ha, nice. another celebrity who realizes that he doesn't need to pander to the SJWs to remain famous.

[–]Endorsed ContributorRedPillDad 131 points132 points  (4 children)

He handled it like a pro, without having to beg forgiveness or pull out his race card.

He points out an interesting fact: A woman has instant minor celebrity status because...

Youth + Beauty + Pussy = Celebrity to a thirsty man

[–]TRPingBalls[S] 99 points100 points  (3 children)

I really do respect him for standing his ground and refusing to sidestep the point by pointing out that as a black man, he probably gets harassed way more, and in more serious ways. None of that oppression Olympics bullshit.

[–]RockTurgidson 70 points71 points  (2 children)

Seriously. As a black dude, I'd take getting verbally assaulted with a "God bless" and "Good morning" or two over being harassed by the police.

[–]Nydusurmainus 29 points30 points  (28 children)

The experiment was worth nothing anyway. They did it with one really hot chick all done up like she was going somewhere. Do it with an average woman dressed like she is going to work or some shit

[–]myhipsi 35 points36 points  (4 children)

Not only that, but all of the "harassment" came from, what appeared to be, lower class individuals. If she had done this on Wall St. or Fifth avenue (or anywhere else where most people have a modicum of self respect) she likely would not have gotten so much as a "hello".

[–]1Dev_on 16 points17 points  (1 child)

that and for any reasonable person to consider 99% of it harassment, they'd have to be a bitter prick who hates people.

but it's easy for those who may have gotten real (or imagined) harassment to fill the gaps with their own experience. No one really is talking about her, they are pretending it's them in that movie

[–]CryptoManbeard 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Also factor in that she diluted 10 hours of footage into a few minutes. 10 hours is a long fucking time to walk around a city, if you averaged it out that's like a "cat call" every 15 minutes. And some of her footage was shit like , "Have a nice day!" and "You're beautiful."

Oh the horror....

[–]mister_barfly75 51 points52 points  (19 children)

That was not a really hot chick.

[–]muyuu 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I thought she was pretty average, but wearing super-tight jeans on a big butt in the ghetto is always going to attract some attention.

[–]Kellermann 45 points46 points  (11 children)

5/10 White standards or 8/10 Black standardss

[–]through_a_ways 18 points19 points  (0 children)

She was in a ghetto place, and we never saw what her butt looked like.

Enough said.

[–]KenuR 4 points5 points  (8 children)

Really? You guys must have super high standards, because she's at least a 7 in my book. Not that it matters, just saying.

[–]vanel 4 points5 points  (5 children)

7/10?

She's certainly not unattractive, but I think that's being generous. She's curvy in all the right places, I think that adds a lot to her attractiveness, but her face is overwhelmingly average.

[–]KenuR 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Her face is average, but if you look at the whole package then she is definitely a 7 to me.

[–]back_in_towns 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yup. 7/10, but 10/10 would hit it repeatedly. Source: am black.

[–]Bascome 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Yeah with makeup and from a distance while moving quickly past me with confident strides and extremely tight clothing making her ample boobs bounce and her butt the focus of my attention in public and not a club she is totally a 7....

I can make another video with the same girl where no one says shit in 10 hours.

[–]2 Endorsed Contributorvengefully_yours 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Put a sweatshirt on her that covers her curves, she will be lucky to get a hello.

[–]Batemanx 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Im black and didnt find her anything special

[–]xxhamudxx -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I disagree and think it's subjective as fuck.

[–]hisgrossness 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I've always thought it was polite to acknowledge and compliment either the natural beauty of a person, or the beauty they have obviously put the effort into achieving. (i.e. all done up) I think tone is probably very important and also your own looks come into play as well. (a complement generally is perceived as better if it is coming from someone who the compliment is also true of)

[–]Bascome 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How fucking tight a t shirt can you find is what i was thinking?

[–]gohammer3 149 points150 points  (64 children)

"Street Harrasment is a human rights issue!"

I'm literally baffled at how far this is going.

[–]666Evo 95 points96 points  (46 children)

Saying someone in the street is beautiful "helps make rape okay and lets rapists get away with their crime".
This is utter insanity!

