I should note that the founder of Hollaback!, named as "Emily May" is not me, but I am pre-disposed to like her!

I will also highlight this quote from the article, as it's relevant to a number of debates that have occurred here on my LJ before

"Not all men impose unwanted attention upon women, and Kearl agrees that it's important for these men to join in the movement to stop street harassment."

Edit: I find it very interesting that a lot of the comments there are similar to comments on my journal in those previous debates, from offended men going HEY not ALL of us do this THIS ARTICLE IS SEXIST. *sigh*

Edit: my word, some of these comments are anger-making.

Edit: the comment from "Emmie" is not me either.

Edit: THE COMMENTS ARE MAKING ME WANT TO BREAK THINGS
