Are you worried that you have met a pervert but aren’t sure if they really are a pervert? Or are you worried that you are one?
The basic question to ask here is what is a pervert. The pervert meaning translates into Latin ‘perverte’ to overturn pervert means someone who is morally corrupted. The phrase ‘vertere’ to turn signifies something that has changed. The French ‘pervertir’ from Latin ‘pervertere’ isn’t a household name anymore.
Even the Latin pervertir to overturn means nearly the same. Now that is a middle English term, and the modern name is “pervert”.
These are the ones who will scan you from top to bottom as if you’re their meal, and their stare will be fixed on your big tits or your ass like a licentious creature hunting his next prey.
For many women out there, it isn’t easy to figure out the same. Women are always at risk of being victims of unwanted sexual advances and sexual harassment. They might meet many guys every day and distinguishing who can be a true friend and who cannot be a hard task. It’s 2020, and cities around the world are still not safe places to be.
In a world of misfits, rebels, nerds, and the common people, you also have the category of perverts, and they are ones you need to watch out for. No matter what the policy and law enforcement are in a country, this category of people exists.
If you look at a dictionary, it denotes those perverts are people with unacceptable sexual behaviors. You don’t need to know the definition or the thesaurus, though – if someone makes you feel uncomfortable with their behavior or language, you need to know when to pull the plug.
It would help if you were very careful about it because it’s like anyone around you could be a pervert. It can have a perverted doctor, uncle, older man, teen, or, say, a perverted family or even female perverts such as a perverted mom. Should you come across perverts, don’t hesitate to raise your voice.
Interestingly, more people fall in the pervert category than you would think. While statistics say that most of them are men, it isn’t always necessarily so.
How Do You Identify a Pervert?
It is hard to tell the difference between a perverted person and a normal person. We all have our sex drives and we talk about it sometimes. It is hard to tell when lines are crossed. Encounters with strangers can turn into incidences of sexual harassment. So, it is important to set boundaries. So, how do you identify and know whether someone is a pervert?
We made an infographic to help you with that!
For example, did you know that some people believe that Charlie Chaplin belongs to this category? The next time someone wonders if they are one, show them this list – this pervert category of people has been around for centuries, if not more. For instance, did you know that many of the well-known people you have studied in your history books didn’t have a great reputation otherwise?
Women often feel unsafe in public and private spaces. In sexual harassment cases, it is understandable that they want to be able to screen for offenders. Perverts think differently. Some may even seem ‘normal’ at first until you wait for them to take off their masks. Here are 11 ways to know if a person is a pervert or not.
I don’t need to be explaining this. But to the hard-skulled damsels out there, a guy is the exemplary perv if he gawks openly at all the short skirts and tight T-shirts strutting around. You don’t want anyone doing that to you – and you shouldn’t have to face sexual harassment.
His eyes would probably havoc on your soul just by the sharpness and dedication with which he looks at you. They probably have stronger X-ray eyes than Superman himself. These people, as they say, have the power to intrude with their eyes moving to the top and bottom of a woman’s body.
Dear girls, when you find such a leering jerk, don’t hesitate to give him a tight slap. It’s one of the easiest ways to teach them a lesson.
2. Touching Inappropriately
We have been taught about “good” touch and “bad” touch right from our childhood. Even if not, our badass girlfriends teach us as we grow up.
If a person is a perv, his eyes and hands are never in his control. They are remote-controlled by his “significant” body part. He is always finding reasons to touch you inappropriately, no matter what the situation is.
If a guy is totally into you, he makes excuses to grab your arm, hug you, or kiss you on the cheek. Public display of affection is not wrong unless it is kept PG rated. Anyway. Mark my words, human friends, a guy is pervy if he touches your private parts in public.
Either the guy does not care about your reputation, or he is that desperate. In both ways, he is a pervert.
When someone touches you inappropriately, take your stand and push them right away. Most of the people belonging to this category are pussy cats. Show up the tigress inside you and threaten the pussy cat to keep its paws intact for life.
3. The Never-Ending Talk About Sex
Talking about sex is a common thing among friends. We are all interested in talking about sex because it is simply funny when discussed with friends. Funny as it is, we move to the next likely dumb topic.
Not here. This person will keep talking about sex or giving nasty comments, not stopping to care about how uncomfortable all the listeners are.
This distortion will obviously sound like a sex maniac and a sex guru. He never attempts to control his pervy behavior once the talk starts. He passes comments on girls passing by like she’s a land conquered.
So, girls, if you feel the least discomfort when talking to someone, ring the alarm inside your head! Yes! The pervert alerts! Hopefully, the alarm ringing inside your head will deafen you to prevent you from hearing his nasty comments and uncomfortable talks about sex.
You don’t want to wait for justice later on. You can be the change.
4. Flashing Private Parts
I want to believe the notion that everybody is quite proud of their personal assets. We store our assets like priceless possessions just for the right person. But Mr. Pervert likes to flash it to the entire world.
The brains of these people work differently. Their private assets must be considered public property, according to them. Yew, that sounds disgusting. These people will flash their private parts as if they are flashing a ray of light to a bright future.
