All too often, when people discuss street harassment, some people who aren’t sexualized, antagonized, and intimidated on the regular bemoan these newfound “restrictions” to their interactions with strangers. Fear not, defensive dudes! It *is* possible to chat with or compliment a stranger without that stranger perceiving you as a threat. This is a handy little visual guide for the visual creatures out there. Check out Schrödinger’s Rapist for more specific advice on how approach strangers in public. Compliments relating to a person’s appearance should make it very clear that the compliment is about someone’s skill or taste, not about their body or sex appeal. When in doubt: don’t! Good luck.
