Men and women are too interconnected Female Student-Athletes Sample Scenario You're hanging out on campus with some of your friends. Another friend walks up to your group. As she does, several men sitting near you make "catcalls" and call her a "slut" and a "ho." Your friend is obviously upset, but no one in your group says anything. Train of Thought .....Is it true what they're saying?
.....Does that matter?
.....Why aren't my friends speaking up?
.....If I remain silent, am I endorsing the behavior of these men?
.....If I speak up, will they harass me?
.....Do I have a responsibility to my friend?

.....What should I do? Options 1. Keep quiet.

2. Tell my friends that we should confront the men about their sexist attitudes, but don't pursue it if they are uninterested.

3. Tell the men their comments are sexist and offend me, and that sexual harassment is a crime.

4. Say nothing now. Later talk to my friends about how we can confront sexism and harassment.

5. Personal Option: Men's movements are not independent of women's movements.
