Abuse, intimidation, and degradation are all part of men's repertoire of tactics employed in competitive situations. In other words, men are not treating women differently from men—the definition of discrimination, under which sexual harassment legally falls—but the opposite: Men harass women precisely because they are not discriminating between men and women.

Let slip the dogs of war. There are many things I can point at in this article that I do not quite agree with, some of the resolutions are too simplistic to be true, discarding the complexity of reality for the force of a nicely formatted article. Which may be fine in term for a webpage.

But this last paragraph rings quite interestingly true. If we define the terms in "Male to Male" and "Female to Female" jealous relations, we have quite distinctive behaviours and differences between them. And if a male was treated the way jealous, petty and vindicative females treat eachother, he would feel quite crapped on and overrun. And the same goes in case men treat a woman the way they do between eachother in a jealously competitive environment.

This doesn't mean that either is acceptable. It just means that the behaviour sucks on all fronts, and trying to gloss over the "male to female" part as "patriarchy" will not at any point even attempt to fix the problem in our society.

So yes, it smells of truth, and it's a stinking rot.
