I know. People not working in today's business environment have no idea how broad is the brush called sexual harassment. We'd logically think it would fall into one of the Billy Jeff categories (of rape, exposure, or intimidation) - but it also covers complementing someone for their clothing. When you attend one of those harassment meetings ('Do's and Don'ts' for management) - you quickly realize that you've probably been guilty of various acts of harassment over the years.
So the DNC Media is happy to toss out the phrase 'Sexual Harassment' - knowing that people's minds will run wild and thinking it falls into one of the Billy Jeff categories; whereas the reality was probably something more mundane such as telling a joke, or using inappropriate language.
At last years seminar for sexual harrassment at work I posed a question. “Being a male, if I am accused of harrassment and the allegations are proven untrue, what is my recourse legally to restore my reputation?”
Her reply was “You’re on your own”. My jaw dropped, I was so stunned I couldn’t respond to her statement.
