Let's make it clear - there was a big element of 'sexism' against women that allowed Saville and Hall to do what they did and everyone turn a blind eye.
But the pendulum has swung the other way at the BBC due to political correctness, the modern-day feminist view that women are more equal than men and therefore should be ignored, and the blindness that says that only men can be guilty of sexual harassment.
How can anyone describe anything different about the sad story of Russell Joslin (BBC).
Here was a man who was sexually harassed by a female radio presenter - he complained - and the BBC did nothing (See Daily Mail report). Sexism, simply because if the genders were reversed, Joslin would have been suspended and sacked. But because he was a man, he was ignored. The full report is here.
What also is scandalous is that the coroner (a woman - Louise Hunt) says the women cannot be named (named allegedly by the Daily Mail). Again, as soon as an allegation is made against a man, they are on the front page of every newspaper , but not here. Again, apply the Lyndon Concept ( The Lyndon Concept, named after the concept Neil Lyndon first set out where genders are reversed) and the man would be named.
Lastly, in none of the coverage does anyone actually state that if the genders were reversed, it would have been dealt with differently - is everyone to scared to admit that men face discrimination and that BBC acted in a sexist way. All very Orwellian.
