Creating a safer community for everyone
Here is part two of yesterday’s comic post.
Update: Based on some feedback about the eerie similarity to XKCD’s stick figures…I drew my own! Thanks for the feedback.
I love your comics! I appreciate that you’re addressing street harassment in your work. I run a website and blog about street harassment and I’m going to post your comics and link back to your blog today.
Also, if you have suggestions for what men can do about street harassment for me to post, please let me know! http://streetharassment.wordpress.com/what-men-can-do-to-stop-street-harassment/ & http://streetharassment.wordpress.com/what-men-can-do-to-stop-street-harassment/ending-a-street-harassment-incident/
thanks & in solidarity
Thanks! Your website is great! There isn’t enough discussion about street harassment and if there is, it’s usually a justification or denial of how significant it is. Also, the people who are talking about it are mostly women. I was pleased to see your “For Men” section. Most prevention work with men treats them as potential perpetrators. However, if we want more people to step up and confront this behavior, we need to teach them the skills to be helpful. I’ll see if I have any material that can add to your section. If so, I’ll send it your way. Keep up the good work!
Hey Jerrod. Great post. I was out this weekend and saw this exact thing happening. It was actually pretty pathetic to see. Keep up the good work.
