The New Face of Street Harassment

A Voice for Men has an excellent video post up today, a response to the much viewed “10 Hours of Walking in NYC” that is being used by the Hollaback organization to showcase the harassment that women face every day. But as AVfM points out…the supposed floods of verbal assaults really aren’t there. Take a look:

For what it’s worth, I watched the entire original video too…and the AVfM narrator was right. Only 1 of her encounters could have been said to be  truly harassing, but even that one tugged on my heartstrings a bit. The man *does* walk next to her for over a minute, and switches between complimenting her body (not in a crude way), asking why she isn’t speaking to him (it’s a “silent walk”, she doesn’t say anything during the video), and saying that the reason she’s acting coldly to him must be because he is too ugly. He does eventually get tired of this, and simply walks away. You’re telling me that a man who calls a random woman beautiful, wants to know why she isn’t at least adhering to common courtesy by acknowledging him, and then assumes out loud that the reason for her bitchy attitude is his own body is an example of street harassment?
Now, I get that it’s a “silent walk” through NYC. But some aspects of it are kinda suspect. For example, she only walks through the less affluent streets (as far as I can tell)…streets where, yes, guys tend to hang out/loiter before heading to work. What demographic of men? Mostly black or hispanic. I think she gets hit on by 1 white guy the entire time. In other words, she is in neighborhoods where there are a plethora of men hanging out, with a demographic that tends toward being more vocal than whites when complimenting women. Hmm…

Also, she quite frankly has a look on her face that would freeze water, a “do not f-ing mess with me” look. A look that says she is in a piss poor mood. What do men generally do when they see a woman in distress (emotional, in this case)? They reactively try to make her situation better. Okay, so one guy does yell out to her “smile!”, which (to me) is very slightly insulting…if I’m having a bad day, it’s not my job to pretend to be happy unless I’m at work. But what do the majority say to her that is so offensive, so harassing, so sexist?

“Have a good day”
“God bless”
“How’re you today/doing”
“Hope you have a nice night”
“Hi beautiful”
“Hey sexy”

The horror. The chauvinist, misogynistic horror. So gentlemen, please be careful out there. Apparently saying “Good morning” to a (female) stranger on the street is now harassment. Gods forbid you smile at her…

  3. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    Farm Boy,
    It’s awfully hrd to write in to the code of law something as subjective as “be attractive”. I am starign to be a little disgusted by all this.
    There is a motto chiseled into the pediment aqbove the entrance to the US Supreme Court. It reads “Equal Justice Under Law”. Profound sentiments. Would that they were adhered to.


  4. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    What could be getting to me about this issue is that women are asking for another weapon to use to beat up men. Don’t they already hve enough?

    They do, but that’s the curse of being blind to your privileged status…you always believe you deserve more, when you already have enough.

  7. Spawny Get says:

    I, ebul white cis-het MAN *boo hiss etc* that I am, have suffered from street harassment myself.

    “Oh Spawny”, you might well exclaim, “that’s your movie-star good looks(tm) privilege at work again

    “Sure”, I might reply, “we all know that that happens to me all the damn time. Soo tiring. But what can one do? One can only bear this burden (from which mighty Atlas might well shy away, scared by its immenseness) and continue on without complaint…as usual.

    BUT NO!

    Not in this case, dear reader. For I refer not to my everyday existence in Our Beloved Benign Western Patriarchy, but instead to trips to Teh Far East where I have been badgered by tailors and other shop owners, street vendors and other *cough*kind ladies offering solace at the end of a wearying day*cough*.

    Did I enjoy their kind attentions, knowing full well that their interest lay solely in the content of my wallet/sac? Nope…but did I make a ten hour video of my suffering? nope. Did I wail about it? nope. Did I pass round the collection plate whilst not mentioning for what vaguely defined undefined purpose I wanted the cash from simple minded suckers benign credulous patrons? nope.

    If you watch the video AVfM has up, they make a very good point.
    She walked for 10 hours.
    Her final cut was only 2 minutes.
    It states that she didn’t include things like wolf whistles or winking (wtf? Frickin *winking* is harassing now too?) and the like…so let’s bump that up to, say, 4 minutes of “harassment”.

    Ten hours of walking in one of the busiest and crowded cities on Earth, and you reap maybe 4 minutes of men complimenting your looks or telling you to have a nice day.

