Street Harassment?

Image source: http://www.teamawot.com/

Hey Young Loves.  So if you are following the latest viral news, there has been a lot of buzz about a recent “street harassment video.”  The actress in the video was taped walking the streets of NYC for 10 hours, all in the sake of research.  (She’s a trooper I swear because uhm, nope)  The group “Hollaback!” posted the video in hopes of depicting street harassment against women in NYC.  Of course the video garnered split opinions.  Surprisingly, the views seemed to be split amongst men and women on both sides.  Some men where disgusted by the harassment she received, while some women didn’t perceive it as a big deal.

In my opinion the video made its point.  I see where she was coming from and what the group was trying to prove.  But of course I feel it was a bit lacking. Because these NYC streets for real, for real are full of WOLVES.  I even made a post about it this past summer.  Ok so at one point a guy does follow her down the street for 5 minutes.  That was pretty damn creepy.  However, I want to add that this is not all to what street harassment is for those who didn’t see what the big deal was. 

Some guys can be so freaking disgusting.  Some of things that come out of their mouth is extremely sexual and extremely insulting.  Oh and let you not want to talk to them oh my God you become every type of “b!tch” “ho” or my favorite “you not all that cute anyway, you ugly anyway wicho black a$$.”  Yeah.

Also, I saw some people commenting that she wasn’t even that attractive.  Honestly I think she look fine, but that’s not the point.  The point is you don’t have to be “attractive” to get harassed on the street.  You just have to be a female and have two legs and two arms…if even that.  You can be any shape, any size, any color, and any creed.  I’ve seen women get street harassed while walking their daughter to the bus stop.  Like come on really??

Anyway this is as much as I have time to write for now.  Check out the video and tell me what you think in the comment section.



As always thank you for reading
