Heard the most ridiculously obvious thing on the radio:

New Study Shows People Are Less Likely To Report Sexual Harrassment At Work Because They Fear Recriminations

Let’s discuss what’s wrong with this statement.

First! This is a new study; this either means that there have been past ones (why would you need more than one on this subject?), or this is the first done on this subject (it’s 2017 - why is this ‘new’?)

Secondly: YOU NEEDED A STUDY DONE TO TELL YOU THAT???? Clearly people won’t report harassment if they don’t want to rock the boat/jeopardize themselves. You would think that was a self-evident fact.

I don’t know whether to laugh at the absurdity of this headline, or weep for humanity because this is something that apparently isn’t obvious to people.
