Excerpt from MomZette

The Feminist Action Club at Sierra College in Rocklin, California, has started handing out “harassment cards” to men who cross their imaginary line of decorum and — horror of horrors — “offend” them.
“We are proud that our Harassment Cards have brought national awareness to our organization,” the group posted to its Facebook page on Oct. 14.
“This resource was designed to be a non-confrontational method of addressing verbal harassment and was modeled after a similar card that we received from the Collective Action for Safe Spaces in Washington, D.C., during the National Conference for College Women Leaders [AAUW’s National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (Nccwsl)], [which] some of our members attended in 2015.”
The Collective Action for Safe Spaces website offers the tagline, “If It’s Unwanted, It’s Harassment.” So if a college male asks a woman on a date and it is unwanted — is he harassing her, then?
