Defying belief.: protip for men:
don’t say “cute” at a woman walking in in her neighborhood at 1:00 in the morning.
- it’s creepy as fuck
- it’s disrespectful
- I will punch you in the face
Simply because I am walking on a street does not mean that I want, deserve, or demand comments on…
I’ll deconstruct just
three things, because this human being is just Not Getting It.I agree that your body is not public property, but
That’s big of you. Really. You’re a big person for agreeing to that very basic tenet! Good on you. Also, do you know what? (x
) I’m pretty sure that’s true in this case, too.…in commenting on your appearance he was in no way violating your self-ownership. I can remark on the sky? Does that imply that I own the sky? Of course not. I can comment on a car. Should my comment be interpreted as staking claim to the car? Also, no. Commenting on the aesthetic of something is not an ownership claim, and I see no reason why people would be exempt from that rule of thumb.
So, women are like cars, or like the sky. Things. That you feel you can comment on.
To their faces. You know, the sky doesn’t have a face. Cars don’t have faces. People have faces, though. And I would never, ever, ever tell some random woman “~cute” to her face at 1am. It’s obviously a douche-move that carries behind it all the power and implications of rape culture.
Icing on the cake, though? This:but your comedic overreaction to the situation makes you entirely unsympathetic.
oh, tone arguments
