A modest means to meed out musings and pleasant pastimes aplenty.
“I Shouldn’t Have to Feel Afraid”
“Alright love, how you doing tonight? You look lonely, want some company?”
Shouted at me often. As a woman I shouldn’t have to feel afraid to be outside alone after dark, but the sad fact is I do, and I have good reason to.
This sort of thing has happened to me quite a few times, too. The best part is that because I’m fat, I’ve had a lot of people clearly not believe me, and treat me as though I’m imagining things/making things up/ “Are you sure it was directed at you?” (Yes, I was the only other person on the street at the time!). Yay Intersectionality of Marginalization!
