I knew sooner or later it would come out about women sexually harassing and/ or assulting men or other women. I just read an article, Melanie Martinez is being changed for sexual assaulting another woman. Before things calm down I do believe that everyone at one time or another had been sexual harassed, sexually assaulted or raped. Now how do we deal with this? Does there need to be government standards set up so that no one is allowed to touch anyone, not allowed to say some words ever? Just stop flirting altogether? The zombie effect is already beginning with the phones so there is minimal contact with the new generation already, I also suspect that neck and upper back problems will be on the rise as well as glasses needed for ruined vision. How would you deal with being sexually harassed?
Singer Melanie Martinez, who rose to fame competing on season three of NBC’s “The Voice,” has been accused by a former friend of sexual assault. The alleged incident was detailed by Timothy Heller, herself an aspiring musician, who, in a four-part tweet, r

This is all coming out now but it has always been happening. I admit t sexually harassing people as a teen as I stupidly thought it was funny. I feel really bad about it now but I admit I did it. I have been pushed into doing things I wasn't ready to do with men who would not take no as an answer. I think that is much worse. Everyone needs to respect it if someone says no.

I grew up in the seventies, when squeezing or slapping a woman's bum, was not considered wrong, even though many women didn't want it to happen. I believe many of these accusations come from those times when what is unacceptable now, was acceptable. Yes, women had to be given the right to say no, if they didn't like something without the risk of losing their job or losing a promotion, but we have probably gone too far now, where flirting seems to be a risky business.

If I was sexually harassed I would report it to the authorities. Not sure if that would be of help, but would handle it that way. The key is having no fear of alerting the authorities, and having those authorities thoroughly investigating the harassment to come to a reasonable conclusion.

I have been sexually harassed, when I was in high school. I reported it to my teachers. One took action to remedy the situation (moving the boy away from me and threatening to kick him out of class permanently if he continued with the behavior,) the other (an elderly male P.E. teacher who didn't like me) just told me to "stay away" from the boys who were bothering me. It wasn't something that traumatized me or anything, it's just a fact of life that some people are pigs, especially at that age. I agree that everyone has been sexually harassed, assaulted, or raped at some point or other. At least according to today's standards. I wonder how people will develop romantic relationships in the future if flirting or expressing interest becomes taboo. We also all know that some women lie about these things, at least I have known plenty who made up stories as a way to get revenge. It's a good way to run a man off (say an unwanted ex who you don't want seeing the kids; just lie and say you suspect he's molesting the kid -- I had relatives who did that) or ruin his life. I think women who are caught lying about these allegations should be charged with a crime; maybe if they faced felony charges for false accusations, they would stop doing it and then people wouldn't be inclined to question whether victims are telling the truth or not.
