When I walk down the sidewalks in Toledo, or the hallways of Roy C, I would like to go down it peacefully without worrying about getting cat called, or boys thinking it’s okay to touch girls’ butts.
Guys nowadays think it’s acceptable to whistle and holler from the windows of their car to a teenage girl who is minding her own business. It’s not acceptable. We are not dogs, we are human beings, just like the majority of the boy population.
Another thing I would like to bring up in my article is a girl’s designated dress code that men, and or women, set up. I should be able to wear shorts and a short sleeved shirt without getting labeled as a ‘slut.’
I should not have to worry about a boy smacking my behind for being dressed for the weather. If it’s 90 degrees outside, I will not wear a sweatshirt and sweat pants.
I will not sit around and allow boys to treat me like a toy.
