“I’m buying you this so I can take you home, something like that.” ??? Hmm...$5 for whoever comes closest to the real remark.
--but at Least They’re Not Homosexuals!
Josh - you are in unknown waters, this is really trash talk. I wish they were all out and frisky sexually active exclusively homo, all, get it?
What is with all the straight guys now sorting out gay male sexual issues?
And what EVER made you think Josh, the only homos in the state are within ten blocks of your office?
"I'm buying you this drink so that people will think I'm straight. If I harass enough women, maybe I'll be able to stop thinking about smoking pole all the time."
Sometimes sarcasm doesn't quite work on-line. Changed the header for you.
"I'm buying you this drink so I can f$@k you til you are blind."
At least Dunn is not a hypocrite. This is who he is. He's never made any attempt to hide his boorishness. There's no explanation as to why he keeps getting elected.
This seems to call for a bit of photoreconstruction ... and a caption contest.
But seriously - why is Josh so frequently misinterpreted?
...so I can get into your panties.
And the woman should have said, "Sorry, dude, they wouldn't fit. Your ass is way bigger than mine."
This is such a PR stunt to make Conservative Republicans not look gay. Pathetic.
Yes, let's strip an otherwise good person of all of his life's achievements because he tried to pick up on a woman at a bar.
ALL of us would be in prison if that were fair. Doesn't it get tiring constantly trying to destroy people because they don't agree with you on politics?
Oh, wait, this is Seattle where we're all so open minded. I almost forgot.
Republicans are a sexy, sexy bunch!
It's surprising that nothing has been done about Dunn's inappropriate behavior before this. It's one of the worst kept secrets in Olympia. There are women who will not meet with him and female staffers who won't meet with him alone.
The Republicans have no class.
So what the hell did Dunn actually say???
idaho @5 wins!
Tom #11. Don't be stupid Tom. If you are at a work related event at a bar you are still in the workplace dynamic and you cannot make sexually inappropriate comments to your co-workers. Maybe his intent was to be funny but it still counts as sexual harassment and is just plain dumb.
Do you know how annoying it is to put up with those stupid ass comments all the time? Get a clue and welcome to the 21st century Tom.
“Hi sweet tits, I just bought this new super sized red dildo and I want you to go up to my room with me and shove it up my ass and work it all around for an hour or so. And I have some good grass to smoke. My wife knows and it is OK with her.
When we get naked I will show you my secret collection of Hitler pictures, they always gets me so.so hot.”
Thank god you welcomed me Gloria, I was beginning to feel really out of place. My top hat in particular was chafing.
I'm sure you have to put up with people picking up on you all the time. God, your life must be aweful. Lol. Of course, it's only really all that bad if it's someone you don't think is attractive enough, right? Me get a clue? Riiiiight...
This guy sounds like a loser and a crappy boss.
It is inappropriate for a boss to make a sexual comment to an employee at a workplace event. The fact that the comment was made in front of people probably means that it wasn't a sincere pickup line, but instead was a joke in bad taste meant to embarrass the staffer. At any rate, such workplace behavior is unacceptable in the 21st century, and most corporations would fire or at least censure an employee who made such a comment. Since Dunn is an elected official, however, he might get away with it.
I'm a guy who worked in an office with all women. They talked about sex all the time. They were bigger pervs than most of the guys I've worked with.
I think everyone has had multiple experiences like that - I know I have at several different workplaces. Difference is men don't generally feel the need to use victim status to get ahead, so it's a non-issue.
Uh oh - bring on the hate now!
Are you guys really so clueless you don't understand the difference between a group of co-workers - equals - making remarks with (possibly inappropriate but not actionable) sexual innuendo, and a superior - someone in authority over you - actually propositioning you? Do you really not understand the difference between being hit on by just your average asswipe, or being hit on by the person who could have you fired, the person who probably signs your paychecks?
Oh, and my entry in the What He Really Said Sweepstakes: "Here, have another drink on me. Maybe if I get you drunk enough, you'll let me take you to a hotel room, where I will proceed to clumsily grope you, attempt to achieve penetration, fail miserably, and then pass out and snore and fart loudly all night."
It wasn't his employee. You misread the article. And it's pretty obvious it was a joke, albeit in bad taste, but still a joke.
There is a protocol between staff and legislators that is followed. Having seen Dunn in action, I imagine his remark was not only raunchy, but embarrassing to the staff person. It had to be pretty bad if no one is coming to his defense.
Tom sucks! Boooooooooo Tom!
In Man's @20 situation, he could have filed a sexual harassment complaint with a reasonable chance of having a jury rule in his favor. A hostile work environment can be caused by equals/co-workers, not just superiors.
