TIJUANA — Riding public buses in Tijuana can be a trying experience no matter what your age or gender, with people pressed together in old and crowded vehicles. It can be especially uncomfortable for women, who frequently complain about intrusive stares and inappropriate touching by some male passengers.

Didn’t Japan try something like this on their commuter trains?

How well did it work?

No, it was me.

From Laz to the entirety of Tijuna: I'm sorry.

I'll never do it again.

Until next time.

this kind of stuff always makes me laugh. so if you’re a woman, you get to choose to ride a segregated bus, and then turn around and demand the right to choose to be able to hold combat positions in the armed services.

you cant take a few stares, but you will put a hole in the head of the enemy?
and there is a war on woman?
actually, its a war on reason and logic.

Left Tokyo for the Kumamoto hinterland in 1995 ...This from Wiki :

In July 2002, JR West became the third company in Japan to start running trains with women-only cars, and the JR West trains in Osaka became the first to offer women-only cars during morning rush hour.[15] The same year, two more Osaka-area railways, Hankyu Railway and Keihan Railway, added women-only cars to their limited express trains, and Hankyu became the first company to run women-only cars all day long.[9] Other Osaka-area companies followed suit, including Osaka Municipal Subway, whose Midosuji Line, which carries passengers at as much as 160 percent capacity, had a reputation for having the worst groping problem in all of Japan.[16] Tokyo-area companies resisted the change because of logistical difficulties and fear of overcrowding in mixed-gender cars, but in 2005, they introduced women-only cars during rush hour, after awareness campaigns and tougher sentencing proved ineffective.[10][14]

Women-only cars have received positive reaction from some men and some women. Women cited safety from gropers, as well as not having to tolerate various smells.[17] Men cited not having to worry about false accusation of being a groper.[18] However, passengers complained about further overcrowding in mixed cars, and feared that women who ride mixed cars would be putting themselves at more risk than before.[10] Visually-impaired men have been reported to unknowingly enter a women-only car and being warned by other passengers, facing serious embarrassment.[5]

I live just a few miles from that border and I haven’t crossed it since 1991. I refuse to support the third world pisshole.

I always liked the line of taxis who would take you on the scenic route from the border to the Avenida de Revolucion. I went there many times in my misspent youth, but have no desire to go back.

Good for them. Safe and free from lechery.

Those who oppose have never been pinched - or worse.
