No longer immune

I’ve been fairly insulated from street harassment for the past few years because of a few factors. For one, I’ve been living in a very small university/government town, which I think helps. Two, I was quite overweight for a long time. In the past few months, I’ve lost 25 lbs, about half of what I’ve gained over the years. Clearly it has made a difference. I was standing outside a coffee shop, on the phone with my mom when some guy drove by in his car. He stuck his head and hand out of the window and shouted something at me. I wasn’t really paying attention and he had a green light so he couldn’t stop. Before I found this site, it might not have made an impression on me. I guess now begins my time as a victim. That makes me feel just super about losing weight.

  1. You /should/ feel great about losing the weight. Don’t let the catcallers turn you off of becoming healthier.
