First it was the Christian priests, then Nuns, and christian people, then Jewish Rabbies and then the Jews, Then the Muslims, then the Affluent/rich people, then the politicians, then the entertainment people, then certain races of people or of countries.

Now you may realise that this happens in ALL SOCIETIES in varying ways. Basically, if you give a person the power to abuse and get away with it - THEY WIL DO IT! Maybe that is why university students lose their virginity and use drugs and alcohol - because THEY CAN!

This happens against both genders, it's just we're only sensitized to seeing it against women, and it's only acceptable for women to complain about it.

A silly example, 'Strictly Come Dancing', BBC prime time show, showed a pair of dancers falling over. The woman then 'jokingly' lay on top of the male dancer who was on his back on the floor. If this had been vice versa, the male dancer would be all over the papers and his career would be over. As it was, people laughed about it, made light of it, and even said how he was lucky! It wouldn't even have been an option for him to object.

Feminism means parity, equality, and consistent expectations. If we're happy to state that a flirtacious comment or an arm round the shoulder can be an assault or a crime, then it cannot be accepted from anyone - that includes women, best mates, even relatives. As a society we have to decide what we will accept and what really counts as consent, not who is allowed to do what. It would cut out the grey areas and hold us all to the same standards, at long last.
