Yes, they clearly are. Someone who ignorantly sexually harasses someone (especially considering the personal information I recently shared) is in no way a "decent person".







I didn't pick the fight. I just happened across these posts so keep the failed distortion attempt to yourself. I have no idea how many members this site has but I think there would still be plenty without sexual harassers being encouraged to stay. Saying they're part of the reason the forum still exists is a bit of a stretch. Also, that "joke" was blatant sexual harassment so let's not minimize.


How is it blatant sexual harassment? Please explain that to me, because I’m honestly at a loss.

re: sexual harassment

This conversation brings up an interesting point. In my opinion, you're nearly arguing that you feel perhaps emasculated by those two posters. That's not the same thing as sexual harassment. And though I don't feel that they're actually emasculating you, if you feel that way, you maybe should separate it from sexual harassment. Where someone sexually harasses you. Sexually. As in, in a sexual manner.

The difference is, unlike you, I learned from my mistake and grew as a person since that time. Let's also keep this in perspective and remember that I posted that in defense after being personally disrespected and repeatedly name called.

Beyond that, you're the one who ran from this thread after being reprimanded for being ignorant only to mock me in another.

It's time to grow up.

It seems that “they made a joke about me I don’t like” constitutes sexual harassment, regardless of the content of the joke, or even if the joke is a reference to things you yourself called other people.

You can google the slang if you like. I've heard that comment used as a sexually harassing joke several times. There's no way to know for sure but maybe that was the point.

The context of it being posted in the thread celebrating the return of the member who was temporarily banned for sexually harassing me was also a factor.

The fact that the insults came right after I shared the personal information I did was another.

In any case, it was insulting and offensive as I've worked hard to make sure that I don't retaliate at their juvenile level for some time now.

That was what is now approaching a year ago and I posted it in response to the lovely comment: "What if Bono accidently introduces the song as "Red Hill Whining Clown" during the tour?

And then Edge screams "bitch" in the microphone?"

That was also after Mikal had straight up called me a Bitch just before.

No one seemed to have any problem with that....and the disrespect and rain down pile on had gone on for so long that I decided to return in kind. Try and say I was playing the martyr all you want but the mockery had reached to the level of harassment where I felt it was warranted to mirror the ignorance. As mentioned, it wasn't me to be that foul and I stopped after that.

I'm sorry but if you're a male being called a bitch you own no right to claim "sexual harassment."

with the exact same words:

redhill directly insults a forum member = justified retaliation
davec references a forum meme = sexual harassment

Actually, I was referring to this comment that you happily jumped on board with:

"I dunno about you folks but I'm beginning to think this redhill character might be a little coocoo for cocoa puffs."

Are you now suggesting General Mills was producing advertisements considered sexually unacceptable?

So now you're saying that being called a bitch isn't emasculating?

Here's what i don't get. Redhill added some comments to this thread, which i thought were an interesting and valid addition. Not that they diminished or took away from what others were saying. But they were valid, weren't they?
They certainly attacked no one.
Since then he's been defending himself left and right as if he's abused someone. I don't get it.
And why take to the other thread and take the piss out of him? Knowing he'll read it. Other than to be an asshole. Or feel part of the gang.
For the record i have no idea how redhill gets sexual harassment from daves/Headache's comments. But in general i think this whole 'beat him till he breaks' thing is fucking pathetic.

Actually, if you read that post, I most certainly distinguished sexual harassment from emasculation. So which one is it? Do you feel sexually harassed, or emasculated?

And context is everything. So no, I don't think being called a bitch in 99% of cases is emasculating. Unless he's literally calling you a female dog.

But this is a big part of it. This is a poster that will make a statement, and then declare it infallible, any slight criticism is met with a bombardment of attack and martyrdom. He’ll twist, turn, manipulate in every form or fashion in order to play victim, while bullying and beating all in the same breath. He’ll gnash his teeth to the point that any thread he comes into is lost.

For better or worst it’s either a gang up or a walking on eggshells around him, there’s no ability to engage, and this is how it’s been for years.
