Sprained Ankles

Two weeks ago I was sitting at a bus stop when a women tripped over on the other side of the road. She lightly sprained her ankle – 6 people (both male and female) descended on her to help her up and see if she was OK. Which she was as she walked away.

Today heading into work I badly sprained by ankle and ended up sitting on the curb unable to walk on it. Not one person round me even asked if I was OK. As I got up and started to hobble, people quickly looked away from me and two even laughed at my misfortune. The only difference was she was a woman and I a man, people care if a random women gets hurt but don’t if it’s a man.