[–][deleted]  (42 children)

    [–]666Evo 75 points76 points  (22 children)

    I think I've read it around here before. It's simply a means for women to pre-decline unwanted advances from (her perception of) average Joe. She's entitled to a 9-10, so these 6-8's that are trying to chat her up? Ew.

    A man can talk to a stranger, as long as his SMV is significantly higher than hers. Equal to, or lower than? That's rape, son.

    "Where have all the good men gone??"

    [–]occupythekitchen 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    if they speak they wont get sex from their wife, if they cheat they'll pay alimony and lose custody. We dealt women a royal flush and are still trying to play poker with them.....

    [–]Zaorish9 18 points19 points  (4 children)

    As I get older and more experienced I see this more and more. When I was a kid I stifled my desire to say hi to cute waitresses/girls on the train, absolutely certain somehow it would be "sexual harassment" and I would be a creep/be put in jail. then I was routinely baffled and humiliated and angered when good-looking guys would do the exact same thing and be met with giggles. I struggle to remember even now how that idea got into my head.

    [–]dawg826 13 points14 points  (3 children)

    It's just cultural osmosis. How many movies/shows depict the alpha jock being direct and dominant with the chick, only for her to brush him aside for the beta male lead character who looks on and is somehow "different" from all the other guys. She proceeds to be sexually forward with him instead. How many times does this narrative play out in real life? Never, but this seems correct to impressionable youths.

    [–]rpkarma 9 points10 points  (2 children)

    Hey now, it did play out like that for me when I was a geek in highschool. However, I was attractive physically, just a bit shy, and she was a bit of a crazy slut. I'm glad she did though, as that was what made me begin to be a man.

    [–]jova33 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    I would've stayed a virgin if it weren't for a crazy slut.

    [–]dawg826 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I assume you understand this is the exception, and not the rule. The fantasy depiction depicts it as the opposite.

    [–]paynehouse 14 points15 points  (11 children)

    Exactly, this whole thing is the equivalent of a man complaining that ugly woman always come onto him. It's like, it sucks for him, but nobody cares.

    [–]666Evo 16 points17 points  (9 children)

    And it doesn't even suck that bad. It's a compliment that, multiplied over time, eventually gets a little annoying.
    I'm so sorry that you get complimented so often that it's become annoying... perhaps you could adjust your frame of reference and understand that shit ain't that bad.

    [–]paynehouse 6 points7 points  (4 children)

    Haha seriously, adjust something! It's like women are too stubborn to change their ways. Or they think they are entitled to do whatever the fuck they want. I'm sorry women, but sometimes you have to change things yourself in life instead of complaining.

    Instead of fixing the problem herself, this woman literally walked around aimlessly for ten hours in NYC. WTF!!!

    [–]666Evo 7 points8 points  (2 children)

    That's it though. It's not a problem. It's only a problem because of the self centred-ness that's so prevalent these days.

    Take a second to think that you got compliments (and admittedly, a couple of weirdos that would be a little intimidating) for 10 hours. Someone else, somewhere in the world, got beaten for the majority of those 10 hours. Someone in NYC was more than likely actually raped during that 10 hours (Probably. Don't have any stats to back this up).

    I get it. It's a little annoying. But understand you have a certain (dare I say, privileged) frame of reference.

    [–]foldpak111 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Women in Kyrgyzstan were getting kidnapped and forced to marry while you complained about how are you's. Awesome.

    [–]paynehouse 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Yeah problems are completely relative.

    [–]mtersen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Exactly! They think they are entitled to act however they want and everything must change to suit them.

    [–]1Ill_mumble_that 4 points5 points  (1 child)

    Here the thing too. These same women will go out in Yoga pants and skin-grabbing tops in an attempt to show off their figure. Their attire is screaming: "I'm fertile, come talk to me." But if you aren't a rich tall handsome confident male celebrity then its harassment to accept her public invitation.

    [–]TehFuggernaut 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I loved when ugly chicks would be super forward with me when I was younger. Its flattering, and boosted my ego.

    Even these days, I started chatting up a girl at a bar just because (in a LTR), and her 4 friends joined in, and they all were trying to flirt with me and outdo their other friends. It was super flattering, but none of them were extremely attractive.

    [–]LasherDeviance 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Honestly if only ugly hoes came onto me, I would take advantage of that shit and take all of those hoes money.

