Most people will deal with sexual misconduct at some point in their lives. Some will even run into it in the work place, but one woman's way of handling it didn't turn out as quite as she planned... or did it?

Beautifully written article & it was a pleasure to read! Thanks for the food for thought. I can't say I have anything intelligent to add to the topic, but I am thinking about it now, which means you were successful in that respect. I would like to see more well written articles like this, on topics that haven't been re-hashed to death, thanks for doing that!

great piece! I read this story when it first hit the news, and I still feel the same way. Language is there to be played with, and we have all made off-color jokes at some point, or maybe slipped innuendo or double entendre into conversation because we (and hopefully our audience) will find it amusing.

If we are going to take offense at every little thing, then we should expect other people to find our attitude offensive. There's enough in life to worry about without perceiving fresh insult and wrong in what was clearly intended as a good-natured, and non-threatening situation. Regardless of whether or not she deserved what she got, he deserves an apology.

If it was appropriate for the guys to make the remark, why wasn't it appropriate for Adria to repeat it with her own opinion that it was kinda crass?

To me, there are two crowds of people who overreacted: 1) the guy's employer, for firing him and 2) the people making rape and death threats because REALLY?
