I hate not having the freedom to walk down the street

I was waiting outside my friend’s apartment last week. We had agreed to meet up, and I was early. A group of men on the corner started catcalling me. I ignored them and started walking in the opposite direction, and they started yelling more and telling me all the ways they were going to fuck … Continued

Weeks like this make me want to just stay home.
