A little late on the boat for this one, (or there may be another thread like this...), but I want to hear some opinions.

Most of us have heard the 2 minute "10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman" video. It's an extremely cut video of a woman simply fast-walking in many parts of Manhattan, getting "cat-calls" and compliments. It's gone kinda viral, with more than 31 mil+ views. Please, take a look.

Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1XGPvbWn0A

As a human being, I am allowed to express my opinion. Any opinion is valid and can have their own foundations of reasoning. As a man, I find that this video cannot live up to the message it's trying to offer and far away from its goal. What is the goal though?

The goal: To stop street harassment.

Call me blind if you'd like, but that video can't live up to it's message. This is a woman walking for 10 hours, cut into a 2 minute time-waster. Then comes the editing magic. Lets only place in the few "street harassers" we got and compile them into a 2 minute stream.

This video leaves a lot of questions to be answered, and some at guess. You honestly cannot "stop" street harassment, because in my opinion, it's not even real. Every single person on this earth is a different individual. You got a woman walking in a rough city, and yeah, you're gonna get some sleazy men out there "cat-calling". It is what it is. They may reside in that part of the neighborhood for a reason, get over it.

Although, you had men that would just say, "hi, how are you?". So... that's harassment now? Women hardly spark up conversations anymore. If you don't want men to say "hi", then rethink this.

Anyway, that's my opinion. I tried to shorten it up in short points, as I didn't want to elaborate. I just find this video displeasing honestly, that the message isn't even really there. The facts can't add up even if it wanted too.

What's your opinion on this video?
