Academic Quote about Street Harassment

“Street harassment is a common occurrence in large urban areas. News articles and commentators report that street harassment is particularly frequent, intense, and sexually explicit in Washington, D.C.”

The Pitt News: Pitt students condemn catcalling

Pitt students condemn catcalling
Joanna Li | Staff Writer
February 14, 2018

As a 12-year-old, Sophia Marshall stepped out of the house feeling confident in thePA map
outfit she had picked out that morning. As she waited for a friend by the local high
school, she heard a sharp whistle from out of the window of a passing car — her
first experience with catcalling.

Marshall, now a junior business administration major at Pitt, recalled feeling conflicted at the time — a mix of validation and violation.  It wasn’t until she came to college that the instances of catcalling became more frequent for Marshall — happening on the bus, her nightly walk home in Central Oakland and during her summer abroad in Paris — causing her to feel fed up.
“I’m not your baby, I’m not your honey,” Marshall said. “You don’t know me.”
According to a Cornell study, 85 percent of women experience street harassment before age 17 — and some women in Oakland are in that majority. Walking in groups of three or more, carrying pepper spray at all times and knowing a few self-defense techniques are all tips in the back of the minds of some women who have experienced street harassment at Pitt.

Marie Skoczylas, a visiting instructor in the Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies
Program, offers a definition of catcalling and its effects.
“Catcalling is singling out a target for sexual objectification and commenting publicly on
that person’s appearance,” Skoczylas said. “It requires a sense of entitlement to pull a
stranger into that kind of situation, knowing the advance may well be unwelcome and
insulting.”

Catcalling is part of the larger issue of street harassment. According to “Stop Street
Harassment” — a nonprofit organization focusing on ending gender-based street
harassment — street harassment can range from unwanted whistling to sexual assault. As Skoczylas explains, there’s a fine line between a pleasant interaction with compliments and harassing words that are disrespectful in nature.
“Rather than taking the route of trying to criminalize behavior, I think we need to focus on a cultural shift, changing attitudes so that we see each other as individuals to be respected rather than objects to harass,” Skoczylas said.
Sophomore finance major Casey Maher experienced catcalling in Oakland one night in
August. She walked to upper campus to meet with friends to watch a movie, but a friend
made a last-minute cancellation. Maher found herself alone in an unfamiliar place.
“Some guys pulled up next to me in a car and started yelling things out the window, like,
‘hey girl, get in the car, let us give you a ride,’” Maher said. “It made me feel really
uncomfortable and I had my hand on my phone to call the police.”

Carolyn Helenski, a sophomore communication science and disorders major, has
experienced catcalling in multiple cities. She recalls an instance with her mom in
Philadelphia that was particularly memorable, saying it was very degrading.
“One time I was in Philly with my mom for the afternoon, and a young guy was with his
friends on the street,” Helenski said. “When my mom and I walked by he said, ‘look at that nice, tight pussy in those pants.’’’
In this uncomfortable position, Helenski had an urge to stand up to the man, but her mom told her to act as if nothing had happened and just continue walking.
“Catcalling isn’t pretty when someone is trying to embarrass or harass you,” Helenski said.
“I went to say something, but [my mom] told me to just keep walking — which frustrated
me because a woman I look up to more than anyone didn’t feel comfortable standing up for herself or me.”

