How to Silence Perves - without being a b*tch (*click here to comment)
It’s a Tweeter!
“If you don’t want to feel like a victim of sexist banter, choose not to respond to it like one.”@AddictiveDau #GetAddictedToTheGoodStuff
One of us was walking down the street recently, when up ahead, we saw some scaffolding with a group of builders milling around drinking tea.
Our heart sank.
We knew what was inevitably coming:
“Alright darling! Nice rack!”
“Heeeeey sexy, show us ya bum!”
(And this would be on a good day).
As every Addictive Daughter knows, there’s nothing more humiliating than being jeered at by a group of blokes trying to impress their mates with sexist “banter”.
What’s worse, even the most witty & eloquent of us often find ourselves struggling to respond to said jeering with a comeback that doesn’t sound totally naff.
Instead, we typically warble out a meek “F**k you!” before awkwardly shuffling off.
Well, NO MORE!
In today’s Life Nugget, we share with you our tried & tested solution to silencing perves – without being a b*tch.
This is a really juicy topic today, so we REALLY want to hear from you in the comments below. How have you responded to sexist jeering in the past? What was the reaction?
