It started to firmly take hold around 1990 and has never been stronger than RIGHT NOW.

I literally blame the liberal PC brainwashing of popular TV shows of the '80s planting the seeds, and of course our good friends in the liberal news media and academia in concert with liberal scum-sucking politicians.

I grew up in the '80s before the poisoning was complete. I am very glad I got to witness that decade, including Ronaldus Magnus. Remember the classic movie Airplane (1980)? You couldn't DARE make such a movie today.

The point that you are missing is who is enabling the bolded parts of your post above?

The answer would be the men running the company.
Yes, it was................because EVERY splinter group, represented by some cheesy law firm, threated the company with lawsuits "up the ying-yang", unless women were given special breaks. The company figured it was easier to bust the men's chops, rather than spend time and money in court..........

Default just wondering.

have any young daughters? mom share such an experience?
what happens when the young female employee is then grabbed and fondled?
i've know women who were and it is disgraceful,degrading and,disgusting

don't lump all men together. don't put the majority of men in the same category with the likes of bill cosby and roger ailes. we are better than that!

Some of these charges go back decades and are probably unprovable but none the less they get major attention and often ruin men's reputations and cost them their job.

The secret war on men is growing and I believe it's fed from the feminist movement and the left.

To this I say

"Hey Babe Nice butt! Like to go to dinner and a movie maybe to my place later?"

This shouldn't be the basis for a multi million dollar law suit or criminal charges. if women want an equal playing field here it is.

"Hey Dude! Nice butt! Want to go to dinner and a movie maybe to my place later?"

Maybe it's time for a change in our laws, a change in our attitudes and a reaffirmation of being male.

Just my opinion anyway. What do you think?

Yes. I was reading an interview somewhere with some advertising executive who flat out said, yes, that is the script you have to follow nowadays or you WILL get sued.

I have also started to notice a few commercials where the woman is a dufuss, but ONLY if there are NO men in it whatsoever.

(To be fair, yes, I do recognize that it was the other way around 50 years ago. We've just gone too far to the other extreme.)

You don't have to be a drooling barbarian to be a real man. Real men treat ladies with respect.

Now, if you already have that kind of familiar relationship, or she says, "Do these jeans make my *** look big?" feel free. "Babe, your *** looks fantastic with or without jeans. Wanna go get dinner?"


Saying something like that might be fine, or it could be a total douchebag move. Depends on the people involved and how well they know each other.

I worked with a chick once that did a heck of a lot more than smack talk. She'd grab my *** in the back room, and vice versa, and that's as far as it went. It was harmless flirting, but if anyone in HR had witnessed it I'm sure I would have been fired even though she was the instigator.

You have to be careful, what one person considers harmless fun the next one will go straight to the cops with. I stay professional at work, I would never start anything with a female co-worker. However if one of them flirts it doesn't bother me, I'll play along.

Definitely. I get sick of every sitcom having a dad that's a total idiot.

I've figured out how to begin the fight to give men back their much maligned masculinity.

We need to choose a Miss Corvette, Miss Stingray, Miss Z06 and Miss ZR1. We need a bikini competition with cars and an all male jury to rally around. Chauvinism at it's finest.

Works for me.

BINGO. I've seen more men get it up the *** in court than females. If you've got a *****, you're already guilty.

P.S: And why is it fair to give up half of what you earned to their asses when you divorce them? That's a load of BS too.

Someone who is afraid of backlash from minority and feminist groups who bash white men every day and have a whole army standing by on social media ready to protest and strong-arm business?

I don't think that is the reason white men "bash white men" in the media.

Perhaps, white men like you interpret the "bumbling, idiot white dude" trope on TV and movies as a slight, but as I point out, there is nothing new about that.

Reading into things a bit too much, snowflake?
