Skip to comments.Eagan: Marty’s advice unfair to women
Posted on 02/19/2014 7:17:11 AM PST by ConservativeStatement
After an attack on a woman in the North End, said Mayor Marty Walsh, Id just ask women if youre walking, you know, walk in pairs, dont walk around alone, particularly at night.
I read this advice, well-meaning and well-intentioned, no doubt. It made me nuts.

Better yet, walk with a couple of good friends. Mine are named Strum and Ruger. But I hear Smith & Wesson make great escorts as well.
Having come of age in the urban jungle of NYC in the 60s & 70s, the mayor gave pretty good advice: walk in pairs or in a group of people when leaving parties. Good advice for men too. Apparently, the author never heard of Jesse Jackson’s famous statement about having someone following him one night, turning around, and relieved to find it was not a black youth. Men live by the same restrictions as women in urban jungles.
Lemme see...Ms. Boston Herald, who exactly did you vote for every election over and over. Now, the people who promote the violence you’re complaining about are oh so compassionate, so I guess you just have to STFU! Embrace the suck and enjoy the knock out game!
She’s a liberal, imho.
Yes. It IS possible to get a CCW in Massachusetts. The Lord knows how long that will last, so get it NOW!
My best GF is named KIMBERly.
It’s only Margery Eagan. Her column in the Herald fills space like graffiti on a wall.
Poor thing...she was lost in a tragic boating accident offa Southie....

I gave similar advice to some women on DU once, and you cannot belive the vitriol that was heaped on my head.
It’s like they would rather be raped than take commonsense step to minimize the possibility. It’s like that if you don’t agree that women can do anything without exposing themselves to danger, you are no better than a rapist, yourself.
In a perfect world, maybe that would be so. Let’s even concede that the world actually can be perfected as liberals so fervently wish.
That still ain/t the way it is today.
