Idk if shes being harassed but im sure she got some nasty comments from people. As far as jocks they tend to think they are better then anyone else (cheerleaders also) & many worship them. Go figure!

She's laying low....................ironic choice of words.

She's gotta live with it now.
And today, companies are very sensitive about their image.

A few years ago, at a football game after it had snowed, the fans were upset by how terrible the home team did. So some threw snowballs onto the field. The local newspaper got a picture of one guy doing it (even though hundreds of people were doing it) and that guy got fired from his job. He wasn't "projecting a corporate image". Was he at work? No. Did he play hooky from work? No.

And yes today, companies are paying people to scour facebook, tweeter or whatever those things are called for anything that may give a negative appearance for the company. If they find it, you can bet that person is going to not be there much longer.

And tell everyone about my secret hopes and desires??? Vagina story is as far as I'm willing to go.
Besides, it would be a pretty short one.

I don't have an exact quote but one of the clients I work for as an independent contractor, when I sign my contract every year, there is now a clause in the contract about watching what you say on any social networking sites that is job related or posting pictures from work events and doing such could result in dismissal.

Everyone has issues. Women who want to sleep only with men who are very special to them have "issues" you could say. Their issues are just quite different than women who lurk in the bar once or twice a week going home with someone or another. And their issues are quite different than rock star or sports star groupies whose issues involve some sort of celebrity fetish.

Men all have issues of one kind or another also. Some want a life partner who hasn't slept with half the town, that's their issue.

Good for her. Even though it was never meant to go further than her friends, it’s about time women stopped hiding. Men brag about their sexual conquests all the time.

You go girl!!!
How is this a "you go girl" type of situation???

Haven't you been paying attention? Here, let me break it down for you:

Men are pigs and jerks, and to get back at them for their piggish jerkiness, many women have decided to BECOME men in the name of "enlightenment", thereby proving they're capable of anything men are, even if that capability is disgusting, trashy behaviour.

Come on, YOU say it now:


You GO, girl! You GO!!!
