The New York Post "article" on how catcalls from strangers on the street are actually flattering was infuriating and disappointing on many levels. Salon.com put it very well, saying the "pro-catcalling piece furthers the narrative that females intentionally dress and walk in a manner to invite sexual attention, and that therefore whatever happens next, even if it’s assault, is pretty much their own doing."
I have my own experience with sexual assault on the sidewalk, as well as victim blaming - which I share in the article below - as do far too many people I know. Let's work to change this attitude of entitlement and objectification, as so many amazing people already are doing.
