that is cringy. and as a subordinate I am sure she was not certain what to do about it. if it were her first 'real' job it would be a little scary to potentially get fired for making waves and everyone knows HR is not there to help employees but to avoid lawsuits against the employer.

"Over the past year, I have found Attorney General Clarkson to be a wise and trusted legal advisor, a man of exceptional character, and a devoted husband and father," the governor told Trump. Before being appointed in late 2018, Clarkson had been a champion of Christian conservative views on social issues such as same-sex marriage and abortion."


Yup, another great CHRISTIAN man of character.  Just like all the rest.

They will never learn that if you want to be a skanky-ass then you do all your skanky-ass behaviors off of the texts and internets.

I can't take any more "staunch Christian crusader acts like creepy, slobbering dicksneeze when he thinks no one's looking" stories today.

What's next, posing with his pants undone with some friggin' legal aide while exclaiming that, no, really, the dildo was a prop?

"On several occasions, this person initiated a friendly hug when I came to her work place, and I reflexively gave her a peck on top of her head."

Yeah...I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree.  Reading this guy's texts is making me cringe so hard it's testing the bounds of my flexibility.  What I'm guessing happens is that he ambushes her in a public space at work and, at best, is like "where's my hug?!" with his arms open as he steps into her personal space.  And, then she's left with the choice to be like ew no and cause a scene in front of her co-workers that she has to explain, or to just swallow her discomfort, nervously laugh, and hope it's over soon.  That's basically what I've seen in person with other dudes who talk like he does when they're interacting with women...and that's with women their own age and without the professional power dynamic.

An attorney general with enough shame to resign?  Well, that's a small step upwards.

"I engaged in a series of text messages with this employee over approximately one month. The topics of these texts ranged from food, to movies, to books, to family, and all were conversational and positive, were reciprocal, and were, I believed, mutual."

Is it possible to give yourself a concussion from rolling your eyes too hard?

 Meanwhile, here in Texas, our attorney general has been under a felony indictment since the day he was elected and won't go the f*ck away.

Ladies, I hate to tell you, but men will take anything short of F*CK OFF YOU PERVERT as " conversational and positive, were reciprocal, and were, I believed, mutual." This poor woman was telling this jackoff in every way under the sun "leave me alone, I'm not interested" in the ways society has told us are the correct and polite ways to tell a man to leave us alone, we are not interested; and because she did not say F*CK OFF YOU PERVERT at each encounter, he was encouraged to keep texting her with his weird creepy bullshiat about wanting to come over and have a glass of wine ha ha ha.

It's sad that women have to make a choice between a job and their personal integrity; I'm glad I've been able to choose my bodily integrity every time; but ffs don't fall for the okey-doke that they were reciprocal or mutual. She was clearly scared and upset everytime this freak texted her, and she should be allowed to kick him in the nuts with steel-toed boots once each for every text he sent.

I wonder if men in general realize women are *scared* when men do this? I think a lot of men think women just get annoyed or something and don't realize it's frightening when a guy won't leave you alone. Or they blame the woman for somehow leading him on when the woman doesn't know if he'll bring a gun to work if she leaves him on read.

Probably not. I know the reason I've never had a problem telling men to knock that shiat off is that I am not scared of men. But a lot of women are.

There's also the 'math' involved, as some are just starting their careers, so the calculation is how much to put up with vs when it becomes time to take a very high risk of a spurned jerk flushing her career down the toilet and in too many cases, immediately causing things like defaulting on debts and homelessness, if the finances are tight.

When I say high risk, with guys such as in the article, think of Russian Roulette with hollow points in at least 4 of the 6 chambers.

There is a reason incest and rape are specifically mentioned in the abortion laws they propose. It takes out the legal wiggle angle. Abortions for the above have been granted for a few women. They don't win the fight so it is coded in.

Just to catch the rest of you up to speed on how utterly stupid this was, part of the shiat show that lead to this administration was former Governor Walker's running mate stepping down within a month is the election because of an inappropriate private conversation he had with a collogue.

I've always wondered what the thought process inside these guys' heads looks like. I really don't understand why they 1) think that sort of relentless attention is okay, and 2) why they think girls young enough to be their daughter don't have better options.

its a cliche but no less true for that: "men are afraid women will laugh at them, women are afraid men will kill them"
