Surviving the World

A Photocomic Education by Dante Shepherd

Lesson #1238 - Harassment

I wrote this comic months ago, after seeing certain statements come up in harassment and rape reports over and over again. Yes, it certainly simplifies the issue, and no, it doesn't cover all types of harassment. But it's important to remember something - seeking attention is not the same as seeking harassment. If someone has been harassed or raped, then by definition, they were not asking for it. At some point, you can't shift the blame, and you will always be responsible for your own actions.

I'm sure some of you reading this are going to disagree. I don't care.

This isn't an easy subject, no matter the focus attempted at in the final panel. Hopefully it'll at least give us something to remember.

(On a side note, theSwede (my wife) asked that I make sure to point out that that is not her slip stretched out, but actually from my Halloween 'Freudian slip' costume from a couple years ago. So . . . now you know?)
