To the Editor:
I have taught courses about violence against women, sexual harassment, stalking, sexual assault, rape, and murder at Temple University School of Law for over 25 years.
Women may not be interested in men for many reasons; not just because they are in committed relationships, but also because the men in question might be jerks.
Any man who listens to “locker room talk” – shorthand for sexual disparagement of women – without objecting is equally culpable. He is a jerk who is part of the problem, not part of the solution.
We will only solve the problem of sexual inequality if both women and men speak up.
