Double Standard: What would happen if the roles were reversed?

Double Standard: What would happen if the roles were reversed?

Please, watch the short videos below as a basis to discuss from:

(B ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLu9TzNdVBE

Thoughts?

@goober

Perhaps I should have specified more clearly:

Please, do not comment unless you watch one or both videos.
Thanks from Jimmyb and Jimgorn

It's about flirting.
It can be an issue for some people - for others not so much.
I think the way some women hit on men would be considered sexual harassment if it were the male doing the hitting upon the female.
I do know that it's kind of outrageous the number of women who have openly flirted and occasionally flat out propositioned me right in front of my (known-to-them) husband. I find it awkward, not sexy, not fun - and he gets really pissed at them for negating him.
Flirting CAN be fun and innocent and sexy all at once.
Or it can be tacky and crude and kinda sleazy. Depends on the person, their own charm and charisma, and whether or not they can pick up on the immediate 'not interested' signals and cool it. Flattery is one thing - boorishness is not.

In other words, the videos are just more snowflake whining ?

@Lyzza

It is really a shame people allow you to talk to them like this IRL--they have done a tremendous disservice to both you and themselves.
