    Krampus is from pre-Christian Germany (so, back before Charlemagne), and Zwarte Piet in the current incarnation is from the 19th century (specifically from a book illustration around 1845 or 1850).

    These two “solutions” are more sexual discrimination and the continuation of sexual harassment behind gendered doors. Hardly an acceptable answer, Robert.

    I suppose it’s easier to engage in victim blaming (“some women are too sensitive”) than to reevaluate one’s own behavior to effect positive changes.

    So the employers’ solution to sexual harassment is sexual discrimination and you and the guys in your building would rather isolate yourselves so you can continue their joking (aka sexual harassment) than break up your sausage-fest and enjoy the company of women?

    Yeah, it’s totes the women’s fault for being overly sensitive, fer sher.