    I would be the"Ugly Bitch King".

    Every situation has an advantage, the point is to find out what that advantage is and exploit it.

    [–]fuckeh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I'm pretty sure the girl in the video met her boyfriend on a train. He took an empty seat next to her and got her number. Personally I think that's actually kinda worse since you're on a moving train, it's almost like she's stuck there. On the street she can just keep walking.

    Can't remember if it's the NYC girl or the one that dressed like a hooker in Detroit.

    [–]WenisOfLore 13 points14 points  (2 children)

    And they wonder why men lean on technology and the workplace to get to know women...

    [–]OsoFeo 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    men lean on ... the workplace to get to know women...

    But that's sexual harassment!

    [–]waynebradysworld 25 points26 points  (5 children)

    Morning after regret isn't rape. Groping isnt rape. Harassment isn't rapr .

    Rape is when someone breaks into your sisters house, destroys her belongings, fucks her and beats her unconscious... Ultimately leading to her suicide.

    Rape is when a kiddy fiddler fucks some young lad, permanently disfiguring his anus and leaving scars up and down his legs.

    climbs off soapbox

    [–]heist_of_saint_graft 8 points9 points  (2 children)

    permanently disfiguring his anus

    You got on a soapbox to say that?

    [–]Smekiz 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    more PSAs should contain the word "anus".

    [–]limit_breaker 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Those four words are worth a soapbox.

    [–]occupythekitchen 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    I read that green text too!

    [–]mrheh 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    I'll be honest all the good looking girls I know (>8) don't give a shit for the most part. Being a good looking women is the equivalent of a real life super power, I have no pitty for them.

    [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    It's the 6s and 7s who complain about this type of shit. It's their way of humblebragging. Women who are actually hot tend to enjoy and expect attention from men, not freak out and call it rape.

    [–]yourenogood 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    What is the end game, make it illegal for men to talk to strangers?

    Bingo.
    From the linked article:

    It ultimately reveals that Che does not understand what is so problematic about street harassment: Men feeling entitled to direct their unsolicited thoughts at women

    Men only have the right to speak when allowed to, like a feudal age serf or a child in school.

    [–]cynwrig 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    Exactly.

    What instead of a "hi beautiful" they give you an energy drink and claim that it helps you 'run faster and jump higher'. Is that harrassment?

    [–]limit_breaker 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    I'm not a part of your system!

    [–]nrjk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    What is the end game, make it illegal for men to talk to strangers?

    One brilliant feminist, after trying and failing in the courts, will suggest all women wear one of these as it will be the only way to keep men from objectifying women. They will come in fall and summer patterns!

    [–]occupythekitchen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    well it's been building up, it started with them saying eww to gross to guys who approached and they didn't like now it's evolved to be rape. We need to reinstate the patriarchy this is going too far. Women just want to push things in their direction and we all can agree lots of vocal women are fucking crazy

    [–]back_in_towns 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    They've considered using women-only railcars on UK metro and elsewhere. Imagine the possibilities...

    [–]wheresmysmokes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    My ultimate interest would be for people who catcall to just go "hmmm. I didn't know it bothered girls that bad, when I tell them they look beautiful". That's never going to happen when you start accusing men of advocating rape or trying to display their power over women. Automatically people are going to defend their character, instead of listening to the message. I wonder what would happen if the message presented as just "hey, it's not actually that polite, guys. No big deal or hard feelings. Just thought you should know"?

    [–]OsoFeo 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    In other news, poor Africans are still dying, and civilians in the middle east are still getting blown up.

    [–]wheresmysmokes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    These hyperbolic statements are doing nothing for women's rights. I ultimately think that street harassment can be a problem, especially when I'm stuck on the bus or at a bus stop and tell the person no, but they keep going. These people think by "sticking to their guns" and saying that none of this is okay, they're making a point. What they are doing is refusing to acknowledge the reality that some comments by strangers are not as bad as others and they are using blanket definitions so they can increase the quantity. Instead of saying that it doesn't take more than just a few really graphic scary statements to freak us out for months, they say that all of it is bad and a power play, etc. By doing this all credibility is lost.

    [–]Ninja0573 30 points31 points  (2 children)

    I grew up in a time and place where NOT nodding or smiling, with a polite 'hello' or 'g'day' while walking past a stranger on the street felt rude and awkward.

