The Bathroom Is Safe - Let's Work on the Real Problem Instead!

My two favorite sections from this kick-ass opinion piece at HuffPo"
"Women are sexually harassed and sexually assaulted on school campuses, on the street, at their jobs, on the Internet, in their own homes, in ANY public place. And it has been excused or ignored for so long because of what you and I are taught from the first years of our interactions with each other: You, as a male, are not accountable for your own actions. It’s MY responsibility, as a female, to not “provoke” you." 
"Stop asking “How would you feel if that was your mother or sister?” It shouldn’t take the comparison to clue you in to what’s right or wrong."

My only thing is I'm not keen on the criticism of Victoria's Secret. Nothing wrong with a woman wanting to dress sexy! Other than that, I love this piece so much. Really excellent points about the two-faced-ness of this bathroom outrage. Ugh.
