Not to me, actually
Sat Nov 25, 2017 3:21pm

Very early in my career, I was groped and subjected to verbal harassment from my 76 year-old attorney boss. I was 19. At first, I shrugged off the verbal harassment, but the day it got physical (he grinded his crotch into my shoulder as I was taking a letter), I not only QUIT (at great financial detriment to my family), but I turned his ass into the Unemployment office when I applied for it. I never knew if they pursued a case against him, but I sure as HELL wouldn't have stayed around for YEARS like some of those actresses accusing Weinstein did. There are some things NO amount of money are worth enduring, and to me, sexual harassment is #1 on the list. I suggest that those who say they are "encouraged" to speak out are full of it IMHO. I didn't need any damned encouragement to do the right thing!

          MANY victims are major "breadwinners" for their families. To quit would take food out of their mouths. In cases like that, people put up with a helluva lot more than they might want to put up with.... more

            I got the picture. She did the right thing. And it was difficult for many reasons not fully described. Conditioning the male with conflicting messages begins at a early age. I blame our culture. I... more

            but my husband agreed that there was no way I could work for that man anymore. He was a large man for his age and I feared that next, he would rape me. The main reason we didn't become homeless was... more

      They all "feel encouraged." FEEL! How about not feeling? How about thinking? How about thinking about the wrecked lives that are far far more morally appalling than a squeeze and a grope that caused... more
