- It happened to me: I was sexually harassed onstage at a comics convention – That’s right, onstage. By a fellow panelist. From Heina.
- Men’s Rights Redditors flood Occidental College’s online rape reporting form with false accusations – Even though reports using the anonymous form do *not* result in anyone “going through the grievance process.” Way to go, douchebags. From Amy.
- Study: Your cat hates you – An unpublished study, of course. From Ginger.
- Ancient Chinese cat bones shake up domestication theory – Because today needed a cat theme, I think.
re the comic convention – I once attended a sexual harassment workshop (no I was not being reprimanded, everyone attended) and the female lecture described a situation similar to yours. She then preceded to role play the scenario something like the following:
MAN: “inappropriate remark………..”
WOMAN: “sir, your remark makes me feel very uncomfortable”
MAN: rewords remark to say something like don’t be so sensitive.
WOMAN: “please , your remark is offensive and makes me feel very uncomfortable”
MAN: tries to brush off offence, and says things like “toughen up”
WOMAN: “please your being hurtful and making me very uncomfortable”
Thats the best that I can recollect how it went, basically you avoid getting into a discussion, because you will eventually be tricked into defending your ‘oversensitivity’. Instead you stay focused on how HE is making you FEEL and do not deviate.
