Good morning :O) Um, sorry, excuse me, could I just have the attention of bloggers of the male persuasion for just a minute, I have a question for you if you’d be so kind:
If a woman was to greet you with a kiss on either cheek would you consider that you had been subject to sexual harassment?
If a woman were to put her hand on the small of your back and tell you that you had beautiful eyes, would you consider that you had been harassed or subject to inappropriate comments?
Sorry, that’s two questions but, if either of these things happened to you, would you feel degraded or abused in some way; would you report the woman and call for her to lose her job and her credibility? I’m just curious because that seems to be what’s happened this morning according to a news report. I’m hoping at this point that there are some women reading this because I’d like to know if they’re shocked that this sort of thing could happen to a prominent female figure who’s a leader in her field. Oh, another thing, she’s in her 80’s………..doesn’t all this just seem wrong to you???? Aren’t you a little bit outraged on behalf of this woman?
If you are then please just bear that in mind when I tell you that it wasn’t a woman but a man. Still feel the same? Still think that it’s wrong? No? Why? What’s changed?
I’m all for equal opportunity, I fought hard, as a woman, to be successful in business in a male dominated sector, but I really don’t like double standards. Am I wrong? Love to hear your comments
