I have a cat, as I am sure everyone is aware. He is absolutely fantastic and he can do no wrong. What I don't like are cat calls.
Why do cat calls need to vanish as quickly as Daniel Powter after his one hit wonder? BECAUSE THEY ARE OBNOXIOUS AND COME OFF TO THOSE WHO ARE BEING HOLLARD AT AS BEING A PIECE OF PROPERTY AND NOT AS AN ACTUAL HUMAN BEING.
Ok let me tone it back down. Cat calls are never a way of flattery. Cat calls do not discriminate, you can be hollard at as a male, female, trans, whatever floats your boat, alien. You know.
Who on earth thinks they will pick up someone with some sleazy terminology being thrown around along the sidewalk like trash... or as movies like to depict cat calls coming from cars etc.
Cat calls are just the shallow end to the deep deep pool of rape culture. First it starts by being yelled at by a stranger from just walking by them minding your own business to being followed, stalked, attacked and then blamed because you were wearing something that "eluded" to wanting to have been treated that way. WRONG. My clothes do not determine my consent. Also, flirting is human nature, i get it. But NO MEANS NO. Swallow your pride back away and call it a day.
As I rant on I know some may say... well that escalated quickly. But I rant and I escalate because this is the truth of the matter. Victims are made to feel as if they were in the wrong and that is not ok. We cannot stand idly by while this seems to be the norm of society. Stay constant-vigilant, speak up and fight like hell. It is our human right to feel comfortable in our own skin and for no one to take advantage of that.
