  • Sometimes people accept certain behaviours from certain people and sometimes the exact same behaviour would be considered harassment or assault from other people. This grey area is not worth ruining a persons life.

  • I have no idea on why anyone would be quiet about assault unless your lying. Fuck the job, the higher ups etc. If you are a man or woman who has been harassed, assaulted etc. They need to be held accountable for their actions like you would be if you …ohhh….i dunno did something like press the wrong button?
