    And maybe... just maybe... the point is that you SHOULDN'T be treated that way, in ANY part of town.
    There are many things that shouldn't happen, but they do anyway. People shouldn't be raped, killed, robbed, abused, lied to, and a huge laundry list of other offenses. Forgive me if I dont take a biased video, made with the purpose of making men look like assholesl quite as seriously as other more pressing issues.

    Men are pretty friggin weak animals if all it takes to make them look stupid is to have a female walk down the street don't ya think?

    Biased video? How about just a video? Why is it biased? There's purpose to it, but there was no entrapment or trick.

    There's an overwhelming indirect, and in some cases direct, feeling here that most people are more angry with the young lady than there are with the men.

    Which of course just continues to justify the cycle of behavior the video is trying to show.

    Some of it was harassment, some of it was male silliness, and some of it was just men trying to be friendly. Overall some of the actions I saw in the video I found to be rather disgusting, but nothing I haven't seen or experienced myself before.

    .
    I have explained in several other posts how it is biased. As for anger with her? Not me. I don't care what she does or how she does it. You asked our opinion on the video, and which instances were harassment. Several of them are, but the video isn't representative of the actual 10 walk in NYC. It's selected excerpts to make it look as if harassment is much more common than it actually is. I dislike dishonesty and misrepresentation in all its forms.

    Wait until she's old and fat, and no men notice her anymore. And yes, it will happen, and she will look back on this fondly and wish it was still happening.

    When I was young and pretty and blonde i always got catcalls and comments and "Hey babe" and all that ****. I worked in Newark NJ for a few years, and as a blonde woman in her early 20s I not only got it from other business people but I also got followed and all that by the homeless and the drug thugs who permeated that city. BFD.

    This whole video thing was a joke. 2 minutes out of 10 hours, and the entire snipping was made to make men look like idiots.

    I miss the days that I attracted the attention of men, and I look pretty damn good for 52 years old, married to the same guy for a quarter of a century and having 3 kids. It simply doesn't happen anymore especially when there are young girls wearing tight shirts and miniskirts on the same sidewalk.

    Harassment. WTF is up with the misuse of that word. Harassment of a woman involves sending her unwanted messages, waiting outside her place of business for her, kidnapping and killing her cat, sending dead roses in the mail....this isn't harassment. This was a joke and not even a funny one.

    No I don't have a video of a women whistling at a good looking male, and making comments equivalent to those some of the men made in this video to the woman. I don't know anyone who would waste their time to produce one. But you certainly can find such behavior from women in public places. The difference is when a man does it, it is called harassment by the standards set in this video. When a women does it, it is called being friendly. Some of the things in the film were clearly harassment but much of it was no different than how some women behave toward men. Double standards.

    Love this post.

    I just found the whole video rather weird. I don't live in the US, never been to NY but i imagine in a City of over 8 million people, there would be an abundance of very attractive girls walking at various times around the City. These guys are acting as though they have never seen an attractive girl before in their life. Just bizzare. It's obviously been heavily edited to paint males as creepy and isn't a true indication of how men in NYC act when they come face to face with an attractive female as a whole.

    It's not that. (she's a theater major with a black belt) but, in her own biography she exploits the fact she has 34DD breasts yet she wants people to ignore her body in public. Besides, I seen these sort of 'social experiments before. IMO she's a man hater.

    I agree, it was heavily edited! No idea where you live Serenity, but NYC in my opinion is one of those places that you "must see" before you die. I grew up in NJ and could see the skyline from my bedroom. It's an amazing place.
