Since it is unlikely John has experienced unwanted touching in the workplace his blithe comment…
Neale Orinick

Neale Orinick Quite the opposite. ‘Unwanted touching’ was mentioned in the middle of an article as a standard part of office life for a woman.

It stuck out, because it should not be normalized in any way; it’s hideous, and a criminal offence. Just as you mention in your comment, many people are fearful about speaking out.

My comment was ‘if you’re experiencing unwanted touching, get a lawyer’. Yes. Speak up. It’s not ok. And if you don’t get results, sue. No-one should have to put up with that shit.
