As far as men going to HR to complain about women dressing inappropriately it's really the other way around, it's women dressed inappropriately who will go to HR complaining that men are making "unwanted" advances to her, getting men in trouble while she tries to takes their job opportunities away. I've see it happen at every company I've worked at. This is why men have to be so damn careful in the work world.
Maybe we guys should just stop ogling women's tits simply because they're there. Or if you just can't help it, maybe look away if you get caught, and don't do it again, instead of making a big deal out of it, or god forbid, smiling or winking. OR, don't blame it on the woman (which one poster did in this thread).

I'd like to believe that the majority of women who approach HR about such instances have valid reasons to do so, such as being objectified. The reality is that none of us men truly know what it's like to be a woman in the work world. Hell, it's objectification to make the assumption that a woman who dresses how she chooses (and not against any dress code) is wantonly approaching HR with a bag of lies.

Re: Are there that many Jack A$$ men

A couple of posts about preferential treatment reminded when I was working in a particular office. We needed supplies to continue with the project. Colleagues were complaining how bad our account manager was (we were his client), not returning calls or getting supplies to us when needed. The director requested I call him as I was new in. I called, placed the order, he arrived with supplies within about two hours.

He asked to meet me.

Took one look and said 'By your accent, I thought you'd look different...' His facial expression and disappointed tone was classic. I know it was inappropriate of him but I had to hold back the laughter. I replied 'Sorry to disappoint you.' He grunted, told me who he expected me to to look like, handed over the order and left.

The team commented they'd never received service that fast before. 'Well now he knows I don't look like his Hollywood crush, it probably won't happen again!'
