I wish somebody would wear a camera to document how it's like to be a 21 year old boy going out.

[–]Dark triad expert: - - [3 Points]IllimitableMan 310 points311 points  (62 children)

Unless you are Zyzz with his top off, basically ignored and invisible.

This whole thing is one hugely veiled bragsplain. GUYS GIVE ME SO MUCH ATTENTION I'M SO OPPRESSED GIVE ME MONEY! Fucking please.

    [–]TestosteroneFilled 9 points10 points  (2 children)

    how Redpill he was.

    ehhhh that's a bit iffy. The guy was a skinny wow nerd then turned his life, not with trp but with going to the gym, roiding up and doing coke whilst atending all types of concerts with trash.

    The transformation and his persona was catchy and shit, but it's just where his looks did most of the work. I can't argue about him being an inspiration to everyone, with the whole "live life to the fullest" and his body though.

    [–]200mgtestc 9 points10 points  (1 child)

    He was completely RP. Crazy amounts of self-confidence, and a belief that he was the prize and all the bishes be mirin. Ya, he was attractive, but he built that himself, after all.

    [–]KarYotypeStereotype 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Yeah, but he was also a tremendous douchebag. Not to knock his physique achievements or anything. I find him inspirational as far as working out and getting laid, but that's as far as I take it. I don't to be the kind of person Zyzz was.

    [–]eeeaddict 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    as someone in that range, can confirm you'll get TOTALLY ignored though generally not bothered

          No racist slurs.

          [–]RPDBF 15 points16 points  (4 children)

          Is this new? Since when are people getting people banned for words, I thought this where a sub were men can talk without censorship....

          [–]Rebound 2 points3 points  (2 children)

          As a controversial sub, it's probably best to filter out stuff that could be used as a scapegoat for deletion.

          [–]WindowToAlaska 6 points7 points  (25 children)

          Goyim simply means non Jewish in Hebrew but I couldn't be assed to write it out.

          [–]MCrazyHorseInvincible[M] 30 points31 points  (24 children)

          And "nigger" simply comes from a linguistic root meaning "black".

          It is not simply denotations, but connotations, of what we say, that inform how we are heard. I realize that you meant to draw a distinction, rather than to insult, but I have banned people for talking about "niggers", or making pointed remarks about "Jamal and Tyrone", so in this case, consistency requires that I at least say, "Hey, cut that out".

          Now, to be clear, discussing cultural differences is okay, even if they are politically incorrect. We are, after all, nothing if not politically incorrect, and we are pretty much here to discuss culture.

          So, okay:

          • "Does the fragmentation of black families lead to thuggish behaviour on the part of fatherless young men?"
          • "Is there a thread within Jewish culture that measures success financially, and creates a pressure to prosper at the expense of other types of thriving?"

          NOT okay:

          • "Nigger"
          • "Kike"
          • "Goyim"
          • "Guailo"
          • "Haole"


          [–]Tsilent_Tsunami 23 points24 points  (17 children)

          White male here. Am offended that you haven't supplied an offensive term for "my kind".

          [–]sikballa 21 points22 points  (7 children)

          Guailo literally means Ghost Man in cantonese, used to refer to Caucasian males.

          [–]AnArcher 4 points5 points  (1 child)


          It's a slur for a white person; feel better now?

          [–]Gnometard 5 points6 points  (0 children)

          I lived in hawaii for a few years, I'm used to being called this. In certain contexts, it is offensive. In regular use it is simply another word.

          [–]Racefiend 2 points3 points  (1 child)

          Are there really any offensive terms for being white? I'm reminded of this:

          [–]LordzOfChaos 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          As someone from Hawaii, I'm surprised to see Haole there. Does it come up often here.

          [–]5 Endorsed ContributorStayinghereforreal 140 points141 points  (13 children)

          Nah, just walk those same neighborhoods as a guy wearing an expensive suit and tie.

          You will get panhandled way more than this chick got harassed. And there is a good chance some dude will seriously size you up for a mugging.

          Me? Sheeeeet, I would take her treatment over the stuff a dude in a suit would risk.

          This is really an indictment of urban "corner" culture than anything else. She did not walk through Park Slope or the Upper East Side, is my guess, and have anything to show for it.

          [–]relish-tranya 46 points47 points  (1 child)

          I was thinking the same as you. I'm a white guy and whenever I walk in the city on a crowded street, all kinds of bullshit interactions happen. I can't make it 2 blocks without panhandling or some ass yelling something. Good looking women do get some creepy shit beyond what most guys endure but society has it's rewards and punishments for everyone's position. Attractive women have it far easier in other areas of life.

          In IT, I have seen bad programmers rudely shown the door but good looking female ones are shuffled over to requirements and get full IT pay for making power-points and scheduling meetings.

          [–]loddfavne 24 points25 points  (2 children)

          Yeah. It's hard to be a guy, our lives offers more challanges than that of women. But, I'd rather be a man with the freedom it entails than to be doomed to female mediocracy.

          [–][deleted]  (2 children)


            [–]Position5hero 11 points12 points  (0 children)


            They still panhandle.

            Panhandlers would make great pick up artists- they FULLY understand the 'each shot you don't take is a miss' mentality,

            [–]theoctopuss 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            People will think you're Patrick Bateman or something.

            [–]monsieurhire2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

            This is really an indictment of urban "corner" culture than anything else.

            Yep. Now where are all the people to run out and call her a racist because she just doesn't understand the cultural differences in how different kinds of men approach women?!?!?! She's just coming at it from a white privilege perspective expecting guys to FB message her, but only after meeting her at an event designed to filter out low-income guys, like say a wine-tasting. These guys? Why, they are merely unqualified STRANGERS and RANDOMS! I bet they don't even have college degrees or make more than 60K a year!

            Also, these guys would be the last to respond to some sort of sensitivity campaign, since they're not college betas in training.

            [–]KarYotypeStereotype 14 points15 points  (0 children)

            Or a video about how black men get ignored. Oh wait, same video.

            [–]My_Post_Is_On_Topic 11 points12 points  (0 children)

            Holy fuck this is brilliant.

            Document an average male going out and getting rejected constantly.

            It'd be like the complete opposite of her video. Instead of being complemented and accepted constantly, the guy is rejected and ignored.

            [–]Rooibosisboss 37 points38 points  (5 children)

            and the second those "cat calls" stop, then what?

            she realizes she had chances and opportunities that people (aka guys) never truly are given because they are the ones who have to go out of their way to show interest.

            the second it stops is the second she realizes she was wrong to not like it or at least deal with it because it sure as shit is better to be cat called for being attractive than to be ignored for being ugly.

            I'd love to juxtapose this supposed problem that women have to a video of a guy walking the streets not getting spoken to at all and going from a smile to a frown to killing himself.

            In all seriousness the video is ridiculous. really? getting compliments suck and is so horrible to live with?

            It's like if I made a similar video of me walking down a busy street being tempted by oh McDonalds and oh Burger King, oh no not an Arby's and here we go with the KFC's and the Taco Bell's and then there's fancy restaurants and food carts, god this sucks you starving people in Ethiopia have no idea how good you have it.

            [–]loddfavne 1 point2 points  (1 child)

            Yeah. At one point it's very comfortable to realize that not getting or getting the wrong kinds of sexual attention is not a big problem. If it's a problem, it's not my problem. It's the other people who have a problem by doing unsuccessful mating strategies.

            And, the thing about Ethiopia really is a good analogy. I think a bit like that when I exercise. I feel real pain and not just the cherade that popular culture wants me to buy into.

            [–]Ignatius_Oh_Reilly 1 point2 points  (0 children)

            I had a friend who used to hang around with a guy who cat called. You observed an interesting trend. When a homely girl was cat called she would smile and blush. A good looking one, would be pissed.

