    In some areas.... women are even higher than 40%.

    I worked in a wealthy part of the city as a cop and I would have to say I more often had to arrest women than men for Domestic Violence assaults. These men were executives that knew what kind of career ruination could occur if they were to strike a women, plus with the added effect of the same theory that men are always going to be suspect, they often weren't the ones who called either.

    Had one dude have his arm sliced open from elbow to wrist by a broken wine class.... he didn't call.... didn't want her arrested.... and didn't enter the court room when the case came to trial/refused to testify.


    Some stereotypes are hard to break though........and OVERALL women are more often abused than men in REPORTED crimes. Most men don't report it.

    Many women ard emotionally violent and sexually aggressive. These people should be held responsible for their actions.

    Good post. Almost 40% of domestic abuse is caused by women... my ex-wife was like that too.

    .
    Like.

    Agreed... in my case my-ex attacked me with her Judo and I called the cops as she was doing it because it was in front of my kids and she wouldn't stop. They showed up and I did not want her arrested and they said they probably wouldn't anyway but if it had been reversed I would be in jail.

    Great point. The stats are not accurate and the percentage could be well higher if reporting was done all the time.

    This is all that needs to be stated... the below just justifies harassment.

    However, it's dishonest to ignore the historical and consistent precedence in different reactions to said situation between genders.

    Women by and large do not enjoy men touching and groping them.

    Men typically do not mind women touching them or groping them - unless the women is unattractive.

    That's a reality in gender differences and it immortalized in cultures across the globe so that women will typically not think twice about putting her breast in man's face or her ass or cooch for ****s and giggles and rarely receive backlash because, by and large, that man will enjoy the experience.

    I would go as far as saying that if there was ever any real push to stop women, especially beautiful women, from groping men most heterosexual men would fight against it.

    Do so...


    1 - You said it was a commercial but failed to mention what product or message they were trying to sell. New Zealand's headlines are splashed with sexual harassment charges against it's Prime Minister and other government officials. Could it have anything to do with that? Or did you expect everyone to judge a commercial they've never seen simply based on your dubious interpretation of it?
    2 - Why did the woman, Denise make her hair look like Dennis, the male trainer and then act like a man coming onto a woman? Is there something you're not telling us?
    3 - I looked but couldn't find anything. But in my search I did see that New Zealand is having a sexual harassment scandal involving their prime minister and a few other high up officials. So the issue is probably a hot topic there right now.
    1 - I did. Post #24

    2 - Missed it but just addressed it...

    3 - Not even addressed to me... Chomsky. Post #43
    3 - The issue is not a hot topic here in the slightest, in fact.
