    The race to say the stupidest thing in 2017 has a new leader.


    A Democratic congresswoman told her colleagues in a meeting on Wednesday that staffers and lawmakers should stop wearing revealing clothing if they want to avoid sexual harassment, according to two Democratic sources in the room.

    Politico cites two sources who say Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur (Ohio) made the comments during a closed-door Democratic caucus meeting to discuss sexual harassment issues.

    “I saw a member yesterday with her cleavage so deep it was down to the floor,” Kaptur reportedly said. “And what I’ve seen … it’s really an invitation.”

    “Maybe I’ll get booed for saying this, but many companies and the military [have] a dress code. I have been appalled at some of the dress of … members and staff. Men have to wear ties and suits,” she continued.

    No woman should be harassed in the workplace, but if you wear revealing clothing you are going to receive some stares. So if somebody makes a lewd comment or tries to touch you by all means file a complaint, but if you have your tits hanging out don't cry "sexual harassment" if you catch them staring at your chest. :dunno:

    Sounds like she doesnt get the point that an invitation may not have your name on it. No one should be sexually harassed no matter what they are wearing.

    I can't get harassed if I try. I wear my assless chaps to work, and people just stare at me like I'm a weirdo.

    And if any harassment takes place it needs to be stopped immediately, not bottled up and reported 30 years later.

    You expect her to write "dont touch" on those? Are you like a 2 year old that doesnt know how to keep your hands to yourself?
