A new campaign launched by Police Scotland hopes to tackle male sexual claims.
A video for the Don’t Be That Guy campaign was shared on social media on Wednesday, highlighting misogyny and sexism as a gateway to sexual violence.
The video, which has already been viewed over 81,000 times, features several men asking various questions.
“Ever called a girl a doll?
“Or kicked off her whistle as she walked down the street?
“Ever stared at a woman on a bus?
“Or said ‘I would do that’ to your buddy.
“You ever compliment a girl, how nice …?”
“And you asked yourself why you didn’t get a thank you?
The questions escalate into more compulsive behavior and end with a saying: “Sexual violence begins long before you think it is doing it.”
The video was shared on Twitter by Nicola Sturgeon, who wrote, “This new campaign from @PoliceScotland is powerful and important.
