Survey asks men if they have sexually harassed in the past year.

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/12/28/upshot/sexual-harassment-survey-600-men.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=photo-spot-regionŽion=top-news&WT.nav=top-news&_r=0


Looks like about one in three men admits to having engaged in some kind of harassing behavior though most of those don't see themselves as harassers. I think we can be reasonably certain that there are many who do it and don't admit to it.

The resentment factor


Men who worked in the food and beverage industry and in blue-collar jobs, as well as those who were white or Republicans, were more likely to acknowledge harassing behavior. So were those who described a feeling of resentment, saying that they were unappreciated by coworkers or superiors or that colleagues received undeserved promotions.


Men with graduate degrees or strong disapproval of President Trump reported lower rates of harassing colleagues.

1. Key words: most of those don't see themselves as harassers

in many of these discussions, some men are having a hard time seeing what they do as harassment. There's an element of education happening which I think is a very good thing.
