(Boing Boing)   Army's anti-sexual harassment video was apparently made in the 1970s, and it looks more like outtakes from cheesy '70s porn than '70s porn does (video, SFW)   (boingboing.net) divider line 38

If it was made in the '70's, it was probably film, not video.

"Hey, if you two chicks would like to get knocked up, John and I would be glad to help!"

The most amazing thing about that line is that it didn't work.  I would think, with lines like that, the ladies would be lining up for these silver-tongued devils.

If it meant getting out of a deployment the "ladies" would be more than willing to get knocked up.

You would not believe the farked up sexual harassment stories I've heard out of the Army.

In all seriousness, my response to more than a few of them was, "uh, no, that shiat would get you shot in the Corps."

i was in the Nav' juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust after the Tailhook scandal, and so instead of doing things like, ohh, PROTECTING THE DAMN COUNTRY, the first 1-2 years of my enlistment consisted of about weekly anti-sexual harrassment training (or "indoc", as training was called).

The fun part was we had to shoot videos for these sessions, so there is a VHS tape or 5 of a young me in uniform, getting to (a) sexually harass females and unfortubaly (b) getting sexually harassed by others.  it was stupid.  one i recall dimly was me continuously asking out a coworker over her repeated "nos" and "you're making me uncomfrotable".  we kept cracking up during "shooting" so we had to do like, 8 takes.  her name was Jenny and i later learned she apparently queefed like a motherfarker, as my boy Jeff used to crush it on the reg.

anyways, those videos were stupid.  i'd love to see me "acting" again.

I was in the USAF in the 70s. We had two girls who went to my dojo for "sexual harassment training" as they liked to call it. They were fast. I liked them.

The Army actually is a pretty sweet deal with the GI Bill, free room and board, and immunity from most sexual assault convictions.

They have newer videos but they're still pretty bad. And you have to watch it every year.

A company I used to work for back in the early 2000s was still using the VHS sexual harassment tapes that were made in the eighties. It was all pencil thin ties and big hair.

"What Sexual Harris meant"


Too obscure?

That would have been made in the late seventies or very early 80s - as demonstrated by the rank insignia:
   Officer shoulder-loops were green (changed to black in the late 80s)
   Pin-on NCO rank insignia on the collar (changed to shoulder loops in the early or mid 80s).

If you watch it to the end it links to a video of hot Israeli Army girls.

/best part of the video

I was in Army basic training in the late '70s, and in one of the first mixed gender companies. We were required to attend a four-hour block of instruction on rape prevention. This was the only class given that was segregated. The female platoon was instructed on how to prevent rape, and what to do in the event of rape, while the men were given four hours of instruction on how to beat the rap. Seriously.

I was a Army Combat Engineer back in the 80s in a series of Infantry divisions.  There weren't a whole lot of women around.  I didn't like it much at the time, because I like women, but sometimes I think that we might have just had it easier, workplace wise.

When I was stationed out at the MCAGCC (Marine Core Air Ground Combat Center) we had a lot of sexual harassment issues going on. Luckily, I was not involved in any that involved other men.

I took a lot of military training in the 1970s and it was always presented on televisions. Video tape has been around since 1951.

Yikes. That one really sent the message home, though. I'm not even in the Navy, and now I'm very certain I'll have the utmost respect for LOX.

However, I could totally see the "have your ass" part coming.

But even then you had to take those stupid courses.  When I brought up the fact that  I did not work with women-none in my unit or MOS and questioned the need for my attendance the Civilian instructor was less than pleased.

I'm a civil service engineer for the Army. Either this was one of the most inspired low-key pranks ever pulled, or someone was seriously uninformed about the content of our latest sexual assault prevention class. They brought in a young man and woman who gave an in depth interactive lecture about the differences between date rape and 'hooking up.' I suspect that the intended audience was soldiers recently out of boot camp, but the reactions from the mostly Bible belt, red state, middle-age-and-up-engineers-with-kids-in-college audience was comedy gold.

CSB:
I remember sexual harassment training. I walked into the meeting, they said that we were going to watch a video on sexual harassment, then they hit play. I wasn't the only one that saw ebaums world at the bottom corner, but we all kept quiet until we couldn't hold in the laughter.

Showed the coworkers this video today. What a riot.

/why yes, our managers are bad at their jobs
