On the one hand, I like this letter from a hot woman to an entitled ogler. But! I’m a bit over the idea that street harassment only happens to “hot” women or is at all about desire. In my experience, it’s got more to do with a kind of problematic male-bonding, and with you having a female body coded as vulnerable (based on your race, age, and appearance) in a space where men feel entitled to be predatory. As you can see from the stories archived on HollabackDC, a website about street harassment, short-shorts rarely play into it.

Uh. Karen Healey wants feedback on her portrayal of POC and asexuals in her novel Guardian of the Dead, for which she’s apparently received some flak for online. I haven’t read it, but I’m kinda like dude, if there are critiques around the internet on the shit you might’ve done wrong, why not, say, read those critiques? I’m confused. Anyways, if you read her book, and feel like wielding some sort of clue-bat, here’s the link.
