So why do women date these a$$holes?  You whine and biatch that you don't want to be treated like this, then you ignore the guys that treat you properly and date the pond scum.  Until you've resolved that, STFU.

DO NOT WANT Poster Girl: 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.


So what DO you think of it?

One Bad Apple: Wow. There's a lot of biatches in here that must have had an especially long walk of shame this morning.


So, what age were you when your mom told you to always hold your keys out under your knuckles in case you need to fight someone, and that you should take self-defense classes together as mother-daughter bonding time? I was about twelve. Most girls are around that age. And no, my mom's not paranoid. Part of 'the talk' is when you share your near-rape experience with your daughter and explain how you got away, because that happens to every woman.

Because shiatstains like you call anyone who brings up a harassment charge a whiny biatch who needs to get laid. I'm sure you don't know what 'obstruction of justice' means, but you and your ilk are walking examples of it.

DeathCipris: OK, I am throwing in my two cents on this.
Yes, the guys FTA are assholes. They are douchebags that hoot and holler at any female that accidentally walks near them. This shiat happens.
HOWEVER
The woman in the article comes off quite feminazi to me when she starts her little rant about men and why can't men this. They are douchebags...yes, there are a lot of them. There are also aspects of life these douchebags play a role in too. Please see shiathead that cuts you off in traffic to make a turn immediately or the dumbass that wants to fight with the cashier at "t3h costco" over the price of a satchel of oranges. They may not be hooting and hollering at women, but they are still being asswipes.


Point being, there are assholes everywhere. This is just another example. Blaming all of "man" because there are some shiatheads yelling things at you is ignorant.

murderguy: stiletto_the_wise: WordyGrrl: It doesn't have to be a genuine threat. It just needs to be perceived by the victim as a threat.

Huh? So a threat is a threat. And if it's not a threat, but someone thinks it's a threat--it's a threat?

I'm sure someone, somewhere, thinks my green baseball cap is threatening. This apparently makes me a threatening threat.


Well, I do admit, that I find people who evidence idiocy, in the way you have, threatening, and if the green hat fits... Who knows? The kind of person who could post your comment might try soaking their hair in gasoline to loosen up the chunk of gum that got stuck in it.

Seriously. You come off as a moron. Try to think about things before you post.

Pincy: clowncar on fire: Pincy: clowncar on fire: ThrobblefootSpectre: Pincy: Well, you were working in a sports bar that I'm guessing probably catered to men, so I'm not exactly surprised you'd get hit on a lot. Now if you are getting the same thing from complete strangers while walking down the street at night that might be a little different.

And is it okay for a guy on the street to get angry (or even start shoving) over a suggestive comment from another guy?

Only if you were trying to find the proper equivalency which- in this case-- would be a female being subject to unwanted comments out on the street by other females.

I don't think guys tend to get as bunched up about unsolicited comments from females as females seem to.

Ya, probably not, since very rarely is a woman going to rape a guy. It's easy for guys to laugh it off or take it as a compliment when the thought of being raped never crosses their mind.

And you actually believe that all unsolicited comments end in rapey rape?

Strawman? Did I say that? Reread what I said. Men never think that there is a possibility of being raped by a woman. For women, it is a possibility. Doesn't mean it is going to happen, but it is a possibility. Depending on the circumstances, that possibility may be very small or much greater. The point is that men don't have to live with that constant fear and thus how we view "attention" from women is different from how women view "attention" from men.

The sooner we men can admit that the better.


You know... if you were to actually grow a pair, you'd stop trying to act like you had your estrogen shot today.

The reality is that we are all vulnerable to attack. So don't bother raising the "sex" card. And since your posting had nothing to do with the subject posting, I give you a -1.

As to the author of the subject, I sincerely that happened to anyone in the course of one week. Likely just a blog ho'ing writer in need of a fix.

EmmaLou: I really wish men could have that feeling that women do when we're walking alone or in a group with 2 or 3 girls and knowing that at any moment you could be attacked. The feeling of being so vulnerable is lost on men. However, every single one if their mothers, gfs, sisters, daughters, etc...have felt this on a regular basis. It's not a matter of age or attractiveness.


