Sexual Harassment: Surprised?

June 5th, 2017 · No Comments

Stories of sexual harassment in the technology industry are rampant. Why is anyone surprised?

This will be short and bitter.

Stories of sexual harassment in the technology industry are rampant. I won’t put links here to representative reports. There are too many from which to choose, and I find them disgusting.

Brogrammers. Boys club. Reverse harassment—all disgusting.

I find these to be logical but immoral outcomes of where we have been heading since the 1960s. Is anyone allowed to use the word “immoral” any longer?

You grab another person in a place you shouldn’t, you get the back of your hand slapped with a ruler. Never heard of that punishment? Never experienced it? If you had (like me in first grade, thank you Miss Campbell), you would take greater care where your hand wanders.

You say something about another person you shouldn’t, you get your mouth washed out with soap. Again, never heard of that punishment? Never experienced it? If you had (like me in first grade, thank you again Miss Campbell), you would take greater care with what comes out of your mouth.

I am sorry many of today’s “tech leaders” didn’t have Miss Campbell in first grade. That is a great shame. Thank, or blame, the revolutionaries of the 1960s.
