 I found this on a Tumblr and it sums up concisely what women deal with far too often.


They say I have a sweet ass, nice tits, a real pretty dress. They say I’m their future wife, or I’d look good with their dick in my mouth. They try (and probably succeed at times) to take pictures down my shirt. They ask if they can get my number, they ask where I live, why I’m not smiling, why my boyfriend lets me walk around by myself. Then they ask why I’m such a bitch, if my pussy is made of ice. They say that they never do this, as though I’ve somehow driven them to inappropriate behavior and deserve it. They say they’re just having fun, trying to pay me a compliment. Pretty frequently they get mean, slipping into a loud tourettes-like chant of bitch-whore-cunt-slut.
Before you try to tell me that it’s because I take my clothes off for a living, let me tell you that this started way before I was 18. Let me tell you that every single woman I know has at least one truly terrifying story of street harassment and a whole bunch of other stories that are merely insulting or annoying. Let me remind you that in a room of pornography fans, who have actually seen me with a dick in my mouth and who can buy a replica of my vagina in a can or box, I am treated with far more respect than I am walking down the street.

That surely doesn't speak well of the general (male) public relative to porn fans, does it? Perhaps we'd all be better off if all men were jailed, save those that can demonstrate a real appreciation for porn. Just a thought.

Well the willingness and the fact of the transaction actually demotes some level of respect. The rest are just asking for 'freebies' I guess. But I've heard of the sentiment before, and it's not unfamiliar to me.

But it's gotten way out of hand on every angle too. You can't flirt, tease or come on to a co-worker w/o fear of being fired, and/or sanctioned, very quickly too. And for heavens sake, yes, there IS a difference between 'sexual assault' and 'sexual harassment'. If Mr. creepy pats your can going to lunch, it's SH. If he like actually assaults you to try and Do something? That may be a SA. But it can get very confusing.

And of course almost all males willing and able to be honest like or appreciate Some sort of p0rn. It's just finding the one they're keyed in on that's the issue I guess! Cheers, 'VJ'
