I don't understand the 'false accusation' or the 'women can claim anything anytime' argument. Rapists rarely go to court and even rarer do they go to jail. Trump got elected president after 2 dozen credible accusers came forward, Kavenaugh got put on the Supreme Court after acting like a child, Louis C.K. still does stand up after admitting he sexually harassed women. It took a ton of women and Cosby to out himself to actually get Cosby. The system isn't in favor of women and if you didn't know that you're part of the problem.

Oh this is ridiculous. Of course intent matters. If a guy hugs you, and he was just showing affection, and had no intent to harass you, that is not the same as a guy creepily holding you for like a minute and a half, groping you. That's just ridiculous. Just because it made you feel uncomfortable doesn't make it a crime. What should happen in the first case is that you should simply communicate the fact that the hug made you feel uncomfortable. And then he apologizes and doesn't do it again. The second case, the guy clearly is intending to grope and harass you. This is one of the things that really irritates me about the way women view things. I say women, because I've noticed this only among women. Never men. I remember i had a chick go to HR and say that some drawings i were doing were mocking her. They were drawings of little cartoon animals. None of them had a name on them or anything. She tried to say that one of them, with this symbol for anger, was her initials. I was dragged into HR and interrogated over that. Under the whole "intent doesn't matter" BS standard, her feelings would have made it so those drawings, even though clearly not intended to offend anyone, would be treated the same as if i had directly insulted her, which would have gotten me in some kind of trouble. That's BS. And thankfully HR saw it that way too. This is why I can't stand feminists. I get the need to address sexual harassment and the mistreatment of women, but in large part, the solutions are anti-male and prioritize women's feelings over any kind of fairness. They prioritize accusations over evidence. If a woman accuses a man, that's good enough for them.

@vonkäuen Theforbidden I think doing something creepy to a female coworker and having no regard for how she may feel seems pretty negligent to me.

I had a guy pull me into a hug and sniff my hair. According to him he was just curious what hair products I use cause I was the only girl in our year that left my hair naturally curly and my hair does actually have a distinctive smell cause of what I put in it. He said there was no malice behind his actions. It made me feel sick, was it wrong for me to feel that way or is his intent more important than the genuine disgust and discomfort I felt?

Well, manslaughterers are still at fault for killing someone even if they didn't intend to. If something awful happens, even if you didn't intend to do it, it's still bad.

"Should men be scared" "Not if you aren't harassing someone" You're missing the point. Those men are Scared of false allegations, at least men like me are scared of false allegations mainly because I've been falsely accused and was treated like I had raped someone when I didn't and there was no proof/Evidence of that. It was my word against hers and in a world where "Male Privilege" is Paraded around as being real she certainly had a lot of Privilege telling me where my life was going. She certainly had a lot of Privilege ruining my life, and a few years later when I ran back into her in Public had the nerve to Say "Well I didn't tell them that you did that to me" Even though the whole reason I was in that mess to begin with was because of her. People do this all the time, this Potent most Destructive technique called "Lying" that can mess up peoples lives. And while I'm not going to become an Incel because I believe on the individual not the Mass or Sins of the Father there is a underlying problem that most people overlook and will continue to do so unless things change. Incels are A black sheep in our modern world and while their behavior is Quite toxic and very Dangerous in some cases why do you think they ended up that way? Most incels become like that because they don't feel welcomed in a world that caters to Women as a Whole. Like my sister can call me an Incel simply because I don't bow down to every opinion she has on certain happenings in the world and for What? Because I think Feminism as a Whole isn't Needed in a Society that Caters to women? That other than a few individual cases a lot the world is very much Feminist and hold egalitarian Ideologies? Feminism isn't needed what is Need is Egalitarianism. The fight for Everybody, whites blacks, gays straights trans and cis why should it only be limited to Black people or Women or gay people? Injustice is injustice no matter who it's against. Simply the fact that #KillAllMen can be hastaged and trending on Twitter proves that Men in this country and around the world are treated as second class citizens. Even though we are the ones who Support 90% of society, die faster and from more dangerous jobs have higher suicide rates and When we fight for custody we don't even win even though our house might be more stable that the Mothers. How are we Privileged? We take all this shit to the face but some asshole who Is drunk says you have a fat ass walking down the street and suddenly it's the end of the world? Again. Everybody should be treated equally no person should have more Privilege than another Tom shouldn't be treated better or worse than Sarah. Jimbob shouldn't be treated better or worse than Deyvon (fuck off I'm black I can make that joke) And Steve who likes to go to the Gay strip club down the block shouldn't be less or more than Jim who has a wife and 2 kids. Judge everybody based on them, not based on how they look. People love to quote Dr Martin Luther King Jr but do they actually know what he was about? Do they actually know what the words meant when he said that he hopes his children can be judged by their character not by their skin. That wasn't just meant for Black people that was meant for everybody. Until he or she proves otherwise a white man or A Asian man or a gay Or trans person is no better or Worse than me.

