Don't blame women when men behave badly

Don't blame women for sexual misconduct by men.

My personal thanks to Andy Goldfinger (“Men are wild animals,” Jan. 11) for an out-of-date view on how to control men: blame women for the problem. Women don't want men not to have lustful thoughts, they just want them not to spontaneously act on them (like those who seem to think it's their right to "grab them by the” p-word). Has any woman suggested that men poke out their eyes so they can't see those of us who do not wear a hijab and loose-fitting garments? I think not.

I, too, am "past 70" and never dressed provocatively. However, I have been groped, pinched and propositioned by male co-workers, strange men in elevators, and men in public transport vehicles. Being a "wild animal" who can't resist sexy clothing is no excuse for them — or Mr. Goldfinger. He should get with the program and come into the 21st century with the rest of us. His daughters and nieces will thank him.
