THE 7 COMMANDMENTS OF SEXUAL HARRASMENT

For all those men out there who seem confused, let’s clear it up shall we?

THOU SHALT NOT TOUCH
You are not my friend or a family member; you really have no need therefore, to come into contact with my bottom or actually, any other part of me at all.

THOU SHALT NOT LEER
‘They’ may say looking is okay ‘as long as you don’t touch’, but leering is off-the-charts annoying and offensive. A beat longer than a glance and your time is up.

THOU SHALT NOT REFER
To any part of my body at any time. It is not on the ‘cleared for discussion’ list. Nor are my outfits or my dress sense. Discuss my thoughts, my feelings and my work, sure.

THOU SHALT NOT PRY
I don’t want to discuss my boyfriend/husband/dating scene with you. Nor do you need to know what I am doing tonight.

THOU SHALT NOT OVERSHARE
Likewise, I have absolutely no interest in hearing about your private life, your sexual prowess or your fantasies.

THOU SHALT NOT NICKNAME
Do not come up with an offensive but ‘loveable’ nickname for me. I will not answer to ‘sweetheart’, ‘darling’, ‘love’ or ‘angel-face.’

THOU SHALT NOT SUGGEST
Do not ever suggest or assume that I would be interested in getting with you because you have a superior position or some sort of power over whoever. Integrity is a cool quirk, get some. I have plenty. Get your kicks the normal way like everyone else and let me do my job and prove myself the right way.
