This isn’t actually a story of harassment, but I thought it might be nice to share some good news.
A couple of months ago, I was walking back from the Metro and two different men (that is, at different places) stopped to say “That’s a very nice dress” and “I like your dress.”
No hassling, no punchlines, no escalations.
But I thought I would mention this to illustrate the fact that it really is possible to compliment a stranger on the street without degrading or demeaning or pulling a power trip.
