Yes yes, the ongoing culture of teaching women to be afraid of EVERY SINGLE Man they meet that they don't know, or sometimes even know for that matter.
How sad that the ridicule of men's culture has come so far in just a few short decades.
Women are taught to behave like men when it comes to sex. Hook up as many times as you want with whomever you want. Dress as skimpily as you want, and they even hold slut walks. Why keep drawing it back to sex if the point is that you aren't inviting sex and objectifying yourself by dressing/behaving that way?
And of course, there is always the truth that when a woman sleeps around a lot, everyone knows, and that carries its own reputation. People will say that's making sex dirty or bad, but that's not true. What makes sex dirty or bad is when you cheapen it and sleeping around with multiple partners at the drop of hat tends to do that. It's a risky behavior that shows a lack of respect for both you and your partners
No it feeds the image that a man following her in the dark could be a rapist. That's nor a looney feminist notion it's just the truth.

Sex does not mean lack of respect. You can meet someone have fun have sex and part never to meet again in an entirely respectful way.
I would suggest alcohol is probably the main cause of bad sexual encounters.
So while I would agree lack of respect is an issue, it because we view sex a dirty. Not because sex is bad.

In my opinion this thread is designed to promote anger and hostility.
in my opinion, a lot of threads here on ATS are designed to promote anger and hostility. as well as confusion, frustration, fear, and paranoia.
Don’t allow psychological rape or commit it yourself. Psychological rape consists of verbal harassment, whistles, kissing noises, heavy breathing, sly comments or stares. These are all assaults on any woman’s sense of well-being. The underlying intention is to intimidate the woman. They are power plays couched in the language of sex.

Amazing what an edumication gets you these days. Make sure not to breath heavy or show interest in women, because you might be a rapist.
Oddly enough, if you're at a bar, and a girl likes you, she might be mad you're not doing one or two of these… Must be the alcohol.edit on 1-3-2014 by boncho because: (no reason given)
Yes, I have. It even went as far as suggestive touching. And I've seen plenty of men get the same type of attention, and much more, in public spaces. I see it all the time. It is quite annoying and uncomfortable. But no one is calling it "psychological rape" since it was done by women. Because men apparently can't say no or something.
I would think that the discomfort level would be just as bad for men as it is for women. It should not have to happen to men either.
But some folks on this thread are using the strange justification that because it can happen to men, why not women.
People that objectify others tend to be insecure and desperate.
"sexual harassment complaints", she threw at any MALE that she got mad at. you are right it WAS FRIGHTING. especially with the "power" she had over EVERY MALE in the workplace, all due to "sexual harassment laws.
That's a good point..

There is a difference between being aware and concerned and being afraid. Being afraid makes you a victim before anything has actually happened to you and predators sense that.
