  • I love watching John Oliver, but this one is utter bullshit - the part with tony robbins is true... im not saying that i dont like anti-harassment laws, but when you are an employer you don't want to hire high-risk cases... thus in this case, the woman may have better qualified, but because the public tends to believe women automatically, she carries a higher risk when the company gets sued. Thus, the other person gets hire... THIS HAPPENS - what's john Oliver's position? He shouldn't be hiring employees in the first place? So you mean, you want to control who gets to be an entrepreneur now? ... that's just utter bullshit...

    • @Zuma Zuma wow.. nice ideas... spending so much time, effort and money to do those the changes, how much do you think can a company expect to spend for those changes? Or, how about we save money, time and effort and skip all that and just hire low risk individuals...get the point? As a company, what's my incentive to do all that when I can just hire low risk individuals and save the troubles?

      jedong Baguiojedong Baguio日 前
    • @jedong Baguio 1) have an anonymous channel of communication with HR. That way they can catch if there's a pattern. 2) ditch the "work hard, party hard" culture: keep Christmas parties and other celebrations tame, no open bar, no strong alcohol, no hotel parties. Make sure emloyees have time for social life outside work, instead of being encouraged to spend countless extra hours in the office. 3) make your priorities known at hiring time: inform your candidates that respecting coworkers is one of the first paragraphs in your employee handbook. If the job requires communication with others, ask them about what they would do in conflict situations, or what behavior they see as appropriate. (Obviously, you have to keep your promise and discipline people for disredpectful comments or actions made publicly in the office) There's probably a lot more you can do. My first advice - hire some good and diverse HR reps with good people skills, because as a person whose solution was "eh, I guess I'll just start discriminating against women", you're clearly not equipped to deal with these things yourself.

      Zuma ZumaZuma Zuma2 日 前
    • @Zuma Zumatheoretically, yeah that's a good idea... so tell me exactly, how do you lower the risk of rampant sexual harassment in the workplace? Don't throw out points that sounds good but has no clear path of action.. so, how about naming three examples?

      jedong Baguiojedong Baguio5 日 前
    • @jedong Baguio if you lower the risk of rampant sexual harrassment you won't need to discriminate your candidates. Honestly, looks like a win-win to me: because when discriminating candidates, you're risking to be sued (ironic, right?), you're missing out on qualified candidates, and you have horrible business ethics. Meanwhile, if you minimize the risks of ignoring rampant sexual harrassment in your company, you're not losing anything. You're only winning. You know, as a rule of thumb, when you minimize risks or losses, you need to use your brain and pick the correct area to minimze. You're picking the wrong area. It's like standing in the middle of a highway, wrapped in bubble wrap, because you don't wanna break any bones when you get hit by a car. A smarter solution would just be to go to the pedestrian zone and follow traffic regulations instead.

      Zuma ZumaZuma Zuma5 日 前
    • @Zuma Zuma ohhh.. lowering risk... that's a good idea... that's why hiring low-risk individuals is an excellent idea... nice, you just check-mated yourself...

  • 15:44 Anita Hill said she views Mr. Biden as having “set the stage” for the confirmation of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, who, like Justice Thomas, was elevated to the court despite accusations against him that he had acted inappropriately toward women. And, she added, she was troubled by the recent accounts of women who say Mr. Biden touched them in ways that made them feel uncomfortable.

  • Anita Hill's testimony was corroborated by at least 3 other witnesses/victims, yet Thomas was confirmed. My job in the 80's and 90's was sex crimes education and prevention, and profiling of offenders. I saw violent rapists put in charge of sexual harassment training in one of the world's most powerful organizations, one known for having a history of sex crimes. I watched Kavanaugh's testimony and that of his victim, and have no doubt he not only raped her, but has an MO, a technique he used repeatedly. He was confirmed to SCOTUS. Things have not improved much if at all in the last 30+ years regarding sexual harassment and assault. I lived in a town in early 2000's, where both the Chief of Police and the Sheriff were sexual predators. An officer, who reluctantly testified against the Chief, fled to a distant state after giving testimony, in fear for her life. The Chief quietly "left" without punishment. Victim-blaming is still very much a part of our entire culture.

