jamdox the fact that you personally say you don't know any catcallers is not proof that catcalling and street harassment are not a problem Jesus christ. You probably don't have any friends who declare themselves anti-semitic either (I mean I hope), so is anti-semitism not a problem?
(maybe you think it's not. As someone who just heard a friend talking about the ziobanker conspiracy, I'm here to tell you it still is. So is street harassment).
ha they get mad bcs they have this myopic view that we're talking about them. Patton Oswalt's recent public revision of his stance on rape jokes is a really good explanation/rebuttal of this mindset. @kitteh
This article rules. And men, while there is a difference between catcalling and compliments, I honestly don't need to hear either when I'm out on the street, running my errands and basically living my life. I totally do not need your opinion on anything. If you really really must compliment a stranger, make it a driveby:
You look lovely.
And move the fuck on.
Don't even pause for a response like we owe you one, because that proves you aren't being altruistic here, you're actually fishing for attention, which, guess what? We do not owe you.
And an angry response to what an ungrateful bitch a lady is for not responding is further proof that you're a sexist asshole.
