I have never run to get out of the line of fire faster than when a white dude put his hands palms-together and greeted my coworker/friend in Japanese. She is half-Chinese, and we worked in a Korean-owned cafe. Like there is no way he could have fucked that up more.

A Woman Wore A Hidden Camera To Show How Many Times In A Day She Gets Harassed.
Jen Corey was crowned Miss DC in 2009 and made it to the top 10 of the Miss America Pageant in 2010. A tall and striking blonde, Jen has battled with overzealous men approaching her since she was a teenager. An incident at a D.C. bar prompted her to use her platform as a beauty queen to speak out against street harassment, a topic that is often dismissed as just ‘boys being boys.’ But Jen and other women argue that there is something more sinister that lies beneath the motivation to aggressively cat-call or approach women in public places: “Street harassment is almost never about sex. It’s about power. Which is the same way we view rape. So saying street harassment is not a big deal is opening up the doorway for men to view women as an object to be obtained.”