    For crying out loud, I could see a problem if guys had repeatedly grabbed her arm, attempted to grope her breasts, made crude sexual comments about her body/genitals, or prevented her from walking away…that’s harassment, and I’ve had those things happen to me (minus the last one). What she recorded? Yeah…not even remotely worthy of the term.


  13. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    I hadn’t realized this was your post. Good job!
    You did mention privilidged status. It is my contention that they feel that they are as goddesses among slaves. It’s beyond absurd in that respect.


  14. Spawny Get says:

    Thanks for this post Tarn. It was right to respond to this latest claim of holy victimhood, most beloved of all things in Femtopia. It caused me, at the end of a good day, to unleash the famed Spawny Shining Wit. (h/t Spoonerisms) just a little upthread.

    Fuzzie (again) made a comment that I couldn’t help but decide was worthy of triggering a post (again).

    I very much appreciate people kicking in content, or an invite to post (Fuzzie’s comment). I’ve had a great day (70 degrees / 20 degrees) on the water, came back to an unexpected post by Tarn and a comment that finally triggered a post on MGTOW. Something I’ve had on the back boiler for a few days (JFG comment by Sir_Chancealot + Paul Elam + JtO + DD)

    Thanks guys, much appreciated.


  15. Tarnished says:

    Thanks, Fuzzie!

    My (other) newest post over on my blog also makes mention of female privilege, though in regards to the manosphere, not society at large. I find it both sad and amusing that feminists tell us that “men have lots of privilege, they just can’t see it because that’s how they’re used to living”.

    I actually reversed this when speaking to a feminist blogger…”Okay, so then that also means women have blind privilege too, since they’re born into it and are used to it?” Nope. I was informed that women have no privilege, blind or no.



  16. Tarnished says:

    Just as a “by the way”…I’ve never been drunk in all my 30 years. My oma raised me to think of drinking as a nice compliment to a good meal. I only drink when with friends at a restaurant, or once a year with my lover at home. Both of us have lost family to drunk drivers, so we aren’t the types to drink “just because”. Besides, from what I hear, having a hangover is no bueno…

    If I didn’t drink beer, I would not appreciate the finer things in life as I do.


  32. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    “German honey brewed root beer”. You know how to seduce bears with imagination. Have you considered giving instruction to girl bears?

    Moehau Man,
    There is a theory floating around in academia that civiliztion was founded on the need to produce beer, not bread. Both require agriculture.


  33. Cill says:

    Men, if you want to be harassed by predatory promiscuous princesses in their late teens and twenties, all you have to do is come to my home country, the Land of the Long White Cloud (New Zealand). Buena Vista is thinking of doing just that. Be warned, though, they will hunt you down in vehicles and they do *not* take “no” very kindly at all.


  34. Tarnished says:

    Fuzzie, I’ve tried. However, all the female bears in my area believe male bears desire twigs & berries over honey. I keep telling them that male bears already *have* those, but my advice falls on deaf ears. ๐Ÿ˜‰


  35. Tarnished says:

    Cill, that actually sounds terrifying.


  36. Cill says:

    Tarn, there’s research etc about it here:
    That post should be required reading for all men who visit this country (and their girlfriends and wives, if any).


  37. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    I’ll second what Tarnished said. It does sound terrifying. And I’m a bear.

    Now why would girl bears think that boy bears want twigs?
    This whole business of relations of the sexes, even when you cross the line of species, is enough to give boys a headache.
    I should walk up to girl bears and ask, “Got root beer?”
    Would that count as sexual harrassment?

  39. I have not seen the video but heard the gal is dressed in skin tight streetwalker type clothing. It kind of reminds me of this guy in San Francisco who paints himself silver and does a robotic style street performance for money. I happened to look at him one day in passing on the street when he was apparently “off duty” and he snarled, “What are YOU looking at, #$%?” I didn’t say it but I wanted to point out the obvious, if you are painted entirely silver, people are bound to look at you. I used to always throw some cash in his jar but after that, never did again. I am not sure how this fits in but where else am I going to share that story? ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s not normal for wild animals to be affectionate with humans. Who knows what motivates them?
    I don’t think that they are bears, technically.


  52. Cill says:

    You’re right, they are not bears at all. As marsupials, they are more closely related to the Kangaroo than the bear. Its closest living relative is the Wombat.

