"It’s just a prank, calm down!"
When did harassing women become a prank? You can clearly see that this girl is trying to laugh it off even though she’s uncomfortable with it, and that is not okay. If I’m a feminazi for pointing this out, then so be it, I’m not going to tolerate this shit.
I would have grabbed that ponytail and ripped his hair right off his ugly head
He shouldve gotten his cap peeled back….
I agree with OP. In the video she gave him a hug just so his creepy ass would feel satisfied with his stupid little prank and leave her alone. I know that kind of reaction is common in a situation like this and I’m a guy so I can’t relate. But, I think ultimately the result of those smiles and hugs is these guys getting a weird sense of satisfaction and a self esteem boost. They believe the girl liked it and will continue to think that way until told different. Reacting to sexual harassment positively takes the lack of respect they have for women and their body and exacerbates it, which is dangerous. So, yeah that got them to leave quicker, but their behavior will continue as is or worsen and another girl will be on the receiving end at some point. Girls need to try and tell these creeps off and so do bystanders who witness it, because its not easy for and guys who are there and see this type of harassment take place need to verbally rip these scum bags a new one. They need to be embarrassed and feel shame In all honesty though, I don’t believe embarrassing is a tactic that will invoke a lot of change long term in a person, but at least it plants the seed what they are doing is wrong. Schools should make it mandatory for a few weeks to take time to discuss and learn about sexual harassment, especially at the middle school, high school, and college levels. Friends need to be able to call out and correct their friends on harassment and parents need to talk about it with their kids early and often. People need to be more vocal about it, because its the least reported crime there is. I remember reading an article that conducted a study and the percentage of blacks who would report rape / sexual assault than whites. Again, I understand its hard to come forward, its not easy to discuss with friends or family, but its important. Sweeping something like sexual assault under the rug doesn’t do anyone any favors, except the abusers.
