Here is a chart of EEOC sexual harassment complaints filed and their resolutions. I'm not going to interpret them now, but if you look at the states you can draw some interesting conclusions...

Its not sexual harassment if he grabs you by the throat- might have looked like he was joking with you to the people that couldnt hear him-- im not saying it was OK at all because its not but I just can't accept the fact that everyone would let that punk get away with that- hearing what you did.

I like to think of myself as 'tough' but if a situation come to head- I've got a very sharp knife and I've flicked it out before to scare shady people off.. I would definitely cary some kind of pepper spray if I didnt have my knife though.. ya never know.

One of my closest friends was held up against a wall in elementary school and had her pants pulled down behind the school, while being told how fat and ugly her body was.
I unfortunately can relate. I was manhandled as a child.. something I was punished for when I decided to fight back. Some older guys were bullying my older brother. I of course defended him and the leader of the pack proceeded to use his forearm to choke me against a chain link fence and run his free hand down my body. I, of course, but his forearm and was suspended.

I wasn't even 7 years old.

How the **** is that a natural instinct? I'm guessing he saw someone in his life doing that to another girl.

Which brings me to my own flesh and blood cousin. He sexually assaulted me from a young age until I turned 13 and refused to visit him anymore. He affected me so badly that I still can't full relax. Even in the bath-tub.

Girls wear clothes that make themselves feel good. They rarely wear them for others, unless they have to (a job for instance may have a uniform that isn't very covering)

I've also seen women come onto men. Some of them like it, some of them recoil. It's unfair to assume they enjoy it, because more often than not they don't.

Also we are way more developed than most animals. We cannot use that excuse for bad behavior.

While I'm on a roll I should mention that I did something really stupid, and thankfully it didn't bite me in the butt. I flew 7,000 miles and stayed in a state I've never been to and met up with someone I had never met. Never once did he do anything that set off my paranoid radar. Never once did he make any advances that I felt I was in any danger. He was the perfect gentleman.

So the fact some people say that it's instinct to behave this erratically and this disgustingly.. you are wrong.
