Spoiler:
Netflix Bans Crew Workers from Looking at Each Other for Over 5 Seconds to Fight Sexual Harassment

As part of an effort to further the goals of the #MeToo movement and enforce more stringent sexual harassment guidelines in the workplace, Netflix has independently implemented a series of feminism-inspired rules for some of their employees who work on shows like “Black Mirror” in the United Kingdom.

Among the most bizarre of these new rules is Netflix’s directive to film crew members that they should never “look at anyone for longer than five seconds.” This appears to be an attempt to stop all flirting in the workplace, and to be fair, it is quite hard to imagine how sexual harassment could take place at Netflix in the absence of normal social interactions where people look at each other while having conversations that last longer than five seconds.

But just to make super sure that absolutely no sexual harassment takes place at Netflix, there are plenty of other new rules, including bans on giving “lingering hugs,” touching anyone for “a lengthy period of time,” or asking for colleagues’ phone numbers.

Netflix employees who have received the guidelines have also been encouraged to shout at “inappropriate” co-workers to stop their behavior and even “report” colleagues “who [have] given anyone unwanted attention.”

In response to inquiries from The Sun and The Independent about the new rules, Netflix neither confirmed nor denied their existence, instead issuing both news outlets a blandly predictable statement extolling the internet TV titan’s purported efforts to “empower people on our sets to speak up”:

Quote:
“We’re proud of the anti-harassment training we offer to our productions. We want every Netflix production to be a safe and respectful working environment. We believe the resources we offer empower people on our sets to speak up, and shouldn’t be trivialized.”

So we can't teach men to be chivalrous, because that tells men women are weak and need to be protected. We can't celebrate the diversity between men and women, because there are no differences, and in fact, you can freely flop between them, even mentally, and it's okay. We don't want to teach any morality with sex because that's so 1000 years ago. If men and women wish to use sex as a transaction (i.e. the casting couch), that's bad because it's always a person wielding power over another and can't ever be two people using their bodies the way they choose to. Now, masculinity has become so toxic that we have to start timing every form of contact, even visual, so we can avoid the very appearance of evil. Next thing you know, high school dances will be canceled and the world will have to depend on Kevin Bacon yet again.

Society doesn't want to teach a moral code anymore and we just keep ending up with more rules getting endorsed by the very virtue-signaling elites that are involved in the problems. Maybe we need to start just teaching our boys to treat girls like ladies again.

To be clear, I find the casting couch abhorrent.

If your entire worldview is based on crusading against injustice, you'd better make sure there's an ample supply of it to do battle against.

that's what being PC is all about - It's apparently easier to just redefine injustice to be "when I don't get things my way!".

It's the racism of the 21st century.

It's not even limited to not getting things your own way. It's about needing injustice to fight, because what value is there in being someone who stands up for justice if the injustice you're fighting has already been defeated?

If you can't find injustice, make some.
