  1. Boy, I’m kinda of on the fence about this one. It makes valid points but why do I feel it trivialized the issue with the ‘comic’ touches? It made street harrassment look like just a pesky annoyance for women instead of the scary thing it is, more often than not.

    1. We see your point, but we think it’s great that a mainstream TV show (and mainsteam male TV personality!) are highlighting street harassment. By having included people like Emily May, it’s clear that they did their research, which is always nice!

      We agree that sometimes making light of situations like street harassment can trivialize it but we think the comments made by the women interviewed (and the ridiculous comments made by some of the men!) proved that street harassment is more than just ‘complimenting’ women.