            [–][deleted] 23 points24 points  (5 children)

            Watch the men in the video more closely. They are mostly awkward and intimidated. They gave her power by how they reacted to her looks. A couple of them seemed to feel the need to say something, anything, just because she was a woman passing by.

            I'll give you a perfect example of RP behavior I witnessed in a cat some years ago. A young female kept trying to get his attention while he was lounging in a covered parking lot space. He kept doing his thing and she kept trying to get noticed. Finally she lies down and presents to him. He sampled her offering with a lick to taste, was not convinced, and walked off. That cat chooses who he mates with and when. Most of those guys were acting girl-poor and trying for any scraps that happened to pass by.

            Instead of complaining about being treated worse, it's far more constructive to take back your power and choose. Sure a girl might be hot and you want to get some, but you still get to choose if you're going to put up with shit or not. That's your power right there. You choose what you will allow to enter your sphere of influence. Pay attention to what you want on your terms. This is why women try to dress sexy. They're trying to get your attention. See the power shift?

            [–]loddfavne 2 points3 points  (4 children)

            I agree. Those men were handing their stuff out to a random girl for free. Those guys tried to fake confidence and failed. Perhaps that was the real reason that woman saw them as creeps?

            [–]KarYotypeStereotype 13 points14 points  (3 children)

            There's a reason it's mostly low-income, low-status men who do the catcalling. They're giving it away because it isn't worth anything to begin with. Women see the behavior as creepy because these guys are low SMV, plain and simple. They call it "threatening" and "creepy" and "harassment" because they can't stop at calling it what it really is -- "unattractive." Imagine a good looking white guy with a fine suit and a rolex walking past and saying any of the things these other men were saying: "Have a nice day, beautiful." What do you think the reaction would be?

            [–]loddfavne 2 points3 points  (2 children)

            When high-SMV men attract the attention of women, the results are definitivly not suitable for Youtube.

            [–]Hoodwink 5 points6 points  (1 child)

            There's a bunch of 'prank' videos where they rent a sports car and pick up women - half the time with their boyfriends looking on. (And to be sure, they make it obvious to the girl that sex is going to happen.)

            It's funny in a, "oh women" type of way. Men are definitely the romantic sex.

            [–]kingofcrob 9 points10 points  (1 child)

            make it a 21 year old well dressed white boy walking around bangkok

            [–]legauge 202 points203 points  (63 children)

            Oh boy, SJWs are gonna be so conflicted on this one. Which basically means it'll get nowhere.

            On one side, woo women harrassment, time to sharpen the axes.

            On the other side, all the harassers are black, time to put the axes back in the shed. Clearly it's all because the white cis scum males of the country are pushing them to do it.

            [–]Homosubi 282 points283 points  (15 children)

            Logic for SJWs:

            -Blacks are good

            -Whites are bad

            -Women are good

            -Men are bad

            Black men harassing white woman:


            [–]bangbangahah 27 points28 points  (1 child)

            He was just harassing her because he has been oppressed his whole life shitlord! Its the only way he can vent and fight the white patriarchy!

            [–]blippie 12 points13 points  (0 children)


            Replace the word LOGIC with FEELS. It's all feelings with the SJW crowd, never seen logic used yet.

            [–]LineOfCoke 40 points41 points  (6 children)

            With white college educated women abortion is the solution to every problem.

            [–]Redpillonlyaccount 1 point2 points  (1 child)

            No account of money could make it worth having to clean shit off a screaming baby's ass at 3am. I don't know why anyone would think having kids instead of a job as being life on easy mode. My life is easy mode. No responsibilities and a job I enjoy that pays me more than enough to enjoy life.

            [–]redpilltom 5 points6 points  (0 children)

            Logic overload? That's rich, how can a logic circuit board go haywire when it doesn't exist on an sjw?

            You have yo understand, they don't see those harassers as black men, only as men. Just like if a black guy posted a video of a hundred white girls being racist to him, it wouldn't be an issue with white women, but white people.

            [–]HushtheHipster 72 points73 points  (14 children)

            Just a little addendum: I'm familiar with the streets she's walking on. A lot of them are in ghetto areas or adjacent to ghetto areas. They may not look like it on screen since they're all commercial, but they are notorious for being such. It's like she intentionally went to low socioeconomic, predominantly black areas to make a point. You do see this type of interaction fairly often in the city and it's ALWAYS a scummy guy who's caught up in that 'gangsta' culture instigating it.

            [–]2alisonstone 117 points118 points  (6 children)

            And she really stands out in those areas because people there look poor as fuck while she looks like an ordinary middle class white woman. If you get an Asian male dressed like a FOB walking through those areas, you'll probably get far more random comments than this woman did.

            I grew up in those ghetto places and that is just how people act there. If a guy in a suit walks by, you'll probably hear someone say "damn, that's a nice suit nigga" (even if the guy is white) or something like that. And that is the street vernacular. People use those words and that tone with everybody. They seem loud and obnoxious, but that is how people are in those communities.

            In my opinion, this just shows the complete disconnect that middle class white women have with the lower class. It is like taking someone from the country and putting them into a very urban country where people stand very close to each other. The person from the country would feel uncomfortable because he feels like his personal space is being violated. It's his problem though, because when you enter someone else's environment, you can't expect them to know what offends you. Women in the lower socio-economic class are not complaining about this stuff, because they don't care, that is just how things are in their culture. They know how to deal with it (ex: Why is it that lower class black women are often very loud and sassy? That is their culture and that is how they act in that environment). It's just the middle class white women that are complaining that poor people exist. I mean, if white women become offended with Chinese because they don't understand what Chinese people say, should we ban Chinese from being spoken?

            This is why Feminism has zero support from minorities or poor people. They see through the bullshit. If you say that white women should never feel scared or offended, what if they overwhelmingly only feel scared or offended around black people or around poor people? If women are allowed to retroactively withdraw consent, who do you think she is more likely to withdraw consent from? Certainly not the rich polo player. Just listen to Patrice O'Neal's story about the time he spent in jail because a white girl wanted to have a gangbang with him and a few of his black friends. All was good until one day her friends/family found out and were acting like "oh my god, how can you have a gangbang with three black men", and then consent was suddenly withdrawn because of the social stigma of fucking black men. Minorities and poor people are terrified of feminism because this bullshit has been pulled on them too many times. Ugly white men should be terrified too, but many of them haven't experienced enough racism or prejudice to know how unjust these types of rules can be.

            [–]Larette 13 points14 points  (0 children)


            I think this is an excellent reply to the issue being discussed and this is coming from someone who saw this on the front page thanks to 2X being a default.

            Checked with /r/MensRights to see if they had anything to say about the issue and found nothing so i thought i'd give /r/TheRedPill a look.

            Thanks for giving me a chance to look at both sides of the topic!

            [–]legauge 14 points15 points  (0 children)

            They tend to bend the narrative for their purpose.

            in miami that girl wouldnt even be given a second look by most middle class men. She is a 3.5/10 down here

            [–]DGer 8 points9 points  (0 children)

            And got told such terrible things as "Good morning" and "Have a nice day ." Scum of the Earth.

            [–]yourenogood 21 points22 points  (0 children)

            Just ignore the fact that they're non-white males, scoop it all up into the wider category of "men", and throw that shit at white, middle class guys as usual because they're the easy target.

            [–]TheRpPhilosopher[S] 27 points28 points  (12 children)

            Interesting take on this, I honestly did not notice the race aspect on the video but the fact that you did shows that others might as well. That could add quite the dynamic for a SJW. I just noticed the amount of "God Bless You's" when I was expecting "HEY GIRL LEMME SUCK YO TITTY NOM NOM NOM!"

            [–]zpatriarchy 24 points25 points  (1 child)

            yup, you can bet race will start to be an issue in this video. wait until black feminists realize they can start tweeting again #solidarityisforwhitewomen

            [–]TheSKSpecial 15 points16 points  (0 children)

            They won't. They complain about the same shit: lower-value males offending their delicate sensibilities by daring to speak to them. She'd have to say some truly racist "get these dirty niggers away from me" type shit before black feminists would speak up against her.

