I love this cartoon! Friendly chats with strangers make for great communities, and we at CASS uphold community involvement as a powerful tool to connect individuals and improve our home lives and neighborhoods.
At the same time, it is crucial to be aware of how engagement with another — however intentionally friendly — might be unwanted, particularly when it runs the line of being perceived as sexually-motivated. Ultimately, men and women alike should be allowed to freely read a book (TW), listen to music, go for a run, and grocery shop without the threat of sexual harassment — even if that means someone else might feel shot down when trying to approach them.
