I don't want to! As a woman, in general, gas stations are already sketchy when you have to get out of the car. I don't feel safe anymore, and it also took jobs away from good people. The guys that have worked at my most frequented gas stations have been replaced by automated machines. We would always chat, they'd give my dog pets and treats, and it's people like that that make my neighborhood great! But not when I get off work, it's dark and ominous asf as I stand alone outside. I'm not trying to play the victim here- I just want to be safe. And as much as I love my city, it's not safe at night anymore in Portland, especially for a woman. I've already been harassed twice, and it's turned a mundane task like getting fucking gasoline into a whole thing where I don't feel safe at all and have to plan accordingly. I shouldn't have to have a taser in my hand while I'm trying to juggle a big smelly gas pump. I want these hard working fellas to get their jobs back, and restore my sense of, or at least the illusion of safety. And yes, I know this is going to trigger some of you piece of shit incel misogynists. Stop being fucking creeps and leave me the fuck alone.
