Since the Harvey Weinstein revelations, there has been a lot of talk about sexual harassment. All the reading I’ve done has defined this extremely broadly. I’m not sure at what point an off hand comment is harassment. I do know that some people are not bothered by some behavior while some people are extremely bothered. I certainly think women have a different set of experiences than men (although I am pretty certain I did not get a promotion at a job I had because I was not ‘friendly’ enough to another gay man who was my superior). I guess what I want to accomplish with this thread is to gather opinions on where people think that line is. I really don’t think a persons life should be destroyed by an off handed comment, but I also think that people should have consequences for continued bad behavior.
I haven’t seen this happen—it seems to be always a pattern, not one comment.
But one could simply say:
No sex talk (jokes, assessment one someone’s hotness, etc)
No physical contact (except handshakes)
Wherever she says it is.
With Bill Clinton it’s when it lands on her dress !!!
That wasn’t harassment.
That according to Bill, Hillary and the media was 2 consenting adults.
Oh , I forgot the rules don’t apply to the above the law Clinton’s !
