If you hold up two fingers in the UK and someone tells you it is offensive, you stop doing it.

Despite the numerous people who try to educate the guys who "don't get it", they continue their immature ways. I'm not going to give them a free pass.

Wouldn't this be more analogous to people from the UK coming into a typically US-centric area and complaining about US people holding up two fingers?

I agree that it's wrong, but change will probably be slow...


It's like the US trying to attract more UK people by telling them not to be offended by rude gestures, instead of stopping.

I don't think or have the mindset that women are living in some sort of separate culture from us or there are stark differences between us. It's the trolls, misogynists, etc that treat them differently only because they are women.
