There are so many blogs out there these days-- but it's rare we come across of bloggeurs that aspire to a higher social purpose. Check out our new recent fave Holla Back:
Holla Back NYC gives New Yorkers the right to Holla Back at street harassers. Whether you're commuting, lunching, partying, dancing, walking, chilling, drinking, or sunning, you have the right to feel safe, confident, and sexy, without being the object of some dickwad's fantasy. So stop walkin' on and Holla Back!
The site has one horrifying story after another-- some recent shockers:
"Girl I can Smell You."
"Girl I wanna be your Pony."
"If you come to Japan, I appreciate you."
Man: Hi. Are you all with each other?
Me: Um, what do you mean?
Man: Like, are you all...together?
Me: Do you mean together with a capital T?
Me: Well...we are on a date. Why do you ask?
Man: Oh. Well, I was going to ask if I could stare at
your breasts. [FOLKS, I AM NOT FUCKING KIDDING HERE.
THIS IS VERBATIM FROM DUDE'S MOUTH.]
Me: [covering my cleavage with my hands] Well, you
wouldn't have been able to anyway.
Holla Back, we appreciate you! [For more stuff you hear on the street, check out our friends at Overheard In New York.]
