i work with homeless, and addicted women, often they are survivors of brutal male violence. i have increasingly been told when i try to get them in the women's shelter or rehab, that they left and won't go back, due to harassment by aggressive trans-identified males (TIMs), open masturbation, leering at them in the shower, etc. these women feel safer on the street during a pandemic, than in the places meant to help them, because of males' feelings being placed above the safety, boundaries, rights, and agency of actual women.
