Hmmmmm.
    I don't know about fatherless families but if I'm "checking you out" I sure don't see where that's harassment. Same goes for saying hello or commenting that you look good. I've always kind of just figured that was part of being friendly and polite.

    Coming from a rural area, I have to realize city folk think that talking to another human being in public is eccentric or off-putting. Some of the instances were what we do on a regular basis to men and women. Hello, how are you, have a good day, let me get that for you, are a regular feature in small town atmospheres. If I acted like a sincerely friendly person in a city, I know it would be received negatively. Their loss, as far as I am concerned.

    Most of the instances were demonstrating poor manners and do not come off in any way as charming. Much of it was offensive or nerve-wracking as hell. In particular, the gentleman that followed her for some five minutes was pretty worrying. I could easily see how it would be uncomfortable to be a woman in a public place.

    I have perhaps, at most, experienced some hooting and hollering once in a public place. I'm a guy, so it wasn't until someone pointed out what had happened that I understood what had gone on. Of course I wasn't offended and was flattered, but it was both so rare and non-threatening that I could afford to be flattered. Guys just don't have to deal with the issue and even if it does happen, we probably will react differently as a result.

    See the video below, it's a little more objective when dealing with street harassment.
    Uh, hello? Ms Williams' video is pretty much saying the same thing as the Hollaback video. Which is why I included that link in post # 147. http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...post1063926458

    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.
    Feminist have been doing this for 50+ years. The fact there's a so-called 'war on women' now is gravy for their cause.

    Has somebody stated that this video is implying that 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.

    You have obviously not had dozens of women chase you down the street whooping about how they want to ravage you... well I have. It is frightening.

    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.
    How many times do you think that a man excused himself in a crowd and let her walk first, do you think?

    How many would have held open a door for her during ten hours of walking into stores?

    I bet a video like that would show how great men's manners are, but that was not the goal of the video.

    Riiiight.
    I never said it was OK to harass anyone on the streets nor that complaining about it was wrong... just that men with proper upbringing tend to avoid such drivel.

    What I did say is that it is feminazi propaganda.

    No surprise they were behind this.
    They're losing the War on Women narrative, they had to try something to bring back the collective anger.

    Sometimes the fine line between sexual harassment and the admiring glance of a possible suitor is whether or not the woman finds the man attractive.
