It’s been over 30 years, but I still remember the day Jenny Talbot caught me staring at her boobs.
Jenny and I sat next to each other in a couple of classes. We weren’t exactly friends, but friendly; she helped me in math, I helped her in social studies. One day, Jenny and I were working together on a project, our desks and bodies facing. Though she usually wore sweaters, this spring day she wore just a V-neck T-shirt. When she bent over, I could see her breasts encased in her white, frilly bra. I was not quite 14, and in a near constant state of arousal; the sight of a bra strap was, frequently, enough to produce an erection. With Jenny distracted by her work, I had a free close-up view of the kind I’d rarely had. So I stared. Keep reading »
Despite about a million sexual harassment lawsuits and looming bankruptcy, Dov Charney and American Apparel will be able to continue on for a little longer, thanks to a cash infusion. The T-shirt and crop-top company will get anywhere between $15 and $43 million over the next six months. “Dov is an eccentric, and he’s being butchered by investors and the press,” said Roy Sebag of Essentia Equity, one of several lenders who is helping to bail out the company. In the meantime, if you’re not sure about throwing your hard-earned cash at a man who may or may not have requested sexual favors from his female underlings but are in dire need of a new v-neck, check out what LAmade has to offer.

God knows a sexy piece of ass like me can’t walk down the street without all sorts of hootin’ and hollerin’. Isn’t that life, ladies? But with this kick-ass “catcaller form” from online magazine The Riot, you can get to the bottom of just why that gentleman over there is, uh, yelling at your bottom. Just prepare to be called a c**t, bitch or whore in the process. Sigh. Street harassment totally sucks. [Shlooby Kitten via The Riot] Keep reading »
Apparently one Brit didn’t want to snog an overaggressive coworker — and now he’s suing. Meanwhile this spat across the pond is changing our views on sexual harassment.
When most people conjure up an image of sexual harrassment, usually they picture a female victim being objectified by a male aggressor. But statistics tell us that men are two-fifths of sexual harassment victims — and British retail worker Konstantinos Kalomoiris says he numbers among them.
Kalomoiris alleges that Bianca Revrenna, his coworker at British department store John Lewis regularly sexually harassed him while on the job. According to Kalomoris, Revrenna repeatedly squeezed his butt. Read more… Keep reading »
Most inappropriate Christmas card ever: the boss of a Swedish taxi company emailed holiday greetings to his staff featuring pictures of the company’s secretaries’ bottoms as they bent over in g-strings. According to IceNews, the Orebo taxi boss asked employees to match the secretary to the ass depicted in the photo in a multiple-choice quiz.”We couldn’t believe it. It was not even funny,” a female employee told Swedish newspaper, Nerikes Allehanda. The boss is now being investigated for sexism by the transport workers’ union, who first learned of the email after Christmas (although I wonder if the meaning of “sexism” and “sexual harassment” were lost in translation). And I’m sure you’ll be shocked — shocked! — to hear this guy has allegedly been accused of inappropriate behavior in the past. Try to keep your “Secretary” fantasies out of the office, people.

After two decades of service, the six-foot-high, 10-foot-wide mirror covering our living room wall started falling down on Thanksgiving Day. It came with the house, a colonial in Whitestone, Queens, which my parents bought when I was born. I was 23 and about to drive to LaGuardia Airport to pick up Tim, my soldier boyfriend of two years. He was spending the holiday with me after being stationed at Fort Benning, Georgia, for the past three months.
I was in my attic bedroom putting on my “Welcome Home” outfit — black stockings, boots, a checkered skirt, and a fitted black sweater — when I heard Mom scream. I took the steps two at a time to find her and my 18-year-old brother holding the mirror up, their four hands, strained faces, and bodies looking longer in their slanted reflections. Keep reading »
Uh oh. We’ve heard this story before. Amy-Erin Blakely of Orlando, Florida, filed a sexual harassment lawsuit claiming she was fired from her job at The Devereux Foundation for complaining that managers made comments about her big breasts. Blakely also said she was told that her co-workers couldn’t concentrate in meetings because her boobs were such a distraction and that someone in management “talked about how large her breasts were and that she needed to ‘hide them,’” said her lawyer, Gloria Allred. Worst of all, she alleged that she was told by a manager she would not be promoted above her position as assistant executive director because she was “too sensual”! Keep reading »
