Why do some men think it's ok pressure women to give in to their desires after she turned him down?


Of course, this happens to more people than only women, but women seem to be the primary targets for unwanted touching, aggressive 'flirting' and other forms of potentially frightening street harassment. Why is behavior still seen as ok by so many people?

    Harassment transgresses social lines, but many women don't talk about it. Media doesn't cover it because it's not a money maker, and most women don't like being violated in that way. A slap or kick often does nothing more than enrage the guy.

    Chivalry has its good points, but the idea of the passive female being taken care of the strong male is part of the problem. Why not teach our young people to treat everyone with respect and embrace diversity? You do have a point on movies/tv.
