How do we solve #MeToo

Undisclosed / Eng Libertino

Even though I'm a man, I was once groped by a friend of mine. I didn't know he was gay. He sneaked up behind me like he was hugging me, then full on grabbed my cock. I was so freaked out. It's nothing compared to many other stories, but it's something.

Anyway, how does one actually solve this? A sexually frustrated person is likely to do desperate things, just like my scared gay friend was. They are especially likely to do this if they don't expect any consequences, either immediately (from their subject) or in the future (prison, termination, etc.). What to do? What to do? What to do?

    A girl grabbed my balls as she passed me in a club just a few weeks ago and when I turned to see who it was she winked and smiled.

    I didn’t find it attractive at all so I just ignored it.

      That's ridiculous. I am sorry this happened to you. I didn't know girls also do this to guys.

      Yeah you should have talked to her. Because you didn't, she probably assumed it was ok and may do it with another guy tomorrow.

      Yeah. Let the trash be trash. Don't engage. Slap her, if needed.

    What if your device was able to show your personal bubble was breached without your consent. Consent could be given through an app. Just a thought

      Not to mention who wants a record of everyone they've had sex with on the blockchain? Not to mention consent can't be revoked in this model

      Well that’s a technical problem. We could make it anonymous unless you want to later announce a proof.

      I believe monero has a similar concept where nobody knows your transaction history unless you want to retroactively prove you made a specific transfer of a specific amount to a specific person on a specific date.

      You then of course have the “problem” of your ex being able to publish these records, but at the same time that is sort of the point of the thing.

    Obviously you grope him back. It’s called an eye for an eye. Biblical.

      In this case, the world will be left with busted balls.

    Jiu-Jitsu. On a more serious note, the #Metoo moments have the same thread - abuse of power. If you want to fight off random rapists in the dark corners - it is a lot easier problem than asking to fuck off your boss, boyfriend/girlfriend, parent, as they always have that power to twist the facts, ruin career and turn any accusations against the victim.

    What you do is the same as with any other social issue - gather all the courage and expose it, talk about it openly, bring it up as a problem in random conversations. Take it out of the anonymous internet channels and talk to your male and female coworkers about it. Let people around you know that you are not Ok with anyone abusing their power. It is a generic prescription.

    If it was a friend, did you try talking to him about how uncomfortable it made you?

      He wasn't a very good friend. I told him I felt harrassed and while I wasn't sure if he was out or not (pretty sure he wasn't he always talked about girls), I would tell people he harrassed me if he ever tried to do it again. This was in college. So I guess I blackmailed him a little because I was scared. Wow, I'm a badass.

      Well there you go. You took the right approach. I don't think you can stop #metoo moments only approach them better. If it makes you feel better, I've had it happen to me too, although as a kid.

    Did he have the common courtesy to finish you off?

    First, stop the false accusations.

    When cops with body cameras are falsely accused, normal citizens don’t have much self defense.
