For the record, sexual harassment and assault is an issue that people of all gender identities face — and in light of the #MeToo movement, we've put together a guide about how to prevent common forms of harassment.
Pro tip: These prevention tactics apply toward everyone!
1. Don't make comments about their body if they don't specifically ask you to.
2. Don't bug them to go out on a date with you, especially if they've already said "no" at least once.
3. Don't send unsolicited pictures of your genitals.
4. Don't touch someone's body without asking (or if they've already said no).
5. Don't make excuses for your friends' douchey behavior.
6. Stop using your position of power to get someone to go out or hook up with you.
7. If you've sent them several texts, letters, emails, or smoke signals, and they've gone unanswered, stop.
8. Don't make sexist jokes.
9. Don't leer, catcall, or whistle, period.
10. If they're drunk, do not assume this is "your chance."
11. Don't assume your partner will always want to have sex with you.
12. If you aren't a personal friend, do not ask them about their sex lives.
13. Do not share their nudes.
14. Stop judging people by their sexuality.
15. Don't tell someone to smile, to put on makeup, or to get rid of their resting bitch face...
16. Use your privilege to stand up for them.
17. If they tell you they were assaulted, don't assume they're exaggerating or that it was their fault.
