Have you ever had a post about the worst cat calls you've ever received? I think it would generate some funny comments. For instance, yesterday I had some drunken undergrad scream at me from the top of an abandoned amphitheater, "YO! Shorts Girl! I like your shorts but not your satchel!
WTF? First of all, I don't carry a satchel. Second of all, I had just been departing a graduate class on gender roles and wanted to scream some esoteric Butlerian bullshit about the male gaze and sense of propriety in objectification. Instead I just kept walking. But I always find it funny what dudes yell at me to get my attention.The only thing guys yell at me on the street is, "Hey, Big Girl!" It makes me wanna crawl in a hole and die. It's so embarrassing. I assume I get that yelled at me so much because I'm very tall, but it's not like, a nice thing to hear. No woman wants to be called "big" at a low volume in the comfort of her own home, much less have it screamed at her from a sidewalk from a bunch of goofballs in carpenter jeans.
It's not really a compliment either; it's more like an aggressive observation. I couldn't imagine yelling such a thing at a stranger. I know I'm 6'1". Believe me, I have to figure out where to buy jeans; I know my size isn't normal. I just don't appreciate men hollering stuff like that at me. When it happens, I just shoot 'em dirty looks. If I'm in a bad mood, I'll flip 'em the bird or scream back at them to drop dead. I guess I'm a big girl with a big mouth to match.