You think that as a 6'1" 175lb man I have NEVER felt scared for my safety walking down the street? Or in a dark parking garage? Holy hell, we're all fragile bags of skin just waiting to bleed out.

Yes it's worse for women, but to imply that men have no idea what it is to feel fear is just plain inaccurate.

Jesus. If the shoe doesn't fit, don't put it on. She references only people making sexually harassing comments and behavior. If you don't do those things, she is not referring to you. I shouldn't have to explain this to you, but for some strange reason the same issue comes up every time a woman complains about street harassment. I'd really like to hear your explanation for why people like you always get feel threatened or attacked. Why is it, do you think?

That's part of the problem. Vibes mean something. That doesn't mean not being aware. However, confidence can be a shield all its own. If you think of yourself as a victim, then you will be treated as a victim. If you look to be victimized, you will find yourself victimized.

You know how black people (allegedly) have a chip on their shoulder around whites? because blacks are expecting to be victimized. Well................................ women need to remove the hobbles around their ankles and wrists when they are around men, hobbles which exist because women are expecting to be victimized by men.

If women are socially conditioned to think of themselves as victims, and socially rewarded for thinking of themselves as victims, well....... the cycle will continue.

Cause women are sort of hardwired to go for aggressive, "alpha" types to kill bears and protect their babies. Genetics is goofy sh*t. Here's a kicker. Researchers have discovered that women can detect subtle aspects of a man's scent that give them a clue as to their immune system's robustness, AND.. they are wired to be attracted to men who smell like dad, but with an immune system come up. Women are probably why we didn't lose the war against viruses. So, yeah, they ARE looking for daddy, but not how you think. I know I'm attracted by certain facial features in a woman without thinking about it. It's interesting. Then again, the first thing I look at when I meet a woman is her eyes, so I oughta turn in my man card, I guess.

Bored Horde: Frederick: So being really attractive is a two sided coin, eh?  Who woulda thought.

Of course on the other side of the coin is; greater salaries,  undeserved promotions, more lenient sentences, ugh, lets stop the list there.....

I wonder why your article didnt mention how your husband deals with your attractiveness?

Good looking men get more money and raise through the ranks faster. Good looking women get sidelined into pretty-face positions.

Women have to be average to slightly-above-average looking, thin but not too thin, fashionable without being slutty or dowdy, done up without going too far - women live on a razor's edge that doesn't exist for men. Everything a woman does is open for judgement, in a way that isn't true for men. Go farking talk to some women. Ask them how stressful buying a skirt is - is it fashionable or slutty to have a hemline 2 inches above their knees? What if they're self-conscious about their knees and want to wear a below-the-knees skirt - will people subconsciously regard them as too conservative and pass them over for big projects or management positions?

Talk to women. Check your assumptions, and listen with an open mind. Remember that all the problems they list - obsessing over being taken seriously, obsessing over avoiding or feeling guilty about inviting unwanted attention, obsessing over their appearance - these are all on top of the normal life stresses. Being a woman doesn't let you off the hook from your health, paying the bills, keeping your car in good working order, and all the other annoyances of life.

If you're not interested in doing this then just recognize that you don't have the perspective and knowledge to empathize with being a woman. You should just consider that many attractive women who age feel relief (and guilt over that relief) when they become "invisible" and are no longer subject to all that extra special attention. Some also feel crushed because most of their male friends were just in it to b ...


Good advice there, Bub. I'm sure women are not AT ALL BIASED as to how bad it is to be them. I'm sure they have this magical ability to see what it's like on both sides and explain it in a completely accurate manner how they'd give up all the benefits of their looks if it meant not being treated like an object. Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure they would.

Women are not nearly the victims of violence as often as men are. Not even close. A woman (here in the US) being attacked is a "Man Bites Dog" story.

gilgigamesh: t may be regional. I live in the South. There's a certain gentility factor: women who work in my office have the door held open for them, men wait for them to exit the elevator before exiting themselves, that sort of thing


When I was about 22 or so I held the door open for a woman with a large armful of binders (10 inch stack). I walked on and she called out demanding that I stop. I was chewed as she explained that she had 'two perfectly good working arms' and started chewing me out in the hallway in front of everyone as she busily declared I was a sexist pig.

