Her Hair Hangs Long

Oh, how happy I am

I've never been married, but from what I've observed:

All you married people who think marriage gives you an excuse to not go out on dates will find yourselves not married before too long.

I recently got to cross something off my bucket list and that was to make out with Ariel the Sexy Roller Derby Chick. I've wanted to do that for, oh, seven years now, and it was just as awesome as I had always imagined!...even if she kept belittling me and telling me "You're doing it all wrong." Man, it was f*%*in' hawt!

She lives in the Bay Area now and comes back once a year or so. Last year, we had a pretty good time, but she kept talking about some dude named Nicky P., so I didn't make a move. And then, after she left, I realized, I know Nicky P! I've even met Nicky P! He's her gay friend who dragged her out to California in the first f~~~ing place! [Facepalm]

This year, she gets into town and takes me out. After three hours of her plying me with pumpkin-flavored alcoholic beverages, touching my arm repeatedly and then dragging me into a Hispanic karaoke bar for what I imagine must've been some of the worst Latin dancing the world has ever seen, I got the idea that maybe, just maybe, she wanted me to kiss her. Well, I was right. I'll spare you the gory details, but at some point she goes, "Oh Doodlebug, I would've made out with you last year!"

[Facepalm]/Huzzah!

Anyway, the reason I'm not married is because I'm a big loser and have real problems recognizing when women are interested in me.

Anyway, Hama, life is too short! Don't be like Doodlebug! Go get a woman!

(I wonder if UPS will let me transfer out to the Bay Area...)

Jezebel remembers intersectionality: A Hollaback Response Video: Women of Color on Street Harassment

Meanwhile over at The Intercept: No, We Don’t Need a Law Against Catcalling

"Feminists of color have long criticized Hollaback’s tactics for having precisely this effect, of casting black and brown men as congenital predators, thus perpetuating their criminalization (in a tradition going back hundreds of years). In New York, where the fight over stop-and-frisk is not over, such activism currently coincides with policing that punishes youth of color for dancing on the subway or uses bullhorns to shoo black students out of affluent Park Slope. Discussing the Hollaback video on his radio show, Geraldo Rivera asked Rudy Giuliani if it was proof of the city’s moral decay, with both men agreeing that street harassment should be seen as analogous to graffiti — a policing priority under New York Police Commander Bill Bratton. In the meantime, not far from where I live, a group of 'concerned residents, business owners, artists and civic croups' called Gowanus United is closing ranks around gentrifying spaces in the name of public safety, raising alarms against a parole complex slated to open next year 'within a half-mile radius' of 'our streets, buses and subways.'"

Obligatory word drop: Liberal, feminist, yuppie, gentrifier.


Not as high as my opinion of Female Teamster.

Tales from the Shop Floor

I didn't get a chance to mention it in the Street Harassment thread, alas, but today at work, I decided to ask my union sister, Female Teamster, what she thought about that Hollaback! video. She's a still blonde grandmother from hardscrabble Chelsea, Massachusetts, working class, good on race and and gay issues, a lifelong Democrat, unfortunately, but anyway, I thought she might have some unique insights into catcalling.

So I approached her outside the office.

"Hey, Renee, did you see that internet video about sexual harassment?"

Female Teamster, without missing a beat, smiled lasciviously and, I shiznit you not, waggled her eyebrows before replying, "What, you gonna ask me out?"

Then she laughed as I blushed.


We should go back to talking about naked dingos.

I think we're at the point where being openly racist gets condemned. More subtle racism is still pervasive, but widely denied.

This video may actually be a case in point. They got condemned, admitted they screwed up and are trying to make amends.

That's not exactly shunning, though, is it?

Not that I'm saying they should be shunned (even if their apology was a little weak). And then, of course, there have been other things in the news this past year where Americans have felt free to say racist things but don't get shunned.

Just sayin'.

Citizen Watson wrote:
I think when its as extreme as shouting offensive things on the street, its generally not acceptable. The more subtle things like police aggression, unbalanced justice system, low expectations and 'doesn't fit the culture' not hirings are more of a problem precisely because they're not as blatant.

Of course, one of the purposes of this thread, I've gathered, is to teach the menfolk that more subtle expressions of sexual harassment, such as leering, saying "hey beautiful" or, according to some posters "hello" are equally unacceptable even though they are less blatant.


Paul Watson wrote:

Simon Legrande,

I know America has free speech so the harrassers are perfectly legal in their harrassment. My point, which you somehow missed, is that racists also have the same right to say what they like, even if its offensive, but as a society America has generally decided that racists who utilise this right are not nice people and socially shun them.

Given the video that sparked this national discussion, I'm not convinced that this is true.


Hollaback!: Letter to Our Supporters on the Recent Street Harassment Video

In which they apologize for their racist video.

