A brief message for the men

9 Sep

Rant ahead:

Ok, I am not sure what it is with my moms neighborhood. It is supposed to be more middle class then where I lived before (which was very poor). I am facing way more harrassment here however and its not for being trans its for being a woman. Today I had about my 5th situation with guys passing me on the street and slowing down to make sexually harrassing comments. At least this morning it wasn’t at night and they werent drunk.

Guys who do this – its way beyond not funny. If you want to terrify a woman this is a really good way. You wonder why woman are uncomfortable around men? Why we are careful when and where we walk? It is guys like you combined with very real threats out there.

Stop it. Now. Learn to be a human being.

    There are many men that could stand to read this post. It’s a horrifying experience to be subject to the implicit violation of any form of sexual harassment . Yes, gentleman you are violating a woman’s sense of safety ,her sense of well being , with every leer and comment about what you would like to do with her ,or any unwanted touch.

    Those guys are assholes to a degree that is difficult for me to comprehend. You have my entire sympathies. I really can’t think what else to contribute here.

    Unfortuantely this is the world we live in. and the sad thing is men know that they can get away with it and be successful. Because for every 99 girls that ignore that cat call or howling comeing from the car driving by, there will be that one girl who stops for their attention.
