Queen City Confidential | by Anonymous

Dearest males of Regina: when a woman politely smiles and acknowledges your presence in a shared space, like a crosswalk or sidewalk, it’s not an open invitation to follow them for several blocks and ask personal questions. Third time in three weeks. I just want to feel safe in my own neighbourhood, you know?

DON’T BE A CREEP Queen City Confidential is an open forum for Prairie Dog readers to anonymously share their petty rants, workplace gripes, unsolicited advice and complaints about friends and family. E-mail your submission to confidential@prairiedogmag.com (type CONFIDENTIAL in the subject field). Change everyone’s names and identifying details. Submissions must be 100-200 words, and not predatory-sounding, stalk-y or socially inappropriate. Women have enough shit to deal with, ya know?