  • This is a one sided and antagonizing segment. John Oliver portrayed Clarence Thomas as being a predator and totally sided with Anita Hill without telling the full story. Anita Hill testified, but there were others who also testified. Along with Anita Hill, many of the co-workers and former co-workers testified and stated Anita Hills claims were blemish and dishonest. Clarence Thomas also had a statement to make in regard to the faulty claims, and as the chief of the hearings committee, Joe Biden and others who were pushing the narrative of Anita Hills’ accusations were humiliated because of how tone deaf they were when it came to the basis of the accusations. That is also why 11 Democrats voted for the confirmation of Clarence Thomas as a Justice in the Supreme Court of the United States.

  • When I worked for a union that was in the industry I loved, I guess that the guy I had known for a few years that got me the job decided to tell everyone that I had formerly worked at a strip club. I had men who would walk by an area I was in and hold up a dollar bill and yell "hey, i got a dollar, i got a dollar" ...this was an industry I had been in for years and loved. It was a job I loved. And I left partway through the day and went home and cried. I never went back, and I swore off the industry forevermore. Over 10 years later, a friend from my past asked me to come work for him doing that same work because he needed experienced competent people. I eventually agreed and a few months later had to work with that same union. I was scared, I was distracted, and I wasnt as competent at my job. The place I worked, they treated me like one of the guys, and we joked around and had fun. But I had started dressing like a man, mens pants and a baggy t-shirt, hat, etc. And I started working with the union and still regularly deal with sexual harassment, although I determined that I wont allow them to run me out of the only job I have had that ever truly fulfilled me. But I regularly get confused for a man. One day I was working with the public and needed to be dressed well. I changed into a blouse, vest, skirt, heels, did my make up, had my hair done....and when I went to walk to the place I was supposed to go to, was stopped by people i had been working with for years. They didnt recognize me. I dress like a man because I have a larger rear end, thin waist, large chest....and it has led to harassment as well as loss of job opportunities. For women in my line of work, the larger your chest size is directly proportional to your uselessness on the job. I have been looked over, had my equipment sabotaged, had rumors flung around about me, been told by a male on my team that he wasny going to listen to me because i am not his boss, been treated as if i had the feelings of a blowupdoll... Because I am a woman and have worked to hone my skills, but that doesnt matter, it doesnt matter that when i work out of town that I am regularly one of a handful of people (out of 300+) that gets specifically requested back to a team by name instead of sent off in whatever department they need people in. It doesnt matter that I bust my ass, because I am a woman, the guys get yelled at for having a little chic carry more than they are....its not about that I'm going above and beyond because I make sure I am strong enough to do the work, its that they are obviously not doing enough. If I get a promotion, people assume the guy just wants to sleep with me or that i worked my way to the promotion on my back. I had one guy from another company actually ask me, he said "ive seen 5 or 6 women out here, and all of them work at least 10x as hard as the men, why is that?" And i looked at him and answered him honestly, "because as a woman, we have to just so we can get the same respect a man gets for simply walking onto the job" I've dealt with men who are absolutley horrible to me, to the extent that I would go home and cry over their unwarrented treatment, just because (I found out later when i became single) they were attracted to me and I guess didnt appreciate how I would tease them or something when they knew I would never entertain their advances. And let me tell you, being single has not made it any easier. When the biggest tormentor and bully and person who said the most negative things about you and was president of the anti-you/anti-advancement-for-you fan clubs, then the next day wants to be your best friend and has done a complete 180...i mean, I really tried everything to just be civil with this guy, i tried to be submissive and adhere to his orders, I tried to ask questions that would make it seem like i was being friendly or asking his expertise, I tried to soothe his ego by showing appreciation for his skill and knowledge....i tried ignoring it before that, and it only got the point that I was 7mos pregnant and he was supposed to be helping me bring stuff upstairs, with quite a bit of it heavy stuff, and instead of helping me or offering me help, he stood at the elevator until I could manage to drag it out there. And when I said I really needed help cos I cant be lifting some of the stuff, he said that if i couldnt do my job then i shouldnt be here and refused to help. But when I was single, he wanted to take me out, he would hear someone say something derogitory about me, pretty much repeating the rumors he used to spread, and he would go off in my defense. Thats what rancored me the most, because, as i told him after someone came up and made comments about us being together since he was now sticking up for me instead of joining in, I gave up on trying to fight the gossip and lies. People are going to talk, and if I put effort into sticking up for myself every time, I would never be able to have time to do my job. Ive had other women tell me they dont know how I do it, usually right before they leave the industry or cut down to only working a few days a quarter. How i put up with the BS day in and day out. I just tell them, I let them run me out of an industry I loved before, I wont let it happen again. So i dont really talk to people at work, unless its about current work. I dont join sides, i dont join drama. I do my work, I go home, and I try to tell myself that one day it will get better. One day I will be able to stop dressing like a man, one day i will be able to be seen for my skill and accomplishments over my breasts and how so many refuse to be subordinate to a woman. That one day they will stop thinking that I got my job through sleeping my way up, and it wasnt theirs to have, that I didnt campaign for it, and the only reason i was put in it was because there were only 3 people who could do the job and none could work weekdays, and only got my job because they called another place I worked asking if my boss there knew of anyone they could contract to do the work, and my boss there asked why they didnt ask me. I didnt ask for the job, I was entirely qualified for it, but wasnt campaigning for it, and the only reason i got it was because none of the guys knew how to. And when, to try to benefit my union and also allow them to have the skills to have the job, I offered to teach anyone who wanted to know how to do the job, for free, on my own time, they refused to because they weren't going to get paid for it. No one took me up on it. But they are all still bitter that they dont have that job and I do. Just gotta tell myself, one day it will get better....

