Imagine dealing with this every day (Men only - Women already know what it's like)

Hollaback!, an anti-street harassment organization, which recently teamed up with the video marketing agency Rob Bliss Creative to show what it’s like to walk down the street alone as a woman: totally exhausting, reliably demeaning, and occasionally, terrifying.
To film the video, Rob Bliss outfitted a backpack with a hidden camera and walked across New York City streets for ten hours in front of actress Shoshana B. Roberts, who was dressed in jeans and a T-shirt and holding a microphone in each hand.  Link
I found this to be pretty chilling.

This is not men "being friendly" and it is not giving another person a compliment. It's harassment, it's scary for women, and it's vile.

Not surprisingly, she is now getting rape threats. Or should I say, continued rape threats.
