Idk if people even keep up with the news anymore, but if you watch any kind of media, then you've heard about the recent string of firings, suspensions, and other situations happening as a result of a slew of sexual harassment accusations and what not. Now I'm not here to argue whether or not they're true or if this actually happens in Hollywood or not. What I want to talk about is what people are actually calling sexual harassment. When I think of sexual harassment; I think of inappropriate touching, grabbing one's butt, maybe worse. Maybe inappropriate gestures, maybe grinding up against someone. I think of offering advancement in return for sexual favors. I think of inappropriate comments; saying someone has a nice ass, big breasts, a big dick, stuff like that. If these people being accused are doing things of that sort, IMO they deserve worse then just being fired. That kind of stuff is revolting and has no place in the workplace, however, I've read two different cases, just this morning, where a person was fired with none of that stuff. They were fired for saying stuff like someone looks great in that outfit, for giving hugs, maybe a kiss on the cheek, a pat on the back, stuff like that. Now, I for one don't consider that stuff sexual harassment. I was raised in the south and people do that kind of stuff all the time. I don't see how that stuff is sexual harassment. If it is, then maybe I've harassed people sexually. I give back pats and compliment a person when they're looking good too. I'm not a big hugger, but I have no problem with hugs. My point is, do people want to play the victim so bad that they literally will get offended at stuff like compliments, hugs, back pats, etc. or are those things really sexual harassment? Have we, as a society, gone a little too far with needing there to be a bad guy and a victim? A little too far with finger pointing? A little too far with excuses for stuff like why we didn't get that job or why they might not have gotten that part? Am I completely off base here? What are your opinions?