    I'm only 34. Suddenly we're being told it's harassment. What the fuck.

    [–]JudgeRedPill 20 points21 points  (1 child)

    "Something something male gaze."

    I swear, these feminists have got girls completely paranoid about anything men do, ever, these days.

    [–]1johnnight 15 points16 points  (0 children)

    We need Emma Watson to make a speech at the UN about this.

    [–]john-b 24 points25 points  (1 child)

    Brazilian street mob beat a woman minding her own business to death that looked similar to a circulating facebook post of a woman who was an alleged witch that stole children. Men are increasingly being illegally arrested, beaten, sometimes killed, threatened to be killed by the police all across America. Thousands starve around the world every day for what ever reason.

    Yet entitled pig-tails-when-it-suits-them 1st world feminists are marching to war because some bored guys standing on the sidewalk said hi to a woman.

    You cannot and should not engage with hardcore feminists. Their brain is compromised, and I dare say they're not even human at this point. Anyone who kowtows to hardcore feminists in any way for any reason is a complete beta-omega.

    [–]CriticalThink 11 points12 points  (3 children)

    Seriously. I want to laugh at people trying to make a big issue out of "street harassment", but then I realize that this is actually gaining traction in feminist circles and they're actually taking this shit seriously. Shit like this makes me wonder how the fuck grown adults who are that stupid make it through this life.

    [–]21kasvoinenmies 8 points9 points  (1 child)

    This video was mentioned on the national news last night in Finland. I don't understand how it could even be relevant for us. Population density is 14 people/sq kilometer. Nobody ever speaks to strangers. There isn't even such thing as Cat calling in our culture and still women feel that this is something they need to worry about.

    [–]wheresmysmokes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    There isn't even such thing as Cat calling in our culture

    I wish the feminist leaders and SJWs would look for exceptions like this. They could then acknowledge that street harassment is specific to culture and also occurs in densely populated areas where women will pass a remarkably larger population on a daily basis and subsequently have higher chances of running into some weirdos.

    [–]1ThumpNuts 8 points9 points  (0 children)

    Wait til Hillary gets elected... you ain't seen nothing yet.

    [–]bitchdantkillmyvibe 6 points7 points  (3 children)

    And it will continue to keep going further and further, and we should just let it. Let this insanity go all the way to its illogical conclusion, and allow society to see first hand how retarded the ramifications of such thinking will produce. Then we'll all start decrying it. Shit like this happens all the time in society, it always goes too far, and then just produces a reactionary response just as fanatical. So it goes and goes and goes.

    [–]bookhockey24 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    How many innocent men will be incarcerated or their lives otherwise destroyed before we reach that endpoint? And yet you're right, because I don't see this being fixed any other way.

    [–]bitchdantkillmyvibe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    All you can do is educate yourself and your brothers around you... Those who will listen anyway. Those who are ready to be unplugged. All you can do is make sure you don't end up another one of these victims.

    [–]jova33 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Look at Japan. If you're even accused of sexual assault, you're guilty. They've created gender assigned subway cars because if this false sense of an out of control rape culture.

    [–]neveragoodtime 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    It absolutely is a human rights issue. I have the constitutional right to free speech in public. I can say anything I feel in public, even if it offends, upsets, or embarrasses some other person. I have the right to call a girl beautiful, ask her to smile on the street, or tell her nice ass, and she can do nothing about it. God Bless 'merica.

    They're not going to gain any traction on this issue. Besides being clearly racist video against blacks, their culture, and their neighborhoods, and aimed at men in poverty, they would need to amend the US constitution. I don't have the right to say something that puts her in danger, threaten her physically, or stick my dick in her without her permission. Feminists think there's a thin line between paying a girl a compliment and sticking your dick in her mouth. And to some degree, they're right. But if some feminist was picked up on the street, seduced, and banged, that's not rape, that's regret.

    [–]SeekingAlpha 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I saw a commenter in another sub refer to the woman in the video being in a "public, non-social space". I can't even...

    I think drivel is giving it too much credit.

    [–]john-b 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    People are starting to rebel against it everywhere, now that it's reached a point of utter ridiculousness. It was much more subtle in the 90s, but now that we're in 2014 it's illogical, retarded true self has become exposed with garbage like this. Hopefully the feminist movement destroys itself which if present conditions are any indication, just might happen.

