Bogus Sexual Harrasment Charges had a nice post on sexual harrasment I'd like to share. He talks about a case of bogus sexual harassment charges:

Professor Thomas Thibeault made the mistake of pointing out — at a sexual harassment training seminar — that the school's sexual harassment policy contained no protection for the falsely accused. Two days later, in a Kafkaesque irony, Thibeault was fired by the college president for sexual harassment without notice, without knowing his accuser or the charges against him, and without a hearing.
Here's how the politically correct educrat brass responded to the professor's thought crime:

Thibeault was summoned to EGC President John Bryant Black's office. … Black told Thibeault that he "was a divisive force in the college at a time when the college needed unity" and that Thibeault must resign by 11:30 a.m. or be fired and have his "long history of sexual harassment … made public." This unsubstantiated allegation took Thibeault by surprise. Black added that Thibeault would be escorted off campus by Police Chief Drew Durden and that Black had notified the local police that he was prepared to have Thibeault arrested for trespassing if he returned to campus. At no point was Thibeault presented with the charges against him or given any chance to present a defense. Refusing to resign, Thibeault understood that he was fired.
As for his "long history of sexual harassment," it apparently consists of this:

[O]ne day after Thibeault expressed his concerns, his colleagues were pressured to produce evidence of "sexual harassment." A central item of evidence apparently was Thibeault's reading aloud of non-sexual excerpts from the book An Encyclopedia of Assholes to colleagues in a faculty break room-with the alleged element of "sexual harassment" arising simply from the book's title.
Even this much evidence is superfluous in a sexual harassment charge. Simply declaring yourself to be offended is proof that whoever you say offended you is guilty.

The point he makes from this, and I'd like to echo is, this same process is used by liberals on several fronts, most notably, and most recently, the false accusations of racism against Joe Wilson. If you dare question them, they will do their best to defame you. Politicians know this, and it scares many of them away from confronting the obvious lies, and awful legislation that is presented daily by the left. I say grow a pair, and deal with the repercussions like a man. Eventually this tactic will be exposed, and the left with be portrayed as the bad guy.
