    Have you ever been falsely accused of sexual harassment? How did you handle it?

    I've never been blatantly accused of such harassment, but I've had women try to get me to do what they want or control me or cause me to live in a hell/prison by implicitly making such claims, and now I'm wondering how to handle situations such as these. These are women that use such serious accusations as a means to get what they want, or to get attention, or to get revenge. Some of them make claims such as these because they are delusional/paranoid enough to think someone is looking at them, but the reality is that no one even knows they exist.

    The only safe course of action is to sexually harass every woman you encounter, just to be sure.

    My reaction exactly. It seems tailor-made for an Abe Simpson GIF.

    If you're worried about your ranking in the workplace social hierarchy... you shouldn't be. The only way obviously false accusations could make work more miserable is if everyone already disliked you to begin with, and they were looking for a reason to rationalize their irrational dislike. If that's the case, you probably don't want to be working with those people anyway.

    If you're worried about losing your job in spite of the fact that you're obviously surrounded by assholes, please note my preceding sentence. Also note: jobs are for suckers.

    My advice: If a party approaches you to ask about the situation, simply state that you have not knowingly done anything to make anyone uncomfortable. Further state that you're unsure of how that perception came about. Don't engage in speculation or attempts to micro-manage the perceptions of others through propaganda, as doing so tends to read as a manipulation tactic.

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.

    I'm saying "no" as in this is not a joke thread. I've never, to my knowledge, done anything that could be construed as sexual harassment. No sexual advances, no crude humor, no touching, etc.