            Like /u/JP_Whoregan said, they'll rally around "Team Woman" before they rally around "Team Minority".

            [–]1myTRPaccount 19 points20 points  (7 children)

            This is not the first time this kind of video has been shot. The first time I saw a video of "Street Harassment", it was literally all black males harassing a white woman. I was also looking to see if they were all black. Most of them are. There is a white guy or two in there.

            You should also note that most of the neighborhoods she walked in are not considered to be very good neighborhoods at all.

            [–]17 Endorsed ContributorJP_Whoregan 15 points16 points  (0 children)

            I dunno. When it comes to SJWs, my observation has been that they will rally around "Team Woman" before they rally around "Team Minority".

            [–]MartialWay 7 points8 points  (1 child)

            I addressed that with this post. They weren't happy about it. -

            'A lot of guys here are guilty of the crime of "Reckless Eyeballing". In the old South, if someone wasn't considered "good enough" to talk to (or even look at) white women, society would pressure law enforcement and vigilantes to harass them, beat them, and sometimes even murder and lynch them. I can't help but detect a subtle sense of racism and bias here. Would she be labeling it "harassment" if Leonardo Di Caprio was shooting a movie in New York and happened to call her "beautiful"? If the answer is no, then the crime here is not "Harassment" but "Reckless Eyeballing".'

            [–]whitey_male 16 points17 points  (0 children)

            Damned fuckin straight. Almost all the harassers were black, and the other ones could have been Latino I couldn't tell.

            Eat shit SJW scum.

            , all the harassers are black

            They just ignore that small detail. To be specific though, I couldn't find anyone who wasn't mexican or black. MAYBE one dude was white, its hard to tell.

            [–]1niczar 15 points16 points  (9 children)

            On the other side, all the harassers are black

            They won't mention it and pretend not to notice it.

            We had the same hysteria a few months back in Europe. A belgian woman did the same kind of stint. And sure, she did get cat called and I'm sure it was uncomfortable, and if I had been with a woman and a man had done such a thing I would've punched the fucker.

            Now here's the thing. When a FB "friend" posted that crap on FB, it was titled something like "men are pigs" or whatever. So I simply asked, "who are the men who do this?" I had to point out they were all clearly, without exception, poor Arab immigrants. I called her a moron and that she should stop insulting me and other men with that stupid shit. She said I was taking things too personally. I called her a stupid cunt a few times and removed her from my fucking "friends" list.

            [–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (7 children)

            I'm sure it was uncomfortable, and if I had been with a woman and a man had done such a thing I would've punched the fucker.

            You would fight some man just for cat calling? Are you white knight or what?

            [–]Glenbert 3 points4 points  (4 children)

            If a man is cat calling a woman you are with, he is effectively calling your masculinity into question. Sure, getting into a fight over it is still pretty stupid. But realize what's going on here: that man had you pegged as a meaningless beta bitch.

            [–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (2 children)

            Laugh and leave ... amused mastery, its a shit test as any other :)

            Edit: Imagine it this way, Ryan Gossling is walking down the street with his GF, some guy on the corner cat calls her, do you think Gossling will go to him and fuck him up? Nope. He will just look at him, laugh and continue walking. This guy is so below him that he literary doesn't give a fuck about him, by engaging in argument/fight with him you are showing you are threaten.

            [–]ThanksRoissy 35 points36 points  (2 children)

            A great comment on you tube illustrates your point:

            So females cannot handle the fact that people try talk to them when they walk down the streets? Some guy saying "Have a great evening! God bless!" is to much for women to handle? Women are this weak?

            The solution is to keep women inside and remove all their rights. If women are really this useless and pathetic then it is clear that giving them suffrage and letting them have jobs was obviously a mistake.

            I semi-disagree with you.

            Most of them were totally harmless. The two guys who were following her were fucking weird, she has a right to complain about that.

            [–]Sketti-Os 37 points38 points  (9 children)

            Yeah, I feel you on that. Those two instances were rightful reason for complaint. Other than that, she seemed to give a defeated look when someone said hello. Like her fucking world is crumbling beneath her.

            You know what I would say to someone who said hello to me?

            I'd serve them a nice, hot plate of "hi there" with a side of friendly smiles.

            [–]lemonparty 27 points28 points  (6 children)

            No, you see, the obligation of having to respond to every pleasantry with one of your own is an incredible burden for a young woman.

            Imagine having a person on every single block say something pleasant to you, and having to be kind in return. It's just a hell, I say! A hell!

            [–]CheesyWeiner 5 points6 points  (0 children)

            Seriously? Have you ever lived in the city?

            I learned my lesson about doing that pretty quickly.

            People will come up to you all the time all polite and considerate. Then when they find out they won't get shit from you they quickly turn.

            It goes from "Good morning amd God bless" to "fuck you ou stupid piece of shit cracker nigger!"

            You don't acknowledge these people at all. It's the safest way to act in the city.

            I (as a male) have been followed a couple of blocks by crazy people.

            Half these "harassments" were probable people wanting to sell things or hand out coupons.

            I went to this woman's Facebook page and she has dozens of publicly available photos of herself. In bikinis, showing off cleavage, etc. Men comment on her photos "DAMN GIRL!", "Honey you so fine", "So Sexy". This girl LIKED those comments. I pointed this out on my fbook feed and got attacked by a million hamsters.

              Revealing photos on facebook, making a video complain-boasting about "harassment" on youtube. All signs of an advanced case of attentionwhoritus.

              [–]betonlinesucks 79 points80 points  (4 children)

              This was my comment in the original thread:

              As a white man who has black male and female friends. I've catcalled both white and black women. 0% success rate with white women, ~40-50% with black women (atleast when I was on campus) I'd hollar at a black woman and she'd look away, then look back at me and come over and talk. It was crazy. I think there is a huge cultural difference here that everyone is ignoring. It's black culture (in some, not all circles) to catcall because black girls actually respond to that attention. For white women, I think they by and large have been taught to ignore catcalling all together.

              I also wrote, How do we not know the person in the video didn't edit this to just include a majority of minorities perpetuating the catcalling?

              Replace the word catcalling for complimenting at your leisure

              [–]1niczar 27 points28 points  (2 children)

              Same here in France with Arab girls. I've never cat called myself, can't really bring myself that low, but I used to live in a neighborhood where quite a few congregated. The boys would cat call any and all women, upper/middle class white women would all be disgusted, and lower class/immigrant girls would sometimes react positively, to my surprise.

              Bottom line? The reason why they do it is because it sometimes works.

              [–]FrenchMaybe 17 points18 points  (0 children)

              they do it because it sometimes works

              Exactly, they wouldn't do that shit if NOBODY ever found success from it. You never know. Worse case scenario you end up on a stupid feminist video, however typically nothing good or bad comes from it because she's just a random stranger walking away from you. If you're lucky, maybe she'll acknowledge you. I've never catcalled a women in my life but the guys in the video we watched were (for the most part) civil.

              Mais il n'y a pas trop d'arabes dans ma ville, alors j'ai pas beaucoup d'expérience avec ce phénomène

              Thank you for your response, this needs to be closer to the top. It's a difference of culture. Should we shame her for not respecting their culture?! Racist!

              [–]sniperhiding 62 points63 points  (3 children)

              Fat girl: "I am beautiful, look at me. I demand my right that you find me sexy".

              Hot girl: "don't look at me, don't say a word to me. I demand my right to not have you notice me".

              More dumb girl bullshit wanting both ways.

              [–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

              To be fair, most hot girls don't care when guys check them out and even enjoy the attention.

              It's the mediocre looking girls like the one in the video who complain about male attention as a way of humblebragging.

