    Between true sexual abuse and harassment, and just women getting offended or feeling uncomfortable. There is true sexual harassment out there (And men can get harassed as well.), but sometimes it can be very vague. Pretty much anyone can be brought up or accused. I remember there was a time at my old job where the bus driver came in and said something like "Women can't cook , or cook as well as men.". A guy was cooking at that time, I think that he might have been joking, but then a female worker heard it, got offended, and accused him of sexual harassment. So sometimes (Or maybe even more than sometimes.) that happens, and sometimes it's just a case of women being offended or made uncomfortable by simple guy talk or male behavior. Heck, sometimes even harmless flirting can fall into this. So, I think that this can be a good thing if it gets us to really narrow this down, and at the same time, weed out the true harassers.


...what has really happened.

I personally know of many cases where a relative, ex-girlfriend, a friend, etc...has expressed how they were sexually harassed. It then turned out to be something as little as a man they found unattractive asking them out, for a phone number or saying they thought they were very pretty. They would say..."It made me feel uncomfortable." And I was flabbergasted at how overly sensitive and over the top their reactions were.

That said...there IS a lot of harassment out there and it is totally unacceptable behavior for men (or women) to treat the opposite sex so inappropriately.

Where evidence is clear its easy...where its not so clear or its a he said/she said case it becomes very difficult and I am not sure how to solve this.

Any woman assaulted should feel safe coming forward and pinning her molester to the wall legally...however false accusations should also face severe repercussions as you cold ruin a persons life over something like this even if they are proven innocent.
