So, unless you promptly reported her, or fired her you are reacting to the same fear people who are sexually harassed are under when they decide they won't report their boss because either they won't be believed and/or the boss will retaliate in some manner, either fire them, or not promote them.
Sometimes you have to take a hit for the team. I couldn't replace her in the time left to complete the job, or her part in that project. I told my wife that she might get a call and went on with my tasks without making a big deal out of what she had said. I wanted the job done, so I just sucked it up.

So I guess I felt the oppression that others have, and riff'd her in about ten days. It was a surprise and a bit of a shock, I hadn't expected it at all. Would I hire her again? No way. Be more careful? I already was careful. If I would have complained, they would still be laughing and that would have definitely went against my record, maybe not in writing. But in that business your reputation travels faster than you do.

I had a friend that was charged with sexual harassment and he can't work now in a large area around Olympia Washington, even twenty years later.

We had a large project winding down and workers were being rif'd a few at a time. A female employee told me in private that if I didn't keep her on, she would call my wife at home and say that I had been hitting on her.


So some women are jerks.

If a man had threatened the same thing, or to tell your wife you're sleeping around with a female employee, how would this have been any different?

From your post it appeared your plan was for me to join the oppressed.

Not much difference at all. I don't hold a grudge against women, or even her really. If some guy was crapping on me, and I needed something they uniquely had for the project, I'm very sure the results would be the same.

As a matter of fact, I have been what I termed at the time "held hostage" to a radical asshole, but I had to have his certificate to finish a job. There were only two people in the state that had the cert at the time. I had to keep him, until I didn't. He was released the day I didn't need him.

People are just people to me. The woman was just a surprise, thought I would share my experience with the members.
