THE SCARIEST SEXUAL HARASSMENT: He and she filed lawsuits! These are the two versions of the same event (PHOTO)
Harmless licking of the ice cream can cause a problem. A sexual problem. A girl has sued a colleague for sexual harassment. And the colleague filed the same lawsuit against her. These are the two versions of the same event
It turned out that harmless licking of the ice cream can cause a problem. A sexual problem. Namely, one woman from Belgrade had to sue her colleague for sexual harassment because of the ice cream. But at the same time, she received a lawsuit because of the way she liked ice cream and she performed sexual harassment.
In her statement for Telegraf, she is describing the event:
- The colleague has been going with me to the lunch break for weeks now. We often consulted about work tasks and we became very close. One moment, during a break, I enjoyed the icy treat, he was watching me and he commented: "Ohhh, you are licking that ice cream really well". I didn't respond. I immediately understood the ambiguous message of the compliment, I have bitten the rest of ice cream, turned around and I went to the director of the company and I filed a lawsuit against the colleague for sexual harassment.
He is describing the event in the statement for Telegraf:
- The colleague and I went to have lunch together for a long time. We are great working together and we grew very close, we tell each other details from our personal lives. One moment, during the break, I turned towards her and I saw her eating the ice cream. She raised her eyes but she pretended that she doesn't notice me watching her, and then she went with her tongue from the bottom to the top of the ice cream. She looked at me again with a gentle smile. I was confused and I said: "Ohhh, you are licking that ice cream really well". She didn't respond, she has bitten the rest of the ice cream in an equally provocative way, and I immediately understood the ambiguous message of the way she was eating ice cream. Sometime later I went to the director of the company and I filed a lawsuit against the colleague for sexual harassment.
Some people think that she is right, the others think differently, so we thought that it is the best to ask the expert on this.
- If someone looks rudely at your cleavage, that that is disturbing because it is a nonverbal message which says that he wants you. If someone takes a glimpse while listening to you, then it's not harassment. It's different with jokes. They don't qualify as harassment unless the other side doesn't want to take them as a joke or they strictly say that they don't want to listen to them. However, every kind of sexual allusions (and ice cream talk is precisely that) qualifies under sexual harassment, stated the psychologist Aleksandar Sibul.
The key question remains - WHO WAS SEXUALLY HARASSED HERE?
