I personally love to be comfortable and use that criterion when choosing what I plan to wear. What if your personal style causes others to become angry and violent?

What Can We Learn?

People are unpredictable. This woman was minding her own business and exercising outdoors. Women in the park assaulted her because she did not dress to their liking. Why did I share this? People will do awful things when they don’t like what they see. It can be the simplest and least important part of their day but it can lead to an altercation. You never know what others are capable of until they are unhappy.
