COLUMBIA, Mo. If a man asks a woman out on a date, and he is taller than her, can that be considered "sexual harassment"? According to a former University of Missouri vice chancellor, the answer is yes.
Court documents filed by a black male student (John Doe) at Mizzou quote testimony by the former official, but the university calls Doe's claims "inaccurate" and "out of context". Doe was suspended from the University of Missouri for four years due to findings from a Title IX case is suing the school for racial and sexual discrimination. School officials ruled that Doe was guilty of sexual harassment because his size and gender gave him "power" over a female he pursued romantically.
The lawsuit, originally filed last December, says that in two other very similar Title IX investigations, the university gave much lesser punishments to two white students.
Court documents say that Doe pursued a female dance instructor romantically for several months, sending her 30 messages on Facebook. It alleges that the woman did not initially tell Doe that she was not interested, but after several messages she told him that she was not interested in any kind of romantic relationship. The Title IX investigation that was launched after the woman went to her supervisor about Doe...
In a deposition filed by Doe's attorneys, the woman who was Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs at the time of the investigation testified that she believes a man asking a woman out for a date more than once if the woman has previously turned him down is an 'unwanted sexual advance'. She also testified that Doe's actions could be considered sexual harassment because of his large size...
The investigator also noted that Doe expressed concern over how dance instructors treated males. She wrote: When I met with [Doe], he asserted that there was gossip about him within the Rec Center and stated that he feels hurt. He claimed that he did not understand what he did to upset people. He expressed frustration at not being selected to be an employee at the Rec Center. He also expressed frustration that the...instructors either assume male customers are gay or that they are there to prey upon women.
If it is harassment for a tall guy to ask out a shorter woman, what about a tall lesbian hitting on a shorter coed?
So, all men should be looking for a Plautia Urgulanilla who became the wife of Claudius?
Government official imposing tyranny is what 2A was made to solve.
The answer is to avoid all women.
Almost all men want shorter women. Almost all women want taller men.
The idiot ‘expert’ is using both male and female natural preferences to create male sexual harassers where there are none.
Stop dealing with women entirely when its avoidable. Let em live with their cats. Otherwise the current gynocentric system and unrestrained women will use you as a resource and destroy you. And the system will applaud them for doing so. No repercussions or negative consequences for them. The social system has been set up to reward them for destroying men, guilty or not. And they dont care and the system doesnt care if innocent men, who are the majority accused, are destroyed. They do not care.
Dont play the game in the first place.
Just another attempt by Mizzou to halt its declining enrollment. /sarc
No wonder they had to close 4 dorms. I’m hoping after 2 years of Pelosi the public will wise up. If not we are so screwed
What about a guy with fast hands? That could be an unfair advantage over a more hamfisted girl in a fight.
MGTOW adherent, I presume?
They chose being racists and slapped down the black guy under the guise of some strange sexual harassment rules. The guy apparently didnt say anything crude or sexual to her other than just being persistent in wanting to date her.
That joke of a college have any students left?
Faster than boiled asparagus
Two white guys got lesser punishment, but the black guy gets expelled for four years.
Mizzou shoots itself in the foot... again... and again... and again...
If Mizzou begins to punish a male student for asking out a female student who is shorter than he, then Mizzou male students will date female students from other colleges or leave Mizzou altogether.
Oh, are not male students on average taller than female students?
Women do not date people less than 4 inches taller than themselves period.
For which sex? If she's short, and comes up to his crotch...then she's sexually harassing him. And I'm a female saying that.
How Bout those Fat Chicks?
And we should tar and feather the idiot who asked that question.
Fat bottomed girls, you make the rockin’ world go ‘round
