Have any of you guys ever been sexually harassed at work. If yes did you do anything about it, if not why not?

When I was in my early twenties I started dating a girl I worked with and another female manager would always make comments about it. Like if we were late, she would insinuate that it was because we were probably fucking or something. It was sorta awkward but after a while I would say shit like, "we would have been later than ten minutes, if that were the case." I can see how it would bother a female employee more if a male manager would say stuff like that to her. To me, I knew it was wrong but it wasn't a big deal. Another time a female coworker ran her nails across my bulge as she walked by when I was on a rolling ladder reaching for some clothes, that was kinda forward. Again, I guess it doesn't bother guys as much. They were also attractive so I'm sure that factored in as well.

I think it used to be called 'flirting' when I was young and hot enough to attract that kind of attention and I certainly did not mind it. The more mature ladies were always getting a kick out of making me blush and I even got propositioned a few times - especially at Xmas parties. Aah, good days.

Political correctness seems to have killed all that off. (release the dogs!!)

Yes, but i was never really offended by it, so i din't see a need to take any course action. If one were going to file a harassment complaint in the workplace, i suggest that one would have some solid evidence and credible witnesses. Pretty serious grievance, you don't want to make yourself look like an idiot.
