To the editor:

In light of the recent discussion concerning sexual harassment, I would like to suggest an aspect that has been overlooked. The vulgar and profane language in today's movies and plays. In KU's recent production of ``The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui,'' sexual vulgarities were heard throughout the play. Not seeing any purpose in blatant vulgarity, I asked my husband to read Brecht's play in the original German. There was one occurrance of any word that might be considered vulgar or profane.

The vulgarity in today's theater and films is most often sexual in nature and degrading to men and women alike. And unfortunately, we too often pay to be sexual harassed.
