I had a chief harass me daily which resulted in administrative actions when I tried resisting her abuse. Eight months later I was suicidal and that WO was signing my counselling and probation with her husband. She then started thrusting into my backside.

In the wake of all these sexual harassment stories, I looked back on this moment and considered for the first time that that was actual sexual harassment.
But then is it odd that so few of the recent high-profile victims of sexual harassment have been men, and so few of the high-profile perpetrators women?
The viral Facebook message that started MeToo — at least the one I saw — urged women to come forward with their stories of sexual harassment, and men to come forward with stories of times they perpetrated sexual harassment. Homosexual male harassment is more prevalent than the percent gay men in the population would imply, suggesting that gay men harass men more often than straight men harass women.
Since most men are straight, most victims are women; when the men happen to be gay, they victimize men. Could this kind of ploy really shut up everybody?

Needless to say, every line of evidence we have shows men are less likely to report harassment that happens to them than women are. Is this really that bad? Our society already has an answer to this, and in every other case, the answer is no.
Suppose I write about how we need to do more to support the victims of terrorism. But what if I write about how we need to do more to support the Christian victims of Muslim terrorism? Sounds…like maybe I have an agenda. This is true even if the numbers show terrorists are disproportionately Muslim.
Or suppose I write about how we need to do more to help the victims of crime. What if I write about how we need to do more to help white victims of black criminals?
Again, this does not sound so good, unless you happen to be Richard Spencer. This is true regardless of whether the statistics show a racial skew in perpetrators. Do I think that sexual harassment is being used this way?
