Excellent points which seem to get lost in the hysteria. Though admittedly even the lines between ‘horseplay’ and ‘assault’ can occasionally become ‘blurred’.

BTW, am I the only one who finds it odd that there aren’t any men coming forward with similar tales of female ‘impropriety’… or is it simply assumed that all women are either ‘saints’ or ‘victims’, while all men are potential ‘perps’? My own sense is it also has a lot to do with the cultural ‘roles’ we’re each assigned in the Mating Game, where men are supposed to be the ‘aggressors’, and then women get to ‘pick’… along with vastly different consequences for any ‘excesses’ in either area.
