if I turned around and a small army of cats was behind me do u kno how elated I would be
Okay, this is actually what you do if you’re being sexually harassed in any kind of public space. Draw attention to it, preferably pull away and let EVERYONE know that someone is touching you. This will not only get him to get off you but he’ll definitely think about this situation next time he wants to do something like this.
Spreading the word.
My mom and I were talking about this today after hearing about a woman who was molested on a plane who said nothing until she was picked up at the airport by her parents. My mom looked at me and asked what I would do in that situation and I looked her dead in the eye and I told her “it would take me .02 seconds to realize what was going on and yell angrily, and then I would be straight on to bitch slapping him so hard he wouldn’t be able to see the punch I’d throw with the opposite hand”.
She nodded and accepted my salty language like a seasoned sailor.
I’ve had experience with this before, in Prague a group of five girls and I were followed by three men at night. After a while they started yelling at us, the most common being “how much?” Meaning how much we “cost” as prostitutes. Seeing as they weren’t going to stop, I turned on my heel, faced them (which surprised them), spat at their feet and responded with “You couldn’t afford me.” This prompted the other girls to start yelling back at them as well, starting with our spitfire Czech friend to start slinging curses in Czech as she and the rest of the girls came up beside me. Needless to say the men backed off and pretty much fled. They weren’t expecting a fight. It empowered me and encouraged the rest of the girls to yell back too.
I’ve heard that a lot of people don’t know what to do in this situation because they’ve been taught all their lives to be polite and non-aggressive. Keep your heads down or whatever.
Keep in mind that studies have shown that rapists look for victims who won’t fight back.
Remember that nobody has the right to touch you without your consent or harass you, and you have all the right to make the biggest fuss about it that you can possibly make.
Get angry. Be in command.
LOOK AT THIS BABY
LOOK AT HER
Frozen + I bet you thought that was gonna be about a boy.
See I think this is exactly why people throw out that hyperbole that Frozen is “the first Disney movie that’s about family” or “the first Disney movie that isn’t about a guy.” Because of course every Disney fan knows that isn’t true. There’s some great Disney movies about family (like Lilo and Stitch for example). But here’s the thing - Frozen is the first movie that continually makes you think that it was going to be about a guy and then just goes HAHA NOPE. And that’s why I think some people jump to say it was the ‘first movie about family’ because it tricked them into thinking it was going to be a completely different movie.
My favorite thing about Frozen is that the plot is literally just two sisters learning to understand each other’s perspective and then a little bit of Disney redefining its message about what kinds of relationships we should strive for.
this one wins
