Correction: In light of the news feed in the past 24 hours have you ever been victim of sexual assault or sexual harrasment?
No, thankfully. Male privilege helps in this area. I have stopped a sexual assault/harassment a couple times however.
Both, more than once.
This is a difficult statistic to measure without clearly defining what constitutes the behavior described.
Also, since the population answering is so small, it's hard to say whether or not they're representative of the majority.
To answer the question: yes.
I'd be curious to know what people's definition is off sexual harassment. I've had women say and do worse things to me than some of the descriptions I've been reading. I took it as a joke, or a fork of flirting. Only if I felt threatened, either physically or professionally, would I consider it harassment.
I had a girl grab my dick as she passed us in a casino once...presumably on a dare. She appeared to be egged on by her group of girls to do it.
I was fine with it. But I suppose by definition it was sexual assault regardless of my comfort level with strangers fondling my genitals.
Random shit is going to happen at the Borgota.
One time a guy said hi to me. That was rape and I had him executed.
I’ve gotten catcalled, but, thankfully, never assaulted. I hope it never happens.
Yep been harassed and grabbed by customers at a previous job and in general life. Was stalked multiple times. One was a janitor at my university who stalked four of us and even forcibly grabbed and kissed one of the girls. Sadly I think most women experience at least some sexual harassment or worse in a lifetime.
Forgot to put in that janitor was fired after we testified at a union hearing.
At this point, I’m pretty sure I’m the ONLY guy to have never masterbated into a plant, grabbed a pussy, force kissed a woman, etc on Earth.
Sounds like somebody's in denial :D
Harassment at work....and the perpetrator was fired. Never assault. But I've had a lot of creepy stalkers over the years. Age seems to solve that problem on its own. 😎
Yes, sexual assault.
I was the victim of sexual harassment at work. It was by the same guy in two minor incidents. I've just avoided him since then. It wasn't a big enough deal to report and was more just flirting until he put his hands on me the second time.
No. And I’d say a significant portion of these accusers oozing out of the woodwork haven’t either.
Why do you say that?
My guess is they too have engaged in sexual misconduct
No. The primary reason is the increasingly diluted definitions of harassment and assault.
One of the secondary reasons is the female propensity to lie.
For an object lesson in why one should doubt such accusations, see the individual who knows virtually nothing about me, doesn’t even know what sex I am, but guesses I have engaged in sexual misconduct.
Yes. From my idiot step brother. I fought back but my real brother has serious issues. He smokes weed a lot and doesn’t care about anyone or anything.
I was harassed once. A gay guy at a rest stop tried to look at my oui oui while I was taking a leak, then told me I had a nice ass and scampered off before I finished.
Harassment many times, assault once. Although I sometimes don’t think the latter “counts,” because while it was horrible for someone to do, it all seems mild in comparison to some of the horrific abuses I know others have experienced. No long-term trauma, more a “that was shitty and pretty gross, oh well” for me.
(Again I guess) yes, several times
I really like your picture
