A new survey, aiming to establish what people believe constitutes sexual harassment in a number of European countries, has unearthed some baffling results.
The YouGov survey interviewed 8,490 men and women from Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Norway, and Sweden.
The survey posed a number of questions to respondents in an attempt to discover what constitutes sexual harassment. Some answers to the questions were expected, however, some could be seen as worrisome.
According to the survey, four out of five Britons (82 percent) believed dancing with a woman at a party or in a club could be considered sexual harassment. 73 percent of respondents from Sweden and Norway, agreed. 71 percent of the French respondents also believed dancing was sexual harassment but only 50 percent of Germans and 53 percent of respondents from Finland thought it was going too far.
The largest difference was found in humor. Only one in six (17 percent) of Danes thought that telling a woman a sexual joke equated to sexual harassment. 35 percent of Swedes and 38 percent of Germans agreed.
69 percent of the British respondents thought sexual jokes constitute sexual harassment. 67 percent of Finnish respondents agreed with the prudish belief.
According to the survey, the respondents would be more outraged if a man told a sexual joke to a woman than if the man stared at her breasts.
50 percent of respondents from the UK believed staring at a woman’s breasts equated to sexual harassment. 51 percent of the French and 47 percent of the Finnish respondents agreed. Only 29 percent of Germans believed it to be sexual harassment.
Perhaps the migrants are integrating better than first assumed.
Taking an up-skirt picture, grabbing a woman’s behind and men exposing themselves are all sexually harassing actions according to the survey.
Nearly all of the Europeans polled agreed that winking at women was fine, except for the French. 23 percent of French respondents believed winking was also sexual harassment.
Considering the information, it is no surprise the Sexodus is happening. Porn doesn’t sue.
