    There are various reasons that these things happen. Sometimes a black person will be followed in a store but that's not necessarily because they're black. It could just as easily be because they acted in a way to arouse suspicion. The same applies to women in public. Perhaps a particular mannerism elicits a certain response from various people. Perhaps she has a look ion her face like she's having a rough day and someone comments in a way they believe to be friendly. If she interprets that to be harassment then that's her problem, not theirs.

    Yes, the implication was the video makes men look bad. No, it just makes men who do this look bad.

    ...around 40% of domestic violence is committed by women.
    That is horrible and certainly worthy of a thread. But it isn't what this thread is about.

    Yes, most of that is harassment, that most women just get used too. It's annoying and can be scary, because you never know who is going to get really angry and may attack you.

    Let's assume the average woman walks for 1 hour per day. Utilizing math that woman is likely to be forced to endure 12 seconds of harassment each day.
    No, that doesn't mean that. For example, the guy walked next to her for 5 min. That wasn't fully shown in the video. As mentioned earlier, there were 100 episodes over 10 hours.

    I think that the video is not trying to make men look bad, just normal non-offensive comments or advances as looking bad.

    If most women have to face it enough to get used to it... but are scared because you never know who is going to get really angry and may attack you, then are you saying that most women have been attacked?

    If they have not been attacked then what are they fearing? If that girl walked around and was "harassed" by hundreds of men over ten hours and was never even close to physically threatened, much less attacked, doesn't that indicate that most of these women's fears are unfounded?

    "Right"? So you are saying that just because a guy looks a woman's way that means he is fantasizing about ****ing her? What delusional world do you live in?
