Daily Nightmare (Daymare)

This morning I was catcalled by the satpam (security guard) stationed at the security post in my housing complex. That’s right, they’re there to ensure my safety, yet they think they’re entitled to ogle me and violate my privacy on my morning run. When I told them off, they just laughed hysterically. Living alone in Jakarta as a woman is exhausting. But trying to traverse its public spaces alone is a daily nightmare. Er, daymare. If they do it again, I’m taking their photo, reporting them to my tuan rumah, and shaming them here :).
