    I grew up in a city where most of this stuff is normal. I don't necessarily see all of it as "harassment" - a lot of it is merely being impolite. You want to see out in the open sexual harassment? Go to Mexico City wearing a skirt.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    No, because one in six women will be raped in her lifetime; that is a rather scary number.

    It's not this big crippling thing, but it is a valid fear and can be upsetting. Some guys just won't take no for an answer and will continue to harass someone well after they have been told to leave that person alone. Just because this woman wasn't assaulted during her one day of walking around, doesn't mean that it isn't something we all have to worry about on some level.

    Not to diminish rape because it is horrible, but that stat, even if true, is misleading and a Straw Man. Many to most rapes happen in a marriage, a relationship, with a family member or close friend and NOT from some stranger making comments as you walk by.

    This started with my post about being creeped out when guys stare at me. Not glance my way, but stare for minutes at a time. It's creepy, and honestly not hard to tell what they're thinking about...

    Or hi, or how are you doing, or what is your name or any number of other comments. It might not be an exercise in manners or good social skills, but it is not harassment.

    Are you saying that men can't be educated and have a good career?
