There but for the grace of God goes every woman you have ever known.
Read this. Men in car pull up to women on street and ask for phone number. Women refuse. men shoot women. Goes nicely with the whole porn/degradation theme we have running in another post. I think you get to the place where men feel like this is OK in baby steps. One fo the first baby steps is thinking of women as less than fully human.
And people think women are paranoid about street harassment.