    This is the perfect response to people who claim that society is getting more misogynist with time. It disproves her point and calls the pointmaker ignorant and a slut.

    [–]R3dTim 109 points110 points  (7 children)

    Militant feminists often seek consensus by deletion: they delete you out of the picture until they have a consensus. So if Che is speaking his mind they'll flood the TV office with nasty letters until Che is no longer around, but they'll happily claim they're "open minded and tolerant."

    [–]Position5hero 65 points66 points  (0 children)

    They are open minded and tolerant.

    Open minded to suggestions about how to get him off the air, and tolerant of going to extreme lengths to censor him

    [–]16 Endorsed ContributorCyralea 28 points29 points  (1 child)

    Open-minded and tolerant, so long as your ideas are ones selected from this pre-approved list.

    [–]WoodFireEarthWater 20 points21 points  (2 children)

    That's basically "political correctness" in a nutshell - the tool of the far left to try to control speech and even thought itself.

    [–]RedPill115 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    That's basically "political correctness" in a nutshell - the tool of the far left to try to control speech and even thought itself.

    True. But remind me of the concept of heresy from the religious right again. The left is a lot more hypocritical about it though, claiming they're for "freedom of speech" then doing the opposite.

    [–]RockTurgidson 39 points40 points  (5 children)

    That last response is on point as fuck. Ironically, the ability to easily spread ideas through social media has become the strongest force of censorship ever seen on planet Earth.

    One small comment can have its impact magnified in an instant through hundreds of retweets, and before you know it you'll have the PC thought police banging your door down and firing you from whatever position you had.

    We need to be more willing to let certain less important things slide. Stop crucifying people for mere words. Watch their actions over a period of time. I'm tired of it being en vogue to string people up over a word or two and watch the media gleefully roast them over an open fire.

    [–]moralprolapse 21 points22 points  (3 children)

    This story also reminds me of the tropes about how "I got the breast implants for me, not men! Pervert." Or, "just because I'm dressed this way...!"

    What does that mean? You like carrying extra weight in your upper torso for no practical purpose, since it has nothing to do with how men view you? You wear a shirt 3 sizes too small because it's more comfortable?

    So, you never want a cute, successful guy in a nice suit to approach you and compliment you or ask you out?

    Attention from a handsome guy is flattering. From a guy you have no interest in, I guess it's harassment.

    [–]5 Endorsed Contributorgekkozorz 13 points14 points  (2 children)

    They're trying to have their cake and eat it too. They want to be able to present the goods so DT's can see something they like, but they also don't want to be judged as slutty.

    So they dress slutty, then try to do Jedi mind tricks on us - "I'm not actually a slut, I'm doing this for me. These are not the boobs you're looking for."

    [–]Endorsed ContributorRS73 25 points26 points  (0 children)

    Stop crucifying people for mere words.

    Controlling language as a means to control people - that's the whole point. That's at the heart of all the "critical theory" Frankfurt School feminist shit that runs Western universities and most media.

    "Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to." - Theodore Dalrymple

    [–]Facednectar 20 points21 points  (1 child)

    People sure like to bitch about things. I can't believe this video is getting so much attention...good on Michael Che for not buying into the bullshit. You walk around an urban city for 10 hours with people outside, you are going to be approached/talked to/"harassed" no matter what gender/race/ethnicity you are.

      A fat near-wall woman talking about how not being approached by high quality males is harassment, why am I not surprised?

      [–]wheresmysmokes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      White liberals don't see race,

      Exactly, they won't acknowledge race, but are still having reactions to racial differences. But it's okay to talk about men, so they can say this is a "male" problem. It's disingenuous, makes males defensive, doesn't actually identify the cause, and therefore it's an emotional argument and completely lacks objective rationality. That's always a good way to get your 'opponent' to change their mind, right?

      [–]_Fuck_The_Steelers_ 30 points31 points  (24 children)

      That NYC video is what made was stupid as fuck. She walked around for 10 hours to get to get those responses. If anyone walks around a big city they are going to get fucked with regardless of gender. There were like 2 responses i think that were genuinely creepy the other were just hi and stuff like that.