Turns out they issued a statement last Thursday in which, although they didn't quite apologize, they did "regret the unintended racial bias in the editing of the video that over represents men of color." (Kinda wish somebody, anybody, would've pointed this out sooner.)

Anyway, apparently, they are taking all of the money raised by that yuppie gentrifier's video and using it to make a series of vids highlighting sexual harassment of black women and LGBT folks.

I am semi-mollified.


Statement about recent street harassment PSA

And one they put out today:

Letter to Our Supporters on the Recent Street Harassment Video

Published on November 4,2014 at 12:44 pm in Uncategorized, no comments

Dear Supporter,

First and foremost, thank you for your continued support of Hollaback!. As some of you now may be aware, we have been the object of some negative press and comments on social media regarding the recent street harassment video by Rob Bliss Creative. When the video was released, we doubted more than 10,000 people would watch it. We never imagined that it would be viewed more than 32 million times.

Given your passionate and dedicated support of Hollaback!, we wanted to inform you how we are directly responding to the accusations of racial and class bias.

Last Thursday, we issued a statement that makes our position clear: Hollaback! understands that harassment is a broad problem committed by a broad spectrum of individuals across lines of race, location and class. We know from the 8,000 stories we’ve collected on ihollaback.org that there is no single profile for a harasser, and harassment comes in many different forms. We are deeply invested in a movement that is multiracial, gender inclusive and incorporates place-based leadership specific to each locale. Racial, gender, and class politics is a core part of our work. While we did not create this video, we did allow our name to be used at the end of it. We agree wholeheartedly that the video should have done a better job of representing our understanding of street harassment and we take full responsibility for that. I’m deeply sorry.

What we also want to say is: We’re listening. Hollaback! is a small but determined and diverse organization, and we’ve been overwhelmed with the amount of feedback we’ve gotten. This video, created and edited pro-bono by Rob Bliss Creative, has taught us an important lesson. Although we appreciate Rob’s support, which has helped garner over $10k in donations from new donors, we are committed to continuing to show the complete, overall picture.

We are using the door opened by this conversation to expose the harassment faced by women of color and LGBTQ folks that too often is ignored by the mainstream media. That’s why we’re using the money raised to create our own video series — with the first one currently under development and scheduled to release within the next two weeks. We’re also working to create clearer messaging, respond to specific news articles, work with partners to write an Op-Ed, showcase thousands more stories through our global research study with Cornell University, and start an open and transparent dialogue with the public to voice opinions and concerns.

We are leveraging this opportunity to bring greater attention to our driving mission: giving you the power to end street harassment.

Again, thank you for believing in us, being a part of this vital dialogue, and supporting Hollaback! as we continue and extend our mission. We welcome your thoughts and suggestions as we move forward.

Sincerely,

Emily May
Executive Director, Hollaback!

I'm hoping I can get Don Juan de Doodlebug to use the term "liberal feminists" one more time.

What happened Don, did a feminist steal your bike or something?

No. A liberal feminist hasn't stolen my bike. If you'd read my posts, you'd see exactly what the liberal feminists did: they made a racist video to raise funds for their anti-sexual harassment cause.


One from the New Left archives:

RAPE, RACISM, AND THE WHITE WOMEN'S MOVEMENT:
AN ANSWER TO SUSAN BROWNMILLER

Ms. Brownmiller's discussion of the lynching of Emmett Till is justly infamous in commie circles, but I didn't know she waxed equally disgusting about the Scottsboro Boys. I guess I should probably read Against Our Will some day, but I don't know if my stomach could take it.


While looking through Jezebel, I discovered that Ms. Williams from The Daily Show had made a previous video. I hope it's as good:

Masters of Sexism - Claps and Catcalls


Lemmy, most of the posters in this thread are from the English-speaking world. Here is an English-language definition from an online dictionary for sexual harassment:

"that is harassment (typically of a woman) in a workplace, or other professional or social situation, involving the making of unwanted sexual advances or obscene remarks."

I am only bringing this to your attention so that everyone is on the same page. Or at least, understands what page everybody else is on.


We are not talking about people saying stupid things on the street, Sir NDay, we are talking about sexual harassment on the street. We are talking about it, specifically, in the context of a national discussion started by an internet video gone viral by an apparently up-and-coming marketing firm that successfully employed one of the oldest racist tropes in America's long history of racist tropes.

To those of you who would prefer to discuss whether it is appropriate to say "hello" to pretty women in the street, I apologize.


I was also reading more articles by Ms. Iversen about other recent gentrifying antics in the Big Apple. I wonder what else is out there?

Fire Sale: Bed-Stuy Landlords Plot to Burn Buildings with Squatters Inside

Anyone else want to complain about being harassed by panhandlers?

Arm the Homeless!

