Before long it will be against the law to be a white heterosexual male in Lawrence.

Git it rat!! Dogonye, use mispald purty.
I'm glad I'm beige!
I don't understand why the gay and lesbian people think they rest of us need to know about their sex life. They could help themselves by not being so 'in your face' about it. I don't go around telling everyone I am heterosexual.
When you give your wife a quick kiss in public, hold her hand, or walk down the street with your arm around her waist you're telling everyone you're heterosexual.
So that's OK but if I want to do the same thing with my partner of 20 years it's "in your face"?
He says as he hides behind his anonimnity. You cleary like to stereotype. My comment says nothing at all about gays or being gay. My comment was about taking rights away from everyone else while making exceptions to special interest. Your wimpy pantywaste comment is alot of bravodo from someone who hides behind the skirt of anonimnity. YOu are probably someone I whipped as a punk back in high school and you still haven't gotten over it.
Enlightenment and education should go hand-in-hand. Treat others as you yourself would want to be treated. I think we would all like to be treated with respect and dignity.
I agree Wally.
I think that some consulting firm has made some major bucks by selling this to KU.
The Huron Group is the name of the consulting firm KU Hired awhile back. Not sure if this was their Idea or not.
Hope they include a section on Discrimination of People with Physical Disabilities(The Blind or the wheel chair bound, etc) as well as Discrimination of People with Mental Disabilities( PTSD, ADHD, Bi-polar, etc). I am a veteran with PTSD and was very discouraged by the response from HR when my PTSD Diagnosis was made known to them. They tried to get me to leave my position(and KU) rather than help me succeed with reasonable accommodation. They made me feel like a broken machine that was ready for the scrap yard. ADA rep. was no help at all.Years of no promotions or raises(Passed over for both even though I was eligible when they were available) have left me with the feeling I am not wanted here.
Reduce harassment? No. Reduce institutional liability? Absolutely.
Excellent Point ! jrpigman
HR has some good people, but the person at the top should have gone years ago. I think that is a position that should be changed every few years as the burn out in such a job has got to be high.
People have to feel safe reporting abuse, sexual or other kinds, and assumptions should not be made. Otherwise probably not much will change.
Had briefings like this all the time in the military. It's not expected to prevent a darn thing. It's a procedure put in place by higher-ups so that when there's a rape, DUI, etc., they can say, "Hey! I did EVERYTHING I could! Look, I even had them take this online training where they had to pass a 10-question test at the end about sexual harassment!"
It's an out for lousy leadership who can't come up with real methods to reduce sexual harassment.
Not disagreeing, but am curious as to what would constitute a real method.
When I was at Offutt AFB, my unit brought speaker Mike Domitrz for one of our sexual harassment briefings. He did his "Can I Kiss You?" presentation and, I think, actually connected really well with us. Very funny guy but got across some important messages.
Yes! Agree with you 100%, Topple. We called them CYA Briefings.
Honestly you make this stuff so taboo you increase the incidents seriously. With 18 yearolds it will become a joke. And you dont want to make alot of sad pandas on campus
That makes me a sad panda
I resist becoming a robot. Preprogrammed to make everyone happy. which by the way is not possible. That is why all the required courses and law changes to make people treat each other right is never going to happen. Diversity by it's true nature celebrates our differences, If nobody is different, then we are all the same. Count me out please. And... Just who get's to decide which one of these samenesses is the correct one???
Some folks just want everyone else to obey the rules they don't want to have to be the same, just everyone esle.
Anyone ever see a clip of the Nazi Germany army goosestepping?
I'm just curious how many of the commenters here actually did the training...just curious. I did. I've been a student/faculty/staff member at KU for years, and yes, I did learn something from it. Basically it clarifies how and when to report sexual harrassment and I think it's a good thing. Not that I'm defending HR or their decision to answer every problem with a new online training module. It was done to cover their butts but some good may come of it.
I took the training as required. Been here closer now to 20 years and the only difference is we did it online instead of a small auditorium. I am glad you are an optimist. There has never been any problem with the Reporting of Discrimination, sexual or otherwise, at KU. The problem, sometimes, is what happens after that..
Like ku's online drinking course is to reduce drinking.. A pure wate of time those online personal achievement courses.
