Santa Barbara harrassment
To the sexist jerks who yelled out "Show us your tits! Show us your
cans!" to the woman driving next to their White Ford Explorer
(California license plate number 5EWL017) yesterday at Storke &
Hollister, this behavior is NOT OK.
Using that language with someone you don't know is clearly offensive,
and I'm sure you have mothers/sisters/lovers/friends who you would not
want to be treated that way. To harass a woman verbally is still a
VIOLENT act and she could be deeply hurt by what you did. (For
instance, you don't know what kind of traumas she may have
experienced that could be made worse by what you did. Over one in six
American women are victims of sexual assault - see
For those in the car who did not stop the ringleaders, you are also to
blame but can still speak up and tell your friends they were wrong.
To anyone who knows the driver and his friends, or identifies this car
driving around Santa Barbara, please pass on this message in whatever
way you feel is appropriate.
