Crystal Roslyn Mary Granado回憶她的兒時創傷：
#LifeInLeggings He was asked to watch the kids while Mom went to the store. I was three. He told me to come sit on his knee. I said no. You smell. He made me sit on his knee. Pulled apart my baby legs and ripped my panties off and stuck his fat calloused fingers inside of my vagina. I cried. He said he would make my mother beat me. I was afraid. I hate you.
#lifeinleggings Walking with my key in my hand, ready at all times to be used in self defence. Looking behind me at least 3 times before I reach my car. Checking the back seat before I open the door. Opening the door quickly, slamming myself on the seat. Shut the door and lock doors immediately. Sigh. Start ignition. Drive.
#LifeInLeggings is utterly soul-crushing to just read. There have been points when I had to stop because I could not stomach any more.

#LifeinLeggings is the story of women AND girl children btw. A large number of the stories are of childhood events. Add the stories of our male children. Add the stories of our dead children. Measure the country's level of civilization against that. Hold that up to the debates you hear in Parliament […] the disrespect and contempt meted out on top of that. Match it against ‘civil society’ who is about ‘country first’, the police service which features negatively in many of the stories, the parents who watch and stay silent, the parents who just stupid, the deviants, the pretenders. Maybe we can muster enough energy for something other than money and vanity to ‘riot’ after all. Nah, too risky.
#LifeinLeggings 這個標籤名下的故事來自女人「也」來自女孩。這些真實故事裡很大一部分是兒童時期所發生的事件。當然也有男孩的故事和死去孩子們的故事。從這些故事來看，就可以知道我們的國家有多不文明，再拿這些故事，去比較看看，那些在議會中 […] 不尊重與鄙夷女性的辯論。拿這一切，去挑戰那些主張「國家至上」的「文明社會」人士、那些在眾多故事中形象負面的警察體系、那些只會袖手旁觀並保持靜默的愚蠢父母、那些變態、那些騙子。也許吧，也許最終我們能召集足夠的力量，不是錢也不是虛榮，來辦一場「示威抗議」。不，這太冒險了。
Be gross. Today a man in the maxi [a minivan-type taxi in Trinidad] had the audacity to tell me that my p*ussy must be fat […] I LOUDLY and NAIVELY explained that it is not indeed fat, I have my period and it is soooooo heavy that I have to layer my pads creating the illusion of a hefty p*ssy. “I doh want to hear bout dat!!!” He was disgusted
Again, I had to educate him, “thats what p*ssies do!!! Thats how it prepares us to have your babies!!!” […]
The maxi is extremely quiet. It starts with a giggle. Then the entire maxi is laughing at the man's discomfort. #LifeInLeggings
Be gross. Pick up space. Attack using any and all weapons in your arsenal: cussing, humour, disgustingness, anger, shyness, needing a friend, tears…. I the Feminist Fairy grant you the power….
你得要噁心一點。今天在maxi（千里達國內一種迷你巴士型的計程車）上一個男人厚顏無恥地跟我說想必我有個肥厚的陰部 […] 我「大聲地、傻呼呼地」跟他解釋，我的陰部其實不肥厚，我的月經來了而且流量超超超超級多，多到我得用好幾層衛生棉，所以才會製造出肥胖陰部的假象啊。「我才不想聽這些！」那個男人覺得噁心。不過呢，我得教育他，「這就是女人陰部該做的事啊！這樣才能給你生孩子嘛！！！」[…] 那台迷你巴士上整個超安靜的。然後開始有一些笑聲傳出。接著整台迷你巴士都對那個男人的不自在爆笑如雷。#LifeInLeggings 你得要噁心一點、改善這個處境、用盡任何你有的武器發動攻擊：咒罵、幽默感、搞噁心、生氣、害羞、需要朋友、眼淚….作為「女性主義精靈」我給你這些力量….
Having a female friend in primary school who tried to kiss on lips and touch your V because she loved you.
And thats how ‘love’ was shown in her home.
Mind you she was 5.
#lifeinleggings Watching a friend trying to be strong after being called a sellout and a traitor and even threatened for ‘snitching’ on her bf after he raped her.
Who really betrayed whose trust?
Ignoring men when they're cat-calling and calling out to you as ‘Beautiful’ ‘Sexy’ ‘Family’, and as soon as you pass them, they further disrespect you by telling you that ‘You not that nice anyways’ or ‘One day someone would f*ck that stink attitude out of you’ with some of them even going to the extent of yanking on your shoulder or following you #lifeinleggings
#lifeinleggings is having to tell a group of grown ass men to stop harassing me while I teach children in an outdoor yoga class.
Antonya Pierre 對此表示同意：
#Lifeinleggings. When ‘Good morning beautiful’ is no longer a pleasant greeting or compliment because it is usually the preamble for some form of harassment.
Denica Shute 這邊講得很清楚：
‘Women are deserving of respect regardless of what we wear and we refuse to subscribe to the notion that men simply cannot help themselves to sexually harass or abuse a woman because of what she is wearing.’
Raeesa Francis-Ochoa 補充說明：
Men who have an issue with the hashtag #LifeInLeggings are the reason why this hashtag exists.
In 2016, why is it still not okay for a woman to vent about the abuse at experienced from childhood to adulthood which still affect her daily and she may never be fully healed?
Additionally, why are women also finding issues with the hashtag? Just because you don't have an experience or feel like sharing your own, doesn't mean you can be Petty Patty and stop others from participating in the trend.
Rhoda Bharath 回應：
#LifeInLeggings: When from hairless babies to balding grannies get raped, but you feel attacked by a hashtag.
Carima Nemai 發文：
#lifeinleggings made it as easy and common to demonize men as it has been easy and common over the years to objectify and sexually assault women. #whenthetablesareturned yes feel uncomfortable, and feel attacked and feel responsible even if you aren't, most importantly FEEL!
Obviously not every man is guilty and not every woman would have been a victim, but the rape culture is bigger than every one of us! See and feel that!
Dion Boucaud 表示：
You cannot decry a legitimate movement by making the issue somehow about yourself and then, when you are called on your bullshit, berate and chastise everyone […] who disagrees with you. Then today you're crying oppression, stating that you're attacked by perceived feminist because they don't agree with your useless opinion. All that makes you is a special kind of stupid.
Photographer Mark Lyndersay 也說：
The #lifeinleggings hashtag is a challenge for men. Some to confront the horror of these stories, others to know their place and to understand that these are women's stories to tell, whatever their tone and sentiment. […]
These stories are about a line ignored, crossed and trampled on.
If you are a man, read them without making it about you.
這個 #lifeinleggings 主題標籤對男人來說是個挑戰。有些人去面對這些故事裡的駭人，有些去明白他們的立場、去理解這就是女人得說出來的真實故事，不管裡頭語氣怎樣、不管情緒怎樣。這些故事是關於一系列被遺忘的、被忽略、被踐踏的人們。如果你是男人，去讀這些故事，然後別想把這些故事變得好像是你的故事。
