that day i posted that (oct 16) i didn't know anything about it. but promptly was informed. it's really amazing what's come about since.

 

my ignorance of the latest twitter/facebook/myspace healines is telling i don't participate in those by choice

calling out and or stopping aggression on peaceful people is a biggie with me

while it is obviously the moral and ethical choice, doing so or not, especially with people in authority comes with challenges and consequences

one of the problems with waiting to speak up on something like this is that the aggressor might carry on and possible evidence may disappear

pursuing it can put you in the spotlight both personally and professionally

i've come forward a couple of times and after a lot of legal wrangling and hard lessons learned the end results have been mostly positive (going into battle can leave nasty scars)

always document and get legal advice before the confrontation if possible (I can tell you from experience not doing so can be disastrous. Resist the urge to snap and keep emotions in check. Seek counsel first)

in one case on the job a woman was sexually harassed, and I went on the record and after the dust settled the bad guy was gone

the victim and I were friends and we tried to seek employment at other agencies and it didn't go well

this played no small part in my decision to start my own outfit

==========

other time i spoke out on behalf of a child

law enforcement made this one much more complicated and eventually very expensive

because a child was involved the reaction or over-reaction was surreal

marriage was destroyed, reputation and career temporarily trashed

but in the end i (and the child) came out on top

there was a total reboot of my life

i'd do it again but consult an attorney first     {#Yes}   {#Wink}

Like at Fox News? {#Ask}  Selective Outrage is the cause du jour. Me Too is meant to reveal to men how often it happens even to people they care about. Most women cope, suck it up and deal with it. But in regards to being at work and having someone in power use it against you, that is crossing the line.

Have your female boss imply that if she can't feel you up, you'll be losing out on the next promotion, that's when it affects your job, your career and your paycheck. Doesn't feel very good does it? Working everyday under just the threat of it is added pressure. Nor the fact that the other women in the company don't have to fear her. Its you, all alone. And then people say what you wrote. "Big deal, get over it."

This is not about demonizing men, its about awareness. Minimizing this is the problem. You wish for your mother, sister, girlfriend to lose out on promotions or worry constantly about losing her job because some slob in the company wants to grab her breasts, butt or make disgusting remarks to her as she works.

We have a President that thinks reaching out and grabbing a woman's privates is ok. We have Companies using their 'belief' system to influence legislation on women's health care. There are real-world results that happen from this insidious behavior. This is a real thing, not something to dismiss and minimize because it never happened to you.
 

 
seriously. as i said below i just didn't know what "me too" meant. then i found out.

the problems shouldn't be minimized, as you said. how anyone feels they're entitled to abuse/harrassment etc. is just beyond me and it's very sad that it's so...acceptable (is that the word i'm looking for?) anyway, yes, it's a real thing for sure.
