shastacola: God, the male butthurt comments in this thread are really pathetic. I look forward to the day when your 14 year old daughter get the shiat scared out of her by some 30 year old stranger who thinks it's his right to comment on her ass. Make sure she understands that she shouldn't dress so slutty or be so attractive.Tell her to get used to it,she's got many years of strangers with a bizarre sense of entitlement judging her attire and figure.


Really? That would make you happy?

Why is it that men are never allowed to defend themselves or express their own opinions based on their experiences?

For what it's worth, my daughter has FASD; I'm terrified of the day when men start to notice her. You should be happy about that, I guess.

Bored Horde: omeganuepsilon: That level of paranoia is not normal. That is what she is describing, there's a world of difference between due vigilance and the paranoia of a simpleton. Just maybe, it's a case of the victim gravitating towards them.(AW as people above documented).

That kind of cat-calling is, by and large, a regional thing, the only attainable solution is to move to someplace that activities like that aren't common. I get a kick out of at the bottom of the article it says she loves Chicago. That's an obvious lie if half the populace is like that.

Who needs an app to see what they're doing wrong? It's not that society at large does not think it's wrong, it's that the perpetrators of such behavior DO NOT CARE.

Men's hair gets pointed out well enough, The Donald for a great example, or Nicholas Cage's. So *drumroll* that argument is irrelevant.

Two examples of celebrities.

In the business world, if you're a man, as long as your hair is short and under control, everyone ignores it. It's a check box item. Women's hair gets graded. Men's clothing is the same - it's pass/fail, either the suit is clean, pressed, and fits or it's bad. Women's clothing gets graded for appearance, fashion, and riding the thin line between dowdy and slutty.

If you don't understand this then you're not ready to participate in a discussion about the matter - go read some farking books.


Men are graded on their height. Women can control all of the above. Men can not control their height.

I don't know why women keep trying to tell men what it's like, because men are never going to get it. Ever. No matter what a woman says about this, no matter how many analogies she makes, no matter how she says it, men will respond with... pretty much everything in this thread. They will continue to act like untrained dogs around women they want to fark and shiat all over women they deem too old or too ugly to fark.

I was riding my bike up a hill the other day, and a carful of women paced right up next to me...they were all "Oooh...lookit dat!"

Finally, one yelled "nice ass!" Then they sped away screaming in laughter.

Still not sure if they were serious...but sure made my day. I gained about 5 mph the rest of the ride.

Everywhere I go, people hassle me for my massive dong. Why, just the other day I was in Target, idly browsing the aisles, when an 8 yr old girl grabbed her mom's hand and went "Mommy, look at that man's peeeeeeeeennnnnniiiiiisssss." Mommy's face got embarrased, and I watched her eyes track down to my crotch where they got very wide. "Oh my" she said. Still staring at my crotch she said "that's some equipment you got there." Her daughter put in "Mommy, his balls are huge too".

I cannot tell you how angry this makes me, as it happens everywhere I go. Women point and whisper to each other. They'll come up and ask me "is that thing real?" They'll stare obviously at my crotch when I trying to complete a simple farking transaction with them. Some of them get bold, and ask if they can touch it, and some just reach out and grab it. They catcall all the time.

My friends have told me that if I want to stop being harassed and looked at, I should stop wearing skintight pants and my bulge enhancing underwear, and I should not go out of house wearing nothing but leggings.

But I maintain that it is the fault of society. I have a right to wear whatever I want, deem comfortable or fashionable, and I take it as a woman's responsibility to control herself and not stare at my junk. I didn't give you permission to look or comment, so you don't have that right, ladies.

no, the suggestion is that women have to deal with that shiat every DAY and men might deal with it a couple times a year.

I'm not suggesting what you said isn't true, but how do you know that? I mean really know that?

I have no idea what it's like to be a woman; why do women always seem to "know" how wonderful it is to be a man?

Why are people so continually surprised by research that was done decades ago that has been a media staple since?

If you don't want attention, wear sweatpants without "juicy" printed on the back. Or mom jeans. I have years of experience in looking unattractive.

I wish this were a valid strategy, but creepers gon' creep regardless of clothing. I cannot tell you how many times I have gone out looking like absolute death in sweatpants, sweatshirt, hair in a pony tail, no makeup, visibly ill etc. and have been harassed by dbags, and I can't think of a single female friend who hasn't also experienced this. It's definitely befuddling because common sense would dictate that looking as if you just rolled out of bed with the plague would deter creeps but no, for some reason it doesn't.

