Single Black Women and Workplace Sexual Harassment

. 07/10/2009 . 2 Comments

In an effort to “be nice” or out of fear of retaliation, single women allow men on their jobs to speak to them disrespectfully, touch them, or make crude comments or jokes. Women are also blamed for men’s behavior and feel guilty as they question what they did to “make him” take such illegal liberties. I’m here to tell you that no matter how small and insignificant others may view the emotional or psychic pain you feel after being subjected to such nasty behaviors, you are the ultimate decider of what is injurious.

Single men and women must never assume that they have a committed relationship or a “boyfriend/girlfriend” just because they’ve been on 5, 10 or even 500 dates, slept together, are living together, or have even had a baby.

My Dad raised me to never worry about pleasing other people or to care what they thought about anything with regards to me. Too many women did not get that message, and bend themselves into pretzels with each new man they meet, trying in vain to be “good enough” for him. Women need to be whatever they want to be as long as they are happy and satisfied, and stop trying to be the fantasy woman of men’s dreams. It never works anyway.
