Any guys over here that I’ve been sexually harassed by female coworkers? Overt flirting counts (eg. calling you babe, baby, touching your arm)

    Since when was touching someone's arm part of harassment, unless it was explicitly stated not to

      Says the female side? I find #metoo very one sided. A guy colleague walks over to you (a guy), and puts his hand on your left shoulder for a brief second to get through the crowd around you. Unwanted touch! Ask a guy coworker this would be “okay”, shrugged. Ask a female coworker this could be “weird” and uncomfortable. People’s perception and self awareness are very different by gender. A female coworker to a male coworker would be a mixed signal.

      I got touched on the arm yesterday. By a very sweaty palm. Weird and gross. If you’re in doubt, go with a two finger tap. Never grab someone with sweaty grabbers.

    My young female manager would comment on my strong physique, feel my biceps/arms/shoulders, flirt a bit. Happened maybe a total of 5 times in her office?

    I was a bit uncomfortable, but I didn’t have a problem with it. I come from a culture that’s much less sexually repressed than US, so I was more upset it didn’t lead to something more than what had happened 🤷‍♂️

      Right. Still wouldn’t want to risk with an office romance. Well, you did a great job!

    You have to consider female nature. They seek. Meaning they are going to focus their sex on finding a better life, better mate, sexier male and so on. Just harassing guys is not going to be their MO unless very mean, old and bitter. There are women out there who will want to see men suffer. They use sexual harassment as a weapon, not as a way to seek out sex like a guy.

    A lot of older women called me honey. But I was sweet to them and they were sweet to me too. “Honey, I can change the calendar for you!”

    At ex workplace.

      OP
      We define harassment if we feel uncomfortable. If a female colleague touches you on the arm and you think it’s harassment, then it’s harassment. The other way around is almost always true.

    Had my female boss put her hand on my back and slide it down until it was inside my jeans when leaning on a high table at a company function. I froze because I was talking to other colleagues.

    Had a female manager come on to me, ask me to dinner. I went once thinking maybe a good chance to get face time with my boss & pitch some ideas. She was not interested in talking work but was very flirty & touchy, tried to get me drunk, when that failed she got drunk & made me drive her home. She kept grabbing my thigh & brushing my junk in the car. She was fairly good looking, but was kind of an idiot at work & was an asshole to cover it up; so I just wasn’t interested in her (not to forget she was drunk & had power over me).

    I turned down future requests & made it clear I wasn’t interested. I was rather quickly & unceremoniously fired. Despite it breaking the company’s protocol & process. I went to a lawyer, but even with explicit emails as evidence, the female judge we got to try to bring a suit to threw it out saying men can’t be harassed. By then I had a new job & just dropped it. She’s since raised through the ranks even higher.
