First of all, how hilarious is this stock image for “sexual harassment?” Like, what even is going on here? Is this supposed to be a train conductor pinching present-day Joan Holloway’s butt or something? Idk. But anyways. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk about a woman who recently combated a random act of sexual harassment with one amaaazing Craigslist “Missed Connections” post.

The story goes like this: Woman, exhausted from a long day at work and waiting for public transportation, gets hollered at by dude in a truck. Dude yells some vulgar nonsense about whether she’s wearing a thong and then speeds a way before she can tell him to go F himself. Woman gets home and takes the dirty dude down on Craigslist.

Except it’s SO much more than that.

This. All of this. And everything that she said both before AND after this. Such as:

I couldn’t have said it better myself, so I won’t. But what this woman did is SO important because these things need to be mentioned and talked about and taught to boys and girls alike that it’s not okay and it’s not wanted and when someone does what this dude did, all it’s doing is making a stranger feel really uncomfortable. And it needs to stop.

You can (and should) read the unnamed woman’s entire post here.
