So when we are harassed, catcalled and assaulted, those moments are supercharged with entitlement and violence. Those who harass us are emboldened by the belief that we’ll be flattered, relieved or honored by the attention. Their expectations have been skewed by a culture that tells them to indulge in any impulse, disregarding any want that is not their own. A culture that tells them that they are entitled to nearly any body they claim. That tells them that so many of our bodies are disposable, accessible, theirs for the taking.
When catcalling is fatcalling.
