I love you for posting your story.
You have suffered way more than I have; in fact after reading your story I almost feel foolish for posting.
Thank you for telling us. Thank you for being part of the conversation.

I've had my share of being hit-on, never been sexually harrassed that I can recall. Not sure it really has any bearing on my attitude, but as a teenage girl, my posse was all guys, and I learned not to take any sh*t from anyone, and had the confidence (and still do) to call people out on their behaviour. I am a lot more tactful than I used to be, since I'm a mom, and I have to be respectful and set a good example. I may seem like a bitch, but trust me, I am actually pretty nice.

I'm sorry, I went silent for a few days. I had my core rocked.
I was telling my husband about all the conversations that we are having and what an exciting time it is.
We talked about his 25 year old daughter and the opportunities she has. (She just opened her own insurance agency in Charlotte)
And then from outta nowhere he throws in some crude joke about leaving the boys getting extra credit from their hot teachers alone. Um, what? That's disgusting. I didn't know what to say.
That is when I realized even though we were talking about it he still does not understand. Even as he tells me he is excited, he still has no idea what a woman goes through.
But as I tried to stop him and explain that shockingly he was part of the problem. He got mad at me and stormed off. He is still upset with me and says that I'm trying to turn this into a huge drama thing. I'm still not sure how things turned so quickly. But I'm wondering if he doesn't actually believe me and is upset to realize that yes even ignoring the problem is part of the problem.

There have always been Harvey Guys and there always will be. Sad really but it will never change. Political correctness will never change it , at best the creepozoids will simply lay back a bit more or change tactics , and that might even be worse.
