Because ignoring them does not send any sort of message at all.
You're absolutely right, there.
I think I slapped the boy that snapped my bra strap in the 4th or 5th grade. I bit the boy that wouldn't leave me alone, and chased me into my house. (I got in trouble for that one.)
I never told about the man that approached me on the street on my way home from church, asking if I wanted to "make some money."
I was terrified of the men who chased me down in a car when I was walking home along a busy street at about age 13. I grabbed the first woman I ran across, and asked her to walk me the rest of the way home.
I was just pissed about the boys standing outside the south door of the high school grabbing girls' breasts as they walked out the door - didn't report them, but damn, I should have!
This sort of shit was every day... and there's not one bit of it that's acceptable,
I hope that every one of the men and boys that perpetrated it are awash with guilt and shame every single day of their lives.
I did not report Halperin to ABC because I thought I was the only one, and I blamed myself, and I was embarrassed and I was scared of him.— Emily Miller (@EmilyMiller) October 26, 2017
