was talking to a friend and she told me she left her job because of (hidden and indirect) harassment. She is attractive and has experienced it at almost every company she has worked at .

    Men experience sexual harassment too.
    Due to brainwashing by SJWs, women are more likely to interpret everyday friction as gender discrimination.

      What kind of sexual harassment do men suffer?
      Dec 5, 2019
  • People seem to forget that sexual harassment also happens to women from other women. I've been told so many times that I would do better/get taken more seriously if i wore prettier clothes or did my hair/makeup.... by other women! >:(

    Oh yes. I worked for a company where I was told how fuckable I was based on the heels I wore. I sat facing a window and a particular man liked to corner me in the break room to tell me he wondered what people on the other side of the window saw when I sat with my legs uncrossed.

    Bonus for the men: had a female manager who put press on nails on men during "team bonding" activities to make them squirm. She delighted in this.

    This was a company that made an Enterprise product most of us have to use on one time or another. They got bought by a three letter entity a while ago.

    I started to think that the range of what's considered a sexual harassment varies by person.
    The most recent example is the comment above. I wouldn't consider someone's comment like that to be specifically a sexual harassment. Somewhat dumb comment - yes, lack of diplomacy - very much, absence of basic common work protocols - that too. But not a sexual harassment really.
    I get asked out at work, but I don't consider it to be really inappropriate. People always done it in a very polite way and didn't make me feel uncomfortable.

    Recently had a female colleague coming to my office and asking a suggestion: one of our peers told her that he couldn't recognize her once she started to wear dresses more often. It took me some time to understand what exactly she's trying to ask me, and only then I realized she felt it was very inappropriate of him to tell so. This just made me think that people might have different level of sensitivity, because I wouldn't even notice that comment.

    I’m a man and have been harassed at work. I’m about average looking, but even so, in my early 20s, a 40-something divorcee doggedly pursued and harassed me for years even though I told her to stop because I was happily married and not interested. It didn’t stop until she left the company.

      We aren’t counting the fake harassment claims some women use to flatter themselves.

    My friends in journalism experienced sexual harassment. None of my friends in tech have so far.

    My husband works in healthcare, harassed all the time sexually, he explains to me it doesn't bother him because there is no power dynamic, nobody going to rape him, and it's usually peer or lower. I am not saying getting raped at work is a likely thing, but the flash of fear when somebody majorly crosses the line is real for us when our livelihood and sexual autonomy threatened in the same breath.

    Ranveer, I had a (very short) job as a sprinkler repairman. My boss made comments like: "you guys get so dirty, it is ok if you take your shirts off" or "I used to have a guy work for me, we used to (redacted) until he left for school, he still had girlfriends so it doesn't make you gay", "would you ever consider (redacted) after work"