Vive le Galt!


I did see on Jezebel, though, that Ms. Roberts has been receiving death and rape threats via internet, which is, of course, horrifying.

I don't know why people just can't have a civil discussion on the internet.


Actually, no one has said anything about her, Mr. Shifty.

Stuff has been said about:

Rob Bliss, whose pro-gentrifying propaganda I documented (with a little help from Slate) earlier in this thread, and

Hollaback, an organization which has a page saying explicitly that people shouldn't do what this video did, but is apparently in need of funds.

Went through Jezebel and HuffPo looking to see if any of them were at least a little worried about the racial...subtext, I guess, but it seemed pretty glaring to me...of the Hollaback video and, gotta say, couldn't find much.

Ironically enough, I found myself on Hollaback Baltimore's anti-racism page where I was assured that replacing sexism with racism was a no-no. Hmmm.

Finally found an article in something called Brooklyn Magazine which:

a) restored my faith in humanity
b) drew connections between this video and Ferguson/the Pumpkin Riots divide which I didn't make on my own (thank you, Ms. Iversen)
c) tipped me into the fact that the video is also cis- and heteronormative (if I've gotten my nomenclature correct)
d) credibly speculated as to why liberal feminists, who should know better, would employ the myth of the black rapist: to raise money

From your original post: "She seems resigned to this kind of thing, but I've been seeing a lot of media about street harassment lately, and I got to wondering."

Racist video is totally on topic.

"I'd appreciate an apology, and please stop trying to steer the entire thread in that direction."

Sorry, but no. National discussions sparked by a video demonizing men of color as sexual predators doesn't get to be discussed colorblindedly.


Yes, at the dawn of the age of colorblindness. Liberal feminists making the same mistake forty years later is really disgusting.


New Left Maoist on Yuppie Liberal Feminist Gentrifiers of Yore

RAPE, RACISM, AND THE WHITE WOMEN'S MOVEMENT:
AN ANSWER TO SUSAN BROWNMILLER

Different context, and I don't necessarily agree with everything in it, but still pretty apropos, I thought.

"Never before has the media been so friendly to radical feminism. But then again, never before has radical feminism been so eager to place itself at the forefront of the "fight against crime," wholeheartedly supporting the basic premises and institutions of our society that underlie all oppression, including that of women."

The "fight against crime," comrades will remember, is the segregationist's rallying cry in the age of colorblindness.


Thank you for sharing, Madame Sissyl. Would you like a pamphlet?

Anyway, re: the anti-white male Slate piece: From my limited readings in black feminism, black feminists identify much closer with their male counterparts than they do with their white sisters even if they are sometimes exasperated by them. (See, for example, bell hooks' interview with motherf#+@ing Ice Cube in SPIN that I linked in feminist threads of days gone by.) That a young, bi-racial, presumably professional (she's writing for Slate, right?) woman reacts to yuppie gentrifiers making a video that dredges up every miscegenationist nightmare of the racist American psyche with a screed railing against "white men" (where, I gather from reading the piece, she means "upper class white men"--not many Teamsters get to harass women at frat parties, for example) doesn't surprise me in the least and, imho, is completely understandable.

That black feminists are still capable of being filled with class bias only goes to illustrate that feminism is a petty-bourgeois ideology that offers very little in the way forward towards the liberation of working class women. Which isn't to say that they aren't capable of some pretty profound insights.

For example,

"During the early stages of the contemporary anti-rape movement,
few feminist theorists seriously analyzed the special
circumstances surrounding the Black woman as rape victim. The
historical knot binding Black women - systematically abused and
violated by white men - to Black men - maimed and murdered
because of the racist manipulation of the rape charge - has just
begun to be acknowledged to any significant extent. Whenever
Black women have challenged rape, they usually and simultaneously
expose the use of the frame-up rape charge as a deadly racist
weapon against their men. As one extremely perceptive writer put
it:

The myth of the black rapist of white women is the twin
of the myth of the bad black woman-both designed to
apologize for and facilitate the continued exploitation
of black men and women. Black women perceived this
connection very clearly and were early in the
forefront of the fight against lynching."

--Angela Davis (commie) quoting Gerda Lerner (feminist).

Class society is the bedrock of woman's oppression! For womens liberation through socialist revolution!

Went back to Slate and ran into:

White Men Don't Catcall. They Harass In Other Ways.

I wish people would call out the "Protect the Honor of White Women!"hood of that Hollaback vid a bit harder (maybe I should see if Black Agenda Report's written anything?) but this is pretty good:

"For all men, harassment of women has more to do with establishing power than it does sexual interest; they do it to control space, both public (the very street you both walk on) and personal (a woman’s self-set boundaries). Men of color catcall vocally and visibly on the sidewalk because they have to—not that there’s ever excuse for harassment. They need the “Sexy!” and “Smile!” to create the illusion of dominance in shared public spaces that social constructs and institutional racism have never afforded them control over.

