Just to preface, I am not here to talk about my actual daddy issues, though they are plentiful. I really want to talk about the problems with how the phrase “daddy issues” is used and how it reflects back on the individual.
Okay, so I’m sure most of us are familiar with catcalling - a noise or comment of a sexual nature made to a passerby. Maybe some of us have been catcalled or have catcalled at others. It is so prevalent in our society that just about every woman I have ever spoken to has had some experience with catcalling. Now, I know a lot of people, namely those who were never on the receiving end of catcalling, do not get why people are so pissed about it. It is just a complement, right?
I'm a bi female undergraduate student majoring in Psychology, with minors in Women and Gender Studies and African American Studies. I am passionate about issues of domestic violence and sexual assault, and intend to get my masters in social work in order to serve those populations.
