Do not ever be afraid to say no.

I was.

For the first two months of my employment, my boss made blatant sexual advances toward me. He was always violating my personal space and always had his hands on me whenever he could. My shoulder, my lower back, my hips, my thighs. He would smell my hair and my neck. He would stand very close behind me. Pretty sure I felt a boner one time.

I was terrified. I was new. I wanted to quit. This was a first time for me to be sexually harassed at a work setting. I couldn’t punch my own boss. In retrospect, I wonder why I didn’t. If I had, or if I had only said ‘no’ or ‘stop,’ it wouldn’t have gone on for two months.

I was afraid to speak out, or to even tell someone. I couldn’t tell my boyfriend at the time, what would he think? It took me two months to muster up enough courage to talk to my closest friend; and it was through that conversation that I found even more courage to end the harassment.

I still work here.

I’m no longer afraid, but I am always cautious.

I’m also tired of keeping this a secret. So here it is.

We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry

The whole article sadly hits very close to home.

The fact that most guys’ first response to a woman wanting equality is “SO CAN I HIT U NOW” is sort of terrifying
Like that’s the first thing you’re concerned about? I just want equal pay and you want to punch me in the face? Cool cool
