A concrete example from yesterday. I was at the doctor and a nurse was taking over the rest of the treatment. When she came in she blurted out "ohh what a good-looking young man, it will be nice to treat you" and then added a "mmm" kind of under her breath. Creepy. This is not an uncommon occurrence, neither from strangers like this nurse nor from people I know like co-workers. Older women in my team will grab my arm when standing next to me talking and one put her hand on my leg when sitting. I find this behavior very uncomfortable and I feel like it's way more accepted and often laughed off among most people, compared to the same being done to young women. I realize the balance of power is not the same, but I find it odd how accepted it is to e.g. call a young guy hot in a professional setting and no one bats an eye. When I've told others about this I've been told to "be a man" and "just accept the compliment" or that I'm humble bragging. Any other guys experiencing this a lot? How do you handle it?
