    You're sharing it now, bragging about it in fact, which is why most of us probably don't believe you.

So lets say a guy tries to have locker room talk with me, lets say he asks me something such as if I've ever been laid, can I press charges for sexual harassment? After all, he is making lewd conversation which I believe would be grounds for sexual harassment.
    I don't think the law covers that.

    First you have to express your desire not to talk about such things. If repeated, you may have actionable cause, but I'm not aware of any.

    Just another action of others being offensive to you. If we start going down that rabbit hole, can you imaging how screwed up we would end up as a society? take action against any thing offensive?

    I haven't had to since my first couple years in the military, except training exercises. If I wasn't in the military, I don't think I has to since my Sophomore year.

    Not any details. Just what we can assume are or are not facts.

    Women are something else. One guy they think is cute, hot, etc. says something, and they get all giddy and gossip with their friends about this guy they like and what he said. A guy they have no interest in does the same thing, and they scream sexual harassment, and they gossip with their friends about what he said.

    And I know this isnt a serious OP but hey, I'm happy to join in and highlight how and why.
    I am just assuming ignorance of what sexual harassment really is.

    Harassment of a sexual topic, yes. Sexual harassment as defined by law, no.

    Got the names of any women who have done this, or is this just another delusion for right wing snowflacks who are afraid of women?

    Than I should've clarified. If somebody tries to engage with me in locker room talk which could include asking about my sex life and my sexual history, if I tell them its none of their business and they persist than I should be able to press charges for sexual harassment or at least file a complaint.