  • На обзор прилетел ответ от сценариста фильма ВРАТАРЬ ГАЛАКТИКИ ( Андрея Рубанова. Передаёт издание Dailystorm. 1. Рубанов признался, что не видел последний ролик Баженова про «Вратаря Галактики» и вообще не смотрит его JPworlds-канал. «Я не смотрел этот обзор, потому что этот обзор очень низкого уровня, дилетантского. Мне неинтересно наблюдать такие обзоры. Я понимаю, что они имеют широкую популярность, но лично я их не смотрю, потому что они непрофессиональны» (с). Обзор низкого уровня, но я обзор не смотрел. Ясно-понятно. 2. «Человек ни одного кадра в жизни не снял, на производстве не работал, но считает себя вправе критиковать ситуации, о которых не имеет ни малейшего представления» (с). Классическое «Ты должен уметь делать яичницу, чтобы обвинить повара, что вместо яичницы он принёс кусок говна». Но у меня другой вопрос: А что снял сам Рубанов? Сколько фильмов? Да ладно фильмов! Обзоров. Где его канал на ютубе? Может сначала несколько роликов запилить с «кривляниями и смехуёчками»? С чего он считает себя вправе критиковать вещи, о которых не имеет ни малейшего представления? К слову, я и графику не делал никогда, но вот пацаны, что делали графен для «Вратаря» - молодцы (за исключением спутника). Или чтобы это понять, надо пару лет на Марвел поработать? 3. «Я ему не завидую, - продолжил он, - потому что у него, видимо, сознание и мышление очень узкое, если каждый раз, когда люди ошиблись, значит, принимали наркотики. Видимо, для него самого эта тема очень актуальна. Я желаю ему нормализовать его отношения с наркотиками» (с). Нормализовать? Это сколько грамм? Ну во-первых, как без этого выдерживать просмотр вашего кино? А во-вторых, обзор «Викинга» Рубанов таки посмотрел. Это неудивительно, ведь Рубанов - сценарист этого фильма. Тот обзор был полностью построен на персонаже сценаристе-наркомане, в обзоре «Вратаря» я больше склоняюсь к версии сумасшествия тех, кто выделил на такую идею деньги, нежели к версии с наркотиками. А тот сценарист появляется в камео. Ну очень удачно вы в фильме диалог прописали, грех было не впихнуть старого персонажа. В догонку вопрос: Вы там в своём «Викинге» князя Владимира грибами кормите... Честно скажите, узость мышления у меня умыкнули? 4. «Это авторский фильм Джаника Файзиева. Он такое кино хотел - и он его сделал. Я доволен результатом - получилось похоже на то, что представлял, учитывая всю специфику производства. Моей восьмилетней дочери фильм очень понравился, она его дважды смотрела и была в восторге» (с). Авторский фильм на гос. бабки, прошу заметить. А то, что вы довольны результатом, говорит о том, что нихера в нашем кино и не изменится, ведь главное чтобы фильм за 800 млн. рублей дочке понравился. 5. «Если бы фильм вышел на Новый год, когда все еще ходили в кино, когда семьи с детьми могли посмотреть, то кассу бы собрал куда больше. Но «Вратарь» вышел в августе, в ситуации пандемии» (с). А если бы вы вышли в 2019 (как планировали), было бы ещё лучше! А если бы в 2018 (как планировали), под Чемпионат Мира, ТО ВОООБЩЕ СОБРАЛИ БЫ ВСЁ! «Аватар» бы прикурил... Только один вопрос: Чего не вышли? Обзорщики в интернете помешали? Если бы вы выпустили фильм в Новый Год, то может и обзор вышел бы профессиональным. Но вы же не выпустили.

