It’s not that you have to wear your heart on your sleeve; it’s just that you have to be aware of it and have an eye on it. I’ve never been good at it! If you’re a girl who has been the brunt of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, violence, bullying and other inappropriate behavior as a girl, you’ll know what I mean. We have to be very aware of this and do it. The more of us who are able to do that the better.
So, while I don’t believe that most men who come into office are doing it on purpose (I think it’s probably just that the women there don’t like women or even realize that they can be), it’s not just because I have zero power in the situation. It’s also because of the environment they are placed in.
Most of us in office were not raised to believe in being respectful to women. There are plenty of guys at work who are going to say and do things to cause problems for a woman and it’s because it seems like that’s the way that things are. There is a very strong gender hierarchy at the office.
Let me give you an example, because I get it.
When someone on your team gets into it with another woman they might say something that is mean to get their way or use other disrespectful words that will be immediately taken out on you. They might make jokes about what your body is, that your boyfriend is your cousin and so on and so forth. Or they may hit on you or make unwanted sexual advances to you. What you don’t see is that it’s because this person just doesn’t know how to behave and behave sensibly. He’s probably not used to how they were treated when they weren’t the one doing the harassment. Even though it might not feel like a real issue, to them it feels like it does. That’s why they were treated the way they were.
As I’ve said before, I think for guys it’s a natural thing to react to. The guys in office who do the worst stuff are guys that feel like they can get away with these things because they know that they are strong guys and that women are
