Comment #6609273 by John M

Women will soon have no reason to fear harassment from men. Most men will be too afraid to even speak to a woman for fear of being accused of sexual misconduct

    @John M: This young lady had some awful experiences involving men, could you blame her if her view is going to be tainted a little? Come on its not like she’s giving out about someone manspreading or calling her “love”. She is a genuine victim. Don’t let the feminist zealots cloud your vision and make you assume every woman is just having a moan.

    @John M: She also addresses that men can have similar experiences in the article… did you read it? It was actually pretty balanced, for a change I know, but still. Credit where credits due.

    @John M: Not meaning to sound insensitive given the nature of the article, but if you are investing money, buy shares input the sexbot and cat food industries, because its obvious males and females are being divided.

    @John M: “Women will soo have no reason to fear harassment from men.” – If only this would be the case. However, you nicely segued into how it’s to prevent a problem for men, so you’ve shown you have no interest or concern for how females lives are impacted by sexual violence.

    @Bairéid Rísteard: Not meaning to, but successfully succeeding to. What you fail to recognise is that females are no longer agreeing to be treated with disrespect and to be subjected to incidents of sexual violence from childhood. And the division you think is happening would be due to some males not wanting to alter that behaviour.

    @Felicity Hensen: male suicide is 4 times that of women in ireland, yet women are always the victims. i have no doubt that both sexes get mistreated, there are evil people out there. However, i guarantee for every mistreated or ‘disrepected’ women, there is a man trapped in marriage to a psychologically abusive woman.

    @John M: I understand what your getting at, but don’t think she was trying to paint them as typical female experiences, these were her own. However you have to accept that all young women are potentially at risk in clubs and parties where there is nobody to look out for them … not from the average guy, but from predators like those sick f..ks. The danger from just a couple of active predators on a Saturday night hangs over them all. As for the ‘me too’ fad, the way it unfolding, it does create undeserved discomfort for any genuine young guy hoping to meet a girl, or have a bit of banter, glad I’m past all that. But it won’t discourage lecherous types, they don’t care if they make someone feel intimidated. A ‘p!ss off pervert’ campaign would be more appropriate.

    @Bairéid Rísteard: What does that rate of male suicide have to do with the rate of sexual violence perpetrated towrds females? Unless you are correlating the suicides numbers are, in part, because of unreported incidents of sexual violence. If your guarantee was true then all married men are trapped in a marriage to a psychologically abusive woman, because all females have at least once in their lives been subjected to some form of inappropriate sexual behaviour.

    @John M: I agree. That in itself is an absurd statement. Personally I think modern, marxist feminism only brings problems for women. Keep telling people they’re victims and they’ll think they’re victims, even when they’re not. In this case, this young lady was a victim and most people’s reaction has been rather unsympathetic because they perceive this as another man bashing article. The words, crying and wolf, come to mind.
