"There’s no point to a guy yelling, “Hey sexy baby” at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t. The car didn’t even slow down. But that’s okay, because he wasn’t actually hitting on me. The point wasn’t to proposition me or chat me up. The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. “Hey sexy baby” is the first part of a sentence that finishes, “this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property”."
So apparently iCloud was hacked and pretty much every female celebrity’s nudes were leaked. I’d like to remind my followers not to post them, because they’re supposed to be private, and just because some asshole leaked them doesn’t mean you should make it worse by spreading them around.
We’re holding our first Chalk Walk of the semester! Whether you’re a ram or not, come chalk up campus with us on Monday, August 25th at 2:30 pm. We will be meeting at the big ram horns outside of the commons at VCU.
What’s a Chalk Walk you ask? It’s a fun and non-violent way to reclaim the streets. We’ll be chalking things such as “Street harassment is NOT a compliment,” or “My dress is not a yes.”
We’ll provide the chalk, so just bring your badass self (and some friends!) and let’s take back what is rightfully ours.
I forgot I made these before summer started as a response to never being able to leave my house to exercise without being harassed by people along the way.
Looking at them now, I feel like these represent not only women’s rights but animal rights as well. So I feel like they are too important not to post.
