Saw a tweet saying us gymnastics should not be allowed to compete next Olympics as punishment. I disagree, but have to wonder

It's not "unintentional", he moved his hands around to touch and press her "waist", he thought he could get away with it. He will be wrong.

Of course the difficulty was catching them in the act, so they set up an easy report system to see where the 'hot spots' were and send police there frequently.

So while it may not be possible to snuff it all out, it is possible to make certain concrete threats punishable and enforce the law.

The part I've put in bold is a big difference though. That behaviour is straying into the area of stalking. If you listen to what Liz Frazer said in that video - she was careful to distance herself from saying that was acceptable.

Here's a debate on TV on this subject. I totally agree with Liz Frazer talking a lot of common sense. Her opening line she says was flippant that she used to joke about walking round again if she didn't get a wolf-whistle when passing a building site.

Danni Levy wanting a law but saying women wouldn't report it for a one-off occurrence is living in la la land.

Good debate though. They've apparently done a poll in which the majority of women in the UK do not want a law passed that would make catcalling and wolf whistling a criminal offence.

It's impossible to find one rule to fit all cases of wolf-whistling that constitute harrassment.

SMH. And Westerners mock Muslims for considering just about any/all physical contact an assault.
The breast is not a sexual organ either. And you can pretty much hang it all out except being mandated by convention to cover the nipple. Squeezing someone's breasts is sexual assault, as is squeezing someone's ass. The butt is certainly a visually stimulating part of a woman for men an men sexualize women's butts and hips. Gripping someone's ass cheeks has a very different connotation than gripping someone's arm. So I don't quite understand your rationale.

It's fine to disagree, though I wouldn't advocate you grabbing anyone's ass. To dismiss it as "nonsense" though is rather callous. I dislike the modern rape hysteria as much as the next man, but let's not take it too far in claiming grabbing a woman's ass is not sexual assault.
