I was walking to the train two days ago, and I was catcalled by multiple older men. I am a 16-year-old girl, and I was trying so hard to not yell back and call them perverts. It disgusts me that these men think it’s OKAY to sexualize the female body, especially of a minor. I know, all bodies are sexualized, but there is a limit.
That day I was wearing short, high-waisted yoga pants and a grey v-neck that stopped mid stomach. Normally I wouldn’t describe what I’m wearing, because honestly, women get cat called wearing just about anything. On this day, I was called a “slut for showing off my curves.” I’m not even going to try to understand what this person is feeling. I cannot control the way MY body is built. They can, however, control their repulsive thoughts and choose not to voice them. I rest my case.
