Hey sugar

I was yelled at from the street, asked if I wanted a ride, called pet names like “doll” and “gorgeous.” I was wearing a loose tshirt and jeans, with my hair up and no makeup. Ladies, it’s not about what you’re wearing. Pervs will be pervs.

This afternoon, I was biking. A guy followed me on his bike yelling things at me, until thankfully i lost him or he gave up. I ignored him. I was scared of what he could do.

Another time a man asked me if I wanted a walk to my car, and tried to give me his number so I could ‘visit’ him sometime. The man was in his 50s. I am 18.

How come being a woman is somehow equivalent to “wants to be harassed/cant say no/open for sex” in a creep’s mind.

This needs to stop. Now.

    For this game to be strikingly realistic, if the player responds to a crude street proposition with a frank “OK, let’s go, put up or shut up,” then the catcaller should get scared and run away. These dudes are like the proverbial car-chasing dog, if they ever caught one they wouldn’t have a clue what to do next.
