Men Harassing Other Men

Peter sent in this article from the New York Times (free registration required). It's about the rise in sexual harassment lawsuits filed by men against male employers. The article is testimony to the unequal treatment of gay men in the workplace. From the article: "While some of these men are complaining of unwanted sexual overtures, just as women frequently do, most complaints involve men being picked on, through boorish hijinks that come across as offensive and humiliating...Men's claims now account for 13.5 percent of all sexual harassment charges being brought to the commission, nearly double the percentage a decade ago." The article describes the problems faced by those who file same-sex harassment claims, which the courts do not take as seriously as claims filed by women against male employers.
