doesn’t give you a seat on the bus it doesn’t mean they are being rude. They might look fit and young but you do not know if they have some underlining problem that prevents them from being able to stand up at that moment and they need to sit down for their own health reasons.

  1. i agree
    the guy can have rheumatoid arthritis or a heart condition or maybe mono or who knows wat and it wouldnt be apparent to someone looking at him on the bus?
    looks can be deceiving.

    for anyone of any gender to feel that they have a right to someone else’s seat just because is wrong (i dont mean an obviously ill person or a pregnant women)