      How the fuck is saying hi harassment?

      [–]TRPingBalls[S] 34 points35 points  (13 children)

      Not to mention, like Scott Adams pointed out, getting two minutes total of people talking to you from 10 hours of filming isn't all that impressive.

      [–]DidiDoThat1 34 points35 points  (10 children)

      Not to mention they go out of the way to put in text that she received harassment from all "backgrounds" of men. Basically they showed two minutes of black guys talking to a girl walking through bad parts of the city but they didn't want to come off as racist. Watch the video again. They want to call this a male problem because they know that calling it what it really is will be met with hostility because SJW's won't let you attack POC. It's 2014, people should have the balls to come out and say that there is a culture in the black community where acting "hood" is important and gives you street cred. The makers of the video are cowards, I'm not on a racist witch hunt. The results are what they are based on the video, they just refuse to acknowledge it because calling all men creeps is ok, calling black men creeps is racist and wrong.

        Oh no you dih-unt! So true. So the video showed what happens in ghetto areas populated by poor black men. Her own god damn boyfriend picked her up this way on a train, but isn't a poor black man so she swooned. Lol

        2 minutes out of 600, so she was "harassment free" for 598 minutes. Stupid as fuck and it's actually making traction, blows my mind.

        [–]slangtooth 10 points11 points  (0 children)

        99.66% Harassment Free. Comments point out that some of the 2 minutes were "hey", or something that should be considered friendly, or at worst, inquisitive, not harassment.

        There may have been 1 or 2 actually creepy comments, and I think it is important to realize there are those individuals out there that do harass, but there needs to be a realization that there is a difference between these, and that, overall, the problem of harassment is much, much, much, much much much much smaller than it is being represented.

        [–]Nespos 6 points7 points  (0 children)

        I wonder how many motor vehicle collisions would occur multiple times over the course of walking for 10 hours in NYC. Or verbal/physical altercations. Or anything. I mean, it's a perfectly reasonable amount of time to walk. We should also take their word that there were hundreds of instances that weren't in the video, even though the whole point was to have video evidence.

        [–]foldpak111 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        According to everyone, as a white male, I'm apparently a god to society. I deal with drunk assholes trying their luck, gay guys flirting with me, and girl eye fuckin me. I get the same amount of attention she does, just different kind of attention. It's still unwanted, but that's the cost of living in society. Move to a tiny town if you want to be left alone.

        It's odd that the side that constantly calls for a "conversation" on these issues immediately tries to shut down anyone talking about it in a way they don't approve of.

        Women want validation. You give validation without sex? You're a slut.

        We need to start slut shaming each other.

        [–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (3 children)

        What really irritates me is how selective it is. I've seen the videos and we all know damn well that if the guy saying it is high SMV then it's cute and offbeat but if it's a guy with low SMV its creepy and intimidating.

        We know damn well this cunt would wet her panties if her favorite youtube celeb said "we got $1000 here!"

        [–]TRPingBalls[S] 14 points15 points  (2 children)

        I'd wager that at least one high SMV guy catcalled her and she had to edit it out to preserve her argument.

        [–]bitchdantkillmyvibe 6 points7 points  (0 children)

        I doubt it.. She was ugly as fuck. She attracted men equal to her SMV and she don't like that! So... harassment. This is the heart of all this 'street harrassment bullshit'. Average looking women are angry at the attention they get from similarly average men.

        It's all really just a coping mechanism for sub par attractive women who feel entitled to attention from men with high SMV when theirs is in fact quite low. You never see really attractive women complaining about harassment or jumping on any of this feminist bandwagon bullshit, because they are mostly receiving the attention from desirable men.

        Our media will be policed for "hate speech" to the point of being state-run. Everyone will have to go in lockstep with the feminist party line, with counter-revolutionary "sexist" speech and thought criminalized (as they're trying to push in Sweden). And all the while feminists will be playing the victims harder and harder. As Mencken said: "Fascism will come to America, in the guise of anti-Fascism."

        Holly Kearl, founder of the nonprofit Stop Street Harassment, has described how promoting a culture of catcalling can lead to even more severe problems. "The acceptance of street harassment, the portrayal of it as a compliment or a joke, creates a culture where it is normal to disrespect someone or to comment on them or to touch them without their consent," she told Ebony last year. "That culture helps make rape okay and lets rapists get away with their crime."

