i never said it wasnt wrong, it's just not the end of the world.

i prob wouldnt've done that unless i knew her well. but on the other hand it's not his fault she's an uptight old hag and jumps like a rabbit when someone touches their shoulders

shit, the way she looks she should be happy a man touched her

Is there a video of this that I missed?

This doesn't appear to be the brightest thing to do but still photos don't always tell the story the way that it happened. There's no way to tell what the order of events were or time between the photos. This, as it stands, is edited to make it look like it was horrible.

We also don't know their relationship or what the context of this moment was...what had happened before and what happened afterwards...for all we know she asked him for a rubdown.

I'm trying to find something to say to you that would convey how I feel without getting myself banned from this place forever.

... wow. There go any chances to have a mature discussion. Have some decency and politeness.

You weren't just disagreeing with the majority. You were acting like an immature, sexist jerk. That's why you are getting all the static.

What did you expect? That we would all laugh at your oh-so-witty remarks?

The hostility has come from your sexist attitude. Your derogatory and insulting comments about Merkel and towards the opinions of others here are completely unwarranted.

Weird. I can't really say how I feel, if those few grainy photos are all we've got.

Not that this is nearly as professional a situation, but I work with all guys and I've noticed that they're always patting each other's shoulders or giving them a little squeeze. A few of them do it to me too. One guy likes to surprise me by doing it (but he's also annoying and pokes my neck with pens to surprise me). I don't feel violated and I know they mean nothing by it.

So I guess I couldn't really say it's "sexual harassment" unless she's come out and said she felt violated. That's a seriously harsh accusation and as much as I despise Bush, I'd rather hear how Merkel feels and not speculate over a few still shots.