I was working for very well known company in their headquarters building, my office happened to be right near human resources. Turned out she worked in human resources and she decided to go full bore feminazi on me.

I was formally written up for sexual harassment, I was forced to go to sensitivity training where I was taught that as a white male that I am inherently evil. I was told that if there was ever another incident I would be fired. My career in that corporation was ruined, all for a woman that I never talked to, touched, or even gawked at. Literally all I did, all I was accused of doing, was holding the door open for her.

For years after that I refused to hold the door open for anyone woman at work, letting it shut behind me without care. Now I know better, but when your young your easy prey for someone like that.

Pincy: douchebag/hater: 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.

You, kind woman, are missing the point and that point is this:

SOME men are jerks, SOME MEN. NOT 'most men'. NOT a 'majority of men. NOT EVEN a substantial minority of men.

You and the writer need to get a grip. The small coterie of guys that are pigs in public is a fact of life and for YOU to get all butthurt over a tiny percentage of men with poor social skills shows that you've learned nothing about life in however many years you've been around.

As for dragging a hypothetical daughter into the discuss is a move worthy of every feminist and liberal hack around right up to Barack Obama.

'It's for the children'. What bull shiat.

If YOU aren't raising your daughter to be alert and aware and able to defend herself, if need be, makes YOU a shiatty mom.

Look at the world the way it is, NOT the way you wish/want it to be.

Farking allah, women (and men) like you are boring and self-centered.

And you are missing the point that sexual harassment and especially rape happens a ton more to women than it does to men.

That immune system claim is a crock of shiat. I've read the studies suggesting it as well (actually more towards being attracted to someone with a DIFFERENT immune system than theirs), but it's bunk. I'd be prying them off with a stick if they were at all attracted to immune system. Maybe if EVERYTHING else were the exact same (looks, wealth, power) they'd pick the guy with a better immune system, but that's about the extent of it. It's not like you can definitively quantify immune systems anyway, so I'm not sure how they actually thought they were able to do that in the studies anyway.

When I had a life, pre-college, I used to go hiking. When I was in my young teens, it was awesome, too; I was at one with nature, communing with the desert, etc..

One day, when I was about fourteen or so, I was on my way to one of my hiking spots, barely out of my neighborhood, when this car comes screaming up behind me, the guys in it shout out an obscenity, and they vanish.

I'm sure I was giving off vibes of a victim right about then, of course. And I'm totally comfortable being the 'protected, not protector'. Just social conditioning.

Imagine a fat, mustachioed, smells-like-cigarettes-and-Doritos, sweaty 20 year old woman attempting to grope you, where there's no escape, and she is definitely stronger than you.

Still the stuff of fantasies?


At 15? Sure! Most 15 year old boys are walking ball of hormones and having a willing partner instead of my hand would have been a welcome change. Would I want her as my girlfriend, no..... but as quickie? Why not.

I was formally written up for sexual harassment, I was forced to go to sensitivity training where I was taught that as a white male that I am inherently evil. I was told that if there was ever another incident I would be fired. My career in that corporation was ruined, all for a woman that I never talked to, touched, or even gawked at. Literally all I did, all I was accused of doing, was holding the door open for her.

For years after that I refused to hold the door open for anyone woman at work, letting it shut behind me without care. Now I know better, but when your young your easy prey for someone like that.


You should have filed a lawsuit. Your career there was ruined anyway. As a man, being accused by a woman makes you guilty. At least you could force her to try to prove your intent in front of a judge (and hope it's a male judge).

halB: Pincy: douchebag/hater: 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.

You, kind woman, are missing the point and that point is this:

SOME men are jerks, SOME MEN. NOT 'most men'. NOT a 'majority of men. NOT EVEN a substantial minority of men.

You and the writer need to get a grip. The small coterie of guys that are pigs in public is a fact of life and for YOU to get all butthurt over a tiny percentage of men with poor social skills shows that you've learned nothing about life in however many years you've been around.

As for dragging a hypothetical daughter into the discuss is a move worthy of every feminist and liberal hack around right up to Barack Obama.

'It's for the children'. What bull shiat.

If YOU aren't raising your daughter to be alert and aware and able to defend herself, if need be, makes YOU a shiatty mom.

Look at the world the way it is, NOT the way you wish/want it to be.

