    re: [W:142] Female Reporter Swatted on Rear While On Air, Screams Workplace Assault. Oh Boo Hoo.

    This thread points out how far we have gone astray. An innocent swat on the ass during a race and its assault.
    Got to ask, if a reporter came up to a person and stuck a mike at their face and started asking questions is that a violation of the persons personal space? Happens all the time.
    imo, the reporter needs to toughen up.

    /sarcasm on
    Lets all be safe and not open doors, give a seat up , don't assist someone, don't offer up a hug without asking first. You may not know how the person will react. Best thing is don't interact with anyone. Only way to be safe.

    Unless some Senate Republicans break ranks, this won't be a trial — it will be a cover-up.

    I can’t believe it needs to be said, but no, you can’t slap strangers’ butts. If identified (I think he may have been?) he’s in for a Very Bad Time on social media.

    What a coincidence.

    I have just watched a rerun of "Friends," in which Chandler's male boss smacks him on the buttocks when they say goodbye each day. Chandler does not like it, so he finally screws up enough courage to ask his boss to stop. But he comes to miss the smacking and feels left out of things if the boss smacks others but not him. "Friends" ran from 1994 to 2014, I believe.

    This is 2019. The United States has changed dramatically since then (think of the #MeToo movement). That kind of conduct is simply not acceptable anymore. Lawyers are just eagerly waiting for a man or woman to file a lawsuit for sexual harassment. People are also being sued for sexual innuendo (words).

    I agree that people should keep their hands off other people, and they should censor their words, too.

    It's not an "innocent" swat, though. Using the term "innocent" to describe actions like that is only just making it seem like acceptable behavior, which it's not. It's not okay to touch anyone else in a sexual manner without their permission.

    I often wonder who those cheesy anti-sexual harassment videos shown in office workplaces are actually directed at. People like the OP and the above answer that question.

    A TV reporter said she was left “violated” and “embarrassed” after being smacked on the bottom during a live broadcast.
    Alex Bozarjian, of WSAV News, was reporting roadside from a 10km race in Savannah, Georgia, when a male participant ran up behind and struck her.
    Ms Bozarjian appeared visibly shocked in footage of the incident as streams of runners continued to pass her on Savannah Bridge.
    She later condemned the runner, saying: “To the man who smacked my butt on live TV this morning: you violated, objectified, and embarrassed me.
    “No woman should EVER have to put up with this at work or anywhere!”


    OK, some older guy swatted her on her bottom THROUGH HER RAINCOAT. Oh boo hoo. It was done in fun and jocularity. Nobody was remotely hurt. She wasn't hurt. This is nothing more than leftist PC fake outrage garbage. 30 years ago, this wouldn't have been a story. And we are supposed to be so outraged at this 'predator' we watch the videos to track down this assaulter, so we can get him fired from his job, maybe get him arrested on assault charges.

    Come on, man. The guy was being playful. Any girl who grew up with brothers has had stuff like this done to them 1000 times. And it was through a hard plastic raincoat for goodness sake. Maybe it was a little too familiar, maybe the guy was a bit boisterous, I don't know. It's just time to lighten up.

    I myself wouldn't do it, because I'm not the backslapping sort. But to crucify this guy for it? Give me a break. And I would say if the girl is really worried about objectification, she should go back to her old high school and raise hell about them handing out condoms to unmarried teenage kids. Talk about objectification!! Also, if you don't want odd stuff happening to you from time to time, don't be a reporter. It used to be if a reporter girl was doing a piece and a passerby kissed her on the cheek, she laughed it off. Took it as a compliment. No big deal. Now a guy gets sentenced for it

    Man who kissed reporter identified, charged with harassment - ABC News

    I always go back to the iconic 1945 photo of a sailor kissing a random woman on V-J Day. People loved it for years. Today, the poor guy would be arrested and locked up.

    Just curious...how would you respond if some man walked up to you and grabbed your ass sexually?

    I suspect the poster would not be happy if some random guy slaps his rear. It should be ok by his standard though because men do that kind of thing all of the time. Right?

    At a sporting event? Sure... there is nothing sexual about it in the slightest.

    What do you call it then? If your daughter decides she wants to get into the entertainment business you're just gonna tell her "Hey, some guys are gonna slap your ass and maybe grab a tit. Just be cool." ?
    Grab a tit? OK, your posts are delusional now...

    Why does it happening at a sporting event, somehow make it not sexual, or makes it okay in the slightest?
