Discussion of news topics with a point of view, including narratives by individuals regarding their own experiences

Recently when discussing street harassment, a friend reminded me of the platinum rule. Not the golden rule: “Treat others as you’d like to be treated.” Rather, “Treat others as they’d like to be treated by you.”

When it comes to street harassment, people often insist that they’d love if someone yelled compliments to them from the window of a passing car. That’s fine for you, but the majority of people who experience street harassment describe feelings of terror, anxiety and anger.

It’s not a compliment, and it’s not kind.
