    is bullshit, anyway.  You aren't going to make bigots stop being bigots by lecturing them to try and "understand the feelings" of the people they are bigoted against.  You just tell them to get with the program or their asses get fired, period.  And if they still can't get it together, then the DOJ comes in and shuts them down for violating the civil rights act.

    But I also think sensitivity training in general is bullshit and waste of time, so take my comment with a grain of salt.

      Believe it or not, there are still many men in business that need to be taught that comments about a woman's appearance are usually not welcome form a boss, colleague, or subordinate, even if the man thinks he is giving a complement.

      A "Hello, Ms... You look very nice today" may sound  innocent, but an abuser can layer on many different meanings with their eyes and body language.

      When you ask a man, "You wouldn't say that to a man would you?" then they get it, that it's just better to stick with gender neutral,

      "Hello, how are you?" or "Hello, it's good to see you." or "Hello, I hope you had a nice weekend."
