QUOTE=DRob4JC;50378001]NFL Harassment Suit Alleges Groping by Top Executive, Ex-Players

A former executive producer at the National Football League’s TV network and ex-players including Marshall Faulk and Heath Evans allegedly groped and made sexually explicit comments to female colleague Jami Cantor, according to an amended complaint by Cantor, a former employee.

...
She said she was also sexually harassed by on-air talent. Faulk, who’s an NFL Network analyst, would ask Cantor “deeply personal and invasive questions” about her sex life and fondled her breasts and groped her behind, according to the complaint.


Ike Taylor, Donovan McNabb are also included in the suspensions in the abuse against Cantor. Warren Sapp was included in this as well.

This topic is way over your head. You should consider not commenting anymore in this thread.

Groping is a "dick joke"? Exposing yourself to a woman is a "dick joke"?

My only question is how in the world this woman could have waited so long to bring this to light? How could you not go to a legal authority much sooner? Some of this stuff is way beyond just language. And so much of it, that it would have had to have occurred over a long time period.

I am trying just to keep this factual and not ask to many questions - just to keep this open for further information.

I have questions as well - but I am not asking them here.

Let's see..... she would have been on her own against several very powerful dudes before the #metoo business started. Now in today's climate she has a reasonable shot of people believing her and her career not being ruined.

You must not have read my other post. (Which said exactly what your post did.)

So no. Groping isn't a "d*ck joke" & Exposing oneself to a woman is something I don't get. What's the point? (& no, it's not a joke either).

I'll comment wherever I want.

I agree but still find it shocking. I mean the majority of this reported behavior is out of the ball park of even inappropriate behavior. And from so many different men. Hopefully more women now will feel the power to speak up immediately.

This woman is not calling a lawyer because of dick jokes so I just don't see the need for your comment.

But if she was a wardrobe or hairstyle person (or a maid or a waitress or any other type of support person), the men should show respect & not be pigs.


Also in reading further, what is with all these people taking pictures of their privates & sending them out? Is this a 2017 (or 20teens) thing? I don't get it. & obviously sending them to a 51 y/o women is out of line.
.
So.....

Sexual harassment is OK IF you are a "peer" female. (but there should be no such thing as a "peer" female according to you)

Sexual harassment is NOT OK if the females are "support types" i.e. subservient women who "know their place"

THAT your argument in a nutshell????

And the allegations made by this woman are not about "tender ears" and "bantering" and "cutting up"

Dude, like WHAT century are you living in....seriously.....

The attitudes you have so clearly expressed are EXACTLY why so many men are being called out in all areas of public life...
