The British government created this and other posters in 1939 before the outbreak of World War II to inspire its people. This particular poster was never publicly displayed, but it was rediscovered in 2000 and now can be found in literally millions of girl's dorm rooms.

World War 1 Poster (American)
When considering discussions regarding female street harassment and online gaming harassment, I find it ironic that this poster antagonizes women. In gaming culture, men actively pursue women, they are not the ones "knowing to say no." The poster implies that women and prostitutes are part of the same problem regarding sexual disease. This poster also provides an alienating and heterosexually charged space that is governed by patriarchy within militainment and gaming culture.