              [–]PN135 21 points22 points  (5 children)

              I consider myself a rational, empathetic person -- I actively try to take the perspectives of other people and fully understand them. For whatever reason, I rarely receive these kinds of compliments or interactions. When I do, I really enjoy and appreciate them, regardless of where they came from.

              I'm honestly trying to understand at what point these would get so "old" or unwanted that you'd consider it legitimately abusive. Even if I were getting attention from just mediocre members of the opposite sex, I can't really picture the point where it would cause some sort of psychological damage. How many times would people -- even unremarkable or ugly people -- have to say "You look great in that outfit" before it becomes abusive? Let's face it, the guys in this video probably weren't ideal boyfriend material, but I wonder if a worthy man might have paid her a subtle, acceptable compliment somewhere in those 10 hours and not made the highlight reel. I guess we'll never know.

              Another point of confusion is this: If you were to see someone that you were genuinely interested in, how should their approach to you be different from fairly typical "How are you doing? You're pretty, would you like to get coffee or something?" type of approach seen in the video?

              Lastly, How would you ever know if you're one of the few worthy men without speaking up, paying a bold-but-respectful compliment and at least getting some kind of acceptance/rejection feedback? People have all sorts of preferences; wouldn't these attempts, regardless of how fruitful they are, fall under "no harm in trying"?

              Perhaps the lens that I can't look through is the notion that men (supposedly) seek out multiple women, and women are seeking the very "best" man available to them. I'm sure that's a gross oversimplification. Then I could begin to understand why a high volume of low-quality propositions could get annoying; it would be just as annoying if you were sifting through a hundred low-quality bids to repair your house or interviewing a hundred bad job candidates for one job. Annoying, but not abusive.

              [–]EeeeeeevilMan 45 points46 points  (2 children)

              You ever see a spoiled little kid who gets every expensive toy given to him the second he asks for it? Ever see that same kid get a toy he didn't want instead of the one he was expecting and the way he'll recoil in horror and disgust instead of being grateful for something some people don't get at all?

              Pretty much the exact same thing. A big amount of female behavior can be explained by looking at spoiled children.

              [–]TheRpPhilosopher[S] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

              true, and perfect analogy to add to that most girls aren't this extreme and don't mind being talk to, as long as you aren't a complete asshole they appropriate it.

              [–]sheriffbigbywolf 120 points121 points  (28 children)

              Out of those 100 instances, I'm guessing 95 were just cordial greetings like the majority of the ones in this video - not harassment at all. The guy following the woman who didn't respond to him down the street, or for five minutes, or asking "Am I ugly?" Undoubtedly harassment, those guys are stupid fucks with bad game.

              However, the women and white knights getting riled up about men saying "Hello" or "Have a nice evening" to women on the street aren't actually pissed about harassment. Harassment is a very specific way of talking to someone, in which the intent is to scare or threaten them. Talking to someone because you're sexually attracted and want to approach them is not the same thing, even if it is done with poor grace or none at all. The intent is different.

              They're not pissed about street harassment, or the majority of content in that video would be harassment, not simple (albeit, admittedly bad) approaches. They're pissed about street approaches.

              Why do feminists and white knights want to stop street approaching? Because street approaching is one of the only ways a man can approach a woman without her having some kind of filter or control over who is allowed to do so.

              If she's in an expensive bar, or a night club with a heavy cover charge, she has already filtered out any guy who does not have the money to get in, is dressed poorly, etc. The bouncer does that for her.

              If she's in a coffee shop, she knows guys with bad "DAMN GURL" game are probably filtered out, because coffee shops are small, quiet, and usually the guy will be in front of an audience as soon as he starts speaking. The environment does the work for her.

              In the book store, she knows any guy who talks to her is going to be at least somewhat intellectual, and probably not a felon. The product being sold does the work for her.

              And on and on. In every circumstance where a man can approach a woman other than the street, there is some pre-filtering going on; she has some bit of control from the beginning. A woman has no control over who approaches her on the street. It could be literally anyone: a bum, a billionaire, a serial rapist, or Paul Simon.

              And if there is one thing today's women hate, hate, hate, hate, it is feeling like the man has the power in a social romantic situation, and she is not the one in total control. Fifty years ago, did anyone give a shit about street approaches? No. In places where masculinity rather than femininity is still society's chief ideal, like Eastern Europe, SEA, and South America, does anyone care about street approaches? NO! It is understood that men approaching women is a normal part of male sexuality and that men who don't approach are A) pussies and B) not going to get laid/reproduce.

              Only in highly feminized societies, which are brainwashed into believing women should be in charge of every facet of society and life in general, can something as harmless as a "Hey miss, have a good evening" from a passing stranger be twisted into a social evil that must be abolished.

              Don't forget to crowdfund her world-saving, guys.

              TL;DR: As usual, it's about power.

              Edit: I also don't know what is more sad... the fact that this flabby piece of dough with a five face is considered an attractive girl in the U.S., or that guys in New York City of all places are so thirsty they don't know she isn't.

              [–]Gold_Mouth 15 points16 points  (0 children)

              I must admit, I think my black/Mexicanness is to blame for my urge to fuck this girl.

              [–]potentialkid 18 points19 points  (3 children)

              Attraction isn't the same for everyone. You saw a flabby girl, the black men saw a white women with curves. A white women with curves is generally more attractive to black men then a pretty skinny girl.

              [–]IrecordNFLlol 2 points3 points  (2 children)

              Can I ask, where exactly it states that black men see flabby chicks as attractive, let alone "curvy"?? I don't have a lot in common with what's culturally expected of black men, but that specific stereotype bugged the fuck out of me in college.

              [–]CJ090 1 point2 points  (0 children)

              The stereotype goes that we black men like fat white women because "more cushion for the pushin ect" Basically we just want something with a fat booty no matter if that booty is fat and saggy and comes with a grotesque fat woman. I am not apart of that stereotype. The girl in the video is very attractive and seems to be in shape with a solid build in her chest and a healthy build in her but (firm and shapely from running or some sort of physical activity)

              [–]1wiseclockcounter 45 points46 points  (13 children)

              social romantic situation ?

              are you joking me? Your attempt to reframe the dynamics at play is hopelessly contrived. There is nothing romantic about these guys talking to her. The fact that you used that word reveals your true angle: you're offended by her disgust because you think she's talking about you, which makes you defend these men despite their actual value.

              Everyone ITT trying to downplay the harassment is missing the point. Believe it or not it IS harassment. "Oh he was just complimenting her!" Get real.

              The issue here, as it's always been, is that women want to be approached only by the men that they deem worthy of reciprocation. Everyone else needs to stfu and avert their gaze. Their advances are seen as harassment because she is not interested in them.

              You're right, it's about power. But to ignore the fact that these men are pathetically delusional is useless. In effect, these men are in the same social position as sexless beta males. They are denied sex from the female community writ large. Except the difference is that they lack the modesty/anxiety associated with cold approaches... so they just blurt shit out to every pair of legs with an ass that walks by.

              Low value men (be they beta males or sexless street sitters) are shamed out of the sexual market by default. We here at TRP know and embrace this reality. But we here at TRP also hold these men responsible for their station and their ignorance to their value. There's a reason monk mode is advocated here, a reason that lifting and reading and socializing and becoming an all around better man is the primary directive for newcomers here-- because trying to game girls when your value is rock bottom is useless, pathetic, and delusional.

              These men deserve neither support, nor sympathy. They are delusional and valueless. It is not wrong to hold these opinions of people. Everyone is responsible for self-awareness and self-actualization. If you're online reading here, you're most likely not one of these street urchins anyways, so what's the point in defending them? Instead of getting angry and defensive at women's sexual preferences, change your life to get the most from the SMP.

              (by the same token, it should be said that women need to stop expecting low value men to not be delusional.)

