"If you don't like people looking at you, stay inside"

I recall an incident where the guy says, "If you don't like people looking at you, stay inside," right before I maced him. That's a ringing statement that he sees us as not even being persons, but an object to control. The fact along that they get violent if their sexual advances are rebuffed shows that - just like rape - it is not about sex, or you, or your attractiveness, but their desire to have power over you against your will. I find no matter how you tell them off, they will come strong, especially if you are weak in your rebuff.
