So uninvited advances IMO do not constitute harassment.
    So if a guy stuck his junk in your face you wouldnt feel harassed?

    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?

    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.

    I can't help but wonder what kind of message Bodi is giving his daughters by blaming women for sexual harassment: "Look girls, women do it, too so never mind when men sexually harass you making your job uncomfortable.....just enjoy it or it will look like you have double standards."

    It's harassment either way, technically.

    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.

    Re: Sexist Double Standard

    I have some friends that have a very precocious daughter and when she was about nine years old they brought her to Christmas party. About mid way through the party she started going around grabbing all the adult males by the balls...rendering them utterly speechless and unsure how to react. Needless to say, everyone was shocked, including her parents. I think that's about the only time I ever really saw sexual harassment by a female ...or at least that I remember.

    What an incredibly sexist rant.

    I believe it. We've seen worse examples, honestly. That incident on The View where women were laughing at a guy who got seriously mangled by his wife comes to mind.

    That is simply not true. I know many men who have felt sexually used, or had unwanted advances -- and no, not just from "unattractive" women. They often have an even harder time saying no than women do -- despite the general lack of physical risk, they do experience a very real social one.

    It happens a lot more than I think people realize. I actually struggle to think of any men I know well who don't have an experience that upset them.

    The outcome of those situations is variable. As I said in my previous post, men are reduced to their conquests and at risk of social stigma if they refuse. But I have seen men express -- both in my personal life and online -- feeling as though they're being used sexually quite often.

    And given that the early reports on the Millennials shows that men are more likely to want a relationship than women, and that women are driving the hook-up market, we shouldn't actually be surprised by that.

    It's hard for you to imagine because we're taught to believe that men simply don't have any feelings when it comes to touch and sex. And that is so very deeply untrue.

    The sexes tend to reduce each other to the least evolved and then reinforce it internally. If women are made to feel shame based upon body-image, men are made to feel shame based upon behavior. Anything less than Barbie for one and G.I. Joe for the other, and the the principle criticism usually doesn't come from the opposite gender, but one's own.

    Remember the Diet Coke (or Coke?) commercials that had the women working in an office ogling the guy?