    My dog is motivated by companionship and loyalty. He would die for me without hesitation, as he has indicated more than once. It’s a bit of a worry, actually, that he might attack someone some day. I don’t dare trust him with anyone else except the couple who sometimes caretake for me. The Horse shows every sign of enjoying my company. He radiates joy from his expressionless face as he watches me approach. The message he sends is so clear he might as well say it in English “Come on, get up on my back! Come on, let’s go!”


  53. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    It’s good to have animals.

    What noise do bears make? Koalas grunt like a guinea pig.


  55. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    Bears aren’t very noisy. Cubs may cry for Mama Bear and there is the “chortling”. There might be a littlw wisdom in that.

If they care about you that much, just what do they want you to do? I listened to a Sandman video or eight whilst tidying my kitchen this afternoon. He was saying that he got a lot of pressure from his momsy to find a woman and give her grand-kids. He was saying that in any subsequent divorce he’d bet his beloving mum would dump him to keep in tight with the mother of her grandkids.

    Now, I had no kids, but that wasn’t my experience. My mother was realistically on my side (she recognised my ex-wife-to-be’s bullshit when it was bullshit, but was sanguine about it never being all the fault of one side). That attitude was exactly what I wanted and had expected of her.

    Well Spawny I’m sorry to be the one to bring you the bad news, but Cill and I kind of rounded it off for you.
    Heh heh…
    I’m sure you won’t mind, mate


  105. Spawny Get says:

    TBH I wasn’t sure that I’d achieved more than limited success…


  106. Moehau Man says:

    … and so did Tarnished. Heh heh
    The old Moe innards are getting a bit sore from laughing here…
    Oh dear, I’m wobbling like a fuffy duck’s gizzard…

    Now if only we could repeat this performance with Sumo:

    Nah. Hardly possible. He doesn’t stick his head over the parapet the way Spawny does.


  109. Tarnished says:

    You know who else has movie star good looks? Gilbert Gottfried!


  110. Cill says:

    Ah, you are joking, I hope, Tarnished? About Gilbert Gottfried?


  111. Spawny Get says:

    I fixed that link. Removed the ‘m.’

    Look up


  112. Tarnished says:


    Much like how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop, the world may never know. ๐Ÿ˜‰


  113. Tarnished says:

    Ah, darn it! Posting from mobile makes the links all whackadoodled.


  114. Spawny Get says:

    Seems to burger it in two ways. You fixed the second one. The first one is the leading ‘m.’


  115. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    That was a big “Oh noes!”.


  116. Tarnished says:

    Holy cows! It burgers it too?
    I used to like mine medium-well… ๐Ÿ˜€


  117. Cill says:

    Fuzzy said: “I hadnโ€™t known that the sheep were from your neck of the woods”

    Oh yeah. You drive the tractor into a paddock and yell out any old thing like “Come and get it girls!” They’d all baa as they come running. Then you drive around and around and chuck them sheep nuts from a trailer. We used to laugh ourselves speechless by doing this and yelling out ever more ridiculous comments, and they’d always reply with a goup-think “Baa” in unison every time. That’s all you have to do to train them.

    Sheep nuts?! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    You’ve lost me there, Tarnished. It’s the cultural divide, trying to understand a Pick (Street Troll)’s sense of humor.


  120. Spawny Get says:

    One attempts to ameliorate one’s language for your delicate colonial shell-likes, and this is the thanks one gets?


  121. Cill says:

    “Sheep nuts?” Not in that sense, Tarnished, please! They were ewes!
    (or was that you speaking, Pick? It’s getting harder and harder to tell…)

    Sounds smutty to me…best leave that line alone.


  123. Cill says:

    “Sounds smutty to me”. I agree, Spawny. Let’s you and me try to maintain some sense of decency around here.


  124. Tarnished says:

    Lol…no, no, no. It’s from an old candy commercial. Let’s see if this works:

  126. Cill says:

    Deafening silence… Suddenly nobody has anything un-indecent to say…


  127. Spawny Get says:

    Well…I guess we all know what opinions Tarn holds about us. Harrumph

    Bed beckons BTW


  128. Cill says:

    Hang on, there are a gazillion links at
    Which one are we supposed to click?


  129. Tarnished says:

    *sigh* The first one.
    Rargle Flargle phone posting…


  130. Spawny Get says:

    The Lollipop, I suspect.


  131. Tarnished says:

    Dinner is calling to me, too.
    I do believe I’ll take my leave of the dignified and esteemed gentlemen here.

