    I just saw this anecdote and it was quite heartening, basically about how someone dealt with a street-harasser in quite a smart way. http://myfaultimfemale.wordpress.com...reet-harasser/

    I don't see why we can't all come to an agreement that street harassment is an undesirable thing regardless of who the perp. is, and that by perhaps confronting these people in a reasonable way (both if it happens to you or if it's your chum who feels the need) we can apply a bit of pressure and change societal norms...of course that's not going to change everyone's mind but that isn't an excuse for doing nothing. No one's asking for new laws, just a bit of consideration!
