Last week video footage of a woman being catcalled while wandering down a random New York street went viral. It was pretty horrible stuff – but also quite a swift eye opener to the genuinely horrific behaviour that basically the entire female population currently has to battle, and is pretty much exposed to on a daily basis.
So what happens when the social experiment is ramped up a notch to see how random bystanders react when the girl in question is heavily intoxicated? That’s what the makers of the following video set out to discover, as a girl clutching a paper-bag clad bottle stumbles down the streets of LA with a, faking a slurring game stronger than me after a Sunday Sesh at the Erko.
Scroll down to watch – but keep in mind, it’s pretty fucking disturbing:
The way that total strangers are so willing to prey on a girl who appears to clearly be in no state to be consenting is genuinely chilling – and also entirely symptomatic of the horrible culture of misogyny as well as people being absolute dickbags that contemporary society currently finds itself in.
No means no, people – no matter how out of sorts someone might appear. Let’s get that through our skulls, yeah?
