Voluntarily surrendering power is a rare phenomenon in our species. This is what makes the extreme, paralyzing anti-harassment policies so uniquely disturbing.
How is it that men have decided to put their balls in a can?
Why do men leave their workplace welfare at the mercy of those who can falsely accuse them of harassment at any time out of spite, jealousy, for attention, or for any other irrational, ill intended reason?
And lastly and arguably and most importantly – why haven’t men created a meaningful recourse to discourage false accusations and punish those who try to ruin others’ lives and reputation?
Men must have become puppies that don’t quite realize how damaging this path is to our workplace dynamic, morale and motivation.
