From a recent blog by a defense attorney who got a contract to train city employees (city unnamed) in avoiding sexual harassment. I found this amusing:
Iâ€™ve now completed the first day of training the employees of a local city to avoid sexual harassment, having made roughly 2 hour presentations to two groups of about 20 each.Impressions:1. Never try to explain the confluence of federal and state law to government employees before noon.2. Apparently everyone in this city likes to go â€?GIRL, youâ€™re looking FINE, SHOW me!â€?, and then the other employee turns around in place, and the first one goes â€?WOOOOOO!â€? It is probably impossible to break them of this, at least with the amount of time and the tools and use-of-force limits I am presented with.[Sexual Harassment Prevention Training AAR: Day One | Popehat]
This is stereotypical, but as usual, probably accurate. And of course, it`s also true that different groups have different standards of what constitutes inappropriate behavior, which must lead to a lot of litigation.
