MacKinnon on street harassment …

“Unwelcome sex talk is an unwelcome sex act.  When threatening, severe, or pervasive enough, it works to exclude and segregate and denigrate and subordinate and dehumanize, violating human dignity and denying equality of opportunity.” Only Words, Catharine MacKinnon, p45

So good to put into words what’s so problematic about it! (It’s not just annoying, it’s not just bothersome, it’s not just we can’t take a compliment, and on and on…)