              This is. BY FAR. the most on point explanation of why we always say that TRP is about self improvement.

                I'd like to get a control sample video of some of those guys and see who else they talk to on the street. For all we know they say that to every white person that walks by and half the black people.

                Ugly feminist has to walk for ten hours with the express purpose of getting some attention, almost gets 2 minutes of compliments and then calls it "harassment" and begs you to donate your hard earned money to her site dedicated to abolishing freedom of speech. Feminism is a DISGUST!

                [–]Swagzor 19 points20 points  (3 children)

                Yes, its only 90 seconds of a 10 hour footage!

                So she only get so called "harassed" 0,25% of the time. In one of the crowded cities in the world.

                [–]lemonparty 18 points19 points  (1 child)

                90 seconds out of 10 hours

                and 95% of that "harassment" was just a polite greeting like "god bless"

                So more like 0.0125% of the time was actual harassment. And she was a white chick choosing to stroll through obviously ghetto hoods. The extraordinary lengths they had to go to in order to conjure up maybe a few seconds of legit harassment tells me that real world scenarios are ZIP, ZERO NADA for most chicks, most of the time.

                [–]Nerf_Circus 15 points16 points  (0 children)

                The part that pissed me off the worst was; guy at 50 seconds is walking along, falls in step with her tried to open her, she doesn't pay him any attention, so he's says bye and keeps walking. Then they imply he's following her, despite the fact she walked at a pace to catch up to him, willing to bet after '(5 mins)' the reason they don't show him stopping his following of her because he's was innocently going to the bakery or something and that would ruin the bullshit narrative they are trying to project about him.

                [–]TheAustinFunHouse 0 points1 point  (45 children)

                ehh, IMO it's disingenuous to call the interactions in that video compliments.

                An appropriate compliment is a barista or some such person you are already having an interaction with tell you you have pretty hair, or eyes, or what have you. A compliment isn't "damn girl, you fine" or any such variation. A compliment isn't following you down the street, or nagging at you like a child for your number.

                Do you honestly believe it is too much to ask to want to be left to yourself? Letting guys off the hook here really doesn't say much for this community's view of men. It gives the impression that asking men to be civil is not a reasonably achievable goal. This is what is called a weakness.

                Maybe there's some level of overreaction with regard to cat-calling, but goddamn if there isnt an equally overreactive backlash here to the extraordinary proposition that people on the street deserve to be left the fuck alone.

                [–]hohamocha 27 points28 points  (0 children)

                Lets pay people to stop complimenting women. And instead insult their looks. "DAYYYUM GURL YOU PREGNANT? CUZ THAT BELLY LOOK BLOATED AS FUCK!"

                [–]TheSKSpecial 11 points12 points  (0 children)

                You know why men "cat-call"? Because some women DO respond positively to it. Nobody would do it if it didn't work.

                Want men to stop? Then EVERY woman needs to stop responding to ANY man who does it, regardless of how attractive he is. Brad Pitt or Idris Elba tell you you have a nice ass, you better get in his face and shout harassment the same way you would the average man on the street. If you get all flustered and flirty, congrats, you're condoning street harassment. If a well-dressed, good looking man says "good morning", you better give him the meanest bitch-face you can and go into a speech about how he doesn't have the right to speak you and you have the right to be left alone. Throw in a couple references to "patriarchy" and "male gaze" while you're at it.

                You do that, and "street harassment" dies overnight. Of course, that would mean you'd no longer get the attention of attractive men either, and that would also mean that if you were attracted to a man that you saw that YOU would have to be the one doing the approaching and speaking, but that's a small price to pay to end the scourge of street harassment.

                How many women are going to line up to take on THAT challenge?

                [–]reddit_sucks2 25 points26 points  (6 children)

                What's amazing to me is the hamstering woman go through to explain this.

                Here is some decent examples:

                WhiteMansTurden 10 points 4 hours ago As a man, I obviously have no idea what it's like to be a woman. However, a good portion of those 'verbal harassments' were guys saying 'God Bless' and 'Have a good day.' Can we define harassment? Because I'd be a way happier person if a single person ever told me to have a good day as I ran errands around town...

                Bzzt 27 points 3 hours ago Because its not just 'have a good day'. You think they'd say that if a guy walked by? No. Therefore its sexually motivated, and therefore its threatening and intrusive.

                Freeman720 [score hidden] 2 hours ago Apparently if I say hi to a woman I find attractive, I'm being "threatening and intrusive". Huh. So I guess that makes me literally Hitler at this point.

                Bzzt [score hidden] 2 hours ago No you're right. Saying hello to a woman is always acceptable. Why don't you try hanging out in dark alleys and parking garage stairwells to say hello to women? I'm sure they would appreciate that.

                giveuschannel83 0 points 2 hours ago Since when are flirting and harassment the same thing? Of course they are saying it to the attractive women for a reason - they're flirting. But flirting is not, on its own, a threatening behavior. It's made threatening here in a few instances where the man is extremely persistent.

                Bzzt -2 points 2 hours ago Flirting and harassment are the same when its uninvited and unwanted. Similarly, following or accompanying someone isn't threatening behavior in some situations - like if someone is a friend or acquaintance. However in the video the following is creepy as fuck. By the same token the rest of the 'friendly remarks' are essentially public announcements that they see the woman as a sex object.

                There you have it people, all naked and hanging out there. Flirting and harassment are the same when its uninvited and unwanted.

                So to these feminazi's, any form of flirting is considered harassment when its unwanted. The thing these terrible human beings aren't realizing though is it is difficult to tell if your attention is unwanted prior to trying to give some. Sure you can try to read body language, where the person is and a host of other things; but in the end, the only thing that actually answers the question as to whether or not a woman doesn't want your attention is by giving her some and seeing her reaction.

                What's hilarious is this individual is basically admitting to a red pill truism about not being unattractive or ugly. Basically you are harassing a woman when you have low SMV and are attempting to chat her up, but you are flirting when your SMV is high enough the woman perceives you as such and accepts your advances.

                So there you go people, its as simple as that! If you are a man with low SMV, any form of advance or flirting is harassment.

                I'm appalled at that entire thread, the woman most of the time was told good morning/afternoon or how are you doing most of the time, but because its done by men she considers are beneath her it is harassment. You better believe if a model type pretty boy or a rich looking executive, whatever type of man with high SMV it doesn't really matter made advances to her it would be acceptable.

                It's what I've seen regurgitated here so often it almost seems unreal, but there is the proof right there, men with low SMV have no business talking at, looking at or even glancing at a woman with high SMV or one who perceives herself to be as such.

                I'm also amused at the donation, as if somehow paying money to some random woman is going to.....stop men from flirting with women? The whole thing is incredibly confusing and when you actually distill it to it's purest form, you can clearly see that women are trying to redefine what harassment and flirting is, so that they can be interchangeable depending on the mood of the individual and the status of the person initiating.

                The sickest part of the video is not a random guy walking next to her for five minutes, or a guy asking if he is ugly and trying to give his number out and push hard to get hers. No the sickest part of the video is the people agreeing with her that those men are harassing her.

                What's amusing is people pointing out, "some people just want to be left alone!". Okay then cool, how about moving the fuck out of one of the most population dense areas in America and go live in a tiny town where you will actually be ignored. But of course that isn't what they really want, they just want to not be spoken to by low SMV men, and by relabeling harmless flirting as harassment, they are well on their way. Just another classic case to not pay attention to what women say, but what they do.

                I was expecting comments in the video like, "nice ass sweetie", "wanna come ride my dick", and all other sorts of comments. Instead what I saw was mostly, "good afternoon", "how are you doing", and "you are looking beautiful", the men were obviously holding back 99% of the shit they could have been saying, but because they are low SMV, it still isn't good enough.

                Again, the video is sickening, but not for the reasons feminazi's believe.

