So I feel like I need to make an addendum to my last post.
I talked to another fellow in my PM group, and he said that he just did not believe that my student’s intention was sexual because of his age. And I certainly agree. I don’t think my student had sexual intentions. I think he had intentions to either disrespect me with a) what he knew was an inappropriate thing you might say to a woman you don’t respect, or b) what he might have thought was a way to compliment a woman.
And besides, that’s not what this was all about. It’s not about sex. It’s about power.
Men don’t just catcall, or grope, or do a lot of awful things just because they necessarily sexually desire that woman.
They do things because they can.
That is what’s wrong.
