Right. We need to talk.
You, man, listen up. Sexual harassment- so not cool.
Blank Noise is a hands-on socially aware group that seeks to weed out eve-teasing. And today they invite us lowly bloggers to post our (scathing) thoughts on the matter.
For the uninitiated, eve-teasing is the word used in the Indian subcontinent for lewd cat-calling, leering for what-seems-like-decades, sexually innappropriate gestures and in some cases even molestation.
What have I ever done to retort? Nothing. I’ve silently tolerated whatever filth the roadside romeos have to say out loud. Sometimes, I’ve mustered up the courage to say No when offered money for sex. But that’s not gonna stop these fuckers from taking their heads out of their asses.
Eve-teasing is dispiccable, disgusting and completely unneccessary. What kind of degenerate society are we living in? And don’t you dare me give me that “Oh she was skimpily dressed, she was asking for it” crap. That’s degenerate thinking, shame on you. Skimpy clothing is NOT an invitation to treat. These men are social scum and they needed to be bitchslapped everytime their tongues go a-wagging.
And you’ve all done it. You’ve all leered endlessly in the train or passed comments or pinched a butt here or grabbed a boob there. Well, you’re all disgusting.
So there. If you’ve ever sexually harassed someone, even if it was just by words, I hope you fall face first into a pile of fresh dung. And then get run over by a very very slow road roller.
Fuck off, I say.
