I have never argued that everything 'isn't my fault' and yes I do say things straight, it does no good to pussyfoot around somethings. I have got my 'poster's' correct btw. I've investigated sexual harrassment cases not just where a woman has complained, also where a man has complained. It's not about being called 'dear, love' or anything like that though I agree that is unprofessional, it's not harrassment. It's about comments, touching and in some cases bullying often along the lines of women being unable to do the job because they are women etc. Much along the lines that MA Caver has complained about women being nasty scheming creatures out to get him, sorry I don't buy that. In my experience very few women will allege sexual harrassment unless they feel it's true and then never for trivial reasons, going through an investigation isn't easy for anyone. I doubt I'm unusual in knowing women who act professionally at work. I will say though everyone who's been sacked is always innocent, it was always someone elses fault never theirs. Now some may be innocent but really if you are doing your job, are a valuable employee why would they sack you just for calling someone sweetheart? In being sacked from several companies for the same thing, as I said, look to how you perceive women, think about how a persons behaviour affects others and look to see how professional people work. I agree with Steve there's far more to this that what's here.
