Street harassment may seem unassuming, but It can escalate towards rape and murder if a perpetrator feels threatened or humiliated by their victim. Sometimes their victims haven't even done anything to trigger them, yet they still act out in unsettling ways.
Is it wrong that I sort of wish that ONE man would catcall me when I walked down the street? That was my initial reaction to the Catcall Woman Video that went viral last week. I felt dirty even thinking that out loud.
How does one go about defending a statement that someone else has identified as harassment? How does a man read about women feeling threatened by certain comments and then want to defend the people who made them just because they also happen to have a penis?
