A Guardian article about a woman cyclist being knocked off her bicycle by a raging man, and also providing a litany of such abuse, whether verbal, psychological or even physical, and being yelled at yesterday while I was calmly cycling IN A BICYCLE PATH makes me think back about this subject. Now, while I'm an ecosocialist and certainly an ecofeminist, I strongly reject the idea that women are somehow "closer to nature" or by nature more sensitive to environmental demands (Margaret Thatcher... Sarah Palin ... etc).
And as usual, men in the comments (I'm not going to read through all of them), denying that this is a gender or gendered issue - all I can say is that we've seen the same stuff around here recently about an utterly unrelated issue.
Some of us can't even count the times we've been given unsolicited advice on how to cycle, what (bicycle) to cycle, what to wear and what have you, as well as the usual lewd comments about private parts and bicycle saddles...
My late friend Claire Morissette (of Le Monde à bicyclette) wrote on the subject of cycloféminisme in her book on cycling and our future, and in a brief article (in French) here in Canadian Woman Studies:
Cycloféminisme ... La pédale douce

I put this in feminism, though it could also be moved to "out and about", if that is preferred.
