Being a…

pretty, ugly, fat, skinny, tall, short, blonde, brunette, red-head, light-skinned, dark-skinned, young, or old female

…and wearing…

a short dress, a mumu, a mini-skirt, a frumpy hippie skirt, shorts, capris, jeans, a suit, a tank top, an over-sized t-shirt, a fur coat, or sweats

…will result in Panamanian men…

honking as they drive by, whistling from their construction sites, eying you as you walk by then making hissing noises (yes, HISSING noises), or, worst of all, invading your personal space by sticking their face into yours just as they’re about to walk past you and saying “Hola, mamiiiiiii” (or something much more offensive).

Really, some of this happens anywhere you go in the world, but the getting in the woman’s face thing crosses a line.  Probably a huge part of why women don’t walk anywhere here…in addition to the debris in the sidewalks and the holes in the groundWTF, Panama?
