I am about to have my 69th birthday. In my lifetime I have seen things go from overly prude to anything goes as far as sexual permissiveness is concerned.
My main thinking says that NO means NO, not maybe. This goes back to what my mother taught me. My dad didn't say this in so many words, but my parents treated one another with a certain amount of respect that set the pace for me growing up.
Now to my personal observations. In the work place there are those who invite problems. I am no saying the woman is to blame, but the woman who wears inappropriate outfits should know better. If they wear something that displays the navel from the top of the blouse, that's an invitation for someone to look. It is a simple and normal reaction. You should get my drift here.
I understand it's not fun having to work in a place and act like robots. Joking and having a family like atmosphere is healthy. After all, we spend more time at work than at home in many cases.
As others have said, why now? Instead of when it happened. I don't know. I do know this is not new, men and women have been doing these things since they first discovered they are different.
I know I have not solved any problems, and I sound like I'm blaming women (I'm not). I do know from my own experiences that a dirty look or a slap in the face will pretty much settle me down if I say or do something not quite right. I would sure hate to be 20-something and dating right now, knowing that 40 years in the future I will be accused of doing something I can't even remember.
