Its exactly that mentality that allows such a deplorable act to be laughed off.

It wasn't a strange behavior, it was a wrong behavior that he should have known better, yet decided he just didn't care or was above it somehow.

Frigid b**** vs. 'asking for it'. Nun vs. sl**. Then women are to wear heat absorbing black all-over coverings like they are censored and it becomes common for men to look to young (often immigrant) males because it's arrestable to be in public with non-related females.

Saucermen! We need those evolvo-rays over here... pronto!

I'm not Rachel Welch but I've had so many grabs and special hugs lets say in my life so far. I can still only imagine what smaller women in jobs with even more contact with the public deal with, but as I say I've been grabbed at by women a couple times too. Sometimes I feel well, why flip your lid over a lot of small potatoes stuff like that, even coming out of the blue from an unexpected person as it often has, so maybe it's just saying, yes, me too, this goes on, and it is what it is, not violent assault but something that the imposer should feel like a jerk about. And men or women pushing themselves at young males are just as bad to me, and yet someone like Allen Ginsberg known for going after young wannabe poet guys is still somehow a cool 'icon' of the '60s or left? Yucko! Not to say someone isn't talented, like Bill Cosby certainly was, but it must hurt their victims to see them honored in anyway, and helps keep them silent in the face of such status.

Laughing at them where it is as much weird as inappropriate could be the right thing if everyone laughs, makes them feel stupid and not their target! If Louis C.K. pulled his twig out at me I'd definitely have laughed. Maybe we should be teaching empathy in school (along with basic finances and how to pay bills).

The pendulum has swung.
