So, what are we expected to think about this?

More than a quarter of British men think sexual jokes and stories are acceptable in the workplace, an academic study has found.

A survey of more than 20,000 people in 27 countries was carried out to mark International Women’s Day.

It found that 28% of men thought that stories of a sexual nature were acceptable in work settings, compared with 16% of women.

Well done lads, keeping a sense of humour under the oppressions of modern capitalism?

  1. What absolute shite and who cares–outside of Marxist scum agitators– anyway?

    This claim shows one thing: you can’t win a defensive war. The endless drip, drip out of the marxist arsehole will never stop until it is stopped.

    Any UK PM now needs a well-formulated anti-socialist plan to roll red shite back in all areas.

    Kill them before they kill us.

  2. Key data point missing is whether those blokes telling dirty jokes in a mixed or male only environment.

  3. Can someone please post the link on Samizdata as I can’t get on there anymore because their spam system keeps quoting some crap about “Captcha” –which the site doesn’t use anyway.

    Thanks

  4. And a comparison survey would be helpful: how many women think remarks and jokes about “useless men” are acceptable?
    A woman in my office put up a poster “Grow your own dope – plant a man!”. Nothing was said, it stayed up.

  5. Have they tried working in a modern public sector office? I work in GP Practices, 70%+ female, sexual innuendo everywhere.

  6. Meaningless figure without a comparator. Is this up or down on last year?

    Anyway, the problem with sexual banter isn’t the girls. It’s the woke blokes white-knighting for them who report you to HR.

  7. The real problem with sexual jokes is that most of them aren’t remotely funny. But many women don’t find jokes funny anyway.

  8. ‘More than a quarter of British men think sexual jokes and stories are acceptable in the workplace’

    Three quarters lie.

  9. With jokes there’s a range from innuendo to outright filthy so without specifying that how meaningful can the answer be

  10. Assuming that it is the same survey, the BBC’s coverage headlined the 28% as being “nearly a third”. My reaction (naively reading “nearly a third as 32%”) was to sum the 68% / 2 = 34% men with the 84% / 2 = 42% women and find that in the “no”-camp women outnumbered men by a mere 55% to 45%. The true figures make it even closer of course – but then “our mission is to inform”!

    Exactly. An all female environment (HR Dept) is full of sexual jokes and stories

    Men ‘jokes’ tend to be “She’s hot” or “Nice tits”, then back to serious stuff

    Women “He’s a hunk, but…”; Yes, but; His hair; Wrong shirt; Piers Brosnam……

    Those mug shots are just oozing with “diversity” aren’t they?

    I have to imagine there was a sinking feeling as they looked at the data and realized their policies resulted in the rape of thousands of woman and children

    Never Forget: Brown & Jacqui Smith ordered police to ignore RoP gangs raping children

    They must expect full-blown race riots and lynchings over this. What other legitimate claim could they have to it being “not in the public interest” to release their findings, other than the findings being so damning that they expect people to drive RoPs out?

  13. I have to imagine there was a sinking feeling as they looked at the data and realized their policies resulted in the rape of thousands of woman and children

    Personally I doubt there was even a flicker of emotion.
