i can’t tell you how many times i’ve spoken up about harassment only to be told to “learn to take a compliment”.  
since when do “compliments” intrude on my space?  what kind of “compliment” makes a person feel unsafe or threatened?
harassment isn’t a compliment.  know the difference.

this reminds me of when I went to vegas. I saw this girl with beautiful curly red hair and it looked SO nice and she was like super hot and obviously I wanted to talk to her and see if I could get her number. So, I went up to her and said, “excuse me, hey I just wanted to tell you I love your hair its so beautiful! It really brings out your features of your face. You’re gorgeous!” she looked at me and told me, “thanks.” with the dullest face and monotonous voice. I then proceeded trying to talk to her, but she walked past me with her friends as if I didn’t exist laughing with her friends rolling her eyes as the friends saw me and noticed me and asked her about me.
Next time, I’ll just say nice titts you wanna get the hair pulled later tonight or nah? It seems to get more of a reaction.

The misogyny is strong with this one. 
Women don’t owe you shit. We are not obligated to be polite or grateful when a strange man on the street informs us he finds us attractive. 
WE DO NOT EXIST TO BE BEAUTIFUL FOR YOU and we are under no obligation to acknowledge or appreciate your attraction to us.
And your motivations for speaking to a woman are highly suspect if a) all you want is “a reaction”, and b) you are so hostile towards women that when one doesn’t respond in a manner that is to your liking, your reaction is to ask her if she wants her hair pulled instead.
This woman dodged a bullet. You are terrifying and need to look at your life and look at your choices.

It’s never, never, never the woman’s fault. No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman. No means no. […] The one regret I have is we call it domestic violence as if it’s a domesticated cat. It is the most vicious form of violence there is, because not only the physical scars are left, the psychological scars that are left. This whole culture for so long has put the onus on the woman. What were you wearing? What did you say? What did you do to provoke? That is never the appropriate question.

Joe Biden on Today this morning (h/t Joy)

Really… Like domestic violence is the worst. You’re scared to go home…
