Active steps could include, I dunno... just not having sex with someone you aren't married/committed to?
I'm sorry, but I simply cannot accept that it is appropriate for two men to be alone together for business purposes, but not a woman and a man. Not only could a man just as easily (though perhaps not as likely) cheat with a man as a woman, it is completely unfair to women. I have little respect for those who can't trust themselves and/or their female colleagues.
What about a woman executive in a male-dominated field? Does she constantly have to have an aide at her side to do her job? Or protect male sensibilities. No wonder women aren't promoted. A company has to hire two people to get one What about women working in skilled trades, as carpenters, plumbers, etc.? How could they possibly do their jobs, either working with male colleagues, or going into the <gasp> homes of actual male customers.
I think this article takes a couple of points OTT, but I am largely in agreement with it... https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/mi ... 889ba1a567
