    In the Gay quarter I walked home, a bunch of bears whistling at my short covered ass. I felt turned on, intimidated but I wish I had met some of them on Grindr. I'm not up for the gang bang they intimated :cry:

    :O

    I am not defending those creepy guys that sexually harass women as they're vulgar creatures.
    I feel like at some point,men will not be allowed to even look at a woman without being called a creep
    Well wolf whistling at someone is creepy, deal with it. There's a massive difference between looking at someone and staring with your tongue hanging out of your mouth too

    Yes but you're meant to filter your language.
    You do not have to go into detail, as other gay members of tsr do type such words.

    How am I going to filter that example?

    It's like, if a woman is scared of rape. I can't imagine but help the bears as individuals with me

    You do not need to talk about your clothing or mention a porn site.

    It's relevant. Like if a woman said she is wearing hot pants. Guys are going t olook. Grindr is the Tinder for gays, not a porn :confused:

    This is already happening actually. Women can pretty much interpret and report anything as a sexual crime these days - some take it to an absurd level and some don't. It will get investigated however due to the serious nature of the allegation, regardless of the outcome.

    So if a man sees an attractive women he does a distinctive whistle, but I see it as harmless.
    A woman is not a dog and does not need to be whistled at.

    Natural mating call and people get all angry and in uproar fml.

    Just because you used the word "natural" as if it means anything / a lot.

    1) Why appeal to nature? (wikipedia article)
    2) If you do appeal to nature, I can guess you're hypocritical.
    Remember cannibalism and rape can be natural, therefore does that open the possibility of it being good?
    Hospitals are unnatural, therefore they are bad by this reasoning. Do you agree?
    If the answers to those questions are "no", then you're inconsistent morally, therefore you're hypocritical.

    I think it's one of these things that unless you've been there and done that, you really have no idea.

    I've been whistled at by teenage boys who were clearly trying to do it to get my attention, which didn't do anything. I can ignore that. But if it's an older man who won't leave me alone, then yeah, that's creepy and not acceptable.

    Who are you to tell people how to word their posts? Are you a mod? No, you are not. Furthermore, we are all big boys and girls here, young and old, and there is nothing here that I haven't heard before as 2 of my children are gay. The only content on this thread that I have found offensive is the notion you have of women who enjoy your unwanted attention and you defending your behaviour.
    Oh, and I doubt whether this thread will be removed. Whereas threads you have started about the poor and other vulnerable members of society have been removed because of your inappropriate content started by you. The majority of threads you have started on TSR smack of hypocrisy and prejudice.

    No I am not a mod, but I still have the right to guide and advise certain members of tsr about their use of wording and phrases.
    I am just simply providing a normal discussion.
