About a week ago, not referring to the bobby shurmda song, i was running on this popular stretch of street where hundreds of men AND women workout daily. Myself being categorized as "thick" i guess you could say i have a nice sized bottom. the normal workout attire for myself is spandex shorts and a running shirt and as i was running down the street i had numerous cars honk, men yell things at me from their vehicles and i was ashamed. i thought the whole time i was exercising,"well maybe if i didn't wear these shorts" and "i shouldn't have worn these they are tight pants" but honestly i should be allowed to wear whatever i please and not be harassed. i should be able to walk around in workout clothes, WORKING out and not be sexualized by men. then one night i decided to go out to a party with a group of my friends, and we all were casually drinking and a young man tried to take advantage of the fact that i was slightly intoxicated and try to take me upstairs. luckily for myself i had friends who realized what was happening and took me home. later that day i was furious about the situation and told a few of my guy friends what had happened. " well maybe if you hadn't been drinking he wouldn't have tried to take advantage of you". lets just take a minuet and reflect on that response. maybe, if i hadn't been drinking a male wouldn't have felt the need to do that. Why is it when women drink, and something happens it is automatically their fault when a male tries something on them. why is it that i cant wear clothes that show off my body i have to be ashamed when a man sexualizes me. lets just say a sexual assault does in fact happen, it is my fault because i was wearing clothes that provoked a male. if i were to walk around downtown naked, i am not asking to be raped. i am not asking to be sexualized. I am not asking to be sexually harassed. the more and more i get fit and appreciate my body the more i realize how much i would love being a feminist and defending females in this horrible generation of sexism.
