For Women: Poll on Sexual Harassment, Abuse, Assault

Given the current climate on this issue, I thought I'd create a poll for us to complete.
Let's see what the results are. Women only on this one. There should be a separate poll for
men.

How many of these have happened to you?

26 votes, 0 passes | Time left: Unlimited
Sexual harassment on the street or workplace
6 (23%)
Sexual abuse/assault by family member or trusted member of community (teacher, clergy, etc.)
1 (4%)
Sexual assault or rape by stranger
0 (0%)
Violent sexual assault or rape including weapon
0 (0%)
Physical, sexual or emotional abuse by spouse
0 (0%)
Two of the above
13 (50%)
Three of the above
2 (8%)
Four of the above
2 (8%)
All of the above
1 (4%)
None of the above
1 (4%)

1. Can men overcome their primitive side to become more civilized?

I know men are hard wired to procreate with as many women as possible, Darwinism in action.
Can they overcome that to respect women?

2. Women are hardwired to procreate, too

I think if history classes included the study of matriarchies prior to 3500 BC we would understand this
all much differently.

4. Absolutely. We are all hard wired for survival of the species.

Men seem to be getting into more trouble with it lately then women.

I think it would be fascinating to look at matriarchal societies and see what we can learn good or bad.

Time to get the gender conflicts sorted out.

3. Yes.

There's very little that we're actually "hardwired" to do, as opposed to having tendencies.

You might be interested in some of the works of primatologist Frans deWaal.

Also check out "baboon troop changes its culture" on Google.

Primates are behaviorally flexible, humans likely even more than others.

5. I agree, I think we can change for the better. We must if we wish to become an advanced civilization

Thanks for the references, will take a look.

6. One thing not in your poll

Sexual abuse by a classmate.

When I was 11, a class mate did something that Donald Trump made famous years later.

7. You may want to think about the fact that this poll shows usernames of who answered and how

 

And at least make people aware responses are not anonymous.
