When I heard about the campaign I was happy for the opportunity to express my strong dissatisfaction with not only the act of harassment that has become common place, but also for persons attitude toward it. The most memorable experience for me with harassment is on one occasion walking downtown with my sister. A man made a rude comment about the appearance of my crotch and what he would like to do to me. This was not altogether uncommon. We promptly let him know that this was very disgusting comment and not acceptable. What was very surprising though, was that another passer-by, a man, promptly stepped in to defend him and his behavior. This was a shock to me, that persons really don’t get it! It’s not cool! They actually think they are doing us a favor by letting us know that we are desirable. I think it’s time to let them know that we don’t need every Tom, Dick and Harry on the road watching us up and down lusting… Every man that does that immediately loses my respect.
