W. Kamau Bell interviews New York City women about their experiences with being street harassed, and while the stories aren’t funny, Bell effectively uses humour to show how ridiculous cat-callers are.
Repeatedly women are told, on catcalling and many other subjects, to shut up and take a compliment. You, my community, rush to defend men you have never met, men who are long gone by the time I open up about my experience, men who will never hear how upset their actions made me feel.
