When did I say I was an MRA? I'm a traditionalist Catholic. We don't have much in common.

All I'm saying is the sea of degeneracy in which these people are wallowing which results in a man begging a strange woman for sex over email started long before "but he was her boss."

That was like 90% of the country at the time. The rest was unhappy because race not sex, but it's great how you try to conflate the "struggles" of white women, the most privileged creatures to ever walk the earth, with those of the 2nd and 3rd generation offspring of slaves.

You think this sort of behaviour happened before? Then, for the good of humanity, can you share the secret to faster-than-light travel because you clearly hail from a different planet.

No I'm saying we had many, many cultural mores to prevent this kind of shit from happening. Just off the top of my head we had:

1. Preferences against women (of any quality) in the workplace.
2. Preferences against casual intercourse.
3. Preferences against unmarried men and women being alone together.
4. Shame in being involved in a non-monogamous relationship.
5. Incredible shame in having people know about your involvement in an non-monogamous relationship.

Of the 5 rules I listed, are there any that you like or agree with? We have cultural rules like this in place because otherwise a not insignificant number of men will act like the man in the article. You knock out every cultural safeguard to prevent this kind of behavior and then you're shocked when this behavior occurs because the guy didn't care about the one rule you do care about.

Is there something special about the 1950s which makes them some sort of high point?

Men and women were happier then. That was before feminism ruined both and "freed" women from being chained to the stove so they could be chained to the call center desk instead.

As long as they are both OK with it, whats YOUR problem?

You're right about these desires being "natural." In Victorian England fucking around meant death by syphilis. Syphilis is natural, too, so what's your problem with it?!

My problem with this story is that it exists. Install social mores about how people have sex that, in addition to other benefits, prevent nice women from being propositioned disrespectfully. Remove social mores because "OH MY GOD WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM!?!" Be shocked when nice women are propositioned disrespectfully.

You not getting ANY?

I'm a traditionalist Catholic with a good job and a beautiful blonde wife who stays home, takes care of our kids, and cooks me amazing dinners. My sex life is none of your business.

Actually I blame feminism/leftism in general, which gave everyone involved the idea that any of this shit was okay and would not result in exactly these problems.

People are animals. So society invents moral codes and customs to tame their animal behavior, prevent conflict, and channel their bad impulses into productive activity. Then short-sighted idiots come along and say "ugh, this is terrible! How dare you tell me what to do I can do whatever I want!" Enough short-sighted idiots go along with this, people stop following the rules, and then start crying when human animals act like animals. "Why are people acting like this!" Because they're people. We had rules to stop this behavior from occurring but you didn't like them, so now you get shit behavior. Start following the rules designed to prevent shit behavior and the shit behavior will stop.

You also ought to get over your puritanical moralizing about monogamy. It's not for everyone.

By what right did you call the guy a scumbag? You ought to get over your puritanical moralizing about begging subordinates for sex. It's not for everyone.

I wish this story could be broadcast to the people of the 1950s. "A company is getting ruined because female engineers are getting harassed by a pervert? Okay, first off, what the fuck are 'female engineers?' We don't have enough male engineers? Why aren't they home taking care of their kids instead of slaving at some stupid company for perverts? They wouldn't be getting harassed then now would they? Okay, okay, so now about this pervert, why doesn't he just have his own woman? Wait he does? Okay so he's cheating on her why what a piece of...hold on an 'open relationship?' She's having sex with other men...and he knows about now he's hitting on everything in a skirt...THIS IS WHY WE HAVE RULES GODDAMNIT!!!" and they'd kill every feminist on sight and we wouldn't have these problems.

Except the company president was the alpha. Company president. Has money. Is banging Hooters girls. Nobody's complaining about him.

In this story, though, it's our boy's wife who's got no problem finding fresh cocks to hop. He, however, seems to be begging every woman in sight...and failing. They only report to HR when it's Fred Armisen, not Tom Brady hitting on them.

Men value women differently than women value men. I saw something from Tinder that like 20% of the men on Tinder are hooking up with 80% of the women. And there was an OK Cupid study that when asked to rank women as above or below average, men ranked 50% of the women above average, and 50% of the women below average. The women ranked 80% of the men "below average." Hmmmm.

It really does boggle my mind that people haven't figured out that the whole system of capitalism might as well be designed to create opportunities for abuse.

It boggles my mind that people haven't figured out capitalism is the only system that introduces voluntary behavior such that one even has a hope of avoiding abuse. At least in a capitalist system when you're harassed you can quit, and inform others, and the business suffers. There's some kind of financial incentive to avoid tolerating harassment. Propensity for abuse is inherent to humanity, not the economic system.

What happens when you're sexually harassed by your commie party official? Better put out or it's gulag for you, comrade.

If you read further in the article, they were lying about the first offense. Once she started talking to the other women engineers several had already reported him before this incident, and then new hires got the same treatment. Apparently every time he begged for sex it was the first time.
