>>104906>Lmao you're calling me an asshole
Yes, because you act as if English Second Language speakers accidentally not realizing the difference between molesting and harassing was worse than intentionally treating said ESL speakers as second-class citizens of sorts. Try learning a second language and being in a community that exclusively speaks that language and see how "easy" it is not to make mistakes, asshole.>random constructed idea
Believe it or not, ESL users post in every thread on this site. They do not need to publicly announce that English is their second language every time they enter a thread. A small language barrier and misinterpretations may be present at all times, resulting in misunderstandings on both sides. And you may not even realize it.>somehow the above posts are excusable
I was just commenting on the fact that it's true that "harassment", "assault" and "molestation" are in fact interchangeable in some languages and that this definitely affects how people who speak those languages natively interpret those three English terms.
Also, the "above posts" you're referring to aren't actually that terrible. While you automatically assumed that the mechanic had the worst intentions, that anon probably assumed that he had the best intentions. She clearly did not mean to make OP feel bad about her own feelings, and even asked for more information about the mechanic's comment to know if it was intentional sexual harassment or if the guy had just tried to be polite.
Like yeah I would also love to not have to wear a bra every time I'm not home with my mom and sister, I would also love it if female breasts were seen as natural as a male chest, and I would love for female nipples to stop being much more sexualized than male ones. But since that ain't close to happening, there's nothing wrong about a man politely trying to tell a woman that her nipples can be seen. However, we don't know yet if that's what happened, or if the man was being a creepy and disgusting fuck and intentionally made OP uncomfortable.
