Have I just been sexually harassed?
A few days ago in class, one student was giving a presentation on the text for the day, and he passed around several books for us to look at ("seminal works in the field" and all that). This student is gay and studies Queer Theory. Every book had "bookmarks" in it that were pictures of naked men (and not the artistic type - these were soft core gay porn). It would have been impossible to flip through the books without seeing them.
If I had passed around books that contained pictures of Playboy centerfolds as the bookmarks, I bet I'd be in serious trouble.