                I want to see her walk through a really rich area of new york and watch her get completely and utterly ignored while she gets angrier and angrier.

                Your comment is perfect, I just want to add one thing:

                What's amusing is people pointing out, "some people just want to be left alone!". Okay then cool, how about moving the fuck out of one of the most population dense areas in America and go live in a tiny town where you will actually be ignored.

                Exactly, OR if some dude is following you for 2-5 minutes then why don't you say "please stop following me" or "go away", I'm sure the guys would take the hint. Ignoring people works but it takes a longer time for it to sink in, just keep walking.

                Honestly, the unwanted compliments aren't harassment, annoying maybe, harassing – no.

                [–]WoodFireEarthWater 8 points9 points  (0 children)

                She'll be spending the next ten years outraged at "harassment", and then the rest of her life wondering where all of the attention and special treatment went.

                [–]theredpillthrow 10 points11 points  (1 child)

                So I showed this to my LTR GF and she was on the girls side until I explained it like this.

                Anything in excess is annoying, Imagine you walk into a hospital and they offer you a job on the spot. Its not a great job, your current one is better so you turn it down. You never really have to look for a job and some of the offers are downright stupid. This happens to you constantly, all day and all night. Then you complain about it expecting people to be able to relate. They don't.

                That woman is rich in attention, which those guys "harassing" her are desperate for. The go through life every day getting ignored, if I had to pick between getting too much attention and getting none at all, I'd pick the former.

                [–]fuckin_retard 22 points23 points  (7 children)

                Here's the thing about "street harassment". Its not a male thing. Its a black thing.

                I've lived in black communities and this is how men and women interact. The men whoop and holler at the ladies, and the ladies can either be flattered and reciprocate the attention, or they can holler back obscenities and belittle the man in question.

                I've seen black girls call black dudes "lil dick niggas", "punk ass niggas", and a slew of other highly offensive terms.

                You know what happens? All the other black guys laugh at the dude and berate the shit out of him.

                Furthermore, black girls are also more direct in their courting efforts as well. I've had numerous black girls be extremely sexually direct torwards me, despite no advances on my part.

                It's a different fucking culture.

                You would be hard pressed to get this same sort of footage walking in a predominantly white, upper class area.

                In fact, I have a first hand example. I was with my black friend X, walking in a highly populate and diverse area at night. When he approached the black girls, pants sagging, and saying highly inappropriate shit, they would either laugh and go with it, or they would cast him off with vulgar retorts. It was all fun for them. When he tried the same sort of behavior with white girls, they were extremely uncomfortable and borderline scared. Honestly people... its a race thing.

                [–]LadyLumen 1 point2 points  (1 child)

                Maybe white culture is just more private, and black/hispanic culture is more public. My theory is that is part of why minorities get into more legal trouble than white guys (aside from institutional racism). People do drugs and illegal shit at the same rates across racial barriers, but black people do more illegal things in public and white people do them in private where they won't get in trouble.

                [–]LadyLumen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                I've seen quite a few black dudes smoking a big fat joint in public, never seen a white guy do that.

                I would add this happens even more so in Latin/Hispanic cultures as well, also a lot of European cultures......Yea I think it's a male thing

                It's like if someone wore a US Marine uniform and started walking around in Afghanistan then started complaining about how "I know the way I dress may be viewed as "provocative" but NO MAN EVER DESERVES TO GET SHOT AT!!! Afghans have a violent murder-culture!!"

                It's true, no one deserves to get shot at but youre wearing a Marine uniform walking around in a country that aren't particularly fond of Marines. What the fuck did you expect?

                And Afghans aren't even violent. It's the Taliban--insane fanatics who can't be reasoned with. Most Afghans want nothing to do with the Taliban. #NotAllAfghans.

                I was waiting for the, "Sup slut?!" "Hey bitch!" "Yo, come suck this dick!" ...but I never heard it. Instead it was compliment... after compliment... after undeserved compliment. She has nice tits and rates as generally a 6.5/7, definitely nothing I'd verbally comment on (though I might double take her tits). Yea, hard life... dontate plz!

                So where is the money supposed to go? Pay me, I get complimented on the street. This is absurd. White girl claiming to be oppressed on the street because of random compliments, this is why feminism has such a toxic stigma nowadays. There are fathers battling with every last penny they have just to see their children 2 out of 7 days a week, and all this bitch can do is walk down the street trying to prove an infantile point for money.

                Fuck off.

                [–]tmpjb 6 points7 points  (1 child)

                I am very curious as to what they are going to use the money for. Are they going to use it like an octopus uses ink by throwing money when they harassed to make an escape?

                [–]ThanksRoissy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                Lol, that's a good use actually. They could use it with some ninja training.

                I was thinking they'd use the money to castrate all men.

                [–]theycallme1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

                Now imagine if she was actually attractive.

                [–]Killigraphy 5 points6 points  (0 children)

                So how is one supposed to give a compliment exactly? Or are we to strike the word from the dictionary because even a "hello" may be deemed as "harassment"? The catch 22 here being; if she didn't get any kind of compliment she would hate herself, or think she was ugly, but because she gets some attention she feels "attacked". So as a male, we can't approach or even say hello...its a lose/lose.

                Then they wonder why PUA is so prominent...because it works, and half the time you have to manipulate in order to not be cast into the pit of "creeper'. Albeit that guy with the red hat is definitely a creep, you're a female in city populated by men...of course they're gonna say something.

                Apparently, to hamsters, men have to be quiet, always look up and not at their tits, and speak only when spoken to...fuck that noise, if you're wearing jeans a size too small and or you have big tits, expect to be approached.

                  that one dude walking side by side with her honestly is no joke. 5 fucking minutes of some random dude walking side by side not saying anything, for all we know he could have been waiting for her to walk down an alley alone. Everything else wasn't that bad

                  [–]Echelon64 3 points4 points  (0 children)

                  So the point of this video:

                  -Black people like to catcall

                  -Complimenting others is bad

                  (Apparently humans which are wired for social interaction, socializing is a bad thing)

                  -After 10 hours of walking, there were two legitimately creepy/beta guys.

                  And of the two "creepy" guys, I do wonder if the guy walking next to her was just heading in her general direction and was hoping she would strike a conversation or was he legitimately being bad at game.

                  The second one, damn that was bad.

                  I'm not looking to apologize the two obviously odd encounters, these men need some serious fucking work on their game and make all men look bad.

                  Moral of the story: Women don't like it when they can't pre-filter the men that are able to approach them.

                  So this is the world we want to live in. Okay.

                  • Hey, if I see her in the street and she DARES to say anything to me, I'll immediately assume its harassment.
                  • If shes getting mugged on the street and asks/shouts for help, I'll immediately ignore her requests as harassment and an attempt to make me waste my time which is obviously her trying to harass me in wanting aid. 

                  In fact, I could never help her if she was being brutally attacked, because that would be harassment. I just don't know if my attention would be welcome or not, so I just can't take that chance.

                    I came here to make sure this ridiculous video was posted. Its baffeling how this attention seeking woman got so much attention. If she doesn't want me to talk to her, she shouldn't go out. Wait till she gets old. She'll be bitching why no one talks to her anymore. And regarding that man who followed her for 5 minutes. All it takes is a quick "stop following me" and he'll fuck off.

                    [–]unsureimsure 2 points3 points  (3 children)

                    First off, i am a guy. Second off, i like TRP generally. Third, I like to play devils advocate and generally try to empathize. In this case, it's the intentions that matter. Would you as a man get the amount of attention this female did? Answer is no. So why did she get so much attention? Because she was a female. About half the responses were clearly from people who found her attractive or desirable. The other half of the responses can be assumed to have been motivated due to attraction. This assumption can be made because of your own experiences walking around the city. I would say 2 comments from passing strangers might be within normal. But 100? She got that many responses from strangers because of attraction. So what is wrong with being desired? Well, I would imagine it would be annoying fending off persistent guys all day who just want a chance to get in a girls pants. She can be cold and assertive and be labeled a mean person or she could try to lay each of those guys down nicely, which is more time than I am willing to spend if I was dealing with a similar situation. This shit adds up over the years and result in the stereotypical girls you see in the club who gives everyone the cold shoulder. So while the video was slightly artificial because she didnt respond to her callers, I can see how cat callers might be annoying and why this video was made.

