    In modern times, we should learn how to discuss usury.


    There should be no rape, only forms of usury.

    "I would have been able to stop in time if she had been tighter", should be a defense!

    Re: Are corporate anti-sexual harassment courses too extreme?

    All of this should go without saying, but I have in the course of my career had to fire 3 men and 1 woman for sexual harassment.

    In none of those cases did I feel any need to hesitate at all. If you cannot behave well enough to avoid endangering the shareholders' investments, then you will simply have to be a dumbass somewhere else.
    What can we do to help you stop screaming?

    "Harassment. What is that? If she is not making you do it, it is just gossip. Women do that all the time."

    Rules for men:
    1. Give as little as possible. 2. Take as much as possible.
    3. Always have an exit. 4. Enjoy your life to the fullest.

    Right?
    Right. I am in favor of conceal and carry and believe that legal firearms in the hands of responsible adults are safer than drinkable alcohol.

It's been a given my whole professional life. With DECADES of such indoctrination, how would any man do anything that even comes close to sexual harassment? I don't get it. So much as a greeting is a risk. Why chance it?
    I think that's personal advice given your personal situation. I'm sure every HR department believes it's best you don't talk to females at all. Not one word. That's best for everyone.

    But that's not the advice they give everyone. Just some. You can't project your experience onto everyone. You're a very special case, as illustrated in your OP.
