A man makes a disgusting/hateful/degrading comment towards a woman.
That woman must now decide if it’s worth “rocking the boat” by bringing it up.
“Rocking the boat” can mean a variety of things, all of which are a risk to the woman…
She might be putting her job at risk.
She might be putting her standing in the community at risk.
She might be putting her physical safety at risk.
Do you see it? The disgusting behavior isn’t consider “rocking the boat.” Demanding accountability for it is.
The disgusting behavior is the boat. It’s always been the boat. And we’re all stuck in it until we decide not to be.
Let’s break the fucking boat.
