SEE, I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY EVERYBODY HAS SUCH A PROBLEM WITH FLIRTING. IT MEANS THE PERSON THINKS YOU’RE ATTRACTIVE, MAYBE TAKE IT AS A COMPLIMENT INSTEAD OF GETTING BUTTHURT OVER NOTHING?
IT IS NOT FLIRTING, christ almighty.
Do not say shit like this, it is incredibly misogynistic and dismissive of the fear that women live with walking down the street. I have experienced street harassment so violent and predatory that I get panic attacks when men catcall me. Should I still take it as a compliment??
Proof that trans women don’t know jack shit about what it means to be a woman. No woman gets “happy” because she got catcalled. We think “oh my god, I hope he doesn’t follow me and rape me”.
But it’s understandable that she got a bit happy, she was recognised as a female in public by strangers for the first time. The OP isn’t saying that she wanted the catcall and she certainly isn’t saying that catcalling is okay. Transwomen are women too, even if they begin to face feminism struggles later in life than other women, they have faced a whole different type of struggle up the that stage.
Really? She doesn’t think it’s okay? Look at the last panel with the big happy eyes and tell me that’s an unhappy face.
Paris Lees, another trans woman, said the same thing, that cat-calling was an affirmation.
It’s a trend.
And it’s funny you should mention “she’s happy to be seen as female!”
How curious, that being “seen as female” is basically being seen as an object for the male gaze, and for men to pass comment on as though we existed for their own pleasure.
You said it and didn’t even realize you were doing it.
