Totally agree - The "Political Correctness" Police have screwed up the World in the wrong way to the point of confusion.

Rape & Violence are Crimes. No questions there (and that applies to both Male & Female victims)

Comments akin to flattery are nowadays either received well, or suddenly become a potential crime !?!

Casual touches upon non-sexual areas of the body, may be unwelcome, but shouldn't be deemed a crime (if done in the casual sense) - they may be unwelcomed and distastefully abhorrent, but don't warrant legal action.... my Indian coworkers would be quivering in their socks were I to hold the opposite view - but I recognise it as a Cultural difference, and consciously avoid such a situation.

To their Credit - If the French, who are portrayed as going around kissing each other on the cheeks as a form of greeting, don't do the same here in Japan, then surely it's possible for other "Educated" Foreign Nationals to be more sensitive to others when overseas from their home-land. Perhaps what's required is more of a Social Stigma approach rather than using the Courts - Social Embarrassment is often a quick way to correction of attitude.
