    Nobody in a suite harassed her, but plenty of the others.

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

    There were a few instances that I consider harassment. The guy who says she should say thank you when someone calls her beautiful, the guy about 1:30 that pesters her and wants her number. The guy that follows her for 5 minutes is kind of creepy. Most of the rest was a little impolite, but didn't go far enough to be called harassment.

    Some of them are just ridiculous though. Do women really consider "How are you this morning" and "Have a nice evening" to be harassment?
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Most of the instances shown definitely count. Though... I'm not especially sure what it's supposed to prove, other than that the skeezy kinds of guys you tend to find hanging out on inner city street corners often have incredibly poor manners.*

    (*Even though the men who catch the most Hell over this will, of course, be Middle Class White boys at college who have never 'harassed' a woman in their lives. )

    Still lost.

    What has a group of rooms or a piece of music have to do with the video or women being harassed???

    Maybe you've had FAR too much coffee.....

    A good bit of that video looked like harassment to me, granted some was more mild than others. Still though, a sad statement if that is what a female has to experience just walking about New York. Perhaps it was how I was raised but nothing in that video is something I would do to a woman just walking by.

    Since the video is obviously heavily edited and intends to show examples of "harassment", I must conclude that while s few of the comments/actions are disturbing many are simply innocent compliments/comments. It appears that this story/video intends to portray any and all unsolicited comments/attention as "harassment".

    I watched that last night, and had some mixed emotions about it. Much of it was just sort of mindless annoying behavior, by men who probably had no clue they were being jackasses. If it were me, I wouldn't have put myself in the position of being treated that way, in a couple of different ways. 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.
