Cosmopolitan: No matter where you live, if you’ve ever walked around your neighborhood as a woman (or queer person) for any lengthy amount of time, you’ve been subjected to catcalls, whistles, stares, you name it.
Still, there are plenty of idiots out there who claim it’s no big deal, or that it’s not that bad, or that women are exaggerating. Obviously, those people are wrong, but sometimes it helps to show naysayers actual, real-world evidence of how pervasive street harassment is in our culture, which this video absolutely does.
It’s fairly excruciating to watch, but that’s only because it’s so realistic and all too familiar.
The “disturbing harassment”? “How you doing today?” “What’s up beautiful have a good day.” “God bless you mami.” “Hey baby.” “Hey beautiful!” “How are you this morning?” “Have a nice evening.” “Nice!”
Don’t like the cat calls or comments? Ignore them or tell the boys to blow off! You really think you can control the behavior of everyone on the street?
Bet a feminazi would demand the same respect even if she walked around like this.
