“She put herself in that situation “

 

I was having a conversation with another woman at my gym about sexual harassment.. how a young woman can be walking down the street looking pretty in a summer dress to have a guy cat call at her ” Nice tits! ” She said to me ” I just won’t put myself in that situation ” I had to bite my tongue hard. I have to keep my opinions neutral at my gym because I have had problems in other gyms..and my workouts are my sanctuary from the fucked up world.. so I just said ” No woman put’s herself into that situation.. men put her into the situation by creating the situation due to their ignorance, arrogance and their sexual aggression.”

But that’s how many people in my community of Kelowna BC view me.. or judge me.. as putting myself into the situation of asking for it.. asking for sexual harassment.. what they don’t have is the intelligence to see is that shining a light on the problem; by diving into it head first, will lead to the solution to the problem.. because the problem exists with or with out me writing about women’s sexuality or publishing my sensual professional photography.. the problem is much bigger than me or any one woman..as it affects all women world wide..and it has for millenniums.. the problem is ignorance.

I was also talking to another women before that.. and she said to me ” Gracie you are such an intelligent woman..it must be so difficult for you trying to get people to comprehend ..who are not able or willing.. I think the world is a very frustrating place for intelligent people like yourself.” She was so correct and of course it would take another intelligent or aware person to understand the frustration of the shit of ignorance.

Every woman can be thrust into that situation ( sexual harassment ) at anytime.. even if she is alone in her own bedroom.. her home can be broken into and she could be raped and murdered.. women are not safe from the situation until society sheds it’s ignorance and stops blaming her for the situation.. but starts educating men as to them creating the situation due to male entitlement and double standards..but in the same breath other women need to be educated to the fact that their own sex isn’t responsible for the situation put upon them by sexually abusive men.. society in general is sexually abusive and constantly sexually harassing women.. our sexuality is the main selling force behind multiple and major products.. so women have all become sex symbols.. we have become a product vs being people..

But.. the hardest thing to fight isn’t greed or violence ..it’s the ignorance or fear that causes the behaviors..

The most difficult thing about fighting ignorance..is that many don’t have a level of comprehension within them to even know or articulate their own ignorance..

So to wrap it up.. I didn’t put myself in the situation.. the situation put me in the situation ..if I published my story about the situation or not.. the situation existed before me and past me.. but the only way through the puzzle or the matrix of the situation is through the center of it.. it’s right through the eye of the needle.. that’s how to break on through to the other side..and that will be the solution..
