During June I started keeping track of how many times men make me feel uncomfortable, like gawking at me, yelling things at me on the street, etc. I feel that it is super important to let everyone know how frequent this happens and how much it hurts. I have never met a girl who enjoys getting cat called. Most women find it offensive, uncomfortable, and degrading.
In June I was made uncomfortable by people on the street 118 times. That is almost 4 times per day in June when I was cat called, told that I look sexy, men hollering "ooooOooOOo" at me, or guys gawking and making hand gestures towards me.
I do not dress to attract men, I do not dress to please you, I dress for myself. This is my way of expressing myself. PLEASE stop making me feel uncomfortable and upset. The other day after confronting a man who was gawking at my roommate and I and explaining that we don't like being told how beautiful we are by strangers on the street, he responded in shock "wow, you really stand up for yourself". wat?!?! OF COURSE I STAND UP FOR MYSELF AND SO SHOULD EVERY OTHER WOMAN! You can do it! Any response is better than no response in my opinion, if you respond by saying "stop" it makes them re-think why they did what they did, even if it does not change their actions it will make them think "why did she tell me to stop?"
Think about that.
