Cricket fans honking at women accused of being sexist and misogynist:

A group of male cricket fans calling themselves the Hooter Police have come under fire for their sexist behaviour at the Basin Reserve on Monday.

The men, who wore white T-shirts with the words "Hooter Police 2016 Reunion", along with fake police helmets, were accused of honking at passing women during the Black Caps v Pakistan one-day international.

How to talk to young people about sexual ethics:

"Pick-up artists" from US company Real Social Dynamics (RSD) recently cancelled a planned New Zealand eventafter they were back in Australia to run a series of seminars for men on how to seduce women.

During a 2014 Australian visit, RSD "coach" Julien Blanc was driven from the country after a public outcry that his seminars promote violence against women. The new seminars triggered a similar response.

RSD encourages the overt use of violence, such as choking, as a method for "picking up" women. Other strategies include wearing women down through repeated requests for sex, and "negging", where men subtly insult women to undermine their confidence in an attempt to make them more likely to submit to sex.
