Stalking is not a joke

Stalking is often treated as a joke or “not that big of a deal.” Why do you think that is?
I admit, I was guilty of this very same thing just last night.  I was at my bi-weekly women's game night and added one of the other players on a social site.  When it popped up on her phone, she held it up for everyone to see and made a crack about "some strange person friending" her.  I said, "Could be a stalker."
While I am not a stalker, treating it as a punchline is wrong and perpetuates the problems that many victims receive when they do report their stalkers.
