    Re: How Much Of This Is Truly Harassment????

    Alright I watched the video. Out of all the comments/incidents I scored 11 to be harassment and 15 that should never have been included in a video that was suppose to show harassment. If this is the best whatever organization is trying to prove women being harassed in NYC after walking the streets of ten friggen hours, then NYC doesn't have a problem.

    Can we talk? I have been out with the girlfriends, where I have witnessed things coming out of their mouths that are not any worse than most of the comments on this video yet I don't see CNN posting a dang video on harassment of men. Just let a hunk-a-li-cious male walk across the floor during "happy hour" across this land and you will hear whistles coming from women, and comments like " oh baby where have you been all my life", "come to mama". This video was to promote an agenda to further claim men are insensitive bastards, a part of the war on women. What a bunch of crap. According to these standards the old guy who is the greeter at Meijer's that complimented me on being so pretty is another asshole. Oh paleez. This gender bender crap has got to come to an end.

    Sorry, but only an idiot or someone with an ax to grind would think this video is trying to imply all men are jerks. Of COURSE most men don't do that. But the point is enough do to make for a crappy, stressful, or even frightening experience.

    And sure, some men get similar treatment but it is nowhere near as often and the fear factor is rarely there. I would ask men who don't think this is a big deal to put themselves in the woman's place but imagine all those comments were coming from gay men who were much larger and stronger than you. An unwanted advance is an unwanted advance regardless of the sexual orientation. And the physical power differential is what engenders the fear.

    Fear Factor? Are you telling me a woman that stalks a man there is no fear factor and it is any less common than a male? A woman that threatens a man with harassment simply because he told her she looked good at a place at employment? Men are now walking on eggshells. Sorry but the physical difference doesn't give women a pass.
    For the love of Pete, I want equality. And for a woman to truly obtain equality it can not be by using some lame excuse that excuses her from the same so called bad behavior.

    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    A pass to what? To feel the way they feel?
    And yes, stalking by anyone is bad, but that isn't what this thread is about.

    The problem is most self described MRAs are douches, which detracts from some of the good points they have, such as bias in family courts.

    Well if stalking isn't part of this thread then feelings shouldn't be either. Bottom line, women need to be accountable for doing the same things they claim men do to them that they like to call harassment. If we are ever going to be considered truly equal then the standards can not be double standards.

    That's true. Apparently, only the men in NYC.
    The title of the story is:





    What 10 hours of street harassment in NYC looks like

    Ten hours of harassment. Sorry, but this wasn't ten hours of harassment. It was a few minutes of video taken from ten hours of walking, but gives the impression that the woman was harassed for ten hours straight. I see it as blatant dishonesty on the part of those who made the video, and on the part of CNN who is pushing it as representative of how women get treated in NYC. I could get treated that way by going to the right part of town.

    Actually, after viewing that video and reading some of the comments, let me go on the record as saying, yes, female harassment is real but this video cheapened those incidents. It also showed an agenda of trying to paint males in an unjust manner while not addressing females that are just as "guilty" of what they claim. War on women which is really a war on men by the same ilk using double standards.

    The title of the story is...
    The title of the VIDEO is: "10 Hours of Walking in NYC as a Woman"

    The creators of the video are not responsible for CNN's headlines. And the creators are being very clear that they edited 10 hours of walking down to 2 minutes.


    I could get treated that way by going to the right part of town.
    And maybe... just maybe... the point is that you SHOULDN'T be treated that way, in ANY part of town.
