Well, no, not really

One in three UN workers say they have been sexually harassed in past two years
UN secretary general Antonio Guterres says ‘we still have a long way to go before we are able to openly discuss sexual harassment’

Seem to be discussing it just fine. It’s that you’re still doing it that’s the problem, isn’t it?

  1. As most countries in the UN have cultures in which what Westerners would deem robust sexual harassment , is regarded as normal, why is anyone surprised?

  2. Since the UN’s the very pillar of equality, one presumes this sexual harassment of one-in-three applies to men as well as women? Career at the organisation would seem to be the ideal opportunity for any energetic young fellow.

  3. If they mix with RoP and general third worlders it is hardly surprising is it. And most NGO scandals have WOMI western scum diddling the natives rather than vice versa anyway.

    If it is in-house it just what leftist scum are really like –either as sex pests or as malicious liars telling tall tales about non-existent Me-Me-Me Too bollocks.

    Either way they are shot through with scum if not 99 % scum to begin with.

  4. long way to go before we are able to openly discuss sexual harassment

    This phrase doesn’t mean what it says. It means that the speaker thinks the incidence is far higher – say 99.9% sue to toxic masculinity and that the reason this is not reported is because we are unable to openly discuss sexual harassment.

    We’ve had this before. When Susannah Hoff Summers examined the data supporting the claim that 1 in 3 woman at US colleges had been raped she found for instance, that woman who declared they had not been raped but had had sex which they later regretted were still classed as rape victims.

  5. One in three UN workers say they have been sexually harassed in past two years.

    Evidently some UN officials are auditioning for second careers at NBC.

  6. Only 1 in 3 sexually harassed at one of the world’s most woke, sjw hand-wringers organisation?

    Given calling someone a “stupid woman” or saying “That’s a nice dress, looks good on you” is sexually harassment they’re not trying hard enough.

    More Gillette razors needed at UN?

  7. The Guardian article is based on extrapolating from the 17.2% who responded to a poll, so its more like 6% as those who have been subjected to sexual harassment are very likely to respond and those who haven’t are unlikely to bother. The 10% who replied “No, I haven’t been sexually harassed is pretty much in line with the normal response rate to such polls.
    One also notes the claim that two out of three harassers are male without saying what proportion of the harassed were male, suggesting to my cynical mind that a significant number of GAYs were included in that figure.
