Sexual harassment in the workplace

Sexual harassment in the workplace.

Accusations are not proof of guilt, nor are denials proof of innocence.  But the saying, "there's no smoke without fire," is true more often then not.

The present news cycle notwithstanding, sexual harassment in the work place is just a passing fad I'm sure.  It probably is just a result of changing mores of our current times and I'm confident it will pass by the way just like drinking, eating, breathing, swearing, cheating, stealing, lying, gossiping and fornicating have had their day and are only remnants of past cultures.

That's not to say that sexual harassment should be acceptable.  Especially when exhibited by a superior ; leaving the victim feeling they have no recourse but to tolerate it or lose ones employment.

If we apply enough publicity and/or punishment we will for sure change human nature and eliminate this behavior. Then we can apply the same principles to eliminating workplace violence, terrorism, nuclear arms proliferation, and global warming.

Or maybe we should eliminate the human race and start over?

It's the politically-correct brigade going overboard once again.

Once what was classed as harmless, fun banter now is turned into something nasty in their way of thinking - in most instances.
