Default Why would any man meet with a woman alone?

given the current social status, why would any sane man meet with a woman who is not his wife? there is nothing to gain, everything to lose.

alone for 5 minutes to discuss the latest project for Skynet? you tell her she's doing great, suggest a few phone calls to make, think the meeting is over.

a few days/weeks/months/years pass, she decides to make your life hell, finds the meeting notes in her calendar, and poof, she has an exact time and place where you were inappropriate with her briefly.

of course, you deny it, but who will believe a guy now? clean out your desk, you are done. maybe you can stay married.

sad.

just when women started to be invited into the "good old boys club", that door is going to shut fast. sorry ladies, not worth the risk.

I've actually thought about this lately.

Trouble is, anyone can accuse you. Even a man.

would not do that today.

want to talk, let's have lunch in the cafeteria today.

no way i'd be alone with a woman who was not my wife.

even if i did nothing, i'm still out $$$$ defending myself.

i've been to a bar precisely 3 times in my life. little dive in GA, where i played pool a few times. didn't have anything to drink.

but....if i was at a bar, sipping my 7-up, and some lady sat by me and cooed "buy me a drink?" "sorry, not tonight"

what is the upside?

If that were to occur, I'd go postal on everyone responsible. Blood would flow.

Seriously, most of my working life, I've worked for small family owned businesses with less than a dozen employees. Mostly men, and usually a few women in the office and sometimes in the shop. I used to tell them the day I was hired I would never agree to be alone in the building with a woman. They would ask "Have you had a problem before?" and I would say no, because that's always been my policy. They knew what I meant and never argued my point. This is nothing new, I've been working under those rules since the 70s.

The problem with all of this is the fact that there is no due process.

It's not even guilty until proven innocent. A man is accused and he is automatically destroyed personally and professionally. Even if they are proven to be innocent, 'oh well'. It's scary.

I have dated women in the past that I know would have no problem destroying me if they got a wild hair up their ass to do so, and I didn't wrong them in any way...they just turned out to be certifiably nuts.

And during the last elections all of the Democrats made fun of Pence for stating this exact same fact.
