      We’re glad too, or else there would most likely be 1 more harassment lawsuit out there.

    Not. At. Work.

    Just like the phrase, “Act like you’re at church”. Do that.

    I’ll continue to post this in the comments of every sexual harassment related article. Not at work is not arguable or subjective. Just stop being gross at work, be gross in your own time.

    used to have a plaque hanging up that said, “Be sure brain is in gear before engaging mouth.”
    I guess the same could apply to executives sending emails…

    For an executive to send that email, and add others to it, is “WOW” worthy. You are risking throwing away your position, possibly your entire career, over a sexual donut joke? If I’m going to throw away my career, I at least want to stand up in a corporate meeting and say something to offend everyone equally. Make it worth it. Make it memorable and youtube worthy. A donut just doesn’t have that lifetime of memory feel to it….

      Wow! apparently your filter is pretty clogged. There are two kinds of abuse. Physical abuse and verbal abuse. Kudos to the company that suspended them. May make them think twice before they engage.

          You said, “The guy made a stupid joke using no vulgar language at all, aimed at no one, and some woman decided to do the Offended Outrage Dance.”

          From the article that you either didn’t read or didn’t comprehend accurately:

          “The male broker, a senior vice president, sent an email on Tuesday to multiple colleagues saying that he had brought in birthday doughnuts and that a female employee, mentioned by name, ‘enjoys a glazed ring.'”

          Note the phrase, “mentioned by name”, indicating that it was aimed at a particular person. Care to admit that you were wrong?

            Don’t forget the “no vulgar language” part either — preeeeeeety sure the definition of a “glazed ring” on urban dictionary will prove it’s a vulgar phrase

            While I agree, I didn’t bring that up because the words “glazed” and “donut” are not inherently vulgar and could be defended. Saying that the joke was aimed at no one is blatantly, indefensibly false without ambiguity.

            I was wrong. I skimmed the article.

            But my main point is the same: who gives a damn about some stupid guy making a dumb joke? It isn’t rape. It isn’t sexual assault. It isn’t a quid pro quo for sexual favors.

            Why do you or anyone else in the world care about some dumb guy making a dumb joke somewhere in the world that has nothing to do with you or anyone you know?

            Unless you want to do some Virtue Signaling. Can you imagine this being a story in China? France? Mexico? Of course not. We are becoming petty fools in America.

      Virtue signaling is good. If someone, you for example, has a long history of supporting sexual harassment, sexual assault, racism, dangerous anti-science positions, etc., by definition they have less virtue than people who don’t do that, and it should be pointed out, or signaled, so people know who the inferior people are and can remove them from society as much as possible, doing exactly what society is supposed to do instead of requiring the government to do it.

        Virtue Signaling is empty morality. It is spouting whatever is the approved PC opinion without making any effort whatsoever to change things. “I believe in Peace” is about as meaningful as any comments on this page decrying the horrors of one simple, stupid joke.

        Meanwhile, Virtue Signaling allows one to avoid taking responsibility for making a judgement about real suffering and injustice. V.S. allows people to feel good without doing a damn thing to solve any serious problem.
