ecue:

in Yeoido, where i work, “conservative groups” are holding rallies DENOUNCING the families of the Sewol ferry disaster. they hold pickets like “It’s not like they died while protecting the country” or “Get over it already”

these people operate on government funds, because the government doesn’t want to deal with the disaster or take responsibility.

oh, and remember that old lady who played the role of a grieving family member on national TV with Dear Leader?

does she look like one of these picketers telling families to shut up and go home? does she?

congratulations. 

you’re a fucking commie.

There’s no point to a guy yelling, “Hey sexy baby” at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t.

The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. “Hey sexy baby” is the first part of a sentence that finishes, “this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property”.
