The Realities of Street Harassment

[TRIGGER WARNING: PEDOPHILIA, MALE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN]

Look what you can learn by asking women about their experiences!


You should click through to her Twitter account to see the results of all polls on the subject. Nearly half of all women were 12 or under when they were first catcalled. The vast majority don't find it to be a compliment and wish it would stop because it makes them feel unsafe. The vast majority find it isn't taken seriously enough. A strong majority have been insulted, followed, or subjected to violence upon rejecting catcalling.

So everyone who says "but some women like it" to defend street harassment or who think it's not a big deal can poke themselves in the eye.
