Doctor, how can I be sure I’m not going to be accused of sexual harassment?

While navigating professional relationships can often require that dreaded thing known as “any amount of work at all”, there is hope. You see, by following this one simple rule, you too can interact with women as people. It’s as clear cut as this: Treat all women like you would treat Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. I know, this sounds weird, but trust me, this is a visualization exercise that will work wonders in your dealings with the women in your workplace. When a woman approaches you, just replace her in your mind with The Rock. Then, behave accordingly.

With all the consternation roiling through the entertainment industry over the sexual predations of Harvey Weinstein (evidently long an open secret in Hollywood), sexual harassment is once again in the spotlight. Not that there’s anything wrong with focusing on a problem that’s STILL an issue after lo, these many years. It’s just that we really should be past this, knowhutimean? You mean to tell me we Penis-Americans haven’t evolved at all? We still haven’t figured out women don’t exist primarily for our sexual gratification? You mean to tell me they’re more than sperm receptacles? When did this happen??

Yeah, Sparky…that’s exactly the message here. Rather than get all preachy, which would be WAY too easy, fellow blogger Anne V. Clark has a BRILLIANT idea for men who don’t want to be accused of sexual harassment. You can read it just as well as I can, so I’ll spare you the blow by blow, except to say that it’s all about a very simple concept: respect. Respect people. Respect boundaries. Do that, and you should be good, don’tchathink?

You’re welcome.