I actually met my wife at work, but I completely agree that work is for work and no one should be subjected to any form of harassment. I think the issue is that my wife and I developed a working relationship of respect and trust, rather than me approaching her in a cheap and revolting manner. Our marriage grew from our respectful interaction, the problem to me seems like the people committing the acts of harassment are doing so to sate their own personal demands and the other person is simply a representation of their need. In other words, someone like Louis C.K. isn't interested in respecting a woman or building a relationship, he's just interested in fulfilling his sexual fantasies at someone else's expense. Some women are into it, but if you have to lure them to a room and trap them, it's probably not consensual... Just saying.

I left my last job because of sexual harassment. It’s a privately-owned and run assisted living facility, (a husband and wife turned their six bedroom house into a home for elderly), so there was no HR. My bosses were the husband and wife owners and the husband was the issue. It started out vaguely enough so that I didn’t think anything of it; compliments on my work ethic, the on my hair, makeup but after a few years it became making excuses to stay and “help” set up for the day or other things I’d been doing on my own for years, asking for hugs, which I’m normally fine with I don’t mind hugging when appropriate, (this was before COVID obviously), “accidental” touching while walking by, etc. The last straw was when I kept getting comments regarding my butt and legs and the guy kept saying he missed my cute butt when it was my days off, (I was still treating it like a joke and trying to laugh it off but also telling him it’s inappropriate), and then he groped my breast walking past me in the hallway one day and tried to play it off as an accident which we both know it wasn’t. I quit that same day. The only things I’ll miss there are the residents and their little dogs. I left the only other employee they had there confused as to what happened and why I was leaving so fast. I told her about it and she seemed shocked. She told me it’s never happened to her, which is weird since she’s gorgeous and could be a model if she wanted, but she said he’d never been inappropriate at all towards her in the seven years she’d been working there. Just me as the “lucky” one, huh? That was the second time I’ve dealt with workplace sexual harassment, the first time I was in my 20s working at a similar type of place, private owned elderly home, and I did 24 hour shifts alongside an male cna who would make inappropriate sexual comments towards me all the time. I now have a great job working for a home care agency that allows me to work when and where I want and pays several times more than my last job and there’s no harassment at all.

The things is, most harrassers don't intend to harm the person. They don't give a fuck about the other person: they only care about their own gratification, and some of them honestly think that what they're doing is not a big deal, that it doesn't bring any real damage. "So I rubbed her knee: no harm done. I didn't rape her or anything". That's why intent doesn't matter much.
Aspiring Creator
Aspiring Creator 9 дней назад
The thing is, that's not the point being made. Obviously situations like sexual harassment are more complicated than getting hit by a car, that's not the point being made. What's being said here is that intent doesn't matter in this situation because harm was done. It doesn't matter if for instance let's say you hugged someone just because that's your way of showing affection. If you made someone feel EXTREMELY uncomfortable with that hug, you still made someone feel uncomfortable and if that behavior repeats then you're especially at fault and need to alter the behavior which is very much like if someone is hit by a car and the driver tries to go on about intention basically to avoid helping to pay someone's insurance. It doesn't matter, the damage is done.

Many times over the last so many months, I have been trying to remember Anita Hill's name (She was an important figure before I was born). I had a clear picture of her in my mind and what she was known for, but her name wasn't coming. Today I saw this video in a recommended list and thought "I might as well watch it again so I can at least remember her name." Then, just as I clicked this video, I heard in my head, in John's voice, "Anita Hill." Thanks, memory. What would I do without you.

@The Viewer Evidence? Plus, concern doesnt just arise from the frequency of the allegation, it also arises from the severity. Being falsely accused of sexual assault is far more harmful to your life, career, and relationships, than being galsely accused of stealing your coworker's sandwich. But again, unless you can produce evidence that false claims of theft are more likely, you're wrong on two counts.

This genuinely made me tear up. When John asked "It's kind of sad that that's not an instinctive reaction, isn't it?" he sounded so sincere and empathetic. Like you could see the hurt he could feel for his actions or lack there of. Even leading up to it she gave him the answer and it was so obvious to just ask someone how they're doing that he was nodding at how obvious it was. That really resonated with me. Some people just don't know. A lot of people I think are good people but genuinely don't know what to do for others. I really do hope this video helps people learn. But most importantly I really do hope they can empathize with real situations women have gone through.

