A lot of men accused of sexual harassment have, in their defence, said they don’t remember. Women remember. Men don’t. For them, there seems to be no concept of mind, body, and soul when they are with a woman. There is just the concept of body. They only etch the experience in terms of woman’s body, and don’t recognise her as a full person or acknowledge her dignity.
