Dr. Lindsey Doe goes by the name Doe Eyes on YouTube and she recently posted a video directed at a boy who keeps asking her daughter out on a date after she repeatedly said no thanks.
“If someone tells you no in any way and you ask again, it’s not cool, it’s not attractive, it’s not respectful. It’s harassment.”
“Dear boy who likes my daughter. I don’t like how you treat [my daughter.] Are you confused? You probably picked up messages from society about how when you want something, you have to ‘try harder, go at it, do whatever you can to get it. Don’t give up!’ Maybe it’s for this reason that you repeatedly ask my daughter out. In the halls, on the bus, and you write her poems.”
Response to the video has been mixed. Some think it’s an important message while others question her method of publicly addressing the issue with the boy.
What do you think?
