Brazilian Woman Invents Unique Way To Stop Men Harassing Her
Meet Débora Adorno, from Belo Horizonte in Brazil. She was growing increasingly frustrated with the harassment she felt she was experiencing in her day to day life.
Last Friday she was making her way down a crowded street when “things got out of hand.” The street was “crowded, jammed, and I had to slow down and hear all those things, receiving these awful pervert stares from those guys”.
Believing that getting angry or shouting back wouldn’t achieve anything she came up with a fresh idea.
Say hello to Débora’s toothy face.
“So this guy was walking towards me with a grotesque stare, really preying on me, and before I could say anything I just did my toothy face. He felt awkward and walked right by,” she wrote.
“You have no idea! The harassment stopped in a heartbeat and NO OTHER GUY DISTURBED ME! At this point I felt rainbows inside, suddenly I wasn’t the one feeling awkward anymore and I wasn’t the one looking away anymore and I wasn’t the fast-paced one anymore.”
Her post now has 25,000 likes and over 3,000 shares. Débora had quickly created a new trend for Brazilian women. It wasn’t long before tons of people were pulling the toothy face.
Toothy face is now a meme…
