Jezebel praises some dumb feminist that lives in Minneapolis, MN for filming so-called encounters with street harassers.
In this one she harasses these guys because she overheard one guy say to his friend “Minnesota chicks are hot” as he walked by. Is this what passes for street harassment nowadays? [video]
In one video she berates two men because they were looking at her for too long. I guess a 3 second stare is considered street harassment. [video]
In another she approaches a man who says that he’s on dope and addicted to heroin. He said that he smelled her and that he’s a wolf. Y’know, crazy shit a junkie would say. [video]
In this one she takes offense to a man who merely says “you’re pretty” as she’s walking by. How the hell is that harassment? What, because she doesn’t want certain people to talk to her? Welcome to the United States where people are allowed to talk to other people without written consent, you stupid twat. Poor Umar, I don’t think she’s gonna call you bro but she’s more than willing to put your phone number on blast. [video]
If you watch her other videos you can tell exactly what she’s doing. She walks around the downtown metropolitan area waiting to capture what is usually black men who appear to be homeless with some kind of disorder saying rude things to her — or just talking to her without her written, enthusiastic consent. In fact, out of the 14 videos she has uploaded, 9 of them feature black men. Go figure that she would target these people because if you’ve ever met a homeless person they are often times very ill mannered usually due to living on the street for an extended period of time, having a history of mental illness, a traumatic brain injury, and/or alcohol and drug additions.
According to a 2012 statewide Minnesota study on the homeless, 54% are black in the metro area where she films these encounters. Of the long-term homeless, 60% of adults have a serious mental illness, 26% have a substance abuse disorder diagnosis, 61% of homeless men have been incarcerated, and 34% of homeless adults report a cognitive impairment (confusion, memory issues, or indecisiveness to the point that it interferes with daily activities). An article from 2013 states that the homeless problem is getting worse in Minnesota despite a better economy.
It appears that she is most likely exploiting homeless men with possible mental illnesses and/or substance abuse problems in the metro area to make it seem as if street harassment is a huge issue. It isn’t. The real issue is the homeless problem in downtown Minneapolis and the dismissal of people with mental illnesses and substance abuse problems.
But don’t pay any attention to that, cat calling is a national emergency because how dare anyone say anything to them that they don’t like! OPPRESHUN!!!
I have to wonder though how long it took her to get 14 filmed encounters since she uploaded her first video a week ago. Many of them don’t even qualify for harassment, just rudeness or her exaggerating the situation by making something out of nothing. That’s femtards for ya!
that is one disturbed lady.. What a bitch..
Does she have a job? Who has time to just wander around downtown??
