    Now some of it is outright harassment, but is all of it?

    Please watch the rather short video.
    I've seen this video, and yes most of this is harassment. This is something that men don't experience, and can't really relate to. Imagine this is your regular day. Every day. No matter what you are wearing. (I've been harassed plenty of times wearing a winter coat, no makeup, and hair in a ponytail) It just gets really old, and it's rude at best, scary at worst. Whether you want to call it harassment or just annoying doesn't really matter. It shouldn't happen.

    They do this when other men aren't around on purpose.

    Maybe making two versions available... a full version and a "sound bite" version. Then, at least, the full info is there to shoot down the point that it might be deceptively edited.
    Two versions would have been good, I agree.

    And no, to other posters -this isn't about a feminist war on men. Would you like YOUR daughter, sister, mother, wife, to go through this - every day? They are going through this, by the way. How often depends how often they are out and about. And no, the answer isn't to keep them home or make them wear a burka. The answer is for men to learn - from other men, from their parents, from their peers - that this isn't appropriate.

    As krussll says

I wouldn't have walked the city wearing what she was wearing, and I wouldn't have done it alone. I not even in NYC, but in Texas, and I'm a good bit older than the woman in the vid, but I have the sense not to essentially ask for that type of treatment by men.

    I'm sure that the point of the video was probably to shame men for acting like asses, but seriously, by looking at the men in the video, who acted like they did, I wouldn't expect otherwise. Put the woman doing a similar "experiment" on Wall Street, and you'll very likely get a completely different result.
    Put her in North St. Louis or South Chicago and I guarantee there would be a different result....and a crime scene.

    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.
    Oy.

    The purpose isn't to "make all men look like assholes." The purpose is to point out that street harassment happens, and that it's routine.

    It's the exact same thing Jessica Williams called out on the Daily Show recently. Is she also trying to make "all men look like assholes," because she (and a lot of other women) don't like being subjected, on a daily basis, to things that "shouldn't happen, but do anyway" ? (Jessica's Feminized Atmosphere - The Daily Show - Video Clip | Comedy Central)

    Well, I find most men who call MRA's douches, are douches because they put women on pedestals and let them walk all over them and think that is quite alright. They condone bad female behavior by defending it (commonly called white knighting). Behavior which, if it occurred among men, the man acting out would get knocked out and everyone would agree they had it coming. But since its a female, everyone jumps in to "save her" from her own bad conduct. In the end it sends the message that women can act however they want and there will always be some douche around to keep her out of trouble.
    - 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.

    As this guy point out, nothing but bilge.

    Saying Hi To a Woman = Harassment? Yes According to Feminists (10 Hours of Walking In NYC As a Woman - YouTube
    So, when the excessive politically correct inevitably land on this, make it a campaign issue, the resulting legislation is that women will / should receive no attention from men under fear of criminal prosecution.

    This end result is better how exactly? Cutting off a possible start of discourse, possibly leading to mutually consenting conversation.

    If a woman want's to be ignored, there's ways to dress and behave for that.

    And another vote for "it's all the woman's fault that men can't behave".

    Please. They could do a dozen videos, showing the same thing, without any editing, and someone would still nit-pick.


    Maybe that guy just happened to be walking in the same direction she was going for five minutes.
    Yes, because it is perfectly normal for two people to be walking in the exact same direction for five minutes, right along side each other, when they are total strangers.

    C'mon. It's creepy.
