When?? When would women actually rest?! We are literally FED UP, every single lady, we are fed up of always trying to explain ourselves because one misogynist has decided to come up with the most ridiculous conception about ladies, we are fed up of going places and feeling we would rather be invisible, we are fed up of men thinking they have the rights to touch on our bodies, because what? We are fragile? We are fed up with being uncomfortable! because the opposite gender exists. Can we actually rest???
Today has me generally triggered by how irritating it feels personally, to constantly get uncomfortable in public because I’m deeply conscious of not having any provoking dialogue with some “men”, irritably get hit on or worse get provokingly touched by some random men.
I was out today to pick up something from a friend, which in a different light gave me a big confirmation that waiting for people by the road has to be one of my biggest pet peeves. Which in a weird way (maybe its not even weird at all) still ties to the fact that I don’t want to be in a position where I’m not in control of and some irritants of men act out as usual.
I’m at my meet up spot now, impatiently waiting for my friend by the pedestrian walkway which is along a bent road, which therefore means that vehicles had to slow down, a bit to do a rightful turning. I had only stood at this walkway for about 10 minutes and I could swear I had been harassed about 5 times in just 10 minutes! I had been whistled at from cars passing by, commentaries on my body and ass, being touched for no reason because in his words “you are waiting for me abi?” “Fine girl give me your number” Which always baffles me and I’m still trying to clock this (which I probably wouldn’t ever because, insanity) is that these dumbshits get angry when you ignore them, which is another nuisance on its own. I stood by that walkway for about 20 mins and a bit over, imagine how bad the harassments got.
We are TIRED! All through the time I stood there I was looking out for any safe corner, I could stay, but, it’s there really a “safe corner” though? It gets frustrating but more so tiring to always feel at a place of unease, like can we rest?!
This foolishness right here was the last straw for me today and I just aggressively started punching my keyboard.
“Panty Lines are sincerely seductive” This statement has bugged me ever since I read it. Mans even said ‘sincerely’ like somebody make it make sense! If it bothers you may be a better solution is NOT to size up our bums, talking about “ladies take it into consideration”. He even had the effrontery to add a hashtag, The actual Ghetto!
At this junction, my head is just rumbled up with improper words mixed with confusion and sadness to be fair.
I don’t know when this lunacy will end, but I know for a fact that women carry the most inspiring strengths and each day we continue to tackle this as much as we can and just hit as many morons as possible with the train of this “movement” so to speak.
