No, because if that is what the poster was referencing, "going on a tear" was actually saying "guys, don't do that", with the context being: sexual propositioning a stranger in an enclosed space in a foreign country at 4 AM after having just listened to the person you're propositioning give a presentation that included discussion on how the constant sexual propositions she received at these conferences made her uncomfortable.
THAT in turn led to her receiving a never-ending wave of abuse, including rape and death threats, and including having one of the most prominent male voices in the movement insultingly state that women in the west shouldn't complain about sexism because women in Islamic countries have it a lot worse.
It was after all THAT, that she, quite rightly, started going on a tear.
I really wonder if all that "sexual harassment" is really harassment. Suppose I was single and I asked a co-worker out, is that wrong. Do I have to wait until we both get home, to search out her phone number and call her from home?
Women put on lipstick, get hair and nails done, put jewelery in their earlobes and navel cavity, apply some perfume, and wear low cut tops to highlight the valley between, and wear up-lifting bras for one reason -- to feel feminine, to catch the eyes of males, to receive complements and perhaps, because it is the mode. So, if you advertise your femininity, and you receive messages that hurt your feelings, is it any wonder why? My opinion is that it is only harassment if there was an invitation or insinuation for physical contact, or if a person told a second person, "I'd like to go all the way with her", while she overhears it.
Some women like to feel sexy, and recognize what it is, and others, interpret sexually based remarks the wrong way. Again, no to touch, no harm to responding to "sexy" with politeness, but not crudeness.