The problem is perpetuated by women.

This is a case of people outside of the bell curve realizing they were born on the wrong planet. It's like an atheist wondering why religious people are religious.


Over and over again, bad behavior is being excused away, this time its women's fault for the fashion industry, because only the right shade of toenail polish can prevent harassment.

TiiiMMMaHHH: someonelse: letrole: Sexual harrassment is the wrong man noticing your tits.

You can't troll a thread where the most blatantly ignorant opinions are already being expressed in earnest, dude. You can't make a sh*thouse smell worse.

I'm in a commited relationship with a woman 8 years older than me. He's not trolling, it's true. She's old enough that she fears not being attractive on a regular basis. She's real enough that she'll flat out admit that she doesn't want gross dudes oggling her. If an attractive man checks her out or compliments her, it makes her feel great because it means (on a genetic level at least) that she's viable. Basic programming at it's finest.


His/her name is The Troll, and he is always and forever trolling. You know this, or ought to.

Nothing in your second paragraph is particularly relevant. Your girlfriend likes being complimented, therefore what? What basic logic are you using?

The "just wait 20 years from now when no one will look at you" comments here seem to be made with a fair amount of indignance and hurt feelings. I get the impression that anyone who would say that has been the man catcalling some woman on the street and doesn't like that anyone would view this behavior negatively, and/or has felt pretty burned in the past/present when any of their attentions (regardless of politeness level) have been rebuffed because they weren't attractive enough to the other person.

Just a thought.

Which has what to do with strangers making sexually suggestive comments to women? Is your argument that some women can be mean to each other so women deserve to have their vaginas,asses,legs,breasts,etc. publicly and loudly judged?

Do you think that this doesn't happen to men? When I was younger, I had my ass groped (without my consent) a number of times. I imagine that men who are more attractive then me have experienced this even more.

Groping a woman carries the implicit threat of rape in a way that a woman groping a man doesn't. However uncomfortable you felt being groped, remember that women are taught that it's their fault they got groped, that all men are groping raping monsters and it's the woman's fault if they let them get close.

For you, it was the simple act of violation of your body. For women, it's that AND a reminder that their body's positive assets belong to society.

While I agree with you completely you are assuming it was a woman who groped him. However the point still stands that far more women get raped then men and it is a much bigger threat getting your ass grabbed.

The thing is every single woman I know has had to deal with the potential for sexual harassment as an ongoing part of her daily life. And even though I have reached the supposedly "invisible" age I still have to deal with that shiat. And I assure you I am thoroughly average in appearance. OTOH my hubby who is very tall and very handsome has never ever been sexually harassed.

It's not being explained away. It's a fact of culture that isn't going to change no matter how much you biatch about it. Women compete with each other on the basis of sexual attraction, and enjoy doing it. A loud few are offended by that same behavior, but even in the 60s and 70s when this conversation was at its peak, women were still competing with clothing and make-up.

Religionists drive me up a wall. They're always coming to my door and telling me what an asshole I am for not being them. They infiltrate schools, politics, and anywhere else they can slime through the cracks.

It's the way the world is. You're not going to change it, any more than I'm going to change the minds of people who think they're going to live forever in the clouds. The best you're going to be able to do is to find and hang out with people who share your own values.

There are two options here:

Women and men together deem that not all men are aholes, and not all women are attention grabbing whores, and that there is some truth in the complaints on both sides

OR

We get really angry and demonize everyone on the other side.

It depends on whether someone is bragging, or sending mixed signals. If someone is complaining about attention, while seeking attention (especially when they use the attention to climb higher), then no, no one should take them seriously.

But yes, unwanted attention sucks ass, because of the power plays you mentioned in your earlier posts. The fear is about the fifth panel in weltallica's comic, the 'Fk you, then!' that follows rejection, the implicit 'I'll make you pay for rejecting me'. Right? (There's also not a little 'men being men instead of women; if men found ways to do all that looking good crap like women want it done, there'd be less fear and more acceptance -- see also Billy Bathsalt's construction story.)

She seems to think she is more attractive than she really is, I can tell she used to be overweight and now is a cute chubby, but those complexes that develop during the fat years tend to run deep through an ex fatties life.  So while they want to be the cheerleader, they become pseudo hipsters and even worse, bloggers.   And no man is then good looking enough for them, and they hate the really pretty girls.

Here are some bits from her other ramblings, cause you know they never seen a white chick in India, and there are no hot women in Spain which forces Spaniards to hit on sandal wearing hostel dwellers.

