Maybe this isn't very "feminist" of me, but I really don't give a damn if a guy on the street addresses me as "baby" or "honey" or "sweetheart". I'm not going to lash back, "I am NOT your baby!" and not because I don't want him to call me a "bitch" or worse instead to lick his wounded ego, but because I actually like it, just like I like being called a "girl" instead of a "woman". I know I'm supposed to think it's demeaning or that it diminishes me as a female-person, but I don't. And I'm not "sorry".
