"It's only sexual harrassment if your boss is ugly." Thus spoke casting agent "Chrissy, 26" in the latest issue of listings weekly Time Out New York, a sentiment which made us smile in agreement to ourselves before we resumed feeling guilty about being terrible feminists. But then! We picked up the latest issue of our favorite womanly magazine, Psychology Today, and read: Sexual harassment just proves a boss is totally about the equal rights! As the story explains, what we think of as the "patriarchy" is just a bunch of bossmen so horny they'll do whatever they can to get you to fuck them. But what if they get all nasty and degrading about it? It's just a sign of their respect. "Long before women entered the labor force, men subjected each other to such abusive, intimidating and degrading treatment." Dude! We're in a boy's club!
