    It's not her. It's the men.
    Yes, it's men, acting like men act. It's just an outward expression of the same things that men AND women think every day, but they don't filter it through manners and cultural restrictions. If I see a man who looks damn good in his Wranglers and cowboy boots around here, I think to myself, "damn, what a fine ass", but I don't say it. It's not good manners, nor is it socially acceptable in my circle of friends and acquaintances.

    Wide gulf between thought and action and no this is not men acting like men. These are men acting like boys who haven't learned how to be men yet.

    They are acting like men of a lower cultural caliber act. You and I may not identify with it, but it's certainly nothing unusual.

    This woman looks fairly attractive.

    That last is further confirmation that we are sliding down that slippery slope toward a society I no longer recognize.

    Agreed.
    I thought the creepiest part was the guy walking alongside her for 5 minutes.
    Just a weird get-out-of-my-space moment.

    Yes, we are, but it's nothing new. That is why I am careful about how I dress, and the image that I put across. Plenty of people in our society don't have the same social filters that they once did. I see it as my responsibility not to give someone cause to act like that.

    It definitely was, and if it had been me, I would have stopped abruptly, looked him directly in the eyes, and asked him what he wanted. That is another reason that I know this video was just a set-up. She didn't portray responses that looked real to me. The guys were young men, for the most part. They weren't older, responsible-looking men who had regular jobs, apparently.