Farking allah, women (and men) like you are boring and self-centered.

And you are missing the point that sexual harassment and especially rape happens a ton more to women than it does to men.

The majority of rape in America is man on man.


So you as a man (I'm assuming you are a man from your user name) are always thinking in the back of your mind wherever you go that you could be raped and you need to be aware of any men in your environment? And all of your male friends feel the same way too? And your father had a talk with you when you were a young kid warning you about the possibility that you might be raped by a man someday and how you can protect yourself?

Arthur Jumbles: Bedstead Polisher: Arthur Jumbles: Most 15 year old boys would be very happy to be grouped by a 20-something waitress or nurse in a hospital elevator. As a result I think it's hard for some men to understand why a woman wouldn't.

Imagine a fat, mustachioed, smells-like-cigarettes-and-Doritos, sweaty 20 year old woman attempting to grope you, where there's no escape, and she is definitely stronger than you.

Still the stuff of fantasies?

At 15? Sure! Most 15 year old boys are walking ball of hormones and having a willing partner instead of my hand would have been a welcome change. Would I want her as my girlfriend, no..... but as quickie? Why not.


And what if it was a man trapping you in that hospital elevator? How would you feel then?

EmmaLou: I really wish men could have that feeling that women do when we're walking alone or in a group with 2 or 3 girls and knowing that at any moment you could be attacked. The feeling of being so vulnerable is lost on men. However, every single one if their mothers, gfs, sisters, daughters, etc...have felt this on a regular basis. It's not a matter of age or attractiveness.



Do you honestly believe that men never feel afraid or vulnerable under any circumstances? That we don't walk through areas of potential danger watching our backs, jumping at every sound, with our car keys protruding from our fingers?

Your naiveté is astonishing.

Moriel: Came for the flood of ignorant, sexist jerks who promote a society that is dangerous to women.

Leaving .... well "satisfied" isn't quite the right word is it?


These "jerks" you're referring to are women like the writer, right? Because they're the ones promoting the society you talk about. Whatever those women can't get in life off their looks, they get by playing the victim card. Sad how bad it makes other women look.

Bisu: That immune system claim is a crock of shiat. I've read the studies suggesting it as well (actually more towards being attracted to someone with a DIFFERENT immune system than theirs), but it's bunk. I'd be prying them off with a stick if they were at all attracted to immune system. Maybe if EVERYTHING else were the exact same (looks, wealth, power) they'd pick the guy with a better immune system


I didn't say they drop their knickers and drag them to a jewelry store. It's just one many chemical messages that women have to deal with every day. It has some plausible methods to it's research and I don't really see why they'd make that up. Here's a another one you'll find silly and untrue. Some lesbians hear like men do. Women and men have different response curves in their hearing reception, hence the Fletcher and Munson "flat" curve, and many lesbians have the hearing response curves that are like the ones men have. Also, pizza is tasty, but that's just empirical observation and sales receipts.

Mambo Bananapatch: Pincy: Mambo Bananapatch: Pincy: CasperImproved: The reality is that we are all vulnerable to attack.

I'm assuming you are a man. You really walk around with the fear that you could be raped?

Do you suppose that's the only bad thing that could ever happen to anybody?

Umm, pretty sure the article we are discussing in this thread is about sexual harassment and rape. But I know, anybody at any time could be shot by some roving gang of thugs so women should just shut up about it.

Ummmmm, the comment you quoted said, "we are all vulnerable to attack." See that, right there in your post?

Ummmmmmmmmmm, and you replied, "You really walk around with the fear that you could be raped?"

Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, I gently reminded you that while a man may not fear rape, he still understands fear, which, incidentally, is at the essence of this matter.

If you need further clarification please just ask.


Everyone understands fear. Men do not understand rape like women do. Pretending otherwise is willful ignorance. The only reason the poster said "we are all vulnerable to attack." is to try and mitigate the whole point of the article in the first place.

Millennium: TFA: Ask your female friends, if you have any, if they've ever walked home late at night with a key pushed through their knuckles, just in case...

By the way, don't do that. It's actually more dangerous to you than to the other guy. Even if you do it "properly," when you punch someone the key will just disappear back behind your fingers, having done no significant harm to either party.


