Men get a taste of the sex harassment gauntlet
Web and video games are not generally known for inspiring feminist understanding. On the contrary, conventional video games are often criticised for perpetuating sexist and misogynistic values and stereotypes. Which is what makes a new web game, Hey Baby , so interesting. The game is quite simple. Men approach you (a woman) and say something like "I like your bounce baby" or "Excuse me, do you have a boyfriend?" They also yell obscenities and threaten imminent sexual violence. You can either shoot them or you can say "Thank you, have a great day".

Naturally I decided to talk to fewer people since, but I just think it is more appropriate that if a person is offended by me they should address me directly. At least then I can ...
