I recently came across a really interesting French prank video (and yeah I spend a lot of time watching French prank videos. lol jk). Two men go up and down the escalator, stroking mens hands as they go by. Some men laugh it off, or seem very confused. But the large majority are angry, and aggressive. I brought this to my friend's attention, and it really brought up an interesting conversation.
How would this look in other countries? How would it look if it was a woman instead?
Watch the video and tell me what you think.
I'm not sure what they are saying to the others (translate @AlloBaber?) but it seemed mostly mean.
Let's get something straight: touching people in public is not ok. Touching someone without their consent is not ok. But that being said, it happens all the time.
If this had been the same in the U.S. I think a lot of men would've acted the same? Agreesive, angry, threatening?
If it had been a woman doing the same thing, (like the last scene in the video), the man would not feel threatened or upset?
How do you think you would react if someone did this to you?
