Sadbuttrue, your a caucasian man pretending to be someone your not. you are mocking women which is a sign of disrespect. furthermore, why should a woman have to ask for a man's defense, it should be him helping her without her having to ask. it's about helping each other and pulling each other up. sexual harrassment is tough to battle, especially when your being called by a random stranger and he gets to get away with it but you have to hear those insults in your head. it is about power and these men are just not fond of respecting women. it's predatory a behavior but women who dress, talk and act like slut are inviting those types of men in berate their integrity so that's their fault but the women i saw on news one weren't like that but this called taking advantage of women and because these men were raised to believe women show a sign of weakness, these women won't retaliate? I have to admit i don't know what i would do if i was sexually harrassed or insulted.

You should have to ask you should do it because its your job as men to "Provide, Protect, Lead, Mentor, Father, Husband, Guide and be the Pillars of your communities" and your not doing your jobs as men!

That falls under Protection and the simply that I had to tell you means your LOST and don't know your position as a man!

I get harassed all the time, I don't dress slutty I dress fashionable and carry myself with some element of class. Yet, MOST not all BM make "lewd remarks, ask me to be a Mistress, can I do friends with benefits etc", I know I don't come across that way!

I honestly think that your so you to be "Disrespectful" when someone tells you many BM get "Insulted" . As I said it happens too much......I don't go around BM. Even when your nice they feel its a right to disrespect a woman or they make inappropriate remarks!

The worse are married men!

That's not about power you and most BM don't have any power! Your dropping lower than the immigrants who excel over you!

Sexual harrassment is tough to battle. What one does for others, others should do for them. Women have protested and marched for Trayvon martin and Michael brown. The least the men could do is return that same concern back around. Sexual harrassment is a invasion of civil rights. This must be a race thing because it wouldn't be in the AA news. Sexual assault, sex trafficing and rape are all a woman's thing-its a woman issue, I get that but black women are vulnerable and are not protected. We can't preach power and unity without lifting our own up. Lets be nicer and caring towards each other. Lets give it in return please. We can be nicer can we? Does it pay to be caring to each other and there for each other?
