Vaginas public property on 'Back Road'

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I refer to Karen Lloyd's Sunday Gleaner column, 'My vagina is not public property', dated August 3, 2014.

Women are given the latitude to amplify their bad experiences with men, but when the menfolk encounter Amazons who display uncouth and raucous behaviour, most times their protests are brushed aside.

Those women who line the roadway on Port Henderson Road have poignantly declared that theirs are public property.

Not too long ago, an event was taking place on this renowned road popularly called 'Back Road' that caused vehicular traffic to come to a virtual stop. A group of women presented themselves in an almost nude state banging on the cars of male drivers, gyrating and virtually 'swiping' the cars, including mine, with their private parts. This was certainly not a clever way to marketise their dismal future.

So Ms Lloyd, your article might have ignited the feminists, who are like horses wearing blinders but sedated with innuendos that evoke sympathy, and lacks objectivity.
