Canada. One of the best moments in our history.

(Fun fact, the guy enthusiastically stating for the record that we’ll never be a safe haven for zombies used to be my boss…)

In San Francisco last year, a man stabbed a woman in the face and arm after she didn’t respond positively to his sexually harassing her on the street.

In Bradenton, Fla., a man shot a high school senior to death after she and her friends refused to perform oral sex at his request.

In Chicago, a scared 15-year-old was hit by a car and died after she tried escaping from harassers on a bus.

Again, in Chicago, a man grabbed a 19-year-old walking on a public thoroughfare, pulled her onto a gangway and assaulted her.

In Savannah, Georgia, a woman was walking alone at night and three men approached her. She ignored them, but they pushed her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.

In Manhattan, a 29-year-old pregnant woman was killed when men catcalling from a van drove onto the sidewalk and hit her and her friend.

Last week, a runner in California — a woman — was stopped and asked, by a strange man in a car, if she wanted a ride. When she declined he ran her over twice.

FUCK YOU if you think that street harassment is a “compliment” or “no big deal” or that it’s “irrational” of us to be afraid because “what’s actually gonna happen.” Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you some more.

In response to this post in another thread.. This is an original photo that someone took with my camera, from May 22, 1990. Soon after I graduated college, I did the usual backpack-Europe-by-train. As the Wall was in the process of coming down at the time, I made sure to go through Berlin to experience what was going on and to be able to say later I was there when it happened.

This was after the large demonstrations, where the West-facing side of the Wall (with all the years of extensive graffitti) had been almost entirely broken off and saved/sold for souvenirs. They’d already knocked down large sections of the wall, and in this gaps East German guards were still stationed, but hardly with the kind of militaristic shoot-to-kill attitude I’d always been taught they would display. These guys really didn’t give a damn since they knew the whole thing was very likely to come down in the near future, and so they were probably just there to make sure people went through the standard Checkpoint Charlie (a few hundred yards away), where they would stamp your passport and do the usual bureaucratic stuff.

I took this photo just because of the incongruity of what we’d always been taught about East German Wall guards, and the no-fucks-given attitude of these guys. Something to remember it all by.

We also have a popular culture which acts as a megaphone for the larger American tendencies towards anti-intellectualism.

It was time when they both loved each other best, without hurry or excess, when both were most conscious of and grateful for their incredible victories over adversity. Life would still present them with other moral trials, of course, but that no longer mattered: they were on the other shore.
