Athena Brown >> No person has a right to impose their sexuality on another person without that person’s permission whether it is public or private.
^^^ Right, but whistling is no more imposing upon you as your tits hanging out are imposing upon them.
>> Catcalling is imposing their desires on non-consenting passers-by. No, that is not acceptable behavior out here in the world of people with consideration for others.
^^^ Well, the way you dress is imposing your sexuality on me. So I suggest you cover up.
>> Catcalling IS abuse for me.
^^^ “For me” is the key term here. Saying “hello” and “god bless you” has been cited by 3rd Wave agencies like Hollaback as a form of catcalling. Making sounds with your mouth like “psst” has also been cited, and is put in the same category as “public masturbation” for no other reason than a woman *MIGHT* feel abused by someone going “psst”.
For me, the way your dressed is imposing your sexuality on me. How is that not just as offensive?
It’s not of course because women have the right to express themselves, while men don’t, because when they do it you’ll say it’s “imposing” (unless you like the guy – then it’s suddenly stops being catcalling).
>> It triggers the sexual assault my grandfather perpetrated on me. In fact it is remarkably similar to that assault.
^^^ As a mental health worker, I would suggest that you seek therapy for your triggers and previous abuse, rather than expect the entire world to stop doing the thing that triggers you. Saying “hello” may just as well trigger a person, and it honestly would not surprise me at all at this point if someone launched a social justice campaign to stop people (read: men) from saying “hello” because it might trigger someone.
>> Women are attracted to considerate, mature, and emotionally responsible men
^^^ Oh, so *THATS* why the prettiest girl in school is always dating the nerd with the taped glasses who makes good grades – and not the bad boy on the motorcycle.
>> Any woman who is imposing her sexual attractions on another person without their consent is absolutely being disgusting and needs to face the consequences of that action.
^^^ Alright ladies! You heard her. No more hitting on dudes, that’s off limits from now on.
It’s not like any straight men out there actually *WANT* you imposing yourself on them. I mean just imagine the horror they must feel! A woman in a skin tight t-shirt walking up to them out of nowhere… telling them they’re hot??? Do you think men WANT that??? You think they WANT hot attractive women winking at them and asking for their numbers???
>> Do you HONESTLY believe women say: “Oh, how attractive — you’re whistling at me and you don’t even know me. We should date.”
^^^ Take a look for yourself:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPf1-lFn0Us <— now, imagine if a guy did this. We’d have nothing but horrible things to say.
But when a woman does it, it’s totally fine.
If I were attracted to men, and a good looking man standing next to an Aston Martin whistled at me and asked me to come over and talk to him, why on earth would I not?
>> And your name is in quotes because I don’t actually believe it is “Athena” nor do I actually believe you’re a woman.
^^^ See pic.
Now, prove to us that your real name is Rebecca, and that you’re not actually a man in a dress.
