What I don’t understand is what the fuck has happened to the US Government? We send troops to other fucking countries to help with this kind of crap and we can’t do anything about it in our own home?! WHY the fuck hasn’t some form of the Federal Government stepped in and ousted the local police force? Didn’t I read somewhere that the governor of the state said that was going to happen? It is absolutely unacceptable that in 2014 our government has allowed this to go on as long as it has. We help others, why can’t we help ourselves?
Ways you can help:
writer brain is like the most inconvenient thing ever. Like you’ll just be settlin’ down to go to sleep, gettin comfy, when all of a sudden you’re brain decides that now is the perfect time to think of the greatest story of all time!!!
This is an almost nightly affliction for me. There is no cure or help for it. If you don’t get at least the idea out of your head you will have impossibly bizarre dreams and wake up with a headache. Best to just keep a voice recorder by the bed and have a giant pot of coffee in the morning while trying not to nod off in morning traffic.
In San Francisco last year, a man stabbed a woman in the face and arm after she didn’t respond positively to his sexually harassing her on the street.
In Bradenton, Fla., a man shot a high school senior to death after she and her friends refused to perform oral sex at his request.
In Chicago, a scared 15-year-old was hit by a car and died after she tried escaping from harassers on a bus.
Again, in Chicago, a man grabbed a 19-year-old walking on a public thoroughfare, pulled her onto a gangway and assaulted her.
In Savannah, Georgia, a woman was walking alone at night and three men approached her. She ignored them, but they pushed her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.
In Manhattan, a 29-year-old pregnant woman was killed when men catcalling from a van drove onto the sidewalk and hit her and her friend.
Last week, a runner in California — a woman — was stopped and asked, by a strange man in a car, if she wanted a ride. When she declined he ran her over twice.
FUCK YOU if you think that street harassment is a “compliment” or “no big deal” or that it’s “irrational” of us to be afraid because “what’s actually gonna happen.” Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you some more.