8:45 This is a really important part here. With a lot of crimes nowadays (specifically Harassment, Rape, and Racist/Sexist/Homophobic behavior) due process is basically dead. It goes from Accusation to Public Action before trial. We’ve forgotten innocent until proven guilty. We shouldn’t punish either party (the accused or the accuser) before a trial. No-one should be fired, publicly shamed, or kicked out of college before the trial and it should be illegal to do so (as far as the firing or being kicked out of a college).
ShadeDragon

@Zuma Zuma So you’re saying that people should be allowed to falsely accuse other people of crimes without punishment? If you’re only saying that we shouldn’t punish accusers if the accused is guilty, well that’s pretty fucking obvious. If not, then you’re just wrong.

I was harassed at several jobs. From being grabbed and his hand going between my legs to coming up behind me when I was busy and grabbing both breasts with both hands. Now I'm sorry its not rocket science you know damn good and well that is sexual harassment. Keep your hands to yourself and your improper comments to yourself. Easy to do. Do you want some perverted piece of shit fondling your wife or daughter or sister. If you dont care then get some help.

Yeah, but there will always be women who want to sleep their way to the top and flirting is an easy way to get what you want from certain men. Even if their relationship is 100% consensual, it's still normalizing sex as a bargaining chip. Then, we're supposed to expect these same men to reject her advances and report her for misconduct? Or do the other women in the office need to slutt shame her until she stops?

As a customer service worker, harassment is EVERYWHERE!!! Almost every time I work there will be at least one man that comes up and says something gross or even will TOUCH ME!!! One time I was stocking the bottom shelf and was on my knees and a man that had to have been at least 60 came up and said "Finally got you girls on their knees!" And then bent down and put his hand on my back. I couldn't yell at him like I wanted to because I could've gotten fired, so I just awkwardly laughed and walked away. This shit needs to stop.

Wow. I had a stark reality crash down in me a few years ago. My partner and I had a little disagreement about this. She organised a sit down, with most of the women I consider myself close too. And each of them addressed the question. "Have you been sexually assaulted." It shattered me. Horrendously. Since then, I have had plenty of input, from women in my life, from that point and people that came into my life since. Anita, is a saint. I asked those friends if mine for information. Information about who, and when, and even why!? What kind of arsehat asks WHY!? Not one of them would tell me anything more. How do you do it? That rage I felt, has stayed with me. Cold and ever present. I know it's not right to even say this. But if I ever find out, that thus happens to my chosen family. I will make that prep, wish for the sweet embrace of death, with their entire being. They will beg me to end it. And they will fail.

Impeccable episode. Comments, I do have a genuine question. As a bi far left Male, I have been flasely accused of sexual assault despite not having sex with the woman. Luckily I was seen as I am, and her lies and twisted stories were exposed. Having had nearly exclusively female friends until college and many ex's and close friends confiding in me their experiences, ever since I myself have been hit with a close call of a major life altering accusation I really do not see how we can make progress in anyway legally that wouldnt result in wrongful imprisonment on any scale. Thoughts?
Zuma Zuma

you didn't go to jail, did you? False accusations are rare. Right now there's a lot (A LOT!) more cases when a very justified accusation doesn't go anywhere, than when a false accusation does. So maybe the number of wrongful charges will increase a little, but isn't it a fair price for getting justice for a lot more victims? After all, that's how it works with most other crimes: the possibility of falsely convicting someone doesn't mean we give up on punishing people altogether.

First, I don't think hitting someone with your car unintentionally is the same as giving a handshake or complement to someone without the intention of doing harm and then this someone turning around saying what your intentions were. In the first case the damage is tangible and evident, in the second case the damage is.....more subjective at least if not completely construed. I've always had a problem when someone can do something and then somebody else dose the same thing and gets treated differently. Someone she likes gives her a hug , grate! She doesn't like the person, harassment!! She has the right to like or not like anyone... but bringing legal, workplace and economic consequences upon someone for something that could have been perfectly normal if she just happened to like him or (we all know it...) If she could get something from him... It's bull shit !!! And let's face it wining a lawsuit is getting something...

Hi I'm back to this video during my 2020 binge. Since this aired I've started working myself, and I am part of a team of programmers and testers with a good portion of women. Thank you Prof. Hill for giving some advice here. Because of course in the team sometimes we get joking and laughing, and someone (or even myself) make a comment below the belt line. I have asked my colleague "Hey sorry that was pretty low. Are you ok?". She said it was ok in that instance but I'm glad that I can teach myself to pay attention to this, so it doesn't derail completely.

The republicans have always been the problem. Watch every video calling back to these types of issues. Orin Hatch? Have the republicans always played “hmm that could be the right idea.. but let’s go the extreme opposite of what “good” might be..” From climate change, racism and every issue this video brings up.