If a person flashes his torch to you, tell him to shut his torch before shutting your eyes. Don’t forget to flash some real ray of light into his dumb brain so that he realizes that what he did is wrong.
5. Pervert Message Alert!
All those who think this is a cool and decent version of flashing your private parts, I wish your brain grew a little more. Remember, these jerks are as desperate as Thomas Alva Edison was to find the electric bulb.
Does your ‘friend’ in question send random pictures of his private parts? Because honestly, that is the best way to end an appetite. Or maybe even empty your stomach.
Sometimes, it’s okay to freak out. Because this pervert obviously does make you freak out but be sure to clear his business from your way. Unfriend him. Block him.
Please do whatever you need to avoid him. He is a potential paramaniac.
6. Have Locked on Their Phone Galleries
Normally people put passwords and locks on their apps. But think about it, why would people put locks on their gallery unless they have something to hide?
If a guy puts locks on his phone gallery, he might be a terrorist or a pervert. The chances of him being a terrorist are lower than that of him being a pervert; you should sniff his pervy behavior and start eying him out.
You may want to hear their story, but you need to be cautious. You don’t want a scenario later on where you have to call the police. It would help if you avoided such people.
I do not mean that you should go all nosy and mind other people’s galleries. I’m just saying that they might have a stashed collection of nude pictures or a lot of porn videos. Who is more addicted to porn than a pervert?
Girls, I am pretty sure you would not want to freak out seeing the number of nudes and porn videos after unlocking a gallery. Nobody wants to be shocked that way, I guess. So please stay away from the guy who has such locks for his gallery. That’s the best.

7. Those Weird, Out-Of-The-Blue Compliments
If a not-so-close friend of yours addresses you intimately, such as “baby, I’ve been thinking about you” or “sweetheart, and I love the way you move”, look out! And not to mention the compliments like “You look sexy”, “You look hot”, “You have a hot body”, you need to be careful!
Men don’t necessarily compliment out of the blue like that! Good guys do not give such compliments right away if they really respect you.
A pervert has an impossible level of confidence to outrageously flirt with a just-known person and compliment them, only to bring discomfort. Is it their dumb brains that give them these peaks of confidence, or is it because their brains moved down to their private parts as blood flows? It is a confusion that many faces.
People, I’ll say that this is an unintentional psychological move made solely to avert women. Don’t fall for this dumb move.
8. A Peeping Tom
Is the person of interest a Peeping Tom? If yes, do I have to tell them what he is? A peeping tom will peep into your privacy with cheap tricks and reap without your consent.
Don’t forget that this peeping tom does all kinds of stalking. Be cautious before he shows off his skills in stalking and peeping – and before you become his all-around customer.
9. Can See It in The Eyes
Have you ever, at least once, when you went to a banquet or a feast that has mind-blowing varieties of delicious cuisines and decided that you want to take a bite from all the dishes? Yum? That is what a pervy thinks when he sees a pool of beautiful women. One could actually catch the glint in his eyes like an eagle eyeing its prey.
If you caught that feeling, it is called the “Gut feeling”. The glint in his eyes will be so obvious that it will shout out to the world, “Hey, that’s my prey here in plenty!”
Your alarm will automatically start ringing at the highest volume when it finds its eyes prying.
All you need to do is trust the alarm when you hear it. You can decide to take a cab or drive on your own to run away from that perv!
10. Goes All Touchy
Perversion can express itself in different ways. Worse, these people can be from different careers – from doctors and lawyers to politicians. Some men behave politely and assist women in the nicest possible way that one may stop and think, ‘what a gentleman!’.
These “Oh-what-a-gentleman” might actually turn out to be a pervert, later girls! You will never know who. You always want to wear those CID glasses and protective gear that has sensors to detect pervy behavior.
Once he gains trust, he goes all touchy, leaving us mentally shocked and scarred for life. The memories will haunt you. Don’t be naive and trust no one.
11. Wants Sex Stories
It is quite normal and honest to speak about past relationships. It is also normal if someone is curious about your past and your relationships.
But if a guy asks you about your sexual resume with all the slightest graphic and gory details, your alarm must start ringing, ladies. Think of all possible ways to end the talk and escape. He is a PERV!!
There are more corrupt people out there than you would think. These people are extremely interested in sex stories and highly fantasize about them too. But girls don’t give in to their ‘friendly’ talk. Their butter will eventually melt, leaving their shit exposed.
Go with this guide and have your alarm ready. This guide will help you to tweak your inner sensors and your detective mode in finding a creep. If one is a perv, don’t forget to knock him off along with all the bullshit he brings to your life.
I am sure you are strong enough to face this bunch, so don’t back out. And if you think you are a pervert after reading this, you sure need to set your life priorities straight. If you have faced unpleasant instances because of them, don’t hesitate to seek out support or justice. No, you aren’t alone in this, and you shouldn’t be.
It would help if you led from the front. If you ever face an uncomfortable scenario, don’t back out. Never let these corrupt people win. It’s high time women became truly free from these creeps. That can only happen if we don’t allow injustice to happen.
