In Mother Russia, Harrassment Sexes YOU!

Change.org wrote:Russian Judge Rules to Allow Sexual Harassment

A Russian advertising executive who sued her boss for sexual harassment lost her case after a judge ruled that employers were obliged to make passes at female staff to ensure the survival of the human race.

The unnamed executive, a 22-year-old from St Petersburg, had been hoping to become only the third woman in Russia's history to bring a successful sexual harassment action against a male employer.
...
"If we had no sexual harassment we would have no children," the judge ruled.

Since Soviet times, sexual harassment in Russia has become an accepted part of life in the office, work place and university lecture room.

According to a recent survey, 100 per cent of female professionals said they had been subjected to sexual harassment by their bosses, 32 per cent said they had had intercourse with them at least once and another seven per cent claimed to have been raped.

Eighty per cent of those who participated in the survey said they did not believe it possible to win promotion without engaging in sexual relations with their male superiors.

Women also report that it is common to be browbeaten into sex during job interviews, while female students regularly complain that university professors trade high marks for sexual favours.

She was locked out of her office. I wouldn't have said If we had no sexual harassment we would have no children (lost in translation is my guess) but based on the info in that article the case should have been thrown out.

Been trying to figure out what to say since this thread went up, but I'm still kinda speechless. Whole thing is just crazy. :-P
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Crazy but not really surprising. I wonder what the results would have been if they conducted the same poll in the U.S. anytime before the 90's.

Especially pre-1980s, this would have been similar to what you found in America, although not nearly to this extent. Sexual harassment in the workplace is, unfortunately, still not uncommon. I'm a discrimination investigator in Nebraska, and probably 40% of our cases are white females complaining about sex harassment, anywhere from quid pro quo sex-for-promotions to simple (but inappropriate) comments here and there. I could tell stories that would curl your toes, believe me.
