    Well guys, reading all about this stories and undergoing mandatory sexual harassment prevention training at work I cannot fail to remember once upon a time the much healthier and in someone's view even more moral men-women relationships under the socialist dictatorships in the Eastern Europe's Empire of Evil before it finally collapsed in 1990.

    Yes, for many women there the easiest path for a career advancement was still to be let f..ked by their bosses, same as admitted here by one rather-be-honest female co-worker. Yes, with religious morale and beliefs virtually destroyed by the communist state, there was abundant cheating, mostly with co-workers because they were easiest to communicate with even when work hierarchy wouldn't match anything to assign it to some form of sexual harassment. Yes, there were many families destroyed by closer relationships between co-workers, Yes, there was abundant porno sneaked from the West through the communist censorship but hardly anyone was addicted.

    Yet, a man and a gentleman wouldn't hesitate to show a courtesy and admiration, to offer friendship to any female, even not co-worker. Unpunished rape was a privilege only for the high-ranking communist/government officials, others wouldn't dare it not just because of severe punishments, but because of even harsher treatment from the "court of public opinion". Men and women were mostly equally paid and promoted depending of course by their links with the ruling communists, not their work value and contributions. To show a trivial respect to any women by opening a door and letting her go first, by standing up and offering his seat in the crowded mass transit etc. was just a norm of politeness, not a timid overture to a courtship.

    But the healthiest thing was, despite the easily available porno, the prevailing attitude towards sex. More frequently than not, this was just a form of deeper friendship transferring into mutual, physical satisfaction, not demonstration of power in any way. And also frequently, cheating while keeping discretion was not considered a sufficient reason for a divorce, more like "emotional vacation" from the not-so-happy everyday grind at work and family duties. After divorce, men were not left to be financial slaves, all were equally poor by western standards, and rich by third-world country standards (hence, the now lost second-world). Don't take me wrong, I'm not defending the widespread cheating and morale in those godless countries, but still, can you compare it to the western style atheist culture obsessed with the animal side of the sex today?

    One doesn't need to dig too deep to find out the real culprits of this gravely sick American sexual culture. These are the same powers that are building their globalist empire following the old British rule of "divide and conquer". In the case of men vs. women their servant is the quite powerful Hollywood porno industry, helped by the public schools and their teacher's unions. Imagine what would happen if the kids at school were taught to better understand what is Platonic love, love poetry, romances, and etc. instead of reproduction biology and learning how to put a condom on a cucumber? What would happen to the porno industry now surpassing just as horrible movies industry by revenues if the focus of the growing-ups was shifted from the animal side of the sex to the more human sensual and spiritual side of relationships. Even the prostitutes would be moving to better jobs probably still in the entertainment industry.

    No matter how hard it looks like, teach your children that there is more than just sex and orgasms in the men-women relationships, don't ever expect any help from the public schools, and good luck!

    Merry Christmas to all, even to the non-believers!

    I believe it is a very wise decision of you and your male colleagues to stop touching and hugging your female coworkers who have publicly asked you stop.

    You are correct, this is soooo funny and sad. Warning, my reasoning for the funny sadness is not your reasoning on why you think this is funny and sad.

    The implication that you are taking something away from your female coworkers is pure comedy (sad).

    How can they continue in their job with out your unwanted touching and hugs, god forbid you take that away from them.

    I gather from your post that the females in your workplace publicly stated they don't want your touches or hugs. This is pure speculation but they may not want your unsolicited touching and hugs in the workplace because they feel it is inappropriate, creepy, unwanted and unnecessary.

    It's a work a place go hug your mother.


    Really easy to be amused by this right. It kind of depends what you are talking about though. So your statement with out any details really does not mean anything. I mean I would agree with you if you were talking about a subject that was not offensive.

    Hopefully, the people handling the complaints could use some common sense to determine if the subject matter of the conversation is offensive.

    If it were my workplace my hope would be is the guy who is offended that the females at the workplace do not want his unwanted touches and hugs would not be in charge of the HR complaints department!

    Did I say that it was an outrage?
    Also I didn't say anything about hugs and touches. So you injecting your thoughts about something that I didn't say doesn't mean anything.
    I told a Polish joke once and someone was offended who over heard it.
    What do you call a Polish person with a really big hat? The Pope.
    Had to go and talk to the woman from HR with my union rep.
    I told her what I said, she laughed and said in these times you have to watch what you say even though you didn't tell it to that person. Nothing was done about this matter.
    I'm happy for you for being so PC in all that you do.
    I don't mean to offend you with this but.
    MERRY CHRISTMAS

    An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
    Sometimes if I'm in the Kearny Mesa area I will stop in to see my old boss.
    When I enter the office some of the women there will stand up and say hi Larry and give me a hug.
    These are the brave women. LOL

    You should be a harassment instructor. As a silly sidenote that you might enjoy.. they're now upset at us for not hugging them anymore. Imagine that.

    I totally agree with you, I changed the word outraged to amused. Especially for you that is the wrong adjective to use and I apologize for that. I think your a stand up guy and enjoy your contribution to the boards. You did not offend me me at all but I have offended you so my apology is sincere. Your joke was kind of funny too. Also please accept my apology for the appearance of lumping you in with the hugging and touching post. That was lazy of me and should have put it in a different thread. Merry Christmas to you as well and Happy New Year.

    The HR person you were sent to had common sense that why she laughed at your joke and nothing was done about the matter. That is exactly what should have happened in your case.

    You are too much... you have now convinced yourself that your female coworkers miss your touching and hugging since you have taken it away. LOL! I'm just yanking your cord man, all in good fun in the lounge. Merry Christmas to you!

    I am not for hugging in the workplace. Keep it professional. That goes 2 ways as well. If your a women and a huger I really don't want you hugging me or touching me other than a handshake.

    What if its your boss was a hugger. Man or women and it started out innocently enough with a normal hug. What if that hug started to linger a little bit. Would you be cool with that? What if you weren't but did not say anything. Now the hug starts to linger even more with a some extra squeeze.

    I am not saying you were the issue at all in your workplace but maybe you have a creeper in the midst that likes to deliver long inappropriate hugs with a pat on the back that sometimes slips south.

    Well.. my boss is a hugger. In fact, all three of my bosses are - one female and two males. And I love it. In my business, one tends to become closer/tighter to his or her coworkers than they often are their own families - considering we work 12-14 hr shifts together - and its all eye-opening work.

    Workplace relationships don't occur unless both parties are voluntarily heading that direction. In other words, it takes two to tango. The lines drawn in workplace sand are already put there.. you just have to respect the lines. I have no problem doing that.

    How do you feel about foul language in the workplace? We all take the same online continued education courses for workplace harassment - because the state says we have to. Those that I work with think of it like this.. "Why do we need to have annual harassment CE to teach us how to do something we already do so well?" And secretly, I love that too.:emoji_joy:

    And I agree with Larry.. this place is The Lounge. If someone has made the effort to come into The Lounge to read these comments and they somehow become miraculously offended, then they should simply stay out of The Lounge. Its as easy as that.

    The only offensive thing I've ever seen here is F bombs from our old pal and his little followers. There's no need for throwing F bombs. I get enough F bombs at work - and I throw them, too even tho' I probably shouldn't. And the physical threats that have occurred in The Lounge have no home here either. So the verbal jousting and posturing we all do is great - with me anyway. Keep it coming. Our one constant together is fishing. You can call me a clown in one breath and fish with me the next and I'm not bothered by any of it.
