harassment

It's all troll and games until somebody makes a "rape" joke.

Back in August, Olivia Melville was the subject of a online abuse after a screenshot of her Tinder profile was uploaded to a stranger's Facebook page. A mutual friend alerted Olivia and soon her friends came to her defense. That's when things got heated.

The post began picking up traction across Facebook, until one person (Zane) began dropping rape threats and other violence towards Olivia.

Now, Zane faces 3 years in prison.

The twitter hashtag #NoWomanEver was started by Twitter user from Atlanta, @ImJustCeej. She decided to share some of her own experiences and it didn't take long for the rest of the internet to catch on.

Soon, women on Twitter were sharing their own snarky harassment stories of their own. In a mixture of funny and sad, the hashtag #NoWomanEver just goes to show just how trashy some men can be.

Do better, dudes.

In what is a sad view of the state of reality, BBC reporter Sarah Teale was instantly harassed on the street when she finished her introduction about street harassment.

The BBC followed up with the reporter after the incident:

The East Midlands Today reporter said she was "genuinely shocked" by what the man said.

She said: "It's not banter, it's not funny and no-one should have to put up with it."

The TV presenter said it was good people were now talking about the issue but said claims the video was staged were "absolute nonsense".

She said: "It's fairly obvious from my reaction that it wasn't staged.

"If it is a craze it doesn't make it any less offensive."



Attention to this subject has been on the rise the last year or so, especially after a video of a woman walking down the street alone, receiving multiple cat calls, went viral.

Writer and comedian Elon James White had a simple question in response to the Walking in NYC as a Woman video: What if dudes started greeting each other that way? I mean, it's not weird or sexual if dudes do that with one another like they do to women, right? Thus, #DudesGreetingDudes was born.
