So legit question for the mods and any of the women of AF: has anyone here actually been sexually harrassed on this forum? I understand that damn near every woman (and many men) has experienced something somewhere in the ballpark, I just want to gauge how big a problem it is here specifically.
I was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world is mad.

Sorry Beccs, you'll have to keep guessing where the guys want to stick it! (not me of course, I'm a gentleman)

In all the holes they can!

We’re talking golf, right?

Two people that I know of for certain.

But the rule wasn't put in place to stop rampant, wide-spread harassment.  It was instituted because 1) it is a particularly scummy behaviour for people to indulge in, and 2) because there was no rule in place that covered it. Theoretically then, we were left with the options of either allowing such behaviour or punishing people who hadn't broken a rule.

I can think of a few times when women here have been subjected to vile comments that were obviously not welcome.
And some that were just sleazy.

In fact it seems to be more recently than before. I wonder if Trump being such a sleazy prick has infected the character of the US?



You can fix ignorance, you can't fix stupid.

This makes perfect sense to me. Sexual harassment is bullshit, and their ought to be rules against it.

I don't see too much worrywarting over the implementation of this rule, which is dope.

Yeah, I think the random flirts over the forum, like Valk with Ig are of no concern, mostly sustained advances after a "ehhhh, sthap".

I never saw Ig saying stahp. Big Grin
