Sexual harassment at work

Like many latest vendettas that have surfaced recently, I fully believe some politicians feel they are above the law.
Now we have a Tory MP who is being taken to task because he asked his secretary to buy a couple of sex toys? Is this harassment?
I think it was Ed Balls and Yvette Cooper who were accused of ordering sex videos on MPs expenses. I guess thats OK then as who was harassing who??.

Ray.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

Difficult

She could have said no

And I’m wondering why she didn’t

He called her something tits and again she didn’t tackle that either

Once I was trapped in a corner by a bishop, yes I have class, who was trying to put his tongue in my mouth

And to be fair I was more concerned that God didn’t notice on his behalf

He’d put us up in a hotel , breakfast the next day

And I steered clear of him

In my case his goodness outweighed his iniquity

We had nowhere to go , it was late and we had three kids

And he stood there and said God is Good

And put us up in a hotel absolutely free

I don’t remember him from trying to corner me , well yes I do

But mostly I remember him for God is Good

I think it was the husband of Jackie Smith who ordered two TV pay to view sex films at £5 a time on her MP expenses.

In that case I am happy to stand corrected Ray. But it was our fiver.

Funny, I was never harassed at work. Too scary? (I certainly wasn't too ugly or too fat!)

However when I was 16 my guitar teacher used to corner me and try to kiss me. I was horrified and gave up lessons immediately!

What have I missed out on... Nobody has tried to sexually harass me..

ray.

Just watching a shifty looking geezer in the library searching intently through the 'S' section of the dictionary, he's stopped now.

I think he's up to something. . .. . . ray......

I suppose my view remains

If you didn’t tackle the problem when it occurred , then bringing it up 20 yrs later publicly, to me, feels a bit vindictive and retributional

I’m not sure how we can really judge an action that happened many years ago

Memory is a strange thing
and the circumstances and intent around an action that happened many years previously can easily be distorted in memory

I think I might have been guilty of Sexual Harassment at work years ago. Twice in the Stationery Cupboard and once in the Kitchen. It cant have been that awful though as she did end up marrying me. I reckon that was her getting her own back.

Young women can be very in awe of their male superiors. How do you deal with your male superior taking advantage of you when he also has the power to sack you or at least over look you for promotion.


Some women have the "balls" to tackle it head on at the time and others don't.
