    Incorrect. Sorry, I won't go down your tangent. Bringing in subjective terms like "degrading" is subjective and leads to all sorts of idiotic debate that is baseless. It is degrading that men are almost universally treated like clowns in commercials about household things and the mom is the stable common sense one too... this debate is about sexual harassment, not some beautiful woman standing in a bikini while guys chug beer.

    Domestic violence has a correlation with, but is not the same thing as, sexual harassment. I was under the impression that this thread was about sexual harassment.

    I don't believe that this needs to be an either-or-issue. Domestic violence, both by men and by women, is a serious and underrated problem in our society. And on that issue too, you would probably be surprised at what most feminists have to say about it.

    I found your response a little too sarcastic. Sorry if my response was off-putting. It bugged me.

    I was just debating your "far far more" comment...

    two out of five sexual harassment victims in the UK were male

    For humour? Men creeping on a woman, shoving her head into his ass? That kind of stuff?

    I've never seen that as far as I can recall. Men being predators and such... a ton.

    Exactly what I was thinking, although I'd have to actually watch a clip of the commercial to form an opinion. It's just so... overblown and Saturday Night Live, lol!

    Gay men raped by heterosexual men, most likely.

    Re: Sexist Double Standard

    Regardless of which genders are involved, sexual harassment is clearly wrong, and some double standards based on gender stereotypes get in the way of that premise. The commercial however, sounds more like light humor than anything else.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    So - four pages of discussion in, has anyone found the commercial on YouTube so we can see for ourselves?

    Again, those innate differences. I feel that there aren't many women, that if I had to defend myself against, I wouldn't be able to. Now the reverse is probably not true.
