    Absolutely not. If sexual harassment/assault on the tube was a more common occurrence then maybe, but London is hardly India. As it is it would simply do more harm than good, segregating people just promotes distrust and dehumanisation.

    That may be because men do not want to be discriminated against by a bunch of misandrists.
    It's not being discriminated against. There would still be a lot of perfectly functioning carriages. It's no worse than not getting on a train because it was too full. You can't argue that men get harassed as much as women, so it's not the same. It's no different to having a quiet carriage, or first class (obviously these examples are on trains and not the underground, but still.)

    From what I see it's a lot of men saying the issue is not sufficient for a woman to be able to make a choice to place her in an environment where she is far, far less likely to have a problem with harassment.

    Well that is everyone’s go to defense! They say they want to have a separate coach for woman due to being "felt up" which would be done by anyone attracted to them, regardless of actual gender, so yes "what about lesbians?" is very relevant. I am in no way homophobic, but I can see the point why should Men be singled out and no one else. I mean not every Man has the intention of paying lets face it obscene amount of money just to touch a sweaty bum or grab a bit of stranger boob no! I think some of the girls who think they are being felt up and purely wishful thinking secretly hoping that a stranger finds them hot and they love it!

    I think that this is a ridiculous idea at the end of the day I'm all for woman having rights but for them to have the same rights as men no lower no higher. If you're thinking along these lines maybe we should have trains for different nationalities, different ages, different hair colour, that makes about as much logical sense as this!

    can you
    please
    get your head out of your ass
    and don't tell women who feel violated that they liked it

    and no, it wouldn't be 'done by anyone attracted to them, regardless of actual gender'
    how many times have you been catcalled by a woman on the street
    how many times have you been felt up by a woman
    i'm not saying it couldn't happen but the occurrence must be ridiculously small in comparison

    aside from the fact that LESBIANS HAVE THIS PROBLEM JUST AS MUCH AS OTHER WOMEN

    wow. really, wow.

    if you google india not dangerous for women, it'll come up with pages upon pages of western media denouncing india as a hell-hole for women.

    remember, most of what you know is what you've been fed by western, white male dominated media.

    Regarding OP; maybe it'd be alright, and I wouldn't object to it but I don't think it's entirely necessary. I think it would be quite cool though, though it could promote segregation.

    one incident, however traumatic, tells you nothing about anything at all.

    you have to bear in mind media sensationalism which will pick and choose which bits of information are given to you.

    I don't like using rape cases as tools in a debate though. All rape is bad, and it's endemic, and it happens everywhere. Don't make judgemental and disparaging remarks about a particular country just because it's been focussed on so much.

    just to clarify I really actually am taking the piss. Please please please don't think that for a second I think RoK is a credible source on anything, even less so Roosh V or whatever his name is.

    Sometimes I wonder what would happen if everyone here were to suddenly meet.

    No. That can be confused as women's rights but segregation certainly seems to be a step back. Don't tell feminists that, though :yawn:
