Yes you're correct, it may factually be sexual harassment according to law (or it may not be, I don't know either way). I can only give my opinion on it here. And yes obviously women should not put up with sexual harassment, ever. I just disagree that that's what this is.
Realistically the problem with your last statement about women not being hired...how do they prove that? It would be tough. It's already tough, and I don't think calling this particular case sexual harassment is going to do anyone any favors. That's not the way that it should be, but I do believe it's the way that it is.
Maybe I'm wrong, but to me if I were a woman and heard another woman accusing someone of sexual harassment over this, I would be pissed.

I agree with some points, disagree with others.
I agree that ResetEra has many many "alt-left"/extreme type posters for example. That's clearly fostered by the current mod team. That's how it will be anywhere there's a medium sized community whether it's here, that other place, amongst subreddits etc.
I disagree that we can't publically decide who is or isn't "toxic" to an extent. Obviously the law has the final say on things such as hate speech, but it obviously can (and should) be called out when it's there.Fantastic discourse. This sums up what I mean pretty nicely. You were completely rude and condescending to another poster, you added nothing to the discussion...this is how outsiders generalize/see this site. You should be a better person and apologize. But instead fuck me too, right?
Depending on the specifics, I have and will continue to be highly annoyed when I see "white people" this or that without the qualifier SOME white people or MOST white people or whatever. If you mean some white people as opposed to the racist generalization of all white people, then say that.
If you think I'm fragile for that, cool. I don't care what any racist of any color thinks.
ReasonUser Banned (3 Days): Misrepresenting the arguments of others + straw man arguments
No, I am not complaining that I can't and I think you know that. I am pointing out that there is a double standard and that's what I disagree with. Any double standard I will disagree with. And that's where my complaining stops. We could be talking about turtles right now and if I saw a double standard I would point it out as bs imo.
Aside from that I'm not going to argue with you as I absolutely do not want anyone to feel uncomfortable posting their opinions. I welcome you and your opinions even if I were to strongly disagree with them (and that's not the case in this instance) and I hope you'd do the same for me.
Basically my view on gender inequality is that women should speak up/stand up/be brought up as equals in every aspect of life and its absurd to me that this isn't already the case. It's absolutely ridiculous that it's even a thing. I just want women to stand up as opposed to pulling anyone else down. That's the best way to balance things imo.
