        Liberal Massachusetts has a boys-will-be-boys attitude towards high school sexual assault. 18yo kid gets two years of probation so he doesn't miss out on that important college experience... so he can experience raping women in OH instead?

          I bet he rolled a high Charisma score. If he had rolled a 8 or under he'd be locked up.

            Nah, he's an athlete and the people he raped were only females. Society needs to protect the really important values.

                        Sexual harassment/discrimination in the work place is real, it is pernicious, and it should be dealt with swiftly and severely. You are talking to a guy whose wife works, and who has three single daughters, in their twenties and working full time.

                        But let me try this another way. Assume two different places of work. In each case a young woman is hired by the HR person, and starts her job. Two weeks in she is called into the office of the owner of the business. She's asked to stand up and twirl, to let him get a good look at her "assets." She is also told, in no uncertain terms, that her opportunities for advancement and and to make money hinge at least in part on her willingness to grant him sexual favors.

                        In the first place of work the woman was hired as an accountant for a local manufacturing company. In the second she was hired as a stripper at the Spearmint Rhino in Las Vegas.

                        Are both examples of illegal, quid pro quo sexual harassment/discrimination. Sure. But pardon me if I can't get all worked up with sympathy for the second.

                        The Roger Ailes case is just a slight twist on Hugh Hefner hitting on his centerfolds. You think making these Fox women poster children for the ills of sexual harassment helps the cause??
                        That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                            I think I get what Hovey is saying...he is basically implying that some of the Faux anchorwomen are using their looks to get their job and have their status on the network so if they are going to use it to get ahead they lose a bit of sympathy when they then whine about it later. He is being a bit extreme and hyperbolic but I cant say I disagree fundamentally...

                                I know many (including some women) feel this way, but in my opinion it is wrongheaded. Women can dress as sexually as they want and still retain the right to not being come on to at work. Especially in a business where your job is to appear in front of the camera, and part of what everybody is selling is your looks.

                                You being attracted to a woman is not a license to mess with them. We understand this in some way because we revile Islamic culture that makes women dress head to toe in a bag so they don't slyly get our masculine juices flowing. The argument about women losing sympathy in a harassment situation because they are wearing "slutty" clothes is just that kind of thinking with different boundaries.

                                Even if a woman came to work stark naked you wouldn't have the "right" to pinch her butt.

                                This is just something that older guys have to get over. The world's changed and that stuff has been thrown on the ash heap of history.
