“I feel conflicted. With this image, the humor aspect is important because of how, despite the seriousness of these topics, playfulness can be used to lighten heavy discussions. These discussions are totally necessary and crucial in securing safety and fairness, and humor can be a device to approach the dialogue in a lighthearted, open manner.

In another sense the playful approach of the topic ties it to the darksided humor of how pathetic it can feel that we still need to be having these discussions and reminding people of the importance of our common human rights.

It’s understood what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is yours, it’s simple. You wouldn’t just take someone’s coat off their back because you want it, you think it would look good on you, or you think you deserve it. Same goes for people. Why does it get so confusing when it’s in reference to other humans? And why is the most appropriate metaphor for a human being, as a victim of sexual assault, a coat?

They’re not yours to just have/take/use, and consent is 100% crucial.

While this image is a light and somewhat goofy comment, it’s rooted in speech that needs to be shouted, understood, and acted on. Anything less is disgusting, shameful, and unacceptable.”
