In response to recent events I want to make the following observation/public service announcement:
Times I have been harassed/followed/groped/grabbed/flashed on the street/at a bar/at a gig, wearing 'regular' clothing = uncountable
Times I have been harrassed before/during/after a burlesque performance = 0
This is as you would expect - because harassment is a problem with the harasser, not a problem with the harassee's clothing, or lack thereof. It's not a problem with the harassee's body, their actions, their decision to go out at night, or their decision to drink.
Don't perpetuate myths by calling women who wear short skirts 'sluts' and claim they are 'asking for it'. Don't be a douchebag, don't harass women.
(Oi, don't harass men either.)
