Articles that touch on Sexual Harassment. I'm pretty sure the crusade against sexuality is working in some cases. I'm also pretty sure that it has had many unintended consequences, and not all of them are for the better.

Sexual Harassment : 6 items

Collins: Sushi -
Two Girls, a Guy, and a Sushi Place. Actually, a few more than that. At Rockwell Collins, Sushi became a ritual. I've tried lots of foods; frogs legs, snails, game animals, snakes, and just about anything. After all, if God didn't want us to eat Animals, he wouldn't have made them taste so good: kind of an interesting attitude for an atheist and off-and-on vegetarian, but whatever. While it's common fare today, back in the early 1980's Sushi was something exotic, and this was before "Sexual Harassment" required special training and stifled people's bawdy talk during the two martini (or beer) lunches.

Fake Rape - There's a subcategory of Fake Hate, and Fake Crimes that's Fake Rape. The left likes to spread lies (myths) and then use as an excuse for more government or oppression of the white male patriarchy. Like their fantastical claims that we have a "rape culture", that sexual assault is everywhere (especially on campus) with exaggerated claims, and that Women never use their sexuality to get ahead, have regrets and/or lie about being sexually assaulted or raped. While facts show that fake sexual accusations happens between 2-10% of the time (from multiple studies), which is actually about 5x more common than other crimes that are faked. The reason is pretty obvious, it's an easy crime to claim, and a hard crime to disprove, and it garners more attention and sympathy. You get what you incentivize, and this has great pity rewards. This is magnified in high profile cases.

Google Sexual Harassment -
Google got caught shielding some sexual harassers like Andy Rubin, the ‘Father of Android’ and paying him $90 million dollar golden parachutes, while firing 48 others without pay. That's not exactly being friendly to Women's causes, while pretending to care, and supporting the idea that everyone else had problems.

Gropegate -
"Gropegate" is a completely overloaded term, since the most popular way to slander a political opponent in recent years, is to accuse them of sexual harassment.. then trounce out one or more Women with claims ranging from "he said something that they felt was to sexually forward", to "he used his position to intimidate me into sleeping with him", all the way to various kinds of rape to slur their integrity. Thus there is no "one" gropegate -- there's Clinton, Schwarzenegger, Trump ("grabbing pussy" comments on tape, or specifically one of the women on a plane that said he did it to her), everyone in Hollywood, the media, and all those that helped them.

Harassment Training - I'm watching the companies new "Discrimination and Harassment training", and I'm thinking, "it starts with some rather upbeat music for the topic". Not quite as bad as chika-chika-Bow-WOW.... but I'm thinking, "this is a somber topic, and the slide whistles and Jazzy theme doesn't seem to make it better".

I shared a Floor at Adobe with HR for a while, and one of the HR persons heard me talking in the lunch room about taking their training, and they asked me what I thought. I quipped, "A little disappointing, it was a bit of a downer, as by the title I thought it was going to be a how-to guide". They were unimpressed with my sense of humor. I was unimpressed with their lack of one.

Trump's sexual assaults - List of women who claimed that Trump sexually assaulted them: E. Jean Carroll, Jessica Leeds, Kristin Anderson, Jill Harth, Cathy Heller, Temple Taggart McDowell, Karena Virginia, Melinda McGillivray, Rachel Crooks, Natasha Stoynoff, Jessica Drake, Ninni Laaksonen, Summer Zervos, Juliet Huddy, Alva Johnson, and Cassandra Searle. Most of them are not credible, and the media that reported them were reporting on FakeNews to try to swing an election (as proven how differently they write about Democrats sexual assault accusations, or how many stories they suppressed despite more evidence).


The efforts to defend the underdog (and find them everywhere), is making us more Japanese. A beautiful culture, that I don't want to become.

They have these ideas of Honne and tatemae, or private (true feelings) and public face (behavior and opinions one displays in public).

Under our new Politically Correct overlords, it's safer to assume everyone you meet/know is your enemy and treat them with the cordial politeness of a brutal Samurai that might behead you for any perceived slight, than to treat your coworkers as peers. Thus, I often choose to bite my tongue in public, and only mentally role my eyes, than try to make the world a better place by saying anything.