"White men, on the other hand, have no use for that sort of catcalling. They marked their territory centuries ago."

Well, to be fair to the noncontroversial feminists, although since they make videos like this racist piece of shiznit I don't see why I should be, she's said things much, much ickier than that.


I don't recall if I've ever 'fessed up to it, but I got my "Goblins do it in the streets" tagline from an article about the turn-of-the-last-century Sicilian author, Giovanni Verga, that concluded "Italians do it in the street."

My Camille Paglia quote from above was done from memory and, thus, was nowhere near as nuanced as what she actually said:

"The quid pro quo ruse--where a sex act is demanded for a promotion or job security--is the most grievous of sexual harrassment offenses and should be suitably punished, but one wonders just how common so clumsily blatant a proposition is these days. I suspect some men just try for what they can get, and a few unprepared, overly trusting women fall for it. We cannot expect government to make up for ancient lapses in child rearing. The 'hostile workplace' clause, on the other hand, which has become an integral part of sexual harrassment policy and has even, to my regret, passed review by the Supreme Court, seems to me reactionary and totalitarian. Mere offensiveness, which is open to subjective interpretation, is not harrassment. The problem with the 'hostile workplace' concept is that it is culturally parochial: it imposes a genteel white lady's standard of decorum on everyone, and when blindly applied by management, it imperialistically exports white middle-class manners, appropriate to an office, into the vigorously physical and more realistic working-class realm. The mincing minuets and sexual etiquette of the scribal class of paperpushers make no sense outside their carpeted cubicles of fluorescent light."

--"No Law in the Arena: A Pagan Theory of Sexuality" as collected in Vamps and Tramps: New Essays, page 49.

I read this for the first time not long before I went to work at the airport. Pretty early on in my career there, I witnessed Jose Medina, 40-ish, married, Puerto Rican, flirt with Wanda Carmona, late-30sish, single, Puerto Rican. When she responded to his come-on, he picked her up, laid her down on a stack of luggage and started dry-humping her while she laughed and made mock orgasmic squeals. Then they disentangled, laughed some more, and went their separate ways. "Huh," I thought to myself, "I wonder if that ever happens at Fidelity Investment?"

Hmm. I'd always thought that sexual harassment laws were about trying to change the mores of the white, middle-class office culture so that the white middle-class secretaries didn't have to put up with (or put out for) their bosses b%%*~#%@.

And that's why people complimenting each other's hair at work is now considered sexual harrassment?

I once again find myself in the uncomfortable position of sympathizing with the feminists' (male or female) concerns, but being annoyed by their ridiculous insistence that they speak for "Women". So, I'm gonna keep harping on the race and class biases of this discussion:

I tried to go back and find the Facebook thread of urban boys and girls talking about catcalling, but it was a thread that my comrade posted on, not one of hers, so I can't find it. :(

(For the record, she limited her comments to things that wouldn't surprise long-time Comrade Anklebiter readers, e.g., "The problem isn't men, it's capitalism!" A little reductionist, I agree, but she's young and new to Marxism. Hopefully, she'll get more subtle and nuanced as she develops.)

But, most of the women on there said things like "Yeah, it goes too far sometimes, but other times, if I'm feeling down and some guy tells me I look good, it makes me smile."

I'm sure most of us who were raised white, "middle class" and suburban have few to no friends, lovers, etc. that we met randomly on the street. I wonder if black and brown working class people who were raised in cities--of any color, really, but let's stick with black and brown to drive home the race and class biases of liberal feminism--would say the same thing?

Camille Paglia has said many things over the years that I would never defend. One of the things that she said that I think was pretty spot on was that "Sexual harrassment laws are an attempt to enforce the sexual mores of the white, middle-class office culture on the rest of the population."

Also, I lived in Boston for a decade. It's not a city that's exactly noted for its warm, friendly, open-armed populace, but the idea that nobody talks to strangers on the street there is blatantly false.

That was pretty f#&~ing hawt, Limey. I can't wait to forward it to her.

And, no. :(


I found the Slate article lurking on a conversation one of my comrades was having on Facebook. She is a young woman with a mixed racial background from the outskirts of Boston. When I met her she was teaching ESL and living in Eastie (not far from where I used to live, years ago) but has since moved to NYC to be a professional communist revolutionary.

The Facebook conversation was among a variety of young men and women, most of them from cities, most of whom weren't white. They had a lot to say about the video, the culture of catcalling and street harrassment but I won't go into that.

The most interesting part of the conversation, I thought, was that most of them thought the "You won’t believe how many times this woman gets harassed in 10 hours" video was a pro-gentrification propaganda piece.
