Free self defense workshop tomorrow!

lilmissnever :

Sometimes the leather daddies like my hair. Sometimes a car slows down to hoot and holler. Sometimes some guy mumbles something as we pass each other and takes terrible offense when I ignore him. I wish that the mumblers and the stumblers, the inept Lotharios and guys in cars could understand that they are progressing down the street thinking, "Hey, that's a pretty girl," but I am walking down the street thinking "If that guy makes a move towards me, I am going to elbow him in the face, grab his hair, and ram his head into my knee."

Full post here.

Also, I figure I should use this as a segue to plug the CUAV SafetyFest workshop I'll be co-facilitating tomorrow with Self Defense for Self Determination, a queer and trans people of color collective:

Come yell, kick, and talk it out with us! Learn and share skills for the daily verbal and physical self-defense situations we encounter.
