-Warning Feminist Rant Ahead-
Actually, it’s just a concern for the humanity of the world we live in. I have been in a course that focuses on the major issues that exist in our patriarchal society. It’s saddening to say, today I witnessed exactly how our current time has not changed much for women.
I will save you the full story, but I will say I am highly disappointed in the Burbank Police Department, and yes I am calling them out. Me and my girlfriend were told today to basically drop it, against a guy who tried to harm us with his car and then proceeded to follow us while continuing to try to push us off the road with his car. In their words, “Oh he’s an attorney and so he seems harmless, no one got hurt and there was no damage done.” Excuse me? This guy attempted multiple times to crash into us and push us into oncoming traffic, mind you his reasoning was because my gf was driving the speed limit in a park with children in it. He did not approve, I guess. That warranted his behavior. Then when she pulled a U turn, attempting to get away from this and proceeded to go try to park in an apartment complex garage, he followed! This guy continued to harass us and name call, coming towards our car multiple times in a rage, threatening us. Needless to say, my anxiety level was through the roof and I was on the verge of tears from fear. So, excuse me officers but that doesn’t seem ok to me, and “not a big deal”. When we went to the station to try to file a report, because no report was filed, the lady told us, “It’s best to let it go and not create a problem.” SO, my rant today is basically to stand up and say things like this shouldn’t be ok. It shouldn’t be ok for a man to do this to two women who were practicing safe driving and being aware of our surroundings. It shouldn’t be ok for a man to make a woman feel so much fear, in any situation. This all comes on the day of the Women’s March, which we did not attend because we wanted a peaceful and relaxed day after working so hard this week. Needless to say a man tried to ruin our peaceful day. All he did was spark a fire in me and my gf to stand up and speak up. I encourage every woman to do the same. No QOTD.
