I have replied to a few blogs on various aspects of this video and it has brought to mind some of the many instances I have experienced, throughout my life, of this type of behaviour from men.
The time, place and context of each occasion made a huge difference to my reaction, depending on whether I felt afraid, embarrassed or just plain pissed off.
It’s funny though how at the time I thought a lot of it was just a fact of life and had to be put up with. Now that I have two daughters of my own though, and also because of a lot of hard work by women’s groups world-wide, I feel quite differently.
I can take a “joke” with the best of them but unfortunately there are still too many men getting away totally inappropriate behaviour and passing it off as “having a laugh”.
It seems that having a penis, even if it is coming out of the middle of their foreheads, still gives SOME men a feeling of superiority.
