“Maybe something about the way you dress is triggering them”

I can’t believe some people are still blaming women for street harassment. I just read this on a forum:

“In my experience, cat calls have almost disappeared. I’m not only speaking of me – I don’t even see them directed at other women. Therefore, I have to hesitantly say that maybe something about the way you dress is triggering them.”

From another woman, shamefully enough.

    Maybe someone should join that forum & post a link to this website so she can see there’s a mountain of evidence against her?

    (but of course some people refuse to be educated about these things no matter what you tell them)

    It sounds like this person may be living alone in a cave on some other planet or maybe even in some kind of science fiction type time warp.
    That’s the only way I can make any sense of the comment.

    Well I can’t believe that considering just TONIGHT I was wolf whistled at while wearing a Uni hoody and jeans. Across the street. Luckily I had already chosen to cross the street to avoid the man but I shouldn’t have to.