NAREDNDRA MODI DOESN"T WANT HIM TO: In India, Narendra Modi and his nationalist (borderline fascist) government are withdrawing government support for farmers, and privatizing the agricultural sector overnight, this might be the worst disaster since he demonetized half the country's currency overnight!! Farmers have been protesting but have been met with police brutality, broken roads, and a false media narrative. FARMERS ARE BING BLOBKED FROM TRAVELLING TO DELHI TO PROTEST AND THEY ARE PROTESTING IN SHIFTS TO MAKE THE PROTESTS GO ON FOR MONTHS! No serious media coverage in the country and Modi's trying to sweep it under the rug. Wouldn't it be a shame if somebody cast a bright light on Modi's dirty laundry? *(***

      Danny SantosDanny Santosヶ月 前
    • @Danny Santos actually, the much, much bigger problem that makes it hard for the victims to be taken seriously is the behavior that you're exhibiting right now: as soon as someone talks about harrassment, you go "but what about false allegations". Do you not realize how hard it is for someone to come forward when the first thing they'll hear is "don't forget, she might be lying, people lie about these things"? THAT'S the problem. The only reason that we had a breath of fresh air a couple years ago is that everyone came out with their metoos and drowned out the voices who were constantly not believing the victims.

  • One of my male friends has been falsely accused of rape - and the charges did not stick. Almost all of my female friends have had unwanted sexual avances made against them, habitually, including myself - and none of the harassers have been punished for it. People who falsely accuse people should be prosecuted for it, and people who harass others should also be fucking prosecuted for it! And if we look at the numbers, I get the distinct impression that problem B here is the most pressing right now.

  • (Firstly, Anita Hill is so damn eloquent and contained and so clearly knowledgeable-- that goes without saying. This woman is my new hero. But that's not the point I'm trying to make just now.) Came back here after finally watching his interview with Dustin Hoffman in 2017. And it feels so strange to be so proud of a man in relation to sexual harassment. He feels shame at his own lack of action in his youth and he takes that shame, turns it around, and learns from it. And Hill is right, his knee jerk reactions can still be better, but he's still willing to take input from those more experienced/educated (like Anita Hill!) and change his ways and that attitude in comparison to Hoffman's aggressive defensiveness and refusal to show even the slightest bit of empathy or introspection is just... I guess all I'm saying is; Thank you, John Oliver, for being aware of the power you wield (as a public figure, as a white man) and using it to give a voice to those whose own voices keep getting crushed.

