This is the problem we’re now having.

That’s fair. I think it’s just harder than that to define what’s real. Say I tell you a story about my workplace, where someone made a joke about women. I view it as sexual harassment. You say it’s just a joke, and overall, the data show my industry is friendly toward women, hires women in key positions, and pays equally. If all this is true, is my situation still valid? Sometimes there is debate because basic facts don’t cover all the territory.
