In Sports, Sexual Harassment is an Excused Joke

We don't know of a single woman who really believes that men view sexual harassment as a serious problem that they need to address to find a solution. This is not a problem caused by women, so why do women have to work so hard to try to solve it? Here's an example of why we women know Men in general take sexual harassment as a joke.

The Women's Sports Foundation issued a seething letter today to the WNBA Board of Governors over their shock of the hiring by the WNBA of Isiah Thomas as the new President of the Liberty. Mr. Thomas, the former Knicks head coach, was fired and sued for sexual harassment of his colleague, Anucha Browne Sanders.

According to an article in New Republic, "All the way back in 2007, Thomas and his then- (and now current) employer, James Dolan, and the Madison Square Garden Corporation were forced to pay a former executive, Anucha Browne-Sanders, $11.6 million in jury-awarded punitive damages, after a trial that made the New York Knicks come across as a deranged frat house."