Other women in Oakland have experienced harassment from older men, not just fellow
college students.  Close Morgan, a junior who asked her last name be omitted for privacy, was walking back from her class in the Chevron Science Center when she stumbled into one such case as she passed a few construction workers on the sidewalk.
“As I got closer to them, I noticed that the one guy was staring at me,” she said. “Right as I
walked by, the guy who had been looking at me a little too long turned his head and said
‘hey beautiful,’ and watched me as I kept walking down the street.”
Morgan said she didn’t think much of the situation — she just smiled and continued
walking down O’Hara Street to Fifth Avenue, enjoying the compliment she was given.
“What was initially nice became super creepy when I was stopped at the crosswalk by
Thackeray,” Morgan said. “The same man popped his head out of the passenger side of a
white pickup truck and said, for the second time, ‘hey beautiful’ as his buddy kept driving.”
To avoid another encounter with the man, Morgan ended up taking the longest route
possible to get to her destination — an inconvenience for her to feel safe.
While Marshall continues to take her chances striking up conversations with strangers, she said she draws the line between friendliness and street harassment at a stranger’s ability to read context clues on a situation.
“I’m not trying to say that no one should talk to anybody else,” Marshall said. “I am saying that you need to respect my privacy, and that includes no shouting, no name calling.”

Another Point to Ponder: Part III

Another Point to Ponder:  Part III

Have you noticed that among blacks, in particular ghetto, black, entitled mentality, foul-mouthed vagrant black “Christians” are the primary sociopathic bullies of other blacks? Whether in the hood, in the office, public thoroughfares or at the grocer these often photodark-skinned blacks plagued with Attachment Disorder expose their narcissism by targeting productive, talented, intelligent blacks?  One can easily dismiss any need for further analysis and just say, “I guess that’s how they were raised,” which is indeed an indicator of their social dysfunction and failure to integrate into reasonable society.  These ill-mannered, foul-mouthed black males come from certain households in which their black mamas excuse, justify and coddled them into believing this is acceptable behavior.  Regardless of the initial triggers (whether it’s nature, nurture, a combination of both or inherent evil), one can readily witness when those same blacks see their targets become successful they are the first ones to bemoan on various social media platforms how successful blacks “never did nuffin’ for blacks” or “don’t help black people out”?

 

Where do these reverse-logic negroes derive such audacity to be awarded for negative, criminal behavior that they directed to members of their own people.  Regardless of your personal beliefs or observations of their lifestyles, the primary focus is to analyze their experiences with blacks (their own people) and how it caused them to separate from them in a sense.  Let’s take a look at couple of examples:

 

Oprah Winfrey:  She started off as a journalist, became a talk show host (The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show: The Next Chapter) and now a media mogul (O Magazine, Harpo Studios, OWN network).  She stated that early in her career that in Baltimore, they did not treat her right.  That’s no surprise where certain dysfunctional mentalities are considered normal by those who possess them.  As a child, she was abused by black “Christian” members of her family.  Surprise, surprise, ghetto black “Christians” mistreating members of their own race.  These same types are inexplicably beleaguered when she becomes a founder of a school for the development of African children in desolate areas to the dismay of those same entitled blacks who demanded that she invest in Baltimore City Schools—the same city of blacks where she was mistreated.  One can estimate that as a child in the South, she was likely  teased about her appearance by other blacks—yet these same kinds of blacks believe their superficial commonality on a color spectrum dictates that she owes them something despite their years of abuse towards her. NEXT.

Will Smith:  He is known from being from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and from a tough neighborhood. He began his entertainment career as a rapper with DJ Jazzy Jeff.  Then he pursued  an acting career and became the lead actor on the television program ‘The Fresh Prince of Belair.’   Thereafter, he progressed to become an in demand Hollywood actor. Despite his circumstances and at the urging of his mother, he tried to focus on his lessons. He said that black boys (ghetto black “Christians”) bullied him for studying and would knock books out of his hands when he walked to and from school as well as beat him up.  It reminds me of the comedian Chris Rock’s joke with the overarching topic of N*#@!# vs. Black People in which he assailed disruptive, inner city, entitled, destructive blacks who declared “Don’t come to me with that readin’ and writin’ s#@!….countin’ these rocks b@yaatch.”  He is now successful, and the hood rats have gotten the hint that he would never associate with them or their types.

