    I successfully organized a panel of experts in

    my community. One of the experts was an old, married college professor and a pastor who said in an email that he has inappropriate thoughts about me and he couldn't wait to see me again. I don't feel the same way and told him in my e-mail response. My employer would like for me...

    This you may see in a different light.

    But this is the first time that I believe I have been sexually harrassed. Before you judge, hear me out. I was sitting on a bus home from school next to my friend(on the window seat since she was getting off soon). After she got off I was seated alone with only two of my...

    Should I tell..? Or should I just keep silent.

    .? It happened last year and I don't know if anyone will believe me? Should I even be upset that it happened? Is it a stupid reason to be upset and scared that someone grabbed my crotch area without my consent on purpose?

    My Manager...

    When I Was 18

    I worked overnights on the weekends at my store. One night, I pulled in and parked in my usual spot, and saw someone walking towards my car. As I watched them approach, I realized it was an old coworker who'd quit a few weeks ago. I opened my door to get out, and he came over and...
