I usually ignore panhandlers.

Yesterday I gave to a couple of them. Both were women. That's sexist, and I hate that I did it, but for a woman to be standing out in the cold rain...it just seemed like giving a little money was the right thing to do. Not sure why it happened to feel right then, but it did, so I went with it.

It probably went to drugs. But I guess there are worse things you could do than help someone with a little Christmas meth!

I never give women money because generally if a woman doesn't act like a b___h a man will take care of her generally speaking.The reason she asking for money is because she acted like a b___h to everybody

There are so very many things wrong with these statements that I literally have no idea where to start.

Just when I was starting to get a little faith in humanity, poof! It's gone.

Of things that bother me in general, panhandling is not one of them.

I rarely carry cash anyway, but if I happen to have a few dollars on me, I usually give it. I don't have the time or energy to analyze or judge their motivation, but I strongly prefer being asked to being knocked over the head and having it taken.

On occasions when I am not in the mood, I can give a dirty enough look that indicates don't even thinking about asking.

I nominate this post as the most sexist, degrading and chauvinist I have seen on C-D. Seriously?? SMH.

Don't forget the kids with football helmets on Moreland at I-20. Seems suspicious when they can't tell you what position they play.