                    Tl; dr: How would you feel if people bothered you all day asking to ride the cool bike you just bought? On top of that at least half these people dont give a shit about your current mind state or situation. They just want to ride your fucking bike.

                    Let's change some things up, shall we?

                    "I'm offended by fat women. Every time I walk down the street I see another FUPA, another cankle, another roll. Their size infringes on my personal space. I have the right to go in public and not have my vision assaulted by their bulbous, gelatinous masses. Telling me I shouldn't be offended because it's hard for women to lose weight is femsplaining. Don't tell me not to be offended by fat women, tell women to stop being fat.

                    When I see a fat woman I tell her her appearance is offensive and I ask that fat women donate to a non-profit charity for exercise equipment and healthy nutrition."

                    How much support do you think I'd get?

                    If you notice all those men are how i would say : "bum ass niggas" they were either guys who spend all day standing in front of a corner store or dirty motherfuckers in wife beaters.... No man with any class would give her more than a smile that wasnt returned... She's ungrateful, and mad because men ,who dont interest her ,compliment her all day long.And as we know, women get offended when an ugly guy compliments them. Theres women whobwould die for that attention... Yet shes being harassed, sorry you look fuckable.

                    [–]Snivellious 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                    The short take on this is the economic one. A bunch of guys see an attractive woman. They have a small chance of a good payoff by hitting on her, a large chance of a slightly good one (validation from interacting with her), and effectively no chance of a bad one (she turns out to be psycho and knifes them, or maybe shames them with a GoPro).

                    Donating to some mythical cause isn't going to change this. Bitching about it with a GoPro isn't going to change it. No one smart would think it would. This leaves us with a question: are the people behind this stupid, are they greedy, or are they pushing a different agenda for which this is a good fundraiser?

                    Regardless of the answer, the econ/game theory analysis here really ought to be clear enough to sink this inane charity.

                    In most parts of the world the women would be glad to get this attention. What is it about western women that they consider compliments to be insults? What is it about western women that they don't want me to find them attractive?

                    [–]Kypriako 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                    why this video is absolutely BS.

                    1: The statistic is most likely false. 100 verbal harassments in 10 hours equates to a verbal harassment every 6 minutes. Now I know from what I've been told from my mom, aunts and girlfriends that they do get cat-called but usually it's very uncommon and never happens once every 6 minutes. This is the type of exaggerated statistic (like the 1 in 5) to make women afraid of wanting to walk outside and to make men look like spawns of Satan.

                    2: Feminist have no fucking idea how social interaction work. When my dad met my mom, when my grandfather met my grandmother, when my uncle met my aunt, they weren't in social gatherings. Guys meet girls in malls, libraries, shops, and even on the sidewalk as well. Feminist are acting as if a guy wanting to talk to you are potential murderer rapist that want to take you to an isolated area so they can commit their heinous crime. Feminist should talk to their parents and see how they met each other and I can bet it would be what feminist would describe as verbal harassment.

                    Also, you have to note that when most guys can't get a girl because they are shy and quiet. They would told to "be confident" and now being confident is apparently street harassment.

                    Female here,

                    She shouldn't complain. She gets compliments for just walking around. Geez.

                    That said, I understand her point of view. Walking around in NY is already really scary, and when people you don't know approach you and want to get close, it's VERY SCARY. However, that doesn't change depending on your gender, and she doesn't need to get all hyped up thinking it's some sort of gender thing. Damn. Take a compliment.

AND to ask for donations?! for what? biggest WTF i've read all week. how are these donations going to help the largely troubling issue at hand here? purchase duct tape and stick it on the mouth of "harassers"?

                    Wow. This woman is absolutely disgusting. I LOVE getting compliments--granted I'm not hot by any means--but that's exactly what she was getting: COMPLIMENTS and kind sentiments. That's not harassment, and if it is, sign me up to be harassed.

                    How does donating to such a "cause" even make a difference? What would she do with the money? Pay everyone who says something nice to her as long as they never be nice again (bribe nice gentlemen to be assholes?).

                    I mean, I suppose she could donate to feminist organizations, but in North America, all they do is campaign about the media and how it objectifies them, nevermind how we women already do enough to objectify ourselves every day.

                    I'm so sorry you guys have to be hurt for being kind to a stranger. If I said "you look nice today!" to a man on the street, he certainly wouldn't accuse me of harassment. If anything, he'd make a GGG meme and it would make the front page.

                    "how we women already do enough to objectify ourselves every day"

                    Thank you. Most women who are 'objectified' make their own choices to be portrayed that way. It's like the decisions of models, actresses, and porn stars don't count and they were forced to make money showing off how sexy they are.

                    Anyway, to answer your question on what she would do with the donation money: someone in this thread mentioned that the money should be used like squid ink- you throw it at the harassers while you make your escape.

                    Edit: Sometimes I grammar bad.

                    [–]emilyeverafter 7 points8 points  (1 child)

                    It's not like models, actresses, and porn stars are being held at knife point. They're making good money simply for having sexually-arousing genetics (and a degree of talent, more for the actresses)

                    The squid ink idea made me spit out my water. "ATTRACTIVE NINJA ESCAPE MODE ENGAGE".

                    But seriously, I don't understand how my fellow Canadian women complain about being "objectified" and "mistreated".

                    In other areas of the world, women are being denied education and rights. In North America? Men are blamed for everything.

                    Domestic disturbance calls: the man can be covered in bruises, but if the girl has a tiny scratch and claims he "started it" and her attacks were merely self defense, guess who's being arrested? Spoiler alert: it's not the one with a vagina. These North American feminists have NO IDEA what oppression really is. They quote Mia Angelou's words as reasons why they shouldn't shave their armpit hair. It's utterly ridiculous.

                    Do I objectify myself? Hell yes I do. I am not some "independent, proud woman", nor am I a unique snowflake. Just this morning I chose to wear a tank top solely because I knew it shows a bit of cleavage and I enjoy walking around and catching guys looking. It's a huge compliment. It's much less stressful to be admired for what you physically have rather than to feel the pressure of impressing someone with an intellectual conversation.

                    So, hell yes, I use my tits to my advantage, basically fishing for visual "compliments" that boost my confidence. Would I use my femininity to take advantage of a man? Absolutely not. I've gone on dates where a man has insisted to pay for me and I insist we split the bill--not because I'm a femininazi, but because it makes NO SENSE for a man to pay for my food when I would be paid more at a government job since I am a woman (and I have a physical disability.)

                    Hearing a woman ask a man "how about you buy me a drink?" at a bar is disgusting. How about you buy yourself a drink? If you're open to having this man flirt with you, perhaps even have a one night stand, assuming that's his intention, then why are you making him pay for what you are already open to in your mind? Those kinds of girls are being what I like to call "incognito hookers".

                    I apologize, I'm just very passionate about how retardedly uneven gender roles are in this country. Twoxchromosomes makes me want to tear my hair out. THEY RALLY AGAINST CAT-CALLING MEANWHILE IT'S PERFECTLY FINE FOR A WOMAN TO SEDUCTIVELY ASK A MAN TO BUY HER A DRINK (in a tone that suggests "I know you won't say no" nonetheless!)

                    So this was long.

                    I just have a lot of feelings.

                    I'm so sorry--both for the rant and for how awful women can be.

                    [–]ThanksRoissy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                    No, good read, I wish I had more time to respond (maybe tomorrow).

