Weird quiz

You Are 70% Boyish and 30% Girlish

You are pretty evenly split down the middle - a total eunuch.
Okay, kidding about the eunuch part. But you do get along with both sexes.
You reject traditional gender roles. However, you don't actively fight them.
You're just you. You don't try to be what people expect you to be.

Freaky day

I had this very bad experience today. As most of you would know, I had met with this accident some time back. Today, I started riding my bike again. I had gone somewhere for some work alone on my bike. (here, it is important to understand that a girl riding a motorbike in India is VERY unusual. I get stares from people all the time.)

Anyways, as I was riding back home, I noticed that a van was following me. Then I thought that I was just being silly. But to be sure, I stopped my bike. To my horror, the van stopped too and a man stared at me from inside the van. I started riding again and he followed me. He followed me for some 4 kms. I was like totally freaked. The worst part was that at least the last half a km that I had to cover was like a totally deserted road and it was dark. Lets say about 8:30 in the night. I tried all the tricks. Stopped, changed direction unexpectedly, etc...But he still was on my tail.

When I reached the point where the crowded roads end, I parked my bike, called up a male friend of mine and went home with him. Can you believe it? As soon as that creepy guy saw my male friend he just sped away from there.

I was so relieved.

It sucks. It sucks to be a girl in my country. Nothing is safe for you. Not even riding alone.
