After the viral question was posted on Twitter, women are weighing in

Activist and trans woman Danielle Muscato posted a simple question on Twitter last week: “What would you do if all men had a 9pm curfew?” The question, and the dozens of answers that have come as a result, have since gone viral.

So many of the women's answers describe the same wish: to be able to exist alone at night without fear of what may happen to them. We could walk home or use public transit without the fear of being assaulted, or keep our windows open to let in a night breeze as we sleep, or take a run without having the sun beating down on us.

These tweets show the glaring inequality between men and women. There are so many obstacles women have to deal with that men don’t even realize (like pay inequality, for one example), but the inability to walk outside when it’s dark without our keys clutched in between our fingers is one that’s so deeply ingrained that it seems impossible to even imagine feeling safe at night.

Maybe just... keep scrolling instead

On Thursday, model Ireland Baldwin posted a photo of herself in just a thong with her butt exposed, posing on the balcony of her New York City hotel room. Instead of staying quiet and scrolling past it, like most family members would in this case, both her father Alec and uncle Billy Baldwin just had to post their thoughts on it.
