According to recent reports, rape cases have gone up in recent times even resulting to the Lost of lives of some victims.
Recall that we recently reported some rape cases of which some suspects have been apprehended by the Nigerian Police Force, while some are still at large.
The recent cases of rape have brought many people to the conclusion that Cases of sexual harassment and rape should be handled equally.
But a recent occurrence has made some people t call out a lady who allegedly harassed an old man sexually. An internet users said: “we shouldn’t favour a gender over another. Men also fall victim of sexual harassment and rape but often times, the severity of this offence is being downplayed especially when the offender is a woman.”
“The public can easily ignore the case of a man who is or has been sexually harassed by a lady, but will call for the arrest of a man who they see harassing a lady”
This reaction came in following a video which was shared online showing a lady buying fruits and pressing her body on an elderly man’s body.
The video captures an elderly man in front of a fruit vendor’s shop trying to buy some fruits, and then this curvy looking lady dressed indecently approached the same fruit shop, pretending to want to buy some fruits also.
She intentionally rubs her bust over the man’s back in a sexual manner, and this made the man uncomfortable, so he forced his way out to an open space to give room for the lady thinking she genuinely wanted to buy some fruits
But as soon as she noticed this, she intentionally let a fruit down and pretended like she was picking it up, now she was wiggling her bum in that position making full contact with the man who still moved back in surprise.
All the while, people were passing by and none cautioned the lady but they even laughed as though her offensive act was a good thing.
If reverse was the case, am sure the old man would have been beating and arrested, imagine if his family See’s such a video of their dad, or husband being harassed this way, how will they feel?
The video which has now gone viral on the internet has sparked a lot of mixed Reactions, as some internet users refer to the video as just a comedy while some called it sexual harassment, some people even called for the lady to be arrested.
In your own opinion, can we refer to this as sexual harassment? Should the lady be charged for her action?
