Thank you, Aota. You just gave me some valuable insight into the "train groping" situation.Originally posted by Aota Bass
Having studied in India, I have to share my take on the sexual harassment issue. In India, women wear skirts. Not pants/shorts. Only women in Bollywood films wear form-fitting pants or short skirts. Basically the only women who wear this clothing on the street are prostitutes or uninformed tourists, and this perception is enhanced if the women are travelling unaccompanied by a male. While I do not condone treating anyone, man or woman, as a sex object, there needs to be some degree of cultural relativity.
Different country, different cultural patterns. I wonder how well the teams were protected overall and how much they got to learn about the different countries ahead of time. Not that Tian and Jaree have displayed much decorum but they're entertaining as hell.