        [–]-Tyler_Durden- 8 points9 points  (0 children)

        Talk to a post wall woman who isn't getting this attention anymore; as soon as this "harassment" stops they freak out and get depressed. When their limited beauty fades and people start treating them like men in every day encounters, they think people are attacking them. Most young women don't realize how alone and invisible most men are. This realization hits them like a ton of bricks when they hit the wall.

        [–]Shadoscuro 7 points8 points  (0 children)

        I know context matters but what is the big deal with cat calling? Sure if a woman's in a dark alley and some guy starts yelling/following her, but that's more stalking territory anyways.

        At least in my experience it's out at bars and a dude walking by whistles or pays a vulgar compliment and the girl scoffs or replies pig or some variation. But with all the recent talk you'd think women were about to lose voting rights or some shit.

        [–]slfnflctd 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        This is honestly one of the biggest critiques I have of a lot of 'movements', modern feminism included. Show me in a compelling, measurable way how much depth of suffering you are reducing in the world. Show me. Now, explain to me why that's more important than ending child slave labor in unsafe, disease-infested environments.

        To a point, I recognize that the struggle for a truly better world encompasses many battlefronts, and that different people are equipped for different tasks (not all of which are as clearly impactful, at least in the short run), but a lot of this whitewashed do-gooderism is more of a pathetic failure to prioritize effectiveness over aesthetics than anything else. Due to the resentment this creates, it's almost worse than doing nothing at all sometimes.

        "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." -John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton

        Women are pursuing their ultimate sexual strategy--control of betas access to alphas. This already happens but until recently is has not been so overt.

        If a woman doesn't like your advance she'll usually act annoyed. Attractive men tend to get rejected less and even pursued. If most "average" men are afraid to approach due to being labeled a misogynist (jailed in the future), the more attractive men will flourish. Control.

        This already happens on a less overt level since nowadays it seems natural to pose men as threats and "bad". Look at villains in most subject matter--men.

        [–]nrjk 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        This is the moment the article goes completely retarded...there's one in every article.

        Street harassment is a human rights issue, according to activists fighting against it. Holly Kearl, founder of the nonprofit Stop Street Harassment, has described how promoting a culture of catcalling can lead to even more severe problems.

        Art Programs in schools are a human rights issue to a musician and artist.

        An unregulated oil company is a human right's issue to a environmentalist and an oil salesman.

        A shortage of gerbil food is a human rights issue to a gerbil salesmen and a PETA member.

        Either everything is a human right's issue or nothing is, but just because a cause has "activists" doesn't make their issue a human right's issue. Seriously is there some Bureau of Street Harassment at Feminism, Inc.? Or is the ole HuffPo not wanting to call them feminists?

        "The acceptance of street harassment, the portrayal of it as a compliment or a joke, creates a culture where it is normal to disrespect someone or to comment on them or to touch them without their consent," she told Ebony last year. "That culture helps make rape okay and lets rapists get away with their crime."

        Jesus. H. Christ. That's the most ridiculous statement. Any logic applied to it would get sucked into it's black hole of stupidity.

        I thought the SJW mindset was that all cultures were completely equal and beautiful...A majority of the men in the video are either Black or Hispanic and are in a lower income area. Are the SJW criticizing them based on their race or socioeconomic level? No, it's solely on their gender...Aren't they being somewhat classist and elitist by judging POC in their neighborhood.

        It would be a completely different video if she were in a small town somewhere where there is not a high concentration of guys who do this. Also, the size of a city means more people are just another face in the crowd which would perpetuate such behavior. But women nationwide will identify with it (as if they all live in big cities are 8-10's) because the few times they thought a guy was looking at them then "It's because it's, like, literally the same thing.

        [–]KingKKKershaw 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        "Cat Calling" is such a complete "First World Problem" if I've ever seen one. There are parts of the world where women's genitals are being mutilated, and "feminists" are focused on...cat calling? You're using that manpower and time to cut down on guys who compliment you randomly on the street? Fuck out of here.

        Every single woman who's "offended" by cat calling would be MORE offended if they were treated like an ugly girl or man for a day.

