    This was years ago. There was a restaurant I used to go to where the waitress seemed to intentionally lean on my back and shoulders when placing food or drinks on the table as well as when picking items up. The fact she was very top heavy made it stand out.

    No pun intended...

    Well, of course you should expect that at Hooters!

    There are only two such comments, Spooky. One is complimentary and fun and makes that lady smile.

    The other sounds like she is a side of beef.

    Anyone with a brain over the age of 8 can tell the difference.

    No. There is no/far less tolerance for sexist objectifying of women. Not exactly a loss, is it?

    If you wouldn't say it TO her, don't say it ABOUT her.

    Easey-peasey.

    Bless his heart! That was the right thing to do -- although no crime had occurred.

    And you hated it didn't you? lol Its funny how a lot of men don't mind it at all. My son had a female server sit on his lap and touching his hair.. He and his buddies love it. Yet for many females if a male server came over and sat on their lap and touched their hair it would result in a lawsuit!
    Thanks from allegoricalfact, Jets and Chief

    Ya. That most likely was deliberate. It is a complex subject because...lots of reasons...it is sexist of a woman to move into a man's personal space like that without his consent.

    Doesn't matter. He might consent every day for a year and then not.

    He has as much right to bodily integrity and security as anyone else.

    We have all watched scenes in movies where the guys prank their buddy with a stripper and laugh at his horror.

    Why is that funny?

    Don't fucking touch me until I say you may. Ever.

    Ha, I was sexually harassed by my gay manager, I just dealt with it. Was extremely awkward, several weeks before he became our store manager, another manager said he came in once and thought I was cute (OK, didn't need to know that). Then he became the manager, and he was kind of an annoying person to begin with, anyway, first day I worked for him he comes running up to greet me all cheery and such (again, awkward). And would make comments to other people about me, or would offer to fix my belt (why you looking at my ass).

    Anyway, after the initial awkwardness I was fine with it
    Thanks from Madeline

    But guys love it. I would venture a guess if you could hold some sort of candid camera study where you had a female walk in and squeeze 20 guys butts, few would be upset. Certainly none would file a harassment claim. Would the same be true if it were reversed? I think it just shows how men and women view physical contact very differently.

    Oh I agree, but I think that's why men don't quite understand sexual harassment. They have a different perspective on it from the get go.
