Brah?
Ok.

I didn’t detect the use of hyperbole in that post, and usually you’re a straight shooter, so I hardly had a reason to suspect hyperbole either.

My bad, I guess.

women are nuts, they are gold diggers looking to hit a rich vein and be set for life, maybe that`s why no decent men want anything to do with most women and they have to turn to lesbianism?

it`s strange how not many poor men get accused of sexual harassment even though we know they are out there every night getting drunk and grabbing woman`s asses in bars. but poor guys have no money so no woman are accusing them of sexual harassment,when you`re mining for gold you know you won`t find any in a coal mine so why waste your time getting out your pick axe?

woman are nuts they don`t know what they want,they just float through life living off of their emotions from one day to the next,subtituting their emotions for moral values from one day to the next.

I suppose all those porn outfits that make the office themed videos will have to switch to BDSM whips and baseball bats format to stay up with the times.

Definitely happens here too...
We are neither special nor immune, sadly.


From what I see though, it seems to be a steroid induced version you’re all dealing with.
I hope that works itself out eventually.

Yep... sure...

Your types are the perfect targets for this bullsh*t article...

All of them. Can’t trust a single working woman. Not a single one.


I'm pretty sure he was talking about the women he works with.

Do you know them well enough to vouch for them?

You’ve got to just leave em alone, do your job and just leave em alone.

Find you a good woman, a coke and a smile and be happy

That’s a very strange anomaly in regards to the ratio compared to society as a whole.
Don’t you think?


Seems like a job worth quitting to me, if that’s the case.

I was thrown out a bank once for just helping a beautiful woman there on a network issue


The big shots thought I was hitting on her…NO, I was just giving out my professional advice



But you got to be cool, professional. Unjust stuffs going to happen; just brush it off and move on

It is, scientifically speaking, the result of cultural entropy. Culture erodes and degrades as we spiral further towards a high-tech Puritan quasi-Utopia.

But don't forget, the pendulum swings both ways.

Things will get worse before we reset and then it will be much much better. Just wait out the storm for awhile and you'll be ok.

Is it every woman? No, of course not. But there is an undeniable strengthening element of misandry in the workplace that is frankly alarming.

And any guy with a lick of common sense knows it's a best practice to simply minimize interaction as much as possible. Avoid eye contact and bite your tongue.

It's actually not much of an exaggeration, come to think of it.

There are a lot of idealists out there who won't adapt because they don't want to face the reality of how society has changed. They want to live in the past because it fits their mindset, and their mindset brings them comfort.

They basically can't deal with reality because that would involve them losing their idealism. They just don't realize that their idealism is delusion. For them to realize that could cause them to lose their idealism, and that is what they are.

They're stuck unless they snap themselves out of it.

I don’t hold anything against people who choose to limit interactions with others at work to avoid potential bullsh*t, for whatever reason they want.


I don’t think the next step is to avoid hiring a specific gender because someone may cause problems...

Think of it like this, why go this route, as in the OP, and discriminate against females...

Avoid hiring men altogether instead, and you’ll have the exact same desired result ie a guaranteed avoidance of true or false sexual harassment/assault accusations.

Now, I think if this alternative was proposed to the ones with a grievance in the OP, they’d be completely against it.

I can only wonder why.

So women for centuries have had to be guarded and cautious when around members of the opposite sex, particularly in situations where they might find themselves in a room alone with them...



So....

How does it feel now that the shoe is on the other foot ?

Not so great, is it ?




I'm crying a river of alligator tears, you poor poor hard done by cupcakes.

Women can learn self-defense, carry weapons, and do all sorts of things to protect themselves.

Men have no defense.

"A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes."

I was accused of sexually harassment at work once toward a woman I didn't even recall talking to. Thankfully, nothing happened to me because there was no evidence. I wonder if I would be that lucky today.

Men have no defense.

Look this is a good thing overall.

BUT…
Of course we need to be alert to abuse, a woman revenge filled act of a lie, or something like that, therein is why we need a protocol to investigate fairly these allegations, and a man shouldn’t lose his career over a mere allegation.


IF this is not attended to then there will be a backlash to this, AND IT WONT BE PRETTY

Women have to understand that men are entitled to due process.


Right now, the greedy media companies should not just wreck a man's career but at lease give him due process. A hearing

Men have no defense.


Yes they do.

It's called "using the grey matter between your ears" on how you conduct yourself at the workplace.

See ?

Your own behaviour in the workplace is what provided you with your own defense and saved you from a false accusation.

Isn't it amazing how that works ?

That happened over 20 years ago, and she and I both had unimportant jobs in a huge corporation. Everything has changed.

I don't think her lies changed the opinion of other women in the company concerning me, but that happens a lot. Women frequently believe other women no matter what.

The Internet was barely used back then. What if she went around libeling me on the Interenet by claiming that I sexually harassed her? Those messages will be there for anyone to find probably forever. No lawsuit could remedy that.

Why should I waste my precious time on a lawsuit anyway? Life is too short.

I don't know if a lack of evidence would be enough today. Corporations look out for #1, and they are #1. The employees are nothing.

I stick by everything I wrote in the original post.

See thats where you went wrong mate, you set your heights to high.

You should have just hit on the blonde chick in nike sweatpants, who was in there trying to cash her welfare check... she probably would have just been flatted.

To many uptight "professional" types these days.
