#WalkingWhileFemale **HOF thread**

A friend of mine shared this experience on Facebook:

Random guy on city sidewalk: "Hey, I like your body!"
Me: *steady glare at him*
Guy: "Hey fuck you, that's a compliment you bitch!"


One of my friend's comments:

I would like to add that this kind of thing happens to me 3-5 times a week, depending on how often I go outside. I've been keeping it to myself up until now, but decided recently to start posting these interactions to show what it is like to walk while female. Please share your own experiences as well!! Awareness leads to action


Pretty universal experience among women, particularly young women.

Speak out, speak up, and call it out. This kind of behavior toward women is unacceptable. And it's not just because women are women, it's because women are human beings, deserving of respect. No one is entitled to any one else's body.

2. It is unacceptable

And maddening. Geez, it happened to me regularly in my younger, girl in the city days. I still remember how lousy it made me feel.

Why do we have to keep going over this sh&$ again and again?