                    Don't ever apologize on behalf of your gender. It's divisive and we're all individuals remember.

                    [–]1aguy01 4 points5 points  (0 children)

                    It's everyday women that regularly objectify themselves. Low cut shirts, short shorts or crack-riding yoga pants that ensure the first thing you notice about her is her sexuality. It's rare enough to even see a girl in a dress nowadays, but when you do it's always low cut. Most women today are sex objects first, people second. Hence why nobody wants to marry them.

                    [–]IThoughtHeWasWithYou 5 points6 points  (2 children)

                    A few different thoughts on this...

                    First: Video text states that she was harassed by members of all types. But it's quite obvious that the overwhelming majority of the comments came from black men. If this particular form of 'harassment' is an issue, then it's not an issue with all men, it's an issue with urban black men.

                    Second: Harassment is certainly a strong term. With a couple of exceptions (namely the guys that followed her and kept talking when she clearly wasn't interested, more on that later) the individual comments weren't that severe. Nonetheless, I can see how women could see this as harassment (or at least something approaching harassment) for at least two reasons. 1) We of all people should recognize that there's a lot more to communication than just words. Sure, many of these comments are superficial complements and greetings. But c'mon guys, the sexual subtext is obvious. These men are not saying 'hello' to every person who walks by. 2) As these 'interactions' pile up, they become more and more annoying, eventually the woman will become so annoyed by having to listen to this that, while any single comment might not be so bad, all comments will be lumped together as a single ongoing trial of 'harassment'.

                    Third: This sort of 'hollering' is decidedly BP behavior. In principle, there's nothing wrong with meeting women on the street. But these guys don't seem to be interested in 'meeting' the woman at all. They're just throwing out these 'complements', putting the woman right on a pedestal based on her looks (a relatively common, baseline trait). Note: the guys that were the most harassing and uncomfortable were the most BP guys shown. One of them was even going on and on about how he was 'ugly'.

                    As to this 'hollering'... I'm not actually sure what the point is. Do they actually expect to meet the woman and start a proper conversation. Are they doing it for attention? Are they trying to be intentionally annoying. Do they see a woman they think looks good and simply can't help but express the feeling bubbling up inside them? (This last one might actually be the most RP reason to do this sort of thing. But then again, having self-control and not being so goddamned affected by women or your environment in general is even more RP.)

                    [–]mikehod 3 points4 points  (4 children)

                    IDK, if I were her I wouldn't want to put up with that shit all day every day either. And if I were alone on the streets I would feel unsafe if I was in her shoes. I can see her point.

                    Classy dudes, and I daresay TRUE red pillers would not catcall some random lady walking down the street. We don't disrespect women (or I don't at least), we know their natures and learn to appreciate them for what they are. And if you know the nature of women, you don't need to be catcallin' some random broad; just appreciate the beauty and let it pass... Chances are she'll react to THAT way better than some jive assed turkey call!

                    New York looks like an interesting place to walk around in. Wouldn't donate though.

                    Plot twist- She had a romantic candlelit dinner that night with the best looking guy who tried to pick her up on the streets during the day.

                    If I had that many complements in a single day, I would be on cloud 9.

                    [–]CriticalThink 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                    Yet another reason that modern feminism should be taken with a grain of salt.

                    "That poor young lady! She's being battered by men throwing complements at her! Her oppression warrants MONETARY DONATIONS!!"

                    What a fucking joke.

                    [–]aa223 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                    What the fuck? I think females becoming a victim to make money is beginning to become a trending profession now. All they have to do is fake the harassment they are getting or blow anything said to them out of proportion, ask for money and that is it they are living the good life based on their gender because every white knight knows that the say to save miladies is a monthly donation to their Patreon accounts.

                    This just popped up on my newsfeed. The peculiar thing is that it's only shared by low SMV girls. They are also the ones commenting on it in a "OMG BEING A GIRL IS SO HARDDDD".

                    Guys just laugh it off, and the hotties are conspicuously absent. It's mind boggling how TRP is viewed as negative, yet is constantly proven the most accurate theory of human behaviour I've come across.

                    [–]1BadgerBurger 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                    I've seen this posted on Facebook. The reactions and discussion between women on this is essentially each woman trying to one-up the other. Reactions include:

                    Comparison to rape -- "i was essentially gang-raped last week by a construction crew"

                    Mentions of it happening while working out: "Happened while I was training for the marathon!" and "this happens countless times while I'm jogging."

                    Throw in an admission that it would've been okay from attractive guys: "Right! Because I am really staying in shape for these guys! Total catches!"

                    And finally, the ultimate complanabrag: "I am sick of being yelled at that I'm 'hot.'"

                    Throw in another aspect of this -- this shit really doesn't happen much all in respectable suburbs and good neighborhoods. I'd venture a guess that this is exceedingly rare on the cul-de-sacs of Bethesda, or the relatively calm streets of the Upper East Side. There's a bit of I'm an urban explorer! behind these complaints.

                    [–]absoluteskeptic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                    Funny thing is, in Tokyo a very sexy lady can walk around all day and most likely get no attention (aside from a few train stations where professional scouts are looking for new prostitutes).

                    All of the western women I've met complain they get no attention in Japan. Most of them look like 7s or better. Unless they already have a boyfriend (met in America), they complain and leave fairly bitter of Japanese society. The techniques they learned in the West don't work well in Japan. They also don't get their daily dose of compliments from random strangers.

                    Most people hook up via friends and family. Most women will ignore a complete stranger, so that method isn't used much by 'good guys.' Obviously, in NYC enough women reply to strangers for it to have some effectiveness, otherwise these men wouldn't act as they do.

                    You can't blame these men, if you don't blame some women, too.

                    I watched some of the bullshit video and a lot of the comments where just "hey beautiful" or "God bless you, have a good day". That's what they call harassment? Stuck up and self entitled. Gotta love feminists.

                    366 comments as of this post and not one mention of a solution: Jilbāb (islamic female attire, Wikipedia description: 'The modern jilbāb covers the entire body, except for hands, face, and head.' ).

                    Covered right up in that attire will silence those comments rather well. Of course; this woman will hamster her way out of wearing that sort of attire as all she wanted from this video was attention and validation.

                    No offense intended to Islamic readers; just using that as a clothing example.

                    And in those 10 hours nobody tried to introduce himself properly? I hardly believe that, but of course it's not in the video.

                    Keep in mind that she's a hired "actress" with her own page. So the irony here being; a man hired a woman to be eye candy so that she could bait males, and somehow make people donate to some unknown fund.

                    The thing is, as someone who's spent a lot of time in big cities, I'm confident at least half of those people are just after money and are complimenting her (aka harassment) right before they ask her for money.

                    So as I'm watching this report on TV with my dad, he shakes his head and walks by me. I'm anticipating a red pill comment from him, but instead he responds with "man women have it tough in this world"

                    Another video that proves that blacks have balls. Sure, a lot of them were beta in their approach and comments but some knew what they were about. If a bitch chooses to wear tight clothes to emphasize her ass and tits she's not only outright challenging males but sexually harassing them. The only natural reaction is to approach her or say something sexual or to those who are more daring just GRAB DAT ASS and teach her a lesson.

                    I'm tired of white 'men' who only have the balls to talk to females on the streets when they're drunk and in a group of equally drunken psychologically castrated assclowns.

                    Props to dem niggaz for being active and just not giving a fuck about being rejected. Judging by her love of attention whoring on Facebook, the spoiled yenta deserved much worse than "you're beautiful" and "have a nice day".

                    New York is full weird fuckos. I feel sorry for the chick, knowing that she cant walk around without a human pop up ad coming up to her. She gotta try to look more like chewbacca rather than wearing a tight ass shirt thoguh. But damn most of these cat callers were black though..that means we should avoid these part of NY? Women don't have this problem were I live though...
