Cat calls are a daily part of life for almost every woman. But in Colombia, I noticed that I'm subject to more disrespectful street harassment. I asked a friend and he admitted that "black women are more likely to be prostitutes." -_- Direct. quote.
Sometimes it seems like "no" isn't enough. I have to give a reason. Case and point: yesterday, while stopped at a red light, a guy honked and waved at me. I waved back politely but said no. He then followed me for three blocks into a shopping center turn on and all the way to the parking lot of the post office honking at me telling me to roll down my window and yelling other things to me. "No thank you" twice should have been enough.
