Fed-Up Woman Uses Fake Hickey 'Hack' To Get Creepy Guys At The Gym To Stop Hitting On Her

Being a woman in society can come with a side of torture in the form of the way women are treated in public places. Almost no man or male-presenting person has to think about what they're wearing, how they walk or if random people on the street are going to follow them with violent intent.

With women, however, there is no such luck.

So whenever a new hack certified Creepy Man Repellent goes viral, people want to know about it. And TikToker @blackmarketbagelsociety found a way to stop getting men to "correct her form" at the gym.

All it took was a little eyeshadow and a creative location.

Guess my form is just better this week also shout out to my team mate for this idea #howdy #gymhack #lifehack #gym


“Life hack- no man has tried to correct my form since smearing brown eyeshadow on my neck like hickeys,” she captioned the video.

TikTok was impressed.

One person commented:

"No hate. But Is it possible it was their way of flirting? Seeing hickey's means you are taken so they don't try to flirt."

This comment received a follow-up video in which our original poster, or OP, says something to the affect of "duh" for 31 seconds.

Reply to @raskandrew that’s the whole point #howdy #sillygoose

"That's the whole point," they captioned the video, alongside the hashtag #sillygoose.

Other women in the comments shared what they had to resort to to get men to leave them alone at the gym.

“I bought one of those silicone wedding rings (they’re like $5) and I wear that at the gym and no one bothers me anymore,” one user wrote.

“The fact that we have to mark ourselves like animals to get guys to stay away from us is ridiculous."

So men, if you were looking for an excuse to offer unsolicited to correct that cute girl's form at the gym...

Don't.

Leave her alone.

Let her workout and maybe we can make the world a safer place for women one day at a time.