        [–]apackofwankers 3 points4 points  (1 child)

        I've been living in a 3rd world tourist resort for the last 8 years. One feature of life here is that the locals never miss an opportunity to try to sell you something. You can't walk 10 paces without being offered pussy, cocaine, cigars, jewelry, t-shirts or some other crap. The worst are the beach vendors, who will happily interrupt your romantic moment, conversation, dinner or anything else, in order to pitch their wares. At first, I was polite, saying "no thank you". After a while, I would simply wave them away like flies. Eventually I would put my hand on my weapon and tell them to fuck off.

        Individually, each offer is perfectly fine, but after 8 years of being treated like a walking wallet many times per day, I was beginning to lose it.

        A lot of people advised me to just ignore them, but I find that ignoring people costs me energy. Its better to just be hostile than to repress and ignore.

        There is no solution to the problem. The locals are desperately poor and what they do, works. Short of banning tourists from spending money on beach vendors and hustlers, the economics of the situation dictates the behavior.

        So, this experience has helped me understand why women might get sick of men constantly pitching them.

        That said, I have also learned from those vendors never to take no for an answer.

        Its the nature of men to pitch women, and the nature of women to receive pitches. Short of ensuring every man has pussy all the time, the situation won't change.

        [–]thisjibberjabber 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        I've experienced that too.

        I did find that after having been there a few days, getting down the street without getting bothered got a lot easier. It was a matter of walking purposefully and not making eye contact - not looking like the fresh off the plane low hanging fruit tourist. But I'm sure you figured that out also, and it doesn't help with being a fixed target hanging out on the beach.

        One solution is to go to a resort that the local rich people go to. There tends to be a lot less annoying hawking going on.

        [–]ElKod 2 points3 points  (0 children)

        The funniest thing about this and I cannot share that on facebook, is that those are all BP males.. Thought from a young age that if they always compliment the women they want, eventually one of them is gonna come and be like "Ok, you're not like the others". Also, it makes them look very macho to their friends "Look, I can talk to these girls the same way I do in the club and don't get punched"

        I imagine that if a true redpiller actually sees a girl he likes walking on the street, he'd ask a question, make small talk and then tell her he'd love to see her again if she wants to give him her number or take his...... One woman at a time, respectfully

        [–]Hank711 2 points3 points  (1 child)

        It ultimately reveals that Che does not understand what is so problematic about street harassment: Men feeling entitled to direct their unsolicited thoughts at women — often but not limited to comments on their appearance or asking them to smile.

        I literally lol'd at this. I want nothing more than for some fem-nazi to say that to me so I can reply: "Yeah, I wish women would stop feeling that way towards men."

        I've been skeptical of TRP idea that feminism wants to oppress men. I thought they just wanted to destroy the natural tendencies of sex and gender. I guess I was wrong.

        [–]scamper_22 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        I watched the video after all the drama. This is what I noticed.

        Most of the guys were just trying to chat her up. "Hey beautiful..." Things I would consider nothing but complementary and pretty not intrusive.

        There were definitely a few that were a bit more annoying/creepy in terms following her.

        That all said,it really is the neighborhood she is walking in. I live in a major city (Not New York) and don't see that much unless you're in the club district. What's funny is my wife is super 'anti-racist', so I point out that it's a heavy ghetto population with many 'black folks'. And I mention, if any of those guys were in a different neighborhood on their own, I've seen a lot of girls find that 'hey baby, hey beautiful' stuff very attractive. They like being talked to. She smiled and chuckled knowing it is true.

        It just so happened this was in a low-class neighborhood so there was probably a lot more of that happening with a lot less class.

        [–]FerrusMan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        I had an interesting conversation with my wife about this, the video popped up on the today show and she immediately started making comments about look what that woman had to put up with.

        So I say, "so if you are walking the street like she was, and Brad Pitt was standing on the sidewalk as you walk by, and goes, "Hey Babe how are you", you probably wouldn't have considered it harassment, would you?" She wouldn't answer my question, gave me some kind of "well I'd have to think about that" vague answer. I then informed her that's because if a woman gets attention from a hot guy, it isn't harassment, is it? If it's from a guy she isn't attracted to, it's creepy. But not if it's from a hottie.

        One of the few times I ventured into red pill territory talking with my wife.
