Enough

Posted on Tue, Dec 8, 2009 at 12:02 PM

To the, at most, 14 yr old boy who called after me “yeah yeah, f@%k you and all you hoes” on Sunday as I was walking to a December 6th event in memory of women who have lost their lives to violence: I am a woman. I have worked with survivors of sexual assault. I have worked with women who work as prostitutes. I am a woman walking. I am not a ho and prostitutes also are not deserving of this type of abuse. Just as you are not deserving of derogatory remarks hurled at you because of your race, age, or where you live. I want walk without feeling violated or unsafe. I want us to learn from the shattering and painful events from our past. Enough.
