A catcall is entirely about reminding you that you are not yours. The purity myth is entirely about reminding you that you are not yours. The fetishization of female purity in a world where catcalls are an acceptable form of communication telegraphs one thing very clearly:
“Women, stop sexualizing yourselves—that’s our job, and you’re taking all the fun out of it.”
The sexualization of women is only appealing if it’s nonconsensual. Otherwise it’s “sluttiness,” and sluttiness is agency and agency is threatening.

Another hour and a half of work. I don’t know if I’ll make it. I’m not used to working 9 hour shifts like an adult.
Why do men think women are angry just on their period?

So this is what you do to survive. You buy cheap glass vases and cups at Walmart at 10:30PM with your best friend. You drive as fast as you can all over the city, looking for a deserted place. You park on the side of the road, facing a rocky bluff. You turn on your caution lights, step out of the car, and hurl the glasses and vases and candle holders at the cliff as fast and as hard as you can, the glass shattering on impact and splintering, showering the rocks beneath. You can feel it. You can feel it. You can feel it break like you have. You can feel it piecing you back together. You sign The Chain by Fleetwood Mac as loud as you possibly can on repeat until your voice is hoarse. You almost recognize yourself. This is how you survive.
