It blows my mind and infuriates me that everyone doesn’t see this as as serious as an issue that it is. Your essay prompted me to talk to my mom and I had a lengthy discussion with her about it. She was disgusted but not surprised. She had, much like most women, experienced it first hand and to the point where she hated it but she felt there was nothing that she, alone, could do about it. She called them cowards who hide in groups or in anonyminaity, hiding their own insecurities by harassing total strangers. I’m ashamed that I was ignorant for so long. I think everyone should read this essay.
