This just has to be my favorite thing of the week. Brightened my whole day. I’m sure most of you have seen the video of the woman getting catcalled every-other-freaking-minute on the streets of NYC. If not, take a few minutes and go watch it. Don’t worry, I’ll wait. *taps foot* Okay, you’re back? Completely disgusting, right? Well, a whole bunch of comments on that video have come up… naturally. And one popular stance is “they’re just trying to greet her!”, which I think is bullshit. So does Elon James White, CEO of This Week In Blackness, and it inspired him to start this brilliant hashtag. His whole point is that if men truly are doing this to women to simply “greet” them and be complimentary, why don’t they do it to other men? His tweets and the ensuing tweets utilizing the hashtag are just… too good.
