What To Do The Next Time A Creeper Asks For Your Number

1
Overly-persistent men can be annoying and unsettling for many reasons. Perhaps the most common offender is the dude who just won't stop hounding you for your phone number. It's hard to know what to do in these situations; a lot of guys won't take "no" for an answer. (Plus, now that we're grownups, we can no longer give our best friend's phone number instead.) So, the next time you're getting ready for a night out, commit this to memory: (669) 221-6251.
That's the number for the Feminist Phone Intervention hotline. What does that mean, exactly? Anyone who calls or texts will receive a feminist quote as a prize for their efforts. These pearls of wisdom come from celebrated, woman-empowering scholar and activist, bell hooks. So, not only will that creep become totally confused; he will also get some food for thought and a surprise lesson in feminism — which, if he was prodding unrelentingly for your number in the first place, he probably really needed.
