Countless times I’ve walked down the streets of my home town, of the capital and other parts of Guyana and felt unsafe. Why do I feel unsafe, this is my home. Street harassment is a revolting act that has become the norm for an alarming percentage of men of our society. I always think to myself, do these guys actually think that this is what it means to charm a woman, to shout cat calls and insulting comments when I don’t respond to them, what was wrong with their upbringing to make them feel like this is okay? IT IS NOT OKAY. We are not your prey, we are not objects, we are disgusted by this behavior and we won’t tolerate it. It has to stop, NO TOLERANCE, WE DO NOT LIKE IT, IT IS NOT OKAY.
