Re: “Air Force Academy has a distorted view of sexual assault says former employee

At Pearl (Navy), a man to lifted women's clothes to see what is underneath. When I objected and probably because I objected the man grabbed my ankles, knees, and thigh. BUT -this is not sexual harassment at Pearl. The man admitted touching women as a gesture of "camaraderie". Shipyard manager in charge dismissed it as horseplay. I was treated harshly when I did not accept the shipyard's findings.

The DoD investigator said that I did not have the demeanor of a victim. She also doubted that he lifted my clothes - but if he did it was "idle curiosity" not motivated by sex. It would have been like when he lifted another woman's clothes. She also said that he was not my supervisor.

EEOC ALJ concluded that the man created a hostile environment (that he had touched me on the ankles, knees, and thigh) and was my supervisor but said that I was unreasonable because I went to the union before going to the EEO office. I had other issues with what the man was doing at work.

I filed (pro-se) against the Secretary of the Navy. The DOJ Assistant U.S. Attorney insisted that he didn't understand how it could be sexual harassment since sex was not requested. I lost (I'm not an attorney). Because I lost, Pearl insisted that I was not sexually harassed and could not refuse to work with the man I refer to as the "leg grabber".

SAPR trainer taught that touching the "inner thigh" would be considered a sexual contact and could be considered a sexual assault. I asked how come that wasn't even sexual harassment at Pearl. Pearl's response was that it considered the matter closed.
