Open Source Women Back Each Other Up Project by [personal profile] vito_excalibur

Iwould like to start the Open Source Women Back Each Other Up Program.Here's my pledge: if I see somebody groping you in public, and you'renot moaning Yes! Yes! Yes!, I will break through your Somebody Else'sProblem invisibility field and come over and ask if you're okay. Ifyour situation looks dangerous enough I can't help on my own, I willcall over friends or, if it's a situation in which I think the copswould be on your side, I will call the cops. If you're being harassedby a guy, you can say so to me, even if you don't know me. I pledge Iwill distract him so you can get away, or I will tell him that he needsto leave, or whatever I can do to the best of my ability. I pledge thatyes, actually, because you are a woman I will give you the benefit ofthe doubt. If you tell me that a guy just did something shitty to you Iwill not refuse to look at any evidence and tell you that I know himand he's a great guy and you must have been imagining things. I havegreat loyalty to my male friends but I will not allow that to blind meto the fact that none of us are saints and even my best friends canscrew up and may need to be called on it. I pledge that I will walk youto your car if you don't feel safe walking alone at night, and then youcan drive me to mine.