  • I don't understand the 'false accusation' or the 'women can claim anything anytime' argument. Rapists rarely go to court and even rarer do they go to jail. Trump got elected president after 2 dozen credible accusers came forward, Kavenaugh got put on the Supreme Court after acting like a child, Louis C.K. still does stand up after admitting he sexually harassed women. It took a ton of women and Cosby to out himself to actually get Cosby. The system isn't in favor of women and if you didn't know that you're part of the problem.

  • Oh this is ridiculous. Of course intent matters. If a guy hugs you, and he was just showing affection, and had no intent to harass you, that is not the same as a guy creepily holding you for like a minute and a half, groping you. That's just ridiculous. Just because it made you feel uncomfortable doesn't make it a crime. What should happen in the first case is that you should simply communicate the fact that the hug made you feel uncomfortable. And then he apologizes and doesn't do it again. The second case, the guy clearly is intending to grope and harass you. This is one of the things that really irritates me about the way women view things. I say women, because I've noticed this only among women. Never men. I remember i had a chick go to HR and say that some drawings i were doing were mocking her. They were drawings of little cartoon animals. None of them had a name on them or anything. She tried to say that one of them, with this symbol for anger, was her initials. I was dragged into HR and interrogated over that. Under the whole "intent doesn't matter" BS standard, her feelings would have made it so those drawings, even though clearly not intended to offend anyone, would be treated the same as if i had directly insulted her, which would have gotten me in some kind of trouble. That's BS. And thankfully HR saw it that way too. This is why I can't stand feminists. I get the need to address sexual harassment and the mistreatment of women, but in large part, the solutions are anti-male and prioritize women's feelings over any kind of fairness. They prioritize accusations over evidence. If a woman accuses a man, that's good enough for them.

    • Intent doesn't matter, because the intent of harrassment is never "to harrass". The intent is getting some gratification. A man who slaps you on the ass can always say that degrading you and making your life worse wasn't his intention - WHICH IS TOTALLY TRUE. His intent was to do what he wanted for his pleasure. Even rapists often say that it wasn't their intent to hurt anyone: they simply had sex, without giving a second thought to how the woman looked too drunk/unenthusiastic/unwilling. They "thought she was into it", they "thought she was flirting", etc. Harrassers and rapists rarely include the other person in their intent at all, that's the dehumanizing nature of the crime for you.

    • ​@vonkäuen Theforbidden Don't call me girl. I might have been one then, but I am a dude now. Doesn't matter if it was Chris fucking Evans, if a guy sniffs a random girls hair without permission HE IS BEING A CREEP. Also, chances are if you were considered a creep it's cause you were being a creep. I mean, I'm a fat dude that has a face that can best be described as 'the after picture of a drug use comparison', and I've yet to have a single girl call me a creep despite interacting with women fairly frequently. And yes, I did tell him, but he threw a hissy fit and went on and on about "how am I supposed to know?" and "it's cause I'm ugly, isn't it?", basically saying what you're saying. I should know men aren't mind readers, I am one. Yet I've somehow managed to clear the lowest imaginable bar of never been called a creep.

    • @vonkäuen Theforbidden My definition of creepy would be 'of or producing an unpleasant sensation of uneasiness or fear.' If the girl doesn't communicate with you or calls you creepy for no reason then obviously I'm going to side with you. Although I would just keep pda or hugs and whatnot out of the workplace in the first place. But I stand by what I said. If anyone, man or woman, feels uncomfortable in the workplace we have to sort it out.

