being a woman sucks sometimes
as i was exiting the subway in a not so nice area of town this older black dude with white jeans and sunglasses says, "ooooh baby. you lookin fine!" as i pass.
and, like i always do when random men on the street catcall or otherwise degrade me, i ignored him.
he continues, "hey! i'm talking to you! you're not going to say thank you?"
and i keep walking. he's stopped completely
"ahh, i see! you're mute! that's good! because when i rape you, that means you won't be able to scream!"
for all those men who don't contemplate what it's like to be a woman, who have no understanding of the way that women are treated differently than men on a daily basis, remember this: you will probably live your entire life without being sexually harassed by strangers on the street. i have to listen to this shit every single day.
in other words, the "hey mama, i know you want my cock in your pussy" bit is getting quite old.
as are the little horn taps from gypsy cab drivers. and the kissy noises from the opposite side of the street. etc., ad infinitum.
