It's a common scenario in life. Man loses his self-control, 'tries it on' with female aquaintance or colleague. He grabs hold of her, trying to kiss her, fondling her through her clothes; (but without undressing her or touching any private parts.) The woman is not interested in him - she makes this clear, pushing the man off, turning her head away to prevent kissing, telling the man in no uncertain terms to 'get off and leave me alone'.
This situation is commonplace all over the world - man desires woman, she doesn't feel the same way about him ! (It never happens the other way round - obviously because men's sexual urges are a lot stronger than women's. )
(We are not talking about children here - both people are adults, i.e. 18 or over. Adult male, tries it on unsucessfully, with adult female. )
Say the man eventually gives up, realising he's not going to get his way, he leaves her alone.
So in the end nothing much happened, except the MAN is a LOSER. He ends up frustrated, feelings and pride hurt.
The woman comes out of it the WINNER - satisfied, having kept her self-respect, and successfully and forcefully rebutted the man's advances, as she has a perfect right to do .
But - has a CRIME been committed ?
Probably in most countries in the world, people would say as nothing actually happened in the end, just bad behaviour but not really a crime that you have to call the police.
But do WE think in here OUR country ? Has there ever been a survey of what our people think? Mainstream wants to know if attitudes are changing, and if men feel differently from women, about this situation.
Please take our very short 'Citizen Survey' - ONE entry only please.
