It’s sexual harassment… dumb-ass…

So — this article ticks me off, a lot.

First, the tone-deaf attitude that it’s easy to bring sexual harassment charges when you’re a grad student and the harasser is a prominent member of your department — umm.. NOPE!

Second, the implication that she only thought it was sexual harassment when her boyfriend decided to stand up for her — putting himself at risk too..

The thing about grad school is that it’s a huge gamble — you dive in hoping for a job.  Those jobs depend on good recommendations from prominent people in your field.  One of those people decides that they take a shine to you and you have no good way to resist.