    • @The Viewer Your feelings matter, but so does his intent. Some guys are socially inept and don't understand what a girl might consider creepy. They're not bad people, necessarily. They just don't always get it. Of course, in my experience it depends how attractive a man is. A hug from a hot guy? Not creepy. A hug from someone unattractive? Creepy. It's a double standard I've been on the wrong end of. I once got called creepy by a woman to my best friend for literally no reason. He had introduced me to her and we went to the mall. I pretty much behaved like normal. Didn't even really talk to the girl. But I'm a fat guy. So by default I'm creepy, as is anything I do. It kind of used to make me hate women, honestly, because being viewed that way, being put in that box is very painful. Thimgs other men could do and get away with, I never could. Luckily I've met girls who liked me, who treated me well, even apparently found me attractive. I had one girl at my work hug me and tell me I smelled good. Made me feel good. Did you tell him what he did was creepy? Did he persist in doing that to other girls? If you don't tell him, how's he supposed to know? We're not mind readers, you know. There are obvious things like not just grabbing a girl's butt, but some things just aren't obvious. You've gotta communicate, girl.

  • "Should men be scared" "Not if you aren't harassing someone" You're missing the point. Those men are Scared of false allegations, at least men like me are scared of false allegations mainly because I've been falsely accused and was treated like I had raped someone when I didn't and there was no proof/Evidence of that. It was my word against hers and in a world where "Male Privilege" is Paraded around as being real she certainly had a lot of Privilege telling me where my life was going. She certainly had a lot of Privilege ruining my life, and a few years later when I ran back into her in Public had the nerve to Say "Well I didn't tell them that you did that to me" Even though the whole reason I was in that mess to begin with was because of her. People do this all the time, this Potent most Destructive technique called "Lying" that can mess up peoples lives. And while I'm not going to become an Incel because I believe on the individual not the Mass or Sins of the Father there is a underlying problem that most people overlook and will continue to do so unless things change. Incels are A black sheep in our modern world and while their behavior is Quite toxic and very Dangerous in some cases why do you think they ended up that way? Most incels become like that because they don't feel welcomed in a world that caters to Women as a Whole. Like my sister can call me an Incel simply because I don't bow down to every opinion she has on certain happenings in the world and for What? Because I think Feminism as a Whole isn't Needed in a Society that Caters to women? That other than a few individual cases a lot the world is very much Feminist and hold egalitarian Ideologies? Feminism isn't needed what is Need is Egalitarianism. The fight for Everybody, whites blacks, gays straights trans and cis why should it only be limited to Black people or Women or gay people? Injustice is injustice no matter who it's against. Simply the fact that #KillAllMen can be hastaged and trending on Twitter proves that Men in this country and around the world are treated as second class citizens. Even though we are the ones who Support 90% of society, die faster and from more dangerous jobs have higher suicide rates and When we fight for custody we don't even win even though our house might be more stable that the Mothers. How are we Privileged? We take all this shit to the face but some asshole who Is drunk says you have a fat ass walking down the street and suddenly it's the end of the world? Again. Everybody should be treated equally no person should have more Privilege than another Tom shouldn't be treated better or worse than Sarah. Jimbob shouldn't be treated better or worse than Deyvon (fuck off I'm black I can make that joke) And Steve who likes to go to the Gay strip club down the block shouldn't be less or more than Jim who has a wife and 2 kids. Judge everybody based on them, not based on how they look. People love to quote Dr Martin Luther King Jr but do they actually know what he was about? Do they actually know what the words meant when he said that he hopes his children can be judged by their character not by their skin. That wasn't just meant for Black people that was meant for everybody. Until he or she proves otherwise a white man or A Asian man or a gay Or trans person is no better or Worse than me.

    • Dude did you even watch the video? Yes, false allegations exist, but they're a TINY problem compared to actual rampant harrassment, at least at the time of the interview. So, we gotta fix the big thing first. I'm sorry this happened to you: I understand you're now irrationally scared that this unlikely thing happens again. Kinda like I'm afraid of mountain skiing after my mum fractured her leg there. But the truth is, false accusations are rare, and they almost never result in punishment, much like real cases. So we need to focus on the bigger problem first.

