I shouldn’t have to feel like the boy who cried wolf or feel I should just let it go when someone goes out of there way to dehumanize me on street. And I shouldn’t feel guilty or bad about using strong language, because that’s what is necessary.
Being verbally harassed by a group of men, each of whom were old enough to be my father makes me angry. The fact that the solution to this problem is changing the route I take when walking to my favorite lunch spot makes me angry. The reality that the thought of changing a culture seems so far away and lost to react differently makes me angry.
How, in this day and age can it still be okay to make sport out of making women feel violated? People say that they can’t wait for 10 years down the line when we look back on how silly gay marriage rights were every fought - they way we look at racial segregation. Women’s Suffrage has been a plight that’s been “officially recognized” as one for over 100 years. I don’t want to make this about a who’s cause is more important than the other’s, because they are in no way mutually exclusive… but it just shows how much farther we still have to go.
From state legislature, to Ferguson, to me walking to 36th and 6th, world, stop letting me lose faith in you.

A companion looking to share the following Sunday ritual: A good morning sweat, Kale green power smoothie from Terri down the street, two soft boiled eggs, and laying on the pier sketching, writing, or sleeping (obviously this includes snacks). Followed by dinner, quality cuddle time, maybe some red wine, and reading a good book.
If interested please inquire above.
