Playboy has been saying for the last few years that they want to change their image. They’ve decided they’re done with the seedy, no-girls-allowed, hide-your-magazines days of yore and are ready to be your one stop shop for all your (naked) feminism needs. While you may raise an eyebrow at the sincerity and actual depth of their feminist claims, they’ve actually been doing a bang-up job as of late. The first step to embracing this new image, of course, is giving over to their new Supreme Ruler Beyonce, which they have eagerly done.
The next step was to create this handy flowchart, informing men of the do’s and don’ts of catcalling. Because there are still many many men (and some women) who see street harassment as (at best) a compliment or (at worst) their right, instead of (at best) insulting or (at worst) terrifying. It turns out, according to playboy.com, there are only two acceptable times for catcalling and, yes, one of those is if you are beckoning an actual cat.
Well done, Playboy. Next up: the Playboy book club, which alternates exclusively between bell hooks Henry Miller.
