    Go get ’em Cait! You are soo right! I can’t understand why boys are so attracted to girls.. I mean, what is their problem? Obviously they are rapist creeps when they try to get a girl’s attention. I cant stand it when they approach me and actually think I’ll talk to them. Gross!!

      I appreciate your sarcastic response and am very glad you do not feel threatened, intimidated or irritated by passing creepy comments. The majority of women do not feel the same way, so before reinforcing sexist perspectives, I encourage you to educate yourself. A good place to start is Hollaback, an anti-street harassment organization- http://houston.ihollaback.org/myths/

    Cate O’Donnell has it right! Her articles continue to spell out the basis of not only third wave feminism but also HUMANISM. That we women are not meat and it is not okay for us to expect to be treated as such. Dare I say there is a new “Cate Factor” to The Times, lending a sophisticated air of argument and reason? Yes, I do dare!
