Sexual Harassment Is Totally Cool In Russia

The people of Russia have done and said a lot of great stuff over time (“In Russia, toilet paper uses you!”, communism), but I think we have a new winner. According to telegraph.co.uk:

A Russian advertising executive who sued her boss for sexual harassment lost her case after a judge ruled that employers were obliged to make passes at female staff to ensure the survival of the human race.

She alleged she had been locked out of her office after she refused to have intimate relations with her 47-year-old boss.

“He always demanded that female workers signalled to him with their eyes that they desperately wanted to be laid on the boardroom table as soon as he gave the word,” she earlier told the court. “I didn’t realise at first that he wasn’t speaking metaphorically.”

The judge said he threw out the case not through lack of evidence but because the employer had acted gallantly rather than criminally.

“If we had no sexual harassment we would have no children,” the judge ruled.

So, without sexual harassment, we wouldn’t have any children? At first I thought this was totally crazy, but after seeing this photo of Isiah Thomas’s house, I think that Russian judge might be onto something.
