bart victim-blaming poster

BART issues a helpful poster explaining to women how to conduct themselves so they won't be harassed. Apart from the ubiquitous victim-blaming, note "Don't get distracted, phones, music, and sleeping can make you a target."

Many, many women use earbuds to deter creepers. It doesn't always work, but it cuts back on people assuming you're available for conversation.

I'd love to live in the universe where BART and others put up posters telling passengers how to defend other passengers against creepers.

I'm glad to see this - for one thing, I was in serious danger of forgetting that as a woman I must give up any thoughts of privacy, comfort, or amusement when travelling. Thank goodness I've been reminded of my place in the world.

ARGH ARGH ARGH KILL IT WITH FIRE

Every time I see anything like this, I have the temptation to write, "Female citizens: Make sure he rapes the other girl."
