Eat Out to Help Out endangered countless more people than all the protests put together but I don't remember Johnny Law raiding Nando's.

It's always amazed me how many excuses people use when it comes to Michael Jackson. His house is a millionaires nonce cave. Everything from WrestleFest in the arcade room to the flying Scotsman in the

Obvious troll is obvious.    Regarding that curfew thing, it’s switching the narrative. Since forever, it’s always been about what women and girls can do to prevent getting attacked and not wha

I remember watching that as it went down.  It was on the original Paramount Channel.  On the show they had a sort of darts match.  Walliams threw the 3 darts, and Dominic went to retrieve them as Walliams threw another one. I honestly thought he was going to Twat him.

the full clip of that segment is cringe worthy. Imagine pushing for one of your mates to appear on your show and they do that. Absolute Bellends 

Diamond pacing, waiting to go off air looks ready to chin him.

So, maybe not celebrity, but a second harrassment/assault thread seems like too depressing an idea.

There has been some #NotAllMen talk, especially in the media, in the wake of the Sarah Everard story (if you've missed it, a woman in Clapham who was out at 9.30pm and went missing - a policeman has been arrested under suspicion of kidnap, and the team investigating it have announced they've found human remains in a wood in Kent). 

A lot of women have found this particularly upsetting, and a lot are discussing the harrassment/assault they've undergone. Some conversations are about how men can better make women feel safe when out and about (crossing road, being on phone, etc etc). And there are a lot of calls for men to step up and be part of the conversation as well. Some are talking about that, some are responding with 'Not ALL men'.

So, where are you falling on this? Do you think you can talk about it with family/friends? Do you feel comfortable pushing back on people when they're being weird about women?

I've been having an interesting conversion with a male friend about it since last night. I said that we need to step back and listen more, while he thinks we should be actively pushing to do more about it. I guess the ideal "solution" would be a middle ground between the two. I guess it depends on experiences really. I personally fall on the side where a lot of my female friends feel like people don't take them seriously and don't listen to them and are more than happy to just brush stuff off with a "you'll be fine" or whatever, when really it's not just one specific incident but a general feeling they have throughout their entire life.

I haven't personally come across too many men that have acted like that - I don't go out much, I don't drink and I consider myself lucky that I've not really been with any friends who have ever actively acted like that. So I don't feel like I've had too many opportunities to 'step up' or whatever you'd want to call it. Would I feel comfortable doing so if I was out and saw that behaviour? Comfortable would be the wrong word but I wouldn't want to sit back and watch it happen either.

A lot of this stuff does happen behind closed doors though. Or online, through DMs etc. And the 'not all men' stuff certainly doesn't help, because that selfish attitude of 'well I must make sure no one thinks badly of me!' is completely oblivious to the conversations that need to be had. It's not about defending yourself. It's about listening to the situations that have happened and acknowledging the men that have acted badly etc.

I'm certainly aware that if I'm out at night and there's a woman alone and it's dark, I definitely want to keep my distance or cross the road etc because I can only imagine what that situation feels like. Hell, I feel uncomfortable myself out and about at night, so I can only imagine how difficult it is for them. And I guess that's the thing - it's impossible for us to put ourselves in that position and truly understand it, but it's imperative that at the least we acknowledge it and raise awareness.
