Hey Catcalling Guy and Guy Defending Catcalling Guy:

You’re wrong.

Your behavior when you see a strange female walk by you on the street isn’t appropriate.

It isn’t complimentary.
It isn’t cute.

It isn’t classy.
It isn’t decent.
It isn’t flattering.
It isn’t the right thing to do.

You want to know why it isn’t any of those things?

Women are telling you it isn’t, that’s why.

Regardless of the intent, or the rationale, or the spin, or whatever twisted justification you want to make about your actions, the actual recipients of these misguided advances are letting you know that it’s frightening.

They’re telling you that it’s intimidating, that it disrupts their lives, that it makes them fear for their safety, that it makes them self-conscious, and in general, that it damages them.

They’re letting you know that the net effect of the remarks you make isn’t attractive; it’s creepy.

1 in 5 girls are raped.

It’s not easy being a girl aged 18-25 in America’s culture today.

1 in 5 of us will be raped. I did some research into some popular websites visited by most people ages 18-30 on a daily basis and saw what messages we’re giving the public about women.

 

disturbing

Our culture believes anyone can casually do whatever they want to women and it’s socially acceptable with no repercussions.

wtf

ridiculous

notokaynever

All of the above videos are just four out of the countless videos I found from a simple YouTube video search of “pranks.”

These are all saying that it’s okay to make fun of women’s bodies in a sexual way.

Next time you see disturbing content about women, which you will… say something! Comment something. E-mail the owner of the website.

The f*** her right in the p**** videos. Where a man at some point says “F her right in the p!”

1 in 5 girls are raped.

This is a NEW epidemic.

GIRLS!

Comment on disturbing content. E-mail the owners. We can stop this from being normalized. We can help other girls and ourselves.

MEN!

Don’t laugh along. You are human too, and you have a heart. Help a sista out.

1 in 5 girls will be raped, and if you’re not okay with it like I’m not…then tell somebody. Spread the word.

WE THE PEOPLE: Give Us Internet Privacy!

What does America really need right now? As much as everybody has an opinion on topics such as abortion, gay marriage, and the legalization of marijuana, there’s something we desperately need as a society right now that’s long overdue that’s not as exciting to talk about.

We desperately need online privacy laws.

We need to vote for people who will create online privacy laws.

There have been countless problems leading from a lack of internet privacy.

I’m tired of my life seeming public to all of my acquaintances and people in my community, whether I like them or not. Though Facebook will continue to ensure us that the privacy is in our hands, it’s not. We need somebody to lay down the law and stop all of the cyber stalking and grant us our basic human right known as privacy.

Please, give American citizens internet privacy!
