One afternoon in early August, I was waiting at the bus stop near the local library. I’m always cautious when I go to this part of the city as this is where I always face the most extreme sexual harassment. On this day, I was minding my own businesses, listening to some music while waiting for the bus. At some point, a guy very clearly strung out on drugs came up to me, put his arm around me, and started whispering all the dirty things he wanted to do to me in my ear. Now, I’m a very petite girl, so when it comes to situations like this, I have to be very careful about how I act/react because I know I could easily be hurt. So I stood there, while he kept going. There were plenty of people at this bus stop, meaning that there were multiple witnesses to what was going on. The man tried to pull me closer, at which point I jumped out of his grasp and tried to move a little ways away. Of course he followed me, but quickly became distracted by another girl (who he tried to mug). Like I said, I’m sexually harassed often, but I have never felt as threatened and disgusting as I did that day.

This man, who was touching me and telling me what he was going to do to me, saw me only as an object for his entertainment. In his eyes, I was not a human being. He didn’t want a real relationship with me, he wanted to exert his “power” as a man and use me for his own pleasure. And that’s what every man who catcalls, who sexually harasses, is doing.

There are a lot of people that think catcalling and street harassment are harmless, but try putting yourself in my position, or the millions of other women that face this kind of behavior every single day. Street harassment isn’t flattering. It’s not a compliment. In fact, it’s exhausting. It’s both demoralizing and humiliating, and makes women feel completely powerless over their own bodies.

Why is Jennifer Aniston naked for an advert selling water? Does advertising need to resort to using women as sex objects to sell WATER?!

really tho straight guys will go on and on about how uncomfortable it makes them when gay guys hit on them but lets be fucking honest how many times have u seen a guy continue to hit on another guy after hes visibly uncomfortable vs. how many times a straight guy has continued to hit on a girl after shes visibly uncomfortable 

This needs more notes
