INDYLIFE:  Catcalls of NYC: The project raising awareness of street harassment:                              Tuesday 5 December 2017 10:45 GMT

 

A young American woman is shining a spotlight on street harassment with her project, Catcalls of NYC.

21-year-old Sophie Sandberg asks her Instagram followers to send in messages about their experiences being sexually harassed on the street, detailing the exact location it took place and what was said.

Sandberg then goes to the spot in question, writes the catcall on the street in bright chalk, takes a picture and posts it on Instagram.

“Jesus Christ, nice tits. I wish I could suck on ‘em.”

“Smile, honey. Smile over here. Just smile for me! Too good? B****.”

“I’m gonna f*** the s*** out of you someday.”

Sandberg hopes that seeing the remarks written down will help hammer home her message.

“By writing the comments on the sidewalk where they happened, I raise public awareness about the issue,” Sandberg told HuffPost

“The colourful chalk and colourful words catch people’s eyes. They force those who wouldn’t normally experience catcalling to take a second look.”

Although sexual harassment on the street is incredibly common, not everyone has experienced it or realises the severity of the problem.

But Sandberg’s project is helping combat this. 

“No one questioned or challenged it. It was simply an accepted annoyance,”she said. 

“For me, it has always been more than an annoyance. It’s shaped my experience in public space. It’s affected my confidence and comfort walking down the street. It’s silenced me ― I’ve never felt comfortable responding to catcalls, as much as I’d like to tell these men off.”

Sandberg also hopes the project will encourage people to speak up when they see someone being catcalled.

She’s not the first to use Instagram to highlight the extent of street harassment – earlier this year, 20-year-old Dutch woman Noa Jansma made waves with her project Dear Catcallers, which saw her taking selfies with her street harassers.

With every project raising awareness, it’s hoped we can finally bring an end to women being harassed on the street while simply going about their daily lives.

Street Harassers in Washington, D.C. and Maryland are Democrats

It has become increasingly clear to me that the majority of street harassers, sexual predators and workplace harassers in the State of Maryland are Democrats.  Maryland and Washington, D.C. have been known for decades as being the bloc of Democratic voters which is often why national candidates do not heavily campaign in these areas.  The last election on the state level was an upset as Marylanders became increasing fed up with Democrat’s false promises, criminals and illegal aliens receiving more rights and benefits than law abiding citizens.  As I write this, it was not intended to be a political piece and this is my opinion based on observation.  However, I do feel the need to shed photolight on the blatant hypocrisy of Democrats in Maryland.  Most Black male “Christian” street harassers are the beneficiaries of the Democratic vote.  BLM, the majority of whom are black “Christians”, with their false claims to support Muslims are also Democrats.  I do not claim that all Democrats are bad, but one can easily observe that those who engage in this awful conduct are of that political party.

Of course, there are nice, middle class and even wealthy areas in Maryland, but many of these citizens’ conduct is not consistent with what a real suburb is.  Maryland is what can be easily seen as a false suburb, the obvious degenerate urban area is the City of Baltimore which has been blighted for years and each time there is gentrification ghetto black “Christians” are pushed into the suburbs of Baltimore County, Howard County and Anne Arundel County via Section 8 housing and other welfare programs. The same has occurred with certain parts of Washington, D.C., where gentrification pushed undereducated, low wage black workers who comprise the majority of street harassers in Prince George’s County, Maryland.  This has a two-fold effect (1) those middle and upper class blacks become the victims, not just of street harassment but other crimes by vagrant blacks; (2) the façade of conservatism is shattered as most foul-mouthed, tail-chasing, bigoted Democrat birthers of out of wedlock children, coddle their black “Christian” sons who grow in their belief of entitlement without labor, as well as the right to accost, jump in a black woman’s face, and street harass because of some unbeknownst expectation supported by the false belief that women and girls (total strangers mind you) are property for them to have at their leisure.  Yet, they like to purport how advanced “Christians” are to Muslims, and how Muslim women are oppressed.  In Maryland, it is black “Christians” who vote Democrat and certain trashy whites who oppress and street harass Muslim women in their daily lives.  From the grocer, the post office, to the park, Sunni Muslim women are mocked, street harassed and accosted by those who claim belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ.  This includes black “Christian” females who attack, molest, accost and verbally abuse Sunni Muslim Black American women (members of their own race) on a daily basis.  These are the bloc of Democratic voters along I-95 and the Baltimore Washington Parkway (295) suburbs of Maryland.  These types of people are not solely black but a lot of whites who vote Democrat are not only rude, ill-mannered (attempt to run women, especially Sunni Muslim ones off the road and jump in black women’s faces), low-level vagabonds are racist as well.  So, when did being a Democrat translate to being a “Christian” who is a purveyor of mockery and an attack of all women, when so many claim to have (Christian) religious and democratic values?  I do not have the answer but understand that is today’s standard among them.

The reality is that most street harassers, aside from being uneducated, from the inner cities, slums and trailer parks and other rural truckers in Maryland have been the majority new face of the Democratic vote and the long-lasting face of street harassment in the State of Maryland.
