DRAW THE LINE

Engaging Ontarians in a dialogue about sexual violence.

A community member has been texting your friend inappropriate messages.

Do you tell someone?

Why Draw the Line

When we look away from sexual violence we make it easier for the perpetrator to continue – and the violence. Every choice we make and every action we take – no matter how small – has the power to make a difference.

When to Draw the Line

Consent matters. Consent is something that must be asked for every step of the way. What's more, texts of a sexual nature are types of sexual harassment and should not be allowed or accepted.

How to Draw the Line

Getting involved doesn't have to be (and ideally shouldn't be) a big deal. You always have options:

  • Let others know where you stand on sexual violence.
  • Encourage your friend not to respond to the texts and to change her number.
  • Check in with your friend and ask if she's ok.
