By freak coincidence I came across this story from last month where Mariah Carey’s bodyguard accused her of sexually harassing him.
Carey is much higher-profile than most of the men involved.
(The “structural oppression” model is false, by the way.
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.
For example: I’m a junior ncm in the Canadian forces.I requested a geographic posting to get away from that lunatic and get an investigation underway but I was told by my WO that “these things happen for a reason”. It was pretty uncomfortable and I felt kinda vulnerable.Eight months later I was suicidal and that WO was signing my counselling and probation with her husband. 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. Don’t believe random Redditors, but do believe random bloggers?Opinium, which sounds like a weird drug, reports 20% of women vs. You Gov poll in Germany finds 43% of women and 12% of men.The overall rates vary widely depending on how the pollsters frame the question, but the ratio is pretty consistent. The best I can find is this Australian study finding that 21% of harassers are women. I’m less confident on this one, but 20% seems like a conservative guess.
I had a chief harass me daily which resulted in administrative actions when I tried resisting her abuse.
