Guardian Author Who Called for End of Catcalling now Regrets she is not Catcalled

Writing for the Guardian, Jessica Valenti, feminist and mind-boggling hypocrite, called for the end of catcalling last year. Today, she published an article in which she said that she misses being catcalled.

The 2014 article was titled, “The end of hisses, whistles and stares: we need to walk the streets without fear.” In it, Valenti concluded, “Whatever the method, something needs to be done. Because while street harassment is just one of many violations that American women endure, its prevalence is a clear message to women and men: there are no safe spaces for women. We need to be able to walk the street and simply be in public without fear.”
Today, the same author penned an article originally titled “Men rarely catcall me any more. I hate that our culture makes me miss it.” Valenti explains, “To my great shame, the thought of not being worth men’s notice bothers me, even though I’m a seasoned feminist and I know better.”

Perhaps realizing the unbelievable hypocrisy, Valenti quickly changed the title of her new article to “One perk of older age? Fewer catcalls.” Unfortunately for Valenti, on the internet things are not often forgotten:
Of course, Valenti goes on to blame “culture” for making her feel bad that she is no longer being catcalled.

She stunningly concludes her new article, “Being harassed on the street is not a compliment, and it surely has never felt like one. For most, if not all women, it can be scary and sometimes dangerous to deal with. But I can admit that – even as a seasoned feminist – sexism is a powerful enough force to still reside my head. Maybe by acknowledging as much I can begin to let it go.”