Don't punch- swipe. The jagged keys will rip up their face.

bunner: Coastalgrl: Here's a double standard I have encountered.

How come a guy can put two fingers to his lips and snake his tounge through the opening but it's illegal for me to flick him off?

Because that man is an arrogant, bedwetting, butterheaded dolt with the intelligence quotient of a piss pail who thinks that dating consists of making women feel uncomfortable and then laughing about it with his also thick as pigsh*t friends. And we haven't found a cure for that yet.


I agree with your statement but it doesn't answer the question. The act of flipping him off is a non-violent way of telling him I'm not interested and to buzz off. However, I'm told that I can actually get arrested by giving him the finger but it's ok for him to gesture to me that he would like to perform oral on me.

Like you know what men feel like. Ever? A man is much more likely to get randomly attacked than a woman. That's a statistical fact.


Men are chastised because they don't know what it's like to be a woman (and therefore react differently).
Women, however, somehow know exactly what it's like to be a man.

If being a man is so great, how come there's a disproportionate number of young white men committing suicide?

Completely different situation. The point is that most teenage boys would welcome an advance by an older women and as a result have a hard time understanding why a women wouldn't be interested if the situation was flipped.

Bisu: onyxruby: gilgigamesh: t may be regional. I live in the South. There's a certain gentility factor: women who work in my office have the door held open for them, men wait for them to exit the elevator before exiting themselves, that sort of thing

When I was about 22 or so I held the door open for a woman with a large armful of binders (10 inch stack). I walked on and she called out demanding that I stop. I was chewed as she explained that she had 'two perfectly good working arms' and started chewing me out in the hallway in front of everyone as she busily declared I was a sexist pig.

I was working for very well known company in their headquarters building, my office happened to be right near human resources. Turned out she worked in human resources and she decided to go full bore feminazi on me.

What intent!?? According to his version he simply held a door open for someone and a fellow co worker to boot. There is no intent in his version, you can't be accused of sexual harassment for holding a door open for someone.

I guess the gender-reversed issue would be this:

Imagine that women think it's funny to hit strange men in the nuts if they're not paying attention when they walk by. The woman's girlfriends giggle when she does it, the men glare after they've been hit and shuffle off.

The men try to explain to women that it HURTS when women hit them in the nuts. The women explain that guys are asking for it when they're walking without holding an object or their hands in front of their crotches when they're walking down the street.

Men say they're NOT ASKING FOR IT just because they're swinging their arms at their sides as they walk down the street, and women say, hey, you'll get the right to stop getting hit in the nuts when you stop getting paid 25% more than women and stop discriminating against women when considering management positions.

Tatterdemalian: Reminds me of this comment by Richard Dawkins, regarding Rebecca Watson:

"The man in the elevator didn't physically touch her, didn't attempt to bar her way out of the elevator, didn't even use foul language at her. He spoke some words to her. Just words. She no doubt replied with words. That was that. Words. Only words, and apparently quite polite words at that....Rebecca's feeling that the man's proposition was 'creepy' was her own interpretation of his behavior, presumably not his. She was probably offended to about the same extent as I am offended if a man gets into an elevator with me chewing gum. But he does me no physical damage and I simply grin and bear it until either I or he gets out of the elevator. It would be different if he physically attacked me."

The problem is that some people think the world would be a better place if words were more important than deeds, simply because it's easier to speak words than perform deeds. These people have attained sufficient political power to transform the system into one in which words are, in fact, treated by the law as more important than deeds, to the degree than even deeds like rape and murder can be excused if the magic words "I know that was wrong, and I apologize" are uttered by the criminal, while dissenting opinions are met with the "social justice" of permanent exile, if not "morally justified homicide."


The crazy part about that is the guy in the elevator was someone she had been hanging out with all night.. She appears not to have recognized him, because of a brain disorder she has. Seriously

For one thing, no cop with any dignity is going to drag a girl to jail for giving the finger to a jerk. All you'd have to do is tell them that you felt threatened and they'd have him hugging a wall. And, FWIW, guess what dickbag the cunnilingus salesman is looking for. A reaction. You gave him one. Don't. Stare through him like you just saw him sh*tting on on the sidewalk and hoof on.
