A new service is angling to help out women worried about how their rejection will be handled by overly-aggressive gentleman callers. It’s called the Feminist Phone Intervention, and it’s a brilliantly simple trick for socially active.
It works like this: The next time you give a man your number to get him to leave you alone, use this one: (669) 221-6251, courtesy of the folks over Feminist Intervention. When someone calls that number, they’ll reach a computer-recorded message of a bell hooks quotation — so you can “protect your privacy while dropping some feminist knowledge when your unwanted ‘suitor’ calls or texts,” the website explains. It works for texts, too.
so useful. spread this shit like wildfire
We shouldn’t need this, but I’m glad we have it
But what if a girl won’t leave a guy alone?
Then this isn’t for you. Shockingly, women can have resources that don’t have to be all about men. Shockingly, we can celebrate helping women stay safe without giving a shit about what men think about it.