  • I actually met my wife at work, but I completely agree that work is for work and no one should be subjected to any form of harassment. I think the issue is that my wife and I developed a working relationship of respect and trust, rather than me approaching her in a cheap and revolting manner. Our marriage grew from our respectful interaction, the problem to me seems like the people committing the acts of harassment are doing so to sate their own personal demands and the other person is simply a representation of their need. In other words, someone like Louis C.K. isn't interested in respecting a woman or building a relationship, he's just interested in fulfilling his sexual fantasies at someone else's expense. Some women are into it, but if you have to lure them to a room and trap them, it's probably not consensual... Just saying.

  • I left my last job because of sexual harassment. It’s a privately-owned and run assisted living facility, (a husband and wife turned their six bedroom house into a home for elderly), so there was no HR. My bosses were the husband and wife owners and the husband was the issue. It started out vaguely enough so that I didn’t think anything of it; compliments on my work ethic, the on my hair, makeup but after a few years it became making excuses to stay and “help” set up for the day or other things I’d been doing on my own for years, asking for hugs, which I’m normally fine with I don’t mind hugging when appropriate, (this was before COVID obviously), “accidental” touching while walking by, etc. The last straw was when I kept getting comments regarding my butt and legs and the guy kept saying he missed my cute butt when it was my days off, (I was still treating it like a joke and trying to laugh it off but also telling him it’s inappropriate), and then he groped my breast walking past me in the hallway one day and tried to play it off as an accident which we both know it wasn’t. I quit that same day. The only things I’ll miss there are the residents and their little dogs. I left the only other employee they had there confused as to what happened and why I was leaving so fast. I told her about it and she seemed shocked. She told me it’s never happened to her, which is weird since she’s gorgeous and could be a model if she wanted, but she said he’d never been inappropriate at all towards her in the seven years she’d been working there. Just me as the “lucky” one, huh? That was the second time I’ve dealt with workplace sexual harassment, the first time I was in my 20s working at a similar type of place, private owned elderly home, and I did 24 hour shifts alongside an male cna who would make inappropriate sexual comments towards me all the time. I now have a great job working for a home care agency that allows me to work when and where I want and pays several times more than my last job and there’s no harassment at all.

According to him he was just curious what hair products I use cause I was the only girl in our year that left my hair naturally curly and my hair does actually have a distinctive smell cause of what I put in it. He said there was no malice behind his actions. It made me feel sick, was it wrong for me to feel that way or is his intent more important than the genuine disgust and discomfort I felt?

    • The things is, most harrassers don't intend to harm the person. They don't give a fuck about the other person: they only care about their own gratification, and some of them honestly think that what they're doing is not a big deal, that it doesn't bring any real damage. "So I rubbed her knee: no harm done. I didn't rape her or anything". That's why intent doesn't matter much.

      Zuma ZumaZuma Zuma2 ヶ月 前
    • The thing is, that's not the point being made. Obviously situations like sexual harassment are more complicated than getting hit by a car, that's not the point being made. What's being said here is that intent doesn't matter in this situation because harm was done. It doesn't matter if for instance let's say you hugged someone just because that's your way of showing affection. If you made someone feel EXTREMELY uncomfortable with that hug, you still made someone feel uncomfortable and if that behavior repeats then you're especially at fault and need to alter the behavior which is very much like if someone is hit by a car and the driver tries to go on about intention basically to avoid helping to pay someone's insurance. It doesn't matter, the damage is done.

  • Many times over the last so many months, I have been trying to remember Anita Hill's name (She was an important figure before I was born). I had a clear picture of her in my mind and what she was known for, but her name wasn't coming. Today I saw this video in a recommended list and thought "I might as well watch it again so I can at least remember her name." Then, just as I clicked this video, I heard in my head, in John's voice, "Anita Hill." Thanks, memory. What would I do without you.
