GET ANGRY. FIGHT BACK! by SiofraTural
Alright I really should be continuing with school work but I HAD to get this out of my system.
Lately I have been seeing quite a few artists I watch talk about how they have been somehow or someway sexually harassed, and some of these are terribly frightening. Many of them say they are just too shy and sort of scurry away, but then mention that these creeps who are touching and following them keep continuing to do what they do.
DON’T RUN, FIGHT BACK. SHOW THESE CREEPS THAT YOU ARE NOT SOME TOY TO PLAY WITH. YOU ARE A HUMAN BEING, AND YOU WILL BE TREATED AS AN EQUAL WHETHER THEY LIKE IT OR NOT.
Creeps, male or female, whatever sexuality, will continue to harass the individual they consider submissive and will show no will in fighting them off. If you show that they are the dominant one, they will continue to harass you because they know that you can’t do anything against them. If all you do is say no, and they continue, get angry, get loud, get FIERCE. These creeps aren’t humans, they are nothing more then worthless trash. SHOW THEM WHAT YOU ARE MADE OF. Don’t EVER get physical straight away, as the mindless public will somehow glorify the creeper and make you seem like the true villain. Get REAL angry if they touch you. Yell, stomp your feet, anything to show them that if they continue, there will be consequences.
I was a high ranking officer in my senior high school’s ROTC, and throughout my four years in the program I have seen quite a few creepy things and have even heard about it. These sort of things PISS ME OFF. Once, I saw a cadet grind a girl against the door without her consent, and she told him to back off, but she wasn’t assertive. Apparently he was “marching” and wasn’t told to stop by the cadet who was having him march (the cadet was called to do a job) so he was “still marching” while grinding this girl up against the door when she tried pushing him away. Well let me tell you, the moment I saw this and yelled at him to stop, and he DIDN’T before giving me that excuse, I started yelling so loud and angrily I felt like I was spitting fire. I yanked him by his collar, moved the girl, and pushed the cadet against the door and made him stand at attention. I yelled at this cadet before to the point where I thought my head was going to explode (he was looking through the contacts in my phone, which I had tucked away in an area where EVERYONE knew it was and would grab it for me if I’m busy and bring it to me. They’re all smart enough to know that you just don’t go looking through someone else’s phone, although this kid thought he was a “high and mighty detective” and since his dad was a cop or whatever the kid had the authority to look through my phone). Some of the other officer cadets then brought the kid out into the hallway because I screamed at him so viciously he looked like he was about to faint/cry/whatever, but let me tell you, him grinding on that girl, and him ALSO TOUCHING other cadets that I’ve heard him do in the past, made me livid. I was so pissed I literally couldn’t see straight. I hate anyone, male or female or whatever, who use excuses in order to sexually touch or assault someone else. It doesn’t matter if you’re straight, gay, bisexual, whatever, if you use your title as an excuse to grope someone, you are nothing more then a pile of shit.
So today, after seeing another journal about an artist, who I admire, was sexually groped repeatedly and told that she should have sex with the creep, by the creep, I had to draw something to get other’s attention to all of this.
IF YOU FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE WHETHER IN SCHOOL, THE WORK PLACE, OR ANYWHERE ELSE, AND THERE IS SOMEONE SEXUALLY GROPING, TALKING, ASSAULTING YOU, STOMP YOUR FOOT DOWN AND TELL THEM THAT YOU WILL NOT BE PUSHED AROUND OR TOUCHED LIKE YOU’RE ONLY A SEX TOY. YOU WILL SHOW THESE SUBHUMAN CREEPS THAT YOU MEAN BUSINESS, AND IF THEY CONTINUE EVEN AFTER YOU REPORT THEM AND THEY START GETTING PHYSICAL, GET A GROUP OF FRIENDS TOGETHER AND INTIMIDATE THE SHIT OUT OF THOSE CREEPS.
FEEL STRONG. BE STRONG. DON’T LET THESE CREEPS MAKE YOU SUBMISSIVE TO THEM. YOU. ARE. NOT. A. SEXUAL. OBJECT.
YOU. ARE. A. HUMAN. BEING.
