Sexual harassment is in the spotlight at the moment, with women all over the world finding the courage to stand up for themselves and speak out against something that has been tolerated for way too long.
With high profile movements such as the #metoo campaign, as well as a raft of high profile people now being named and shamed for past inappropriate behaviours, there has never been more moral support for women who feel violated to fight back. And now, thanks to this woman’s story shared on Reddit, there is a new weapon against unwanted advances: revenge farts.
“It was MY way of using my ass as a weapon. A weapon against him,” she explained about the incident, which occurred soon after her colleague, Ted, had ‘accidently’ groped her. “I think more women should just do it. Who cares if it’s not feminine? It’s not gentlemanly but accepted to be groped. Why not have men fear the ass?”
Scroll down below to see how the episode unfolded. Is this an acceptable or effective way to deal with a creep who won’t stop inappropriately touching female colleagues? Let us know what you think in the comments!
A new weapon against unwanted sexual advances in the workplace exists thanks to one woman
“It was MY way of using my ass as a weapon. A weapon against him”
Read what she shared on reddit below:
I got my sexual aggressor fired from work today. I’m quite satisfied.
Guy at work kept “bumping” into me. A brush on the butt, on the side of my breasts. It kept happening and he played innocent always passing by with no eye contact. Today he one upped himself and actually goosed my butt. Full on pinch. Feeling defeated like no one would believe me, then something came over me.
I walked by him and turned my butt right next to his hand and just full on farted. Loud and angry. It’s gross, I know. But if he’s going to make me feel gross and “claim my ass” I’m going to make him feel gross and “claim his hand.”
He proceeded to freak out and then I freaked out. No more will he look at my ass as sexual, but a fart box that has forever claimed his tiny hand.
Boss overheard after other people kept talking about it, brought us both in, found out I was one of five he’s done this to. He said I intentionally farted on him (I said it was an accident) which I knew would freak him out. When he pinched me it was “a joke.”
As soon as he said that, I was told to excuse myself and he’s currently cleaning out his desk.
F*ck you, Ted.
