Street Harassment

While sitting on a downtown taxi stand this morning, I watched as a pretty young woman crossed paths with an old, disheveled, possibly homeless black man. He smiled broadly at her, bowed slightly at the waist, and proclaimed "You are the prettiest of them all!" before continuing on his way.

I briefly considered leaping to her defense and educating the old fellow about the oppressive, misogynistic evils of street harassment, but then I remembered that I'm not a feminist idiot.
