Vote. Talking exclusively about whether men getting harassed from women is just as bad as women getting sexually harassed from men. Same-sex harassment isn't part of this poll.

This isn't even debatable

Witty biological-political hybrid jokes are the reason this place fails to cater to a wide audience

Like I said in the other thread, I don’t doubt it happens, but it ridiculous to suggest women are as bad as men when it comes to harassment.

It’s only ever happened to me with gay men, I genuinely cannot think of a time a women has done it.

Well the public opinion seems pretty unanimous.

You asked a question about statistics, it's not opinion it's verifiable fact - and has no bearing on individual cases.

This is a pretty classic example of what false equivalence does to serious, nuanced issues. Because the concept of sexual harassment against men was/is dismissed by many people, it's rightly important to recognise that it does happen.

The importance of recognising that and promoting the fact that men can and do get sexually harassed unfortunately gets dumbed down and corrupted as having to say the harassment of men is exactly the same as the harassment of women, and happens at the exact same levels - because it's a much easier way to sell the concept to sceptics. It just isn't true though.

Can men be sexually harassed by women? Yes!

Are men sexually harassed by women in the exact same ways women are harassed by men? No!

Are men sexually harassed by women at the same rate as women are harassed by men? Not even close.

No one is saying it doesn't happen. Just no where near as bad as for women and it doesn't warrant a thread.

A wise man once told me that it's better to have many small threads than only a few big threads, but let's leave this one die, ey?

Well, it's also only part of the issue though isn't it? These types of statements are typically made (certainly in internet discussions) to dismiss the seriousness of the experiences of women within society. One in five women have experienced sexual assault, predominantly carried out by men? Well this women assaulted this man so it isn't a thing to do with men, anyone can do anything to anyone else in isolation. It's a nonsense argument to make.

I really hope that you’re genuinely learning a lot from these conversations over the past few days.

I am, especially Cora's conversation the other day about black representation, and Cuttooth's comments in this thread.

Oh strawberry float I voted for the wrong thing as I miss read the question.

Yes anyone getting sexually harassed is equally as bad, but in general women get harassed way more than men do. It's the same with domestic violence, nobody should have to live through that, but more women in general will suffer from that than men do, but it's equally as bad for any victim of domestic violence.
