Hotel Coolgadie

From Wiki 4 Men

Hotel Coolgardie is a documentary focussing on two young women from Finland who take up a three month assignment as barmaids in an outback Australian pub. Media attention on the documentary discussed negative behaviour by the hotel's patrons and often talked about fragile masculinity, toxic masculinity and rape culture.[1][2][3]

With the possible exception of one incident close to the start of the documentary none of the women were apparently touched without their consent. This contrasts with an older woman that openly and repeatedly groped a young man who was clearly not consenting. While doing this the older woman talks constantly about how she wanted a root. This incident was completely glossed over by mainstream media discussions about the documentary and very clearly demonstrates the double standard that men are subjected to in situations like this.
