I think it's good that it raises awareness of the problem, but this is nothing but propaganda.

So, she was asking for it? What if she was a woman who lived there or had to go to work there?

I don't think you fully understand what I meant.

She went to what looked like low income areas, where most people don't learn proper etiquette.

I'm all for the protection of women's rights, but I feel that some feminists use it as a way to bully men into a corner.

I understood you perfectly. It's just that you cannot excuse someone's bad behaviour just because they don't know any better. You do that for children, not for adults.

This is a similar argument made in cases of rape -- "Why did you get drunk? Why did you wear the tight dress? Why go to the club in a tight dress and get drunk and talk to a stranger? Didn't you realize there would be men who think it's ok to take advantage?" It is absolutely true that there is a large element of personal responsibility. But just because the woman was irresponsible does not mean it's ok for the men to harass/rape.

It's a societal issue and not "just" a women's issue which affects only women -- it affects men too (but only those who have wives/girlfriends, daughters and mothers and female relatives and friends :) ). I am simply saying that society (men and women) should recognize street harassment as a widespread problem and not treat it as "one of those things boys do because they don't know any better that girls have to put up with".

Anyway, just my two cents...

I was saying that this woman was trying to present a biased agenda, and did this by going to areas of New York where she'd be most likely to be harassed.

I wasn't talking about women in general. Just this woman in particular.

Yes, even if the agenda is biased (she may just be doing it to get fame), the point of harrassment being widespread is valid and hopefully educates the public. But I'm afraid people will focus on the messenger more than on the message.

It may seem like a funny video (they may just be doing it for the clicks), but that doesn't make their point invalid.

damn I harass people on a daily basis :*(

Yeah, I hadn't watched the video, and expected some harsh/dirty stuff said against the girl. Just watched it, and it's usually only those things that you said. How is that harassment? lol


Not saying it doesn't occur, I know it does.

I think this girl has mental problems or got raped by her dad when she was a kid.

This is just normal street banter for New York. Somewhere else like a small town or whatever, people wouldn't even say anything to her. This is not a serious problem worldwide at all and it's not something that can be changed. It's human nature.

Lol that video exposed nothing but how stuck up a female is at times, sexual harassment? sure, maybe 3 or 4 instances in that entire video,

but have a nice day, good evening, how are you and hell beautiful? no, not harassment,

if thats harassment than damn, i've done it a billion times, when i go out in public i make it an effort to make people smile, i've walkied up to random girls and usually i say this exact thing

"in case nobody has told you today, i think you are beautiful, and i hope that i make you smile" and then i walk away, i've done it at parks, in stores, hell one day i said it to a cashier at Wal-Mart,

one day there was a girl looking at the weight loss products at wal mart, she was maybe, 17? idk, probably 190 pounds, now, last year, i decided to get myself in shape and bought some weight loss products from wal mart so i decided to0 help her a bit, she was already holding one of the bottles i used, but shye was unsure if she should choose that, or, something else, so i gave her my advice and told her which product helped me lost 30 pounds, i then walked away, but decided to go back up to her, both her mom and dad were standing there and i told her "I just thopught i'd tell you that with or without tghe weight loss you are a very beautiful girl right now and you don't even NEED to lose weight"

holy hell if thats sexual harassment than she sure didn't show any discomfort cuz she hugged me right there, and her dad even thanked me as i walked away, THAT GIRL KNEW HOW TO TAKE A COMPLIMENT, why is it that so many other females take it as a man trying to get in their pants?

I don't see this as "men" I see this as "men of colour". You say men harass, I say coloured people harass.

You paint with your brush and I'll paint with mine.

A lot of those guys were just making kind conversation, not harassing her.
I've never even heard of this street harassment until tumblr.