I was sexually assaulted by a woman in the workplace, but it wasn't taken seriously because I'm a man ...can we as a society talk about that? 😒

sorry that happened, buddy. But just so you know, absolutely no laws or measures that exist or that are proposed to combat sexual harrassment are gender-specific. So you're not being ignored by the people who are aware of the problem: only by the people who don't give a shit about either female or male victims.

I think it's pretty simple for anyone who doesn't know how to behave around women.. Don't say or do anything to a female colleague that you wouldn't say or do to a man. Problem solved. Also aren't these people supposed to be working?

Speaking as a professional woman who’s been a 20 year career military officer and federal employee as an attorney and judge (who’s had the pleasure of meeting Prof Hill), it’s infuriatingly frustrating when I’ve experienced workplace sexual harassment and male coworkers who witnessed the behavior would look at me and shrug. Literally shrug their shoulders and say “oh well.” It’s maddening knowing not only did something inappropriate and illegal happen but that others witnessed it and tacitly approved. As women, particularly women in male dominated fields like the military and the practice of law, we’re trained daily to ignore harassment, to normalize it and accept it as part of the cost of doing business. Complaining is a sure way to guarantee you won’t advance. Even after being sexually assaulted I was told to keep it to myself because “Jags don’t make problems for command, we solve them” when I sought the advice of my SJA (commander equivalent). I was warned that my spotless career would suffer and my fast burning career would be derailed. And it was absolutely true.

Working years with both male and female colleagues i have managed to not molest male co workers or direct any sexual comments or touch without permission, why the heck do people think its hard to keep your organ to yourself and get the job done. You are there to work not to fool around with oposite sex. You can be friendly and polite without touching thats all im saying. Every single person working beside you are human being HAVE respect for their personal space

Fact is there are some genuine cases, but there are also slot of money grabbers and men are afraid because if a innocent man is accused then automatically his career is ruined simply because a woman accuses a man, even when the woman has proven to have lied about it the damage is done, now the UK is trying to push a new law that if you say anything negative about a woman you get jail time, misogamist law it doesn't apply to misandry though, false claims are real and are not rare,

those cases are very rare, compared to justified accusations that get buried. Your priorities are twisted.

I always hated having to take sexual harassment classes at work. I get why they're necessary but I just get so frustrated every single time I've had to take them (they're mandatory to take on a yearly basis) and always made the same comment every single time, "If someone has to be told that this kind of behavior is unacceptable, why are they here in the first place?". I know that may sound dumb, and it's so frustrating having to sit there and have to listen to them explain that groping your coworker is unacceptable behavior. Maybe it's because my parents taught me to teach women with respect, but it just boggles my mind that people have to have these things explained to them. It should go without saying that hitting on, touching, harassing, etc is not acceptable. Raise your kids properly people, and maybe one day we won't have to have yearly classes explaining that hooting at your female coworker and grabbing her ass is inappropriate.

This ass wipe that was at my current place of work constantly made inappropriate comments simply because we no longer have an HR department. One day he said “whoops i got excited because we have a 17 yo on the line” , referring to a young woman who is a server (i am a sous chef , this man was one of my line cooks) i literally got so mad that i walked out of the kitchen , started crying , let him finish his shift , then i fired TF out of him. The thought of him disgusts me and i was appalled that no one had the balls to get rid of that imbecile let alone say something to him! Dickhead , if i ever see you , I’m shoving your shitty looking mask down your throat. Stop wiping your ass with your mask dipshit.

Anita Hill just said intent should not matter in regards to sexual harassment. I cannot overstate how dangerous that sentiment is

Cops and Military much worse than the Forest Service. Even though it's a much less frequent occurrence I wish he would have also addressed that men can be victims of a sexual predator as well.

To those abuser apologist... You are hired to work, not to have sex. Do not sexualize anything in workplace / work employment unless you are sexual worker. Is it really that hard or do you really can't control yourself? Btw sexual and/or other kind of harassment happened a lot due to power disparity between perp and victim, and perceived notion of impunity. It is not about gender or sexual orientation, no one go out against you and/or your kind people. It is against people who misuse power and disregards others rights. It is not battle of sexes

I think one thing that would clarify what type of investigation occurs when somebody alleges sexual allocation. Would be to ask the leading investigator or whoever's in charge of it. To explain the differences between asexual failure sexual criminal versus those who are physically fit mentally sound spiritually balanced being able to express physical freedom living up to the pleasure potential responsibility of femininity and masculinity. Keep in mind sexual crimes are classified as the weakest form of criminal conduct.

If someone complains about sexual harassment and gets a letter that states a investigation has been done no wrong doing was found. My question to the incompetent sexual failure that wrote the letter. It would be what did your investigation consist of. And would you like your soul and spirit to be treated with the same type of professionalism.
