Quick Hit: That’s not cool!

Over at my day job, I’m currently working addressing global violence against women by engaging men and boys through media and culture. To that end a colleague shared this site with me which IS IN FACT PRETTY COOL.

In addition to the fun and funny videos, you can send your boo a “callout card” for acting like a tool.

From their site:

Your cell phone, IM, and online profile are all digital extensions of who you are. When someone you’re with pressures or disrespects you in those places, that’s not cool. That’s Not Cool provides tools to help you draw your digital line about what is, or is not, okay in your relationships.

Now in situations of violence or where your safety is threatened, a callout card won’t solve the problem. And the site, That’s Not Cool is sponsored and co-created by Futures Without Violence (formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund), the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women, and the Advertising Council has resources available to help. But, many of us live by snark alone and could use a way to let erstwhile sweeties know that their behavior is wack. So, rock on, I say.
