Feminism is Freedom
The worst it's been was a guy actually then planted a kiss on her because 'her girlfriend didn't matter'.
I will stick to the anger and the hot resentment that I have carried for fifty years about the intrusive, aggressive, and frankly sometimes frightening assaults which interrupted my daily life for many, many years.
I generally get cat called every day so it’s hard to pick a particular instance that was bad. It makes me uncomfortable every day.
Literally every single day of my life this happens.
So I had been sexually assaulted and then victimised by another lady
I just minimize stuff like this because if I got upset every time, I don't think I could deal with anything
I said please leave me alone- then he got in my personal space shouting ‘who the fuck do you think you are- to not even accept my compliments to you’ I said leave me alone.
and an old man stopped to ask “if I suck their dicks as well?”
but mostly I would really like to get home from my job and not fear for my life but that’s just me...
It’s so hard to just be a friendly person to men these days when this is what I get 50% of the time...
One man even said to a pregnant woman one morning "I'll let you have my seat if you give me your number"
To say the least I felt humiliated that I’d been so easily dictated. But more annoyingly about it is that although I mostly felt angry, someone else could be in that position and feel totally worthless or scared. and that’s why men need an education on this shit
I wear very distinctive glasses...
I get an awful lot of comments about my bum
I walked under some scaffolding with builders on it and one of them deadass went 'i'd love to have a go on those'
a car comes opposite me and said ‘orite sexy wanna give me your number’ of course I said ‘errr no’ he said ‘well you’re fucking ugly anyway’
What annoys me most is they say wearing minimal clothing is the issue
I feel small and powerless. I have been followed, yelled at, disrespected, harassed, cat called, you name it.
"when me and my sister once were in one after a night out a man stared me up and down and started to masturbate, in front of me, in McDonald's. I felt so dirty, I couldn't wear those clothes for months and it still only reminds me off that moment."
