Yesterday Rush Limbaugh discussed a YouTube video of a young woman that went viral. The woman, who looked to be in her 20s, was filmed for 10 hours silently walking the streets of Manhattan.
She wasn’t dressed provocatively, in a black and white T-shirt and black jeans. She was okay looking – certainly no beauty queen, but okay.
As she walked the streets, she said not a word, but just kept walking. Sorry – sounded like Dr. Seuss there for a minute.
The 10 hours were condensed down to a few minutes of what the video described as catcalling. Watching the video, I would hardly say that she was overly objectified, but that is obviously the message the makers of the video wish to convey – that men are predators.
The 10 hours of video must’ve been a dead bore if what they presented was the worst they had. Next time maybe use a more attractive woman that might elicit the base responses you’re searching for. Just some advice from a caveman.
Anyway, sure, there were a couple of creeps that actually walked alongside of her for a bit, but really nothing over the top. Many were just, “How you doin today?”
The video was presented by Hollaback and it claims to be dedicated to the eradication of “street harassment”. The display at the end of the video claimed over 100+ incidences of verbal harassment in the 10 hours. You may link to the video here.
