“If I am looking for new nicknames such as Chocolate, Sweety, Asmar or whatever else I shall consult you, until then: F*** off!”

This is something that did not only happen once and not only in one place but in different spots in Beirut and elsewhere. Often while walking in the streets, men amuse themselves with while walking in my direction of coming pretty close, so that I either have to jump to the side so as not to touch them.

Simply that is annoying, I don’t want to be misanthropic, but please, boys, men and gentlemen: If I want my body to touch you, I will let you know. If I want to get shouted at, I will let you know. If I am looking for new nicknames such as Chocolate, Sweety, Asmar or whatever else I shall consult you, until then: F*** off!

Back to the story I was telling. So some of these men have the tendency to come pretty close what as such is annoying, the really disgusting thing is that there seems to be a habit, especially among members of the highly respected military and police, to wait until I am close, then make one, two steps in my direction so as to be very close and sniff. It may not be a big thing, it happens without words, but everytime it happens I feel slighty violated. Do not ever sniff me.

  2. Dogs like to sniff. I guess we can treat the sniffing men like we do with sniffing dogs, shake them off. Except I’d probably be nicer to the dogs than the men.