" Sometimes, I go to countries where the presence of a wandering single white woman is an attraction in and of itself. There are probably at least a hundred Indians with surreptitious cell phone pictures of me; apparently I was just that photogenic ."


"He approached me, and said something in Catalan I didn't understand. I responded in Spanish, telling him to have a good night, and waving him away. For a block, he hovered just a few feet over my shoulder. He approached again, lightly grabbing my elbow. Though the precise language of his proposition was lost on me, the gist was clear: American girls all have a price, what was mine? "

someonelse: TiiiMMMaHHH: someonelse: letrole: Sexual harrassment is the wrong man noticing your tits.

You can't troll a thread where the most blatantly ignorant opinions are already being expressed in earnest, dude. You can't make a sh*thouse smell worse.

I'm in a commited relationship with a woman 8 years older than me. He's not trolling, it's true. She's old enough that she fears not being attractive on a regular basis. She's real enough that she'll flat out admit that she doesn't want gross dudes oggling her. If an attractive man checks her out or compliments her, it makes her feel great because it means (on a genetic level at least) that she's viable. Basic programming at it's finest.

His/her name is The Troll, and he is always and forever trolling. You know this, or ought to.

Nothing in your second paragraph is particularly relevant. Your girlfriend likes being complimented, therefore what? What basic logic are you using?


That an HONEST woman will tell you: When ugly guys hit on me, I wince. When cute guys hit on me, I think for a second "I'd hit it. He has good genes". WOMEN LIE ABOUT THIS FACTOR ALL THE TIME.

Difference usually being; a mature woman values her partner more than her orgasms.

Head_Shot: quickdraw: PanicMan: I didn't know Saturday morning was "sexist asshole" time here. Good to know.

Yeah Im gonna mark it on my calendar from now on.

Bored Horde: WhippingBoy: DO NOT WANT Poster Girl: DrPainMD: Don't worry DNWPG. If your real-life personality is anything like your Fark personality, they'll leave you alone as soon as they get to know you.

Yea, because the last guy who groped my ass in a crowded subway car wanted to know what I thought of the dual Higgs discovery, you moron.

Do you think that this doesn't happen to men? When I was younger, I had my ass groped (without my consent) a number of times. I imagine that men who are more attractive then me have experienced this even more.

Groping a woman carries the implicit threat of rape in a way that a woman groping a man doesn't. However uncomfortable you felt being groped, remember that women are taught that it's their fault they got groped, that all men are groping raping monsters and it's the woman's fault if they let them get close.

For you, it was the simple act of violation of your body. For women, it's that AND a reminder that their body's positive assets belong to society.

While I agree with you completely you are assuming it was a woman who groped him. However the point still stands that far more women get raped then men and it is a much bigger threat getting your ass grabbed.

The thing is every single woman I know has had to deal with the potential for sexual harassment as an ongoing part of her daily life. And even though I have reached the supposedly "invisible" age I still have to deal with that shiat. And I assure you I am thoroughly average in appearance. OTOH my hubby who is very tall and very handsome has never ever been sexually harassed.

Are you sure he'd tell you if he was?


Why wouldnt he? Were both adults. *shrug*

WhippingBoy: SnarfVader: WhippingBoy: Smock Pot: I don't know why women keep trying to tell men what it's like, because men are never going to get it. Ever. No matter what a woman says about this, no matter how many analogies she makes, no matter how she says it, men will respond with... pretty much everything in this thread. They will continue to act like untrained dogs around women they want to fark and shiat all over women they deem too old or too ugly to fark.

Yep, this is true.

No, it's bullshiat. Not all men are like that, especially not the ones like me who have daughters they want to see succeed. Quit lumping us all together.

You missed the point. Of course not all men are like that. But the ones that are certainly don't care about what a woman experiences, so it's somewhat futile to keep trying to explain it to them.


I know...right?!  Women...just shut up and let it happen.  Men will never learn, so don't even try.  WhippingBoy has spoken.

Howie Spankowitz: Wow.  Been a Farker for a long time.  Seldom see such near universal mouth-breathing, male douchebaggery so early and often in a thread.  TFA's author was completely reasonable and 90% of the comments from you assclowns is "hurrr get me a sammich durr be glad dudes are even looking at you hurrr she needs to get laid."

So glad I don't have a daughter.


It's the main page, it's the weekend, and it's gender-related. That's like a perfect storm of moronic HERP and misogynist DERP.

quickdraw: WhippingBoy: I'm defending "men" in general.

Why?


Why? I dunno... because there just might be some men out there who are decent human beings?
