"NTA I bet your girlfriend wouldn't be laughing if one of her girlfriends offered to f**k you or asked you about your penis. Then it would be 'oh my God my friend is flirting with my boyfriend!' followed by insecurity. Regardless, he was asked to stop and carried on. That's sexual harassment, end of discussion. People would be outraged if he behaved that way with a woman, that shouldn't change because he's doing it to a man." 💥
