Do you agree with Liam Neeson about the #metoo movement being a witch Hunt on all men? I sort of agree I think that sexual harassment is absolutely dreadful. however, they should really look into cases of sexual harassment before even jumping to a conclusion. and we really need to define sexual harassment, just a petite flirt, is that sexual harassment?
Do you support the me too movement? No. in many cases it attempts to vilify people without due process. It is an ignorant attempt to circumvent the concept of "innocent until proven guilty" and even more ignorantly takes the position that the more people alleging something, the more proof that one is guilty. But interestingly enough, there has been one recent and interesting change in Sexual Harassment law: It used to be sexual harassment meant whatever was offensive to the victim. Which would leave organizations open to all sorts of frivolous lawsuits, (I could dream up millions of lawsuits, like lawsuits over shoelaces, or a lawsuit because someone wears an ordinary wrist watch, or ordinary glasses etc etc.) Now it is whatever is offensive to the victim, within the context of reasonableness (you can't say wearing an ordinary wrist watch is sexual harassment). Additionally, over the years since 1991 and the Anita Hill controversy women are having less fun at work. That's right women are having less fun, because women's improper behavior (far more than men's improper behavior) have changed due to sexual harassment law.
Why are there so much sexual harassment in the workplace? There isn't. The problem is that we are considering things that are NOT sexual harassment as sexual harassment. The TRUE definition of sexual harassment is for a person with AUTHORITY over another at work to PRESSURE a subordinate into doing SEXUAL FAVORS (that is, having sex or doing sexual things) in order to avoid a reprisal, usually related to their employment, compensation, duties, etc. Under that definition, sexual harassment is extremely rare. However, we started going down a slippery slope. We went from that very clear and narrow definition, to include virtually anything now. Nowadays, just saying to someone that you like the way they styled their hair, or their clothes, or their makeup, or any simple compliment can be twisted into "sexual harassment". A simple pat on the shoulder can be construed as "inappropriate touching". What this will actually accomplish is to turn the workplace into something more stressful. It will create distrust of women, since any male will see them as a potential threat. Men will be less willing to work with women. I fear this will reduce willingness to work with us.
What should I do because I feel so guilty..? They needed to learn this lesson. When they are old enough to be in the workforce this sort of talk in a workplace can get them fired for sexual harassment, and in many places it is illegal. In my country sexual harassment law applies to educational institutions as well as to the workplace, and male pupils can be charged with sexual harassment once they are over the age of sixteen.
Is it sexual harrassment if I extended my hand for handshake but my date kissed me on cheek? Your pretence of not understanding what sexual harassment is disturbing. Either you're in fact some idiot or you're willing to pretend to be an idiot in order to diminish any actual discussion about sexual harassment, because you're likely the type of guy who'd be a sexual harasser.
The Grammy's had Hillary pre-record her bit. Is that because Granny Clinton couldn't stay up late enough to do it live? Yeah, the ones carrying the banner of Anti-Sexual harassment had as their special guest one of the biggest enablers of sexual harassment ever reading a book by a guy who smeared a successful woman insinuating that she slept her way to the top with no evidence and who shielded a sexual harasser from her campaign. And yet, we're supposed to take these virtue signaling idiots seriously lol
