How people generally respond to such actions....

There is a significant difference...

If a random guy grabbed my ass, one of us is going to have the crap beaten out of us. Him or me depending on relative physical size and hand to hand combat skill. But one way or another, a beating will commence. Immediately.

I won't laugh or giggle it off due to 'surprise' or 'shock' as has been offered as a reason why some of the women in these cases did nothing about it at the time.

IMO that is why individuals who do this kind of thing repeat it. Because they get away with it the first time, and the second, and the third. They learn through experience that they can get away with it. If the FIRST time Weinstein grabbed somebody's butt, that individual knocked out two of his teeth, broke his nose, and cracked a rib or two, he would not have tried it a second time.

Fair or not, enabling the behavior has to stop.

      If we're listening, women say rape is that kind of crime. For the woman. For the man it certainly is sexual in his release. There is nothing else in the human experience that comes close to the... more

          Talk about wide latitude. No doesn't mean yes. Ever. "Put your rooty tooty point and shooty away, mister." Trump empowerered sexual assault, harassment, and intimidation like no other POTUS ever.
