Oglers

I just posted over on my site about being ogled and catcalled as I'm just trying to go about my daily business. Does this bother anyone else as much as it does me? I mean, once in a while, a complimentary whistle or something can be flattering. But in my neighborhood, literally every human being with a penis finds the need to harass me as I walk down the street. I'm doing nothing to bring this on. I can be dressed totally plainly, no makeup, nothing--and still the unsolicited calls come.

I'm tired of having to walk down the street like I'm somehow at fault, head bowed, swift feet. I feel like a bone being dangled in front of a pack of dogs. And it's so frustrating, because there's nothing I can do to stop them.