    Oh, and goodnight to Spawny and Cill, too. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜›

  133. Spawny Get says:

    Missing you already, I’m sure of it. ๐Ÿ˜‰


  134. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    Well, the conversation has turned away from sheep and mocie star good looks. That is a relief.
    About Tootsie Roll Pops, they’re a popular American candy. Essrntially, a lollypop with a Tootsie Roll center. Nobody could be patient enough to lick away all the hard candy to get at the Toosie Roll.


  135. Tarnished says:

    And…there goes the decency. Wave goodbye, everyone.

    Ha ha, night guys.
    Sleep/relax well. ๐Ÿ™‚

    4. ‘night Spaw…

    Thanks for the explanation Fuzzy. We finally know what a Tootsie Roll center is! Whee!


  139. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    I think somebody pulled my leg.


  140. Cill says:

    I would almost pull any other leg, other than a bear’s. Bear’s have got claws on the ends of those things.


  141. Cill says:

    Horses are OK. No claws on their feet, and to change their shoes you just hammer on two new pairs with nails.


  142. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    The better to climb trees with.

    Judgybitch tears into Lena Dunham over at AVfM.

    Considering that Lena is the source of all this, what if it’s all nonsense to attract publicity?


  143. Cill says:

    Horses’ shoes last much longer than a woman’s shoes. For my every shoe change, my sisters would change theirs thrice. Shoes are woven in with a woman’s psyche, and if they are not just “so”, she’ll be out of sorts. (deliberate pun BTW)


  144. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    Horses don’t see shoes as a fashion statement. Now, manes and tails are something else again.


  145. Cill says:

    I hope that Lena gets the ubiquitous pussy pass. The more absurd the hypocrisy, the more the public sees it for what it is.

    A sea change moves silently under the surface, invisible to all but a sailor of many seas…


  147. Cill says:

    Tarn, at this link:

    …there is no Rargle Flargle phone posting. I swear!


  148. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    This “sea change”, is it something that you feel that is beneath consciousness, or can you tell me more?

    About lena, I widh that she hadn’t said anything whether it truth or nor. It does go to point out that women are not held to account for things that men are.


  149. Cill says:

    The Sea Change.
    It’s not beneath consciousness. It’s observation. I’ve no doubt whatsoever that it’s happening. I’ll think about explaining. I’ve already tried, actually, in other posts including the post of my own on this blog. After thinking about it again, I’ll come back to it.


  150. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    Feminism has sought to profit from sowing discord between men and women. In that, they have been too effective. We’re not meant to live apart, angry with each other.
    Could the sea change be the realization of this coming to the fore of consciousness?


  151. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    In wandering around, there was a claim on reddit/mens rights that an Australian newspaper tried to duplicate the scenario in Sydney. The model wore short shorts. No harrasssment.
    Can anyone find a link?


  152. Cill says:

    “Could the sea change be the realization of this coming to the fore of consciousness?”
    Yes it is, in many places I have been. Feminism still has an iron grip on power, but not the unquestioned fealty from the masses that it had as recently as a year ago. Back then, the under current lacked escape velocity. Now it has poured through into open ocean, and the sea change has become inexorable.
    On the land, I hear the thundering hooves of triumph! Spawny seems to think you are young like me, Fuzzy. Is this true? We shall win!

    “an Australian newspaper tried to duplicate the scenario in Sydney”
    Fuzzy here’s the link:

    I left this comment with Birdee (

    I knew it would be zapped because Birdee like almost everything in or around the media Down Under is extreme feminist. And it was zapped before it even touched the side. FWIW here’s what I put:

    “My fellow man: there is only one way to deal with this. Have as little to do with women as is politely possible. Make this the mission of your life:
    Don’t look at them, don’t speak to them, don’t interact with them, don’t even be near them.
    Then women will be “safe” and you (unless by the mere fact of being alive you harass them) should avoid prosecution for harassment or worse.”

    This is not actually how I live my life. I do interact with good women (a lot of them actually). But the commenters on Birdee are already showing they are hopelessly prejudiced and need a kick in the butt.


  157. FuzzieWuzzie says:

    It is a shame that they didn’t let that comment pass. There is nothing objectionable on the face of it beyond the radical stance. Mainstream women need to see stuff like that to shock them out of their complacency.
    Off to dream of riding horses.
