Granted, there are some times when it exists, especially the egregious quid pro quo, the aggressive types, or won’t take no for an answer types. A straight male friend of mine was fired for not having sex with his gay boss! As an undergrad, I got to watch my married male professors parading their latest coed conquests in front of class, and I thought it was disgusting.
But I’m convinced that these diabolical feminists just want to eliminate any and all sexual behavior period from the workplace and all educational institutions.
This is a prime example of Female Rule run amok and gone insane. Most women won’t push very hard for these mad rules to be put in place, but once they are in place, most women (women being followers and not leaders) will just go along with the Puritanical project.
I lived through the whole 1970’s and early 1980’s with tons of sexual stuff going on in the workplace or halls of education. There was very little fuss about any of it.
There are way too many love-shy men as it is. Sexual harassment is a dagger to the hearts of love-shy men.
One wonders what the boundaries of this sexual harassment crap are. The feminist idiots have already walled off the entire workplace and halls of education from anything hinting of sex, so what’s to stop them from stopping there? Why not make it civilly actionable outside class and work? Like, at the coffee shop, the doctors’ office, driving down the road, the grocery store, the insurance office, the bank, the sidewalk, the gas station, the apartment complex? I mean, why stop at work or class?
Our females, these silly dames, are fragile little girl-children in women’s bodies, and they just go to pieces every time a man lays his evil lecherous eyes on them. We need to protect them, these double X perpetual infants!
Lunatic Lady Raine actually wants to make illegal any and all sexual attention men display towards women outside of designed pick-up spots. She would wall off certain places in society as designated pick-up spots and make illegal any and all male sexual attention towards women outside those meat markets.
All this so these poor jellyfish-like damsels can be spared the soul-dissolving leers and dagger-like suggestive comments of perpetually-erect males. Most women would probably say, “Oh, that’s crazy!”
But the problem is that in their hearts, this is what they want. To be free from men’s evil attentions, to carry on with their desultory shopping or whatever bullshit they fill their hours with.
Once the loons put this nutty project in, most women would line up behind it. Get out the knee boots and the leather whip and round up the 20% or so mangina White Knight males, and you’re in like Flynn, it’s set in rock and there’s no going back.
This is one thing I find scary about women. Projects laughed off as ridiculous, once implemented by the Sisterhood, will see women lining up with their gender when the cards are down.
Women are emotional thinkers, not logical thinkers. Their thoughts are like wind chimes or flags in the wind, blowing this way or that. That can be easily brushed off by the logical male mind, but once the Women implement a “pro-woman” position, it’s unlikely the rest of the Followers will overturn it, if that means going over to the Male Enemy.
This is already starting to happen. Workers at a coffee shop in Oregon tried to ban a friend of mine for “looking at the waitresses.” What the Hell? Considering that most of them were 18-22 year old cuties, how exactly was he supposed to react. So you can see the lunatic sexual harassment BS is already creeping outside of work and school into ordinary public space.
I remember once I worked at an office. Some guy asked out a chick. Much of the office, including most of the silly females, were up in arms over this affront for weeks afterwards. Mostly the guys didn’t care, but the women were outraged. The guy had reason to do so, but he was pretty weird, so in Female World that means he didn’t get to ask out any chicks, ever, in his lifetime. The guy said Fuck You to that proclamation, and all Hell broke loose. He asked her out! What an outrage! Oh boo-fuckin-hoo!
I felt sorry for the guy. I figured he hadn’t been laid in months, or maybe years. Who can blame a guy? He got called in on sexual harassment for asking a chick out, a co-worker at that. He asked her once, she didn’t respond either yes or no, just gave him a weird look, and the guy dropped it. This is sexual harassment? Huh?
Secondary schools have now implemented policies banning any and all physical contact between students of either gender, presumably even boyfriends and girlfriends. This was too much even for the girl students, who being kids still have some sense about their primal urges. The girls complained that they liked to hug their female friends and the new policy banned that.
A famous sexual harassment case outlined by Daphne Patai in her luminous Heterophobia: Sexual Harassment and the Future of Feminism involved a male and female graduate student.
The male sent the female an email saying various things, including how much he valued her friendship. Then he said that he had been sexually abused in the past and was now impotent as a result. He requested her physical assistance (LOL) in overcoming his sexual dysfunction. The woman sent him an email back, saying thanks but no thanks. He mailed back, said thank you very much, I still value our friendship anyway.
She then learned that he send identical letters to several other students that they both worked with (LOL). This infuriated her and it was this, not the approach itself, that set off the idiot sexual harassment suit.
Where does this crap end anyway?
I like Alpha Unit’s take. She says that all, most or many male-female interactions, especially involving attractive people, are going to be somewhat sexually charged, and this is just the normal state of affairs. Well of course. We are mammals after all, no?
