I don't know how to post youtube
videos on here, but here's a guy giving his rebuttal to the video. It's entitled:Saying Hi To a Woman = Harassment? Yes According to Feminists (10 Hours of Walking In NYC As a Womanhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uP1Vxu2erq4
One of the posters in the comments section, named "IncliningPizza"
, says something interesting:
IncliningPizza wrote:"Come on, dawg... so you're saying that only in specific circumstances convenient to the one-being-eyeballed is when it is okay to hit on somebody? It's a public space, and as long as somebody isn't verbally harassing you with lewd comments or physical contact, treat them as human people with human desires.
See, the problem is that a lot of women don't seem to realize that when they are born, they don't have to earn their sexual power like men do; they are born with it. The reason why so many men are saying, "shut the fuck up" is because it is so much harder to earn that validation for males than it is for females."
Don't get me wrong; some of the guys hitting on her were complete fucking idiots
. And unlike men, women have a very real fear
that men will never have. Never underestimate that effect on a female's psyche. However...
....she deliberately put on some skin-tight jeans (in order to attract illicit attention for the video)
, and spent 10 hours walking through rough neighborhoods. The vast majority of men talking to her or approaching her were minorities (black and hispanic
). And many of the statements made to her are polite.
If she walked around on the streets like that in my hometown (over 80% white, upper-middle class town)
, nobody would bother her.
It's weird. The women I date, and the women I see on the Internet....all say that they want the man to take the initiative and take charge.
Women are mostly complaining about the men that they don't like
approaching them. They have more sexual and social bargaining power than a man will ever have, and often feel regret when they become old....and lose this.
