The Minar e Pakistan mass groping video is especially bone-chilling because you know it's such an ever-present possibility in our depressingly male-dominated streets. Widespread gendered apartheid has created a brutal masculinity that loses control at the mere sight of women.— Ammar Rashid (@AmmarRashidT) August 17, 2021
