They asked three hundred 15-18 year old boys to take a sex-based survey seriously?

How about we teach situational awareness and assertiveness to children, and stop painting any such measures as "victim blaming". Some people are just predatory and shiatty no matter how much you tell men to tell them to "don't rape".

It is hard as a teenager to get started with sex.  If I could do it again I would love that women are now being more aggressive.   If I only could have had sex each time a woman came onto me as a teenager, it would have sped up all the lessons I learned in my later 20 's.

When I was about 18 (circa 1987 or so), I worked in an office full of women. 30+ - no men, except me. I was too naïve to realize that I had several sexual opportunities on the table. I had my ass slapped repeatedly. I had my junk groped a few times. Called "Cute" and "hot" all the time, and "dear" constantly. But I didn't feel harassed - I liked the attention. And had I known then what I know now, would've taken advantage of the situation.

Noooo, men are actors, women are acted upon.  Women have no agency!  Only men!  IMPOSSIBLE!

well DUH.
do the people who do these studies live in caves?

Of course we are. First, we don't care nearly as much. Second, there's nothing wrong with an unwanted advance. To keep going once it's turned down is the issue.

I wish they would have included unwanted homosexual advances. It's a biatch being straight and gorgeous...
Creeps throughout my life.
Teachers, book store patrons, grocery store employees, and so on. Groooooooooss!

Yeah, it happens, but they have only been unwelcome since I've been married. Well except for the stalker I had when I was 20.

"Victim" in this context?

My first job had me programming in a number of companies. One of which was seemed staffed entirely by gorgeous 20 something women. They had an old IBM line printer there where you lifted the lid and taped on the underside was an ASCII porn shot of a dude with an huge erection.


I was a shy 18yo. I look back at my experience there as a sea of missed opportunities.

Unwanted?

Recipient? Yes.

Victim? No.

It's never harassment when an attractive person does it.

However some people are not so good at assessing their own attractiveness.

gajillion: From the study: Students who were sexually coerced while drunk or drugged showed significant distress, according to the findings. However, having unwanted sex did not appear to affect the victims' self-esteem. It may be the case that sexual coercion by women doesn't affect males' self-perceptions in the same way that it does when women are coerced. Instead it may inadvertently be consistent with expectations of masculinity and sexual desire

That's kinda disturbing right there.


I guess a lack of sympathy for female victims could be explained if guys are thinking "I don't see your problem, I'd be okay if it happened to me, hey, free sex."

I have been hit on plenty of times by women I wasn't interested in. I told them I wasn't interested, some of them persisted for a moment until I made it abundantly clear that I really wasn't interested, but even when I wasn't interested I still found it flattering. I generally tried to be as polite as possible even when they were persistent. At no time during one of those experiences did I feel like I was a 'victim'.

Heck... the only time I ever felt much like a 'victim' in regards to women was when I was in high school and asked out a girl who wasn't interested. She was downright mean about it. Of course, 10 years later I ran into her at a coffee house and she hit on me. I reminded her of how shiatty she was to me in high school and then said, "So... no thanks." She later came over to me and apologized for being a biatch when she was young. I still didn't go out with her.

That is part of the problem.  But also with women there is more worry of aggression.  If a man makes unwanted sexual advances to a woman, it's more often seen (by the woman) as an act of aggression, especially when the man won't stop after being asked to.

But men don't worry about women assaulting in them the same way women worry about men assaulting them.  Men are, statisticly, more likely to be assaulted by other men than by women.
