A catcall is entirely about reminding you that you are not yours. The purity myth is entirely about reminding you that you are not yours. The fetishization of female purity in a world where catcalls are an acceptable form of communication telegraphs one thing very clearly:
“Women, stop sexualizing yourselves—that’s our job, and you’re taking all the fun out of it.”
The sexualization of women is only appealing if it’s nonconsensual. Otherwise it’s “sluttiness,” and sluttiness is agency and agency is threatening.

So in an effort to get healthier, I started to look at my sugar intake. True, I am also trying to lose weight, but there are other important reasons why I’m doing this:
- I have a higher risk of diabetes due to genetics and another disorder. My boyfriend, family, and doctors have been pushing me to eat less sugar because of it.
- I don’t want to spend as much money on sweets (I’m the person who buys the $10 Slushee every time she goes to the movies).
- I don’t want to go to the gym just so I can eat whatever I want. I want to be healthy all the way through.
Now, as someone who loves sweets, especially sugary drinks omg, I thought, “Whatever. I’ll just drink less soda a week, and everything will be okay.” Little did I realize how fucking terrifying refined sugar actually is.
1. The first thing I did was figure out the maximum amount of refined sugar I could be eating per day.
