This is an article worthy of the NY Post, apparently. (Article)
If you REALLY need to see the article, it’s right up there, but I’d recommend not giving them the pagehits if you can avoid it. That would just give them more reason to write articles like this.
This is the gist: “I like getting catcalled, and actively seek out that kind of attention. Don’t judge me!”
And she shouldn’t be judged for liking attention and being upfront about it, that’s her prerogative. Let’s be real, most people like to get attention in some form or another. But she’s saying that because she enjoys being catcalled, every other woman in the world who doesn’t like it should just shut up and take it. That’s kinda messed up. More than “kinda,” in fact.
To be clear; I’m not a woman. I’m a straight white dude, basically a supervillain on some parts of Tumblr. However, it’s still important to me that people get treated with a base amount of respect, and that means treating people in a way they’re comfortable being treated. Becoming an object for men to hoot and holler at is something many women have been outspoken about not enjoying. In fact, it makes many women feel unsafe. Telling them to “deal with it” is wrong.
Any ladies wanna chime in on how they feel about this?
(P.S. Please avoid any Tumblr-isms like wishing death or worse on the author.)
