NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY
This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.
oh my fucking god i cannot believe this bullshit!! this article is so fucking condescending and backwards it might as well have been written in the 50s!
"women are more likely to get fired for complaining and lose their case in court." so what? that means women shouldn’t try?? this kind of thinking is only going to lead to an increase in sexual harrassment! if women stopped reporting it because they might lose their job, or the court case, then the men who do this kind of shit will only think they are more likely to get away with it, and thus do it more often. what the actual fuck does that achieve?? nothing fucking good, that’s for sure.
"The same trait that makes men want power is the trait that makes men think it’s okay to use that power in a male/female dynamic" okay THAT is just fucking stereotyping and generalisation. just because a guy seeks power in business/his career doesn’t mean he wants to go around dominating and harassing women. fuck the fuck off.
"if you want to have a career of increasing power, you are going to have to keep quiet about the harassment." so basically, give up on the idea of having a successful career if you don’t want to be sexually harassed. you’re just a woman, anyway. what gives you the right to think you can hold any kind of power in your job without being harassed by men?
"The laws that govern sexual harassment outside of the US are a joke." so somehow that impacts on the way women in the US should behave….. what??
"There is a big difference between harassment and sexual assault" it doesn’t matter if it makes you uncomfortable!! let it get worse until he rapes you, and then maybe report it!
WOMEN AND GIRLS OF THE WORLD
IF I SOMEONE IS HARASSING YOU, MAKING YOU UNCOMFORTABLE, OR THREATENING YOU IN ANY WAY — SPEAK UP!!
TELL HIM TO STOP, TELL HIM YOU DON’T LIKE IT, AND IF HE CONTINUES, REPORT THAT SHIT ON THE SPOT.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PUT UP WITH IT
