I saw the post, and I had heard of it before, but I wasn't aware of an expanded purpose beyond taking and posting pictures. Interesting.

I've experienced the gamut of street harassment from the more innocuous whistling at me to come to them like I'm some kind of dog to some of them trying to kiss me on the street or grab me. Now it...

I'm torn between trying to straighten my own hair and the wig or weave option. I wish I could work with my hair texture instead of against it.
