This is to all the men…
This has been said before but it needs to be said again. For the guys who fail to understand. This is to each and every one of you, I just have one message: STOP CATCALLING!
It is not a compliment when we walk down the street and all we can feel is people gawking at us. It is uncomfortable and makes us feel unsafe. It is not attractive to shout things at us when a girl walks past you, we don’t feel flattered when you whistle at us or honk your horn, it makes my skin crawl and most women feel unsafe. As women, we deserve respect and the right to feel safe as we walk down the street.
Have you ever thought about the fact that someone could do that to your mother, sister or daughter? It is disrespectful to all of the woman kind. We are people who have so much to offer and when men on the street think it’s okay to just use these dirty techniques on us it makes us angry and annoyed. Women have battled against so much to get to the stage they are at today. But, even now we have to deal with this kind of harassment on a daily basis so you can look good in front of your friends.
I know people will say, that women should wear less makeup or dress less provocatively. Well, guess what? I have walked out of my house wearing no makeup and completed covered up but men have still stared and whistled and made dirty jokes. So it’s not me, it’s them!
Stop telling women to start dressing differently and teach men to respect women!
If you find someone attractive the best way to treat them is to show respect rather than make them feel unsafe. Think before you act!
