Honestly, I think that many men simply chose to ignore 'signals'.
Above all, men should always remember the rule they should have learned in Kindergarten. Keep your hands to yourself.
@catus felis

Why are you making this such a gendered issue when it is perfectly obvious that these types of situations occur to both males and females? It really comes down to the individuals, their Social IQ, how sexually aggressive they are, ect. ect. Women can be extremely sexually aggressive as well. It is a subset of the population for both males and females that behaves like this, painting with a broad brush is a rather dangerous course of action

Sexual harassment is when fat, ugly chicks get to make people believe a man actually touched them.

Because, while I have had a few lesbians indicate an attraction to me, I have only ever experienced inappropriate sexual behavior from men.

I try not to have opinions regarding subjects I know nothing about.
Thanks from Hollywood

“Sudden disappearance of a smile is difficult to miss”

Some people remain stubbornly, willfully ignorant of how clueless men in general are.

@catus felis

Have you ever considered that you have only experienced the world as a woman and thus are not as personally effected by the other side (i.e. some women, in some instances display questionable to inappropriate sexual behavior toward men)? Also, even living as a women, it should be very clear that this occurs on both sides of the aisle just as for me, a male, can understand the situations you are referring to.

You are attempting to establish a dynamic in which males (by-and-large) are chimpanzees while females (by-and-large) are angels. In reality, both males and females are highly flawed primates, the overwhelming majority of which are heterosexual and will be interested/attracted to the opposite sex. Men "hit on" women, and women "hit on" men. Now, this can sometimes express itself in a questionable to inappropriate manner, based on such factors that I indicated in my previous post (i.e. it really comes down to the individuals, their Social IQ, how sexually aggressive they are, ect. ect). However, to single out one side and suggest that this is where the problem lies is highly problematic at best.

One doesn't have to look any further than how male celebrities, rock stars, ect. are socially treated to see that women/girls are easily just as capable of hyper-aggressive sexual advances and/or gawking that men/boys are. Am I to believe that this has escaped your notice? Also, you could go to any High School basketball/football game across the country and find a group of girls/cheering section openly displaying a rather high level of sexual interest in a one or a small group of males/boys on the team (Side Note: I used to play sports and was also a Security Guard for several years in which I would often do High School sporting events).

Now, anecdotally (since you cited your personal life experiences in general), I am a University senior, now in my mid-twenties, and I can tell you the types of "sexual harassment" that you have largely been citing is entirely commonplace toward me, many of my male friends, and other males I know of (at my age, it is generally understood that most people are not paired off yet (in the long-term, that is) and this "hitting on" the opposite sex is much more commonplace as compared to the "full-grown Adult" population). That is, I have often had my as' spanked/grabbed, girls intentionally brush up against you, at bars/when I used to go to parties girls come up (uninvited) and start grinding/dancing on your genitalia, touch my chest/shoulders/arms/legs (near my genitals)/ect. (uninvited), maintain very strong, sexually charged eye contact, "cat called", ect. ect. ect. Now, many of these situations listed (although questionable and in some instances begin to "cross a line") for the most part I view them as quite benign (and in some cases flattering actually--depending on what happened) would only consider it "sexual harassment (or the like)" under a few conditions (or else there is a large problem with "Crying Wolf"):

A) The situation was so unpleasant and/or highly repetitive that the male felt the need to let them know that they have personal boundaries, and then they still continued (e.g. if a girl touches a males chest (uninvited), the male lets them know that goes beyond their comfort zone, and then the girl still does it again, and again, and again, ect. (and other similar examples based on some of the situations I listed above amongst others)

B ) Something way too forward happened (e.g. they grabbed a males genetalia with their hand (uninvited))


What are your thoughts on this?
