    They did not, in any way shape or form, hide the fact that it's a PSA made by an advocacy group. The end of the video explicitly refers to Hollaback. The CNN article mentions it right away.

    But good to see you were paying attention.

    Now some of it is outright harassment, but is all of it?

    Please watch the rather short video.
    On an individual basis (example: I leave the house - one person does one thing from the above) some of it isn't harassment.

    But it's the frequency - the longevity of the remarks and comments - that accumulate. It would be the equivalent of everyone you meet making fun of you for being short or something. A single joke might not be a big deal - but everyone? A mental exhaustion that piles up and weighs you down.

    But for her the incidences that would have really bothered me were the 'walk along-sides' . . . what in the actual ****? Creepy and irritating. Note how none of the males in any of those clips had some woman tagging alongside him. Gross. I'm glad I don't live in the city.

    So let me get this straight.

    The video in question is feminist propaganda, so it's not real. But Texans are better than New Yorkers, because they allegedly don't harass women on the street. But it's still wrong for women to complain about getting harassed on the street, even though the men who do so lack manners.

    Riiiight.

    Yes, because it is perfectly normal for two people to be walking in the exact same direction for five minutes, right along side each other, when they are total strangers.

    C'mon. It's creepy.
    So it's also perfectly normal that only minorities catcall and harass women? Or just no white men in NYC? No bias or agenda there either.


    Yes, it is creepy for some guy to walk next to you but without seeing it in the entire context, it's hard to say what the situation was, or no? Do you just take what someone says with 10 seconds of footage and believe it?

    Catcalling video: Hollaback's look at street harassment in NYC edited out the white guys.


    The video is a collaboration between Hollaback, an anti-street harassment organization, and the marketing agency Rob Bliss Creative. At the end they claim the woman experienced 100-plus incidents of harassment “involving people of all backgrounds.” Since that obviously doesn’t show up in the video, Bliss addressed it in a post. He wrote, “We got a fair amount of white guys, but for whatever reason, a lot of what they said was in passing, or off camera,” or was ruined by a siren or other noise. The final product, he writes, “is not a perfect representation of everything that happened.” That may be true but if you find yourself editing out all the catcalling white guys, maybe you should try another take.

    This is not the first time Bliss has been called out for race blindness. In a video to promote Grand Rapids, Michigan, he was criticized for making a city that’s a third minority and a quarter poor look like it was filled with people who have “been reincarnated from those peppy family-style 1970s musical acts from Disney World or Knott’s Berry Farm,” as a local blogger wrote.

    Activism is never perfectly executed. We can just conclude that they caught a small slice of catcallers, and lots of other men do it, too. But if the point of this video is to teach men about the day-to-day reality of women, then this video doesn’t hit its target. The men who are sitting in their offices or in cafes watching this video will instead be able to comfortably assure themselves that they don’t have time to sit on hydrants in the middle of the day and can’t properly pronounce “mami.” They might do things to women that are worse than catcalling, but this is not their sin.


    Now don't get me wrong, I am not blasting or denying street harassment, I have had my own fair share of it but I don't think this video itself is necessarily a fair representation of it.

    She advertises her bust size on the bio page of her web site. So which is it? Do you not want to be objectified, or are you going to use your 34DDs to get you work? Double standard anyone?

    In places like that, I'm trying to understand why it took ten hrs, it's not unrealistic to get a dozen or so comments within an hour.
