Re: “A Men's Guide to Surviving a Sexual Harassment Witch Hunt

Hey, I got 10 likes. Not bad for considering the audience. Better than I expected:)

@LizzieH. Why would I want to have any sexual contact with a woman I found to be physically and personally repulsive? Use some logic.

@Jennifer: My point is that this issue is NOT a clear black and white issue. There is no switch for when behavior is improper. The totality of circumstances must be considered. In my 3rd hand account for instance, taken by itself the EEOC would say the comment was improper. But placed in a broader scale, it might not have been.

I think we're all seeing that women are subjected to improper behavior by men in power. No real news there, just shining light on a quasi open secret. My concern is that this will spiral into a witch hunt. How many day care workers from the 80's are still in prison after that round of witch hunts?

I am all for people being treated properly in the workplace, regardless of gender. I am a little concerned that without some caution, many men with face unjust hardships in the years to come.

Re: “The Silent Compromise

Your job Thadeus, is to whip up interest,where there is none, in whatever story you are reporting on. Otherwise, the story just pretty much dies on the vine. I do believe that the lack of interest on this subject is the public's support of their District Attorney to do the right thing. Coupled with the complete immersion from the press of any and all officer involved incidents and you have a population which is just trying to get through the day, especially that population in California. Allow those people who deal with this subject the most to come up with a policy and then tweak it if necessary.
