Some of the responses to this tweet .... holy crap. One "men's rights/red pill" nutcase, asked "Is it really that hard to understand the difference between wanted/unwanted advances from two consenting adults?", responded "The very real risk of capital and personal loss is too high for men to even attempt to understand it"

Uh, no, dude. Not understanding or trying to understand the concept of consent is what gets men into trouble. This sounds like the type of man who thinks he's making a brilliant gotcha "feminists are evil" point when he notices that "the woman's opinion" is literally the ONLY thing separating sex from rape (which, of course, indicates that women have waaaaaay too much power in our society).

But it’s the combo of harassing women and Roosh literally crying into the camera about not having babies that makes this so great.

I never knew the term thot. Familiar with the discussion around it.

So, bottom line, haha nice shem.

I suspect the problem is they aren't loose enough with them, personally.

But it's always ironic that these guys cry "replacement" and "muh birthrates" and yet do this.

Well, I recognize those comments from years past, too. I assume they were from the original share.

But of course that still wasn't enough for the misogynistic fuckwits who apparently take massive umbrage upon learning women don't actually like being sexually harassed.

I genuinely cannot understand such a mindset. It's like, when I'm reading blogs or websites from black Americans on the theme "This-here racism sure is getting us down," I don't get angry over the fact that they don't start out by saying "First, let us praise the GOOD white people, such as Jennifer, who are NOT racist and do NOT make excuses for those who are." I can't even realistically imagine myself responding thusly.

"But what about when the guys are all tapped out?"
For my study, I interviewed a racially diverse collection of college men who had reported having unwanted sex with a woman. (In total, I interviewed 39 people – a standard number for a sociological study of this nature.)

It’s important to clarify the difference between “unwanted sex” and “assault.” With sex that’s unwanted (but not assault), a person makes a choice to have sex even though they could have stopped it. In contrast, with sexual assault or rape, the sex is both unwanted and forced. In other words, all sexual assault is unwanted sex, but not all unwanted sex is sexual assault.

The men that I interviewed felt they could have stopped the encounter, but didn’t for various reasons. These men were reluctant to call their experiences sexual assault, and were more comfortable with terms such as “unwanted” and “nonconsensual.”

Given the prevalence of partying and sexual experimentation on college campuses, I initially suspected most of these experiences happened after a night of binge drinking.

But only 8 of the 39 men reported being drunk when they had unwanted sex; instead, most of the scenarios ended up being pretty ordinary. Some said they didn’t want to have sex because they didn’t feel a connection. Others were hesitant because they were tired, there was no condom or they wanted to do something physical other than intercourse.
...
There was little talk of uncontrollable biological urges, or powerful female seductresses. Instead, many described having unwanted sex in order to project an image and to take advantage of a sexual opportunity. They worried that saying “no” to sex might be strange, immature, offensive or emasculating. A looming fear was ridicule, and they didn’t want to be talked about as the kind of man who rejects sex with an attractive woman, lest others might see them as a “virgin,” an “idiot” or someone who’s “gay.”

That right there just means the problem is widespread, not specific to your study.
