Nobody ever talks about the other side of sexual harassment. The side where women can be just as inappropriate as men or in some cases more. I have had some things said to me by female co-workers in the past that were highly questionable. I had a female co-worker who used to love feeling on me, but it was looked at as comical because I was a man and men supposedly love when women are all over them no matter the situation or if you are attracted to them or not
The double-standard is everywhere even from customers. I had a patron at one of my jobs refer to me as her pool boy(with sexual overtones). Now be clear she was an older white woman and actually very very nice, but I also understood if an older black man would walk into a young white woman’s place of work and spoke to her that way he would have been labeled a pervert.
I was watching a clip of a show called, “The View”, and they were discussing Matt Lauer and the sexual harrassment charges he is facing and all I can see where a bunch of hypocrites. I have seen in past shows where they would have some male superstar on there and all the women in the crowd are hooting and hollering. Most, not all would say any everything to him to get close to him.
I know some women will read this and automatically get offended. It’s ok. I understand. Some women are just scared to look in the mirror and accept that they are partly to blame for this highly sexualized society we live in. Quietly they enjoy the double-standard and they do not want anybody to mess up the status-quo.
P.S. Do not throw rocks if you live in a glass house.
