Twitter user @DanielleMuscato started a viral thread this past Tuesday, September 25, that's become essential reading for every male in the world who doesn't understand the privilege that comes with their gender. In her original post, she asked the women the women of the world a simple question: "What would you do if all men had a 9pm curfew?"



For many women, the premise opened up a world of possibilities.



Simply being able to go for a walk at night appeared on many lists.


Many simple acts men take for granted must be avoided at all costs by women who fear for their safety.




With men out of the picture, these women definitely saw an improvement in their nightlife.




Women must be constantly wary of their surroundings in a way many men never even consider. Even taking public transit is something women will avoid without accompaniment.

Some men also sounded off on the thread expressing their shock and support.

But the list of potential nighttime activities seemed to go on and on. Women have had a huge chunk of their lives limited by the threat that men pose.



It's time men started believing women when they describe their fears.




To grow up in their world, women must be ever-vigilant, and ever-enraged.



There's no question: it's time we improved ourselves as a culture.

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
