    Don't blame you. Too much at risk when it's unknown which woman is just itching to do a #MeToo. Over anything.

    Not the problem. Because of the #MeToo stuff what man wants to be alone with a woman worker......

    Effects on career advancement? Unless it's a "woman's work", yep, the impact of woman making accusations about any given man she works with is such going to be negative.

    The impression I've been getting the past year or two is that some men really didn't know they were offending anybody.

    I think we need to just retrain ourselves. At work, you don't talk religion or politics unless you really know that person well. Same thing with dirty jokes. When I say know them well, I mean like they're your best friends at work so to speak. Don't tell a joke to somebody who appears to be cool.

    I don't touch other people at work and nobody touches me. It's not dramatic or anything.

    I remember when I was a substitute teacher, the little kids would come up and hug me. I'd put my arm around one who did instead of pushing them away. That's the only time I feel it was ever okay.

    I will tell you that construction workers really don't follow any social etiquette rules. Even the few women I have been around on a job site seem not to pay attention to those rules either.

    Who wouldn't be, now? Some random woman can haul you in front of Congress forty years later claiming that you gang-raped her in high school and the stated position now is that we're all required to believe her, no matter how preposterous her accusation.

    I'll be damned if I'm ever going to let myself be alone with a woman who is not a legitimate romantic interest for the rest of my life. I have female friends who were co-workers in the past whom I completely trust would never pull something like that on me, but I still will not do something like go out for friendly drinks after work with them anymore. Two years ago, this wasn't the case for me.

    Im alone in my office, door closed, almost daily with a woman.
    Reporters ask me what I feel China should do about Tibet. Who cares what I think China should do? I'm a fucking actor!

    Agree, You (male) can't take the chance. Women have done this to themselves.
