I just got a $16/hour job offer

And it’s blowing my mind
That would be the most hourly money I have ever been paid
But Idk if I can balance my research and that kind of time commitment

One afternoon in early August, I was waiting at the bus stop near the local library. I’m always cautious when I go to this part of the city as this is where I always face the most extreme sexual harassment. On this day, I was minding my own businesses, listening to some music while waiting for the bus. At some point, a guy very clearly strung out on drugs came up to me, put his arm around me, and started whispering all the dirty things he wanted to do to me in my ear. Now, I’m a very petite girl, so when it comes to situations like this, I have to be very careful about how I act/react because I know I could easily be hurt. So I stood there, while he kept going. There were plenty of people at this bus stop, meaning that there were multiple witnesses to what was going on. The man tried to pull me closer, at which point I jumped out of his grasp and tried to move a little ways away. Of course he followed me, but quickly became distracted by another girl (who he tried to mug). Like I said, I’m sexually harassed often, but I have never felt as threatened and disgusting as I did that day.

This man, who was touching me and telling me what he was going to do to me, saw me only as an object for his entertainment. In his eyes, I was not a human being. He didn’t want a real relationship with me, he wanted to exert his “power” as a man and use me for his own pleasure. And that’s what every man who catcalls, who sexually harasses, is doing.

There are a lot of people that think catcalling and street harassment are harmless, but try putting yourself in my position, or the millions of other women that face this kind of behavior every single day. Street harassment isn’t flattering. It’s not a compliment. In fact, it’s exhausting. It’s both demoralizing and humiliating, and makes women feel completely powerless over their own bodies.

The fool, he did not realise that Achilleus would never listen - this was no sweet-minded man, no gentle heart, but a man in full fury.
