All this is before you get to the fact of being Single White Female. The word respect is thrown around but get use to these 2: intent and contempt. Men approach you with intent to do you while the women look on with contempt for the man wanting to do you. I felt it but mostly when I was perceived as a single black American. I never had a problem when I wore a tee shirt with the maple leave. When they ask are you from Canada, since the dear Lord hates like liars, I reply Canada is very special to me.
