    It’s not just you. And for me at least it’s probably an age thing. I grew up with being pinched while walking with my mom in Rome who assured me it was a compliment and thought it was cute. I have developed my own personal line in the sand over the years. There are several versions of “Hi there” that I am fine with. What will tick me off are the more overt sexual calls or moves. Also because I’m older now, I have little to no problem with responding back, letting someone know something is over the line, or in one case, assuring the guy that “no, that isn’t big, in fact, my thumb is bigger.”

    A fascinating read! Thank you for sharing with us your views on street harassment. Ya know, I’m a cis straight guy, and I know this is your safe space and all, but I wanna say, I’ve had it happen to me too. I’ve been cat called before too, by women. It isn’t something I’m used to, but it’s never been flattering to me. Growing up, I’ve been called “fag” too, so I know what it’s like to be ostracized. I guess what I’m trying to say is, I know what it’s like, ya know? That’s why I don’t think we should do it. Anyway, a great piece.
