Experiencing catcalling when you’re not conventionally attractive is such an internal predicament. Because on one hand, when you experience it you’re repulsed. Because it’s still harassment. But on the other hand- you finally feel that someone finds you desirable. And as fucked up as it is, it validates you for yourself.

And if you don’t experience, you wonder if something is wrong with you, like you’re not pretty enough or desirable enough for it.

And I just think it’s really fucked up that our society has shaped us into thinking that there must be something wrong with us if we aren’t harassed, that if we are its okay to feel good about it. It’s fucked up.