…and even when a black person decides despite their upbringing and abuse by members of their own people, to “give back” to his “community” he realizes that it was a waste of money and a bad investment to redeem neighborhoods plagued with the ghetto black pagan “Christian” mentality of entitlement and self-destruction.  Let’s review the example of ex-NBA basketball player Derrick Coleman whose investment into these types of communities heavily contributed to him filing personal bankruptcy:

https://blogs.wsj.com/bankruptcy/2010/04/09/ex-nba-star-derrick-coleman-files-for-bankruptcy/

Derrick Coleman made $87 million, now files bankruptcy

But wait, there’s more.  These ghetto black pagan “Christian” vagabonds will verbally abuse, yell expletives towards female strangers, Sunni Muslim women of their own race, disrespect their elders and street harass, assault, rape and verbally abuse black women in general; then exhibit no qualms in playing the ‘black man is victim’ card and demand all blacks and broader society support them. Pretty pathetic isn’t it?  Yet, this core group of nonsensical blacks cannot comprehend when decent members of their race and the broader society does not want to deal with their nonsense and foolishness.

It’s called having standards.  Theirs are apparently nearly non-existent.

lightbulbPerhaps we all need to re-read ‘The MisEducation of the Negro’ by Carter G. Woodson, in it the author historian explains that as blacks strive to improve their own circumstances, attain higher levels of understanding, as well as those who are already inclined to clean living, a natural rift expands, culturally and spiritually between decent blacks and those who seek to destroy the former –the crabs in the barrel mentality. Some refer to it as the separation of the chaff from the wheat, the productive useful portion of the population (at least in theory barring external factors such as the economy and institutionalized discrimination) become elevated on different levels, while those bitter, entitled criminals and black devils stay in the same position that their sick mentality bore them.  They cannot and will not be successful because of their own conduct, yet will demand those who attain such levels to feed their entitlement that they were reared in via welfare, black pagan “Christian”, entitlement because I exist, “all I know is,” don’t take personal responsibility for their actions and black male privilege, coddled, mindset.

Decent black and broader society must remain steadfast and on guard for because the  will attempt to devour members of their own community first.  Just think of the 1980’s movie ‘The Blob’ and how it seeps to engulf any crevice of structure and remnants of civilized society until it destroys everyone in their path including themselves.  Now that is something to ponder.

Men in France could be fined €90 for harassing women in the street

Anytime a country has to legislate basic manners and civility, it is an indication that the country becoming a third world-esque nation.  Maryland is already considering street harassment laws, while it is rumored that Los Angeles, California has already passed ordinances in which street harassers will receive citations. Yet France, on a national level decided to officially tackle the pervasive issue of sexual/street harassment.  At least one western nation is taking a stand. America, leader of the free world, what will you do?:

Men in France could be fined €90 for harassing women in the street                                      Thursday 25 January 2018 12:25 GMT

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/france-fine-men-harassment-women-street-a8177296.html

Men in France could face fines of €90 (£78) for making lewd comments about women in public, under new plans to tackle street harassment.

A government report recommends enforcing the fine for behaviour that infringes on “the freedom of movement of women in public spaces and undermines self-esteem and the right to security”.

The plans come from a parliamentary working group on street harassment launched by gender equality minister Marlene Schiappa.

A longtime ally of President Emmanuel Macron, Ms Schiappa said in September that new measures were needed to address the “grey zone between consented seduction and sexual aggression”.

Men who make loud and lewd comments about women, follow them or block their path could be fined, according to measures suggested in the report.

The parliamentary group suggested imposing a €90 fine on those who pay immediately, increasing to €200 (£174) if it is paid within 15 days and €350 (£304) if the payment is later than that.

It did not recommend impose fines for wolf-whistling, according to French daily Le Croix, contrary to earlier reports.

The report is set to be presented to Ms Schiappa next week, along with France’s Minister of Justice Nicole Belloubet and Minister of the Interior, Gerard Collomb. The ministers will then put a bill on sexism and sexual violence to parliament.

Mr Macron has said tacking street harassment will be a priority for his government and in November said  ”women in the republic cannot be afraid to go out” .
