    Come on, tres. Admit it. You carry around that ball and chain, which a Republican man forced you to take.

    I didn't want to give our Liberals false hope before election day Lizzie. If I admit how heavy the chain around my ankle is (thanks of course to all those Conservatives who have declared war on me), they'll think I'm voting for my saviors and heroes tomorrow who will liberate me from the chains that bind me!

    Greetings, tres borrachos.

    I spent most of my working years in a Fortune 500 manufacturing company. I don't know if many liberals tend to gravitate towards toward that environment, but every boss I had was definitely a conservative, and they all helped me to get promotions along the way. I worked hard to earn those, too. I don't know where the "War on Women" is taking place, but my company employed over 100,000 men and women worldwide, and I never heard any complaints.

    Government itself seems to be the place where the problems are, from what I've been reading, so maybe they should look a mirror and correct them! When even female Senators complain about harassment from male colleagues, that is shocking! Of course, most of them are attorneys so you can't really expect them to know the law, can you? sarcasm intended! Sheesh! :

Wariness or preparedness is reasonable though... perhaps.




    The argument that I was presented with by some of the women on this site is that they are feeling fear when walking around due to being harassed by men so many times. The examples are like the one in the video... walking past a man sitting there asking how she is doing. That is not harassment nor a reason to feel fear. The next step brought to me was that rape is such a concern that 1 in 6 women are raped. I pointed out that those stats are misleading as most women are raped by somebody that they know in a relationship (husband, boyfriend, guy at a party) and NOT by some guy you walk past in broad daylight.

    You and I agree for the most part but I think you are taking my comments out of context because I was responding to specific points.
    Are you forgetting that two of the men followed her around for several minutes? Don't you think that's something more than merely "sitting there asking how she is doing"?

    I agreed that that was harassment and that it was creepy... two guys for a few minutes, yes, that crap happens. Thousands of men over ten hours? Stupid.

    Even if you say that only those two guys were creepy (which I disagree with) - that was two guys in the same day. And it happens every day, over and over and over. That kind of junk.

    We need to get men as well as women to say "this isn't acceptable". We need to change the culture. It's a long struggle, but it needs to happen (in my opinion). Women shouldn't have to face this.

    Gotta wonder how many comments would be welcome from a stranger she considered "hot".
