Some men appear to be finding this way too difficult to get through, so I’ve written a BTECH version for anyone who is scoring incredibly badly:

  1. Can you touch a woman’s knees or waist in a meeting? (YES/NO)
  2. Would you own up to saying something sexist in the workplace? (YES/NO)
  3. Do you understand why saying sexual comments about a coworker could make them unhappy? (YES/NO)
  4. Do you understand that it is your responsibility to watch out for harassment as well as women? (YES/NO)
  5. Would you keep flirting with or touching a coworker who said she wasn’t interested? (YES/NO)
  6. Would you have publicly discuss a consensual sexual encounter with a coworker in the office space? (YES/NO)
  7. Would you accept sexual favours for a coworker to get a promotion from you? (YES/NO)
  8. Would you make sexual jokes about a colleague? (YES/NO)
  9. Would you accept responsibility for changing your behaviour in the light of a woman telling you she was unhappy about touching/flirting? (YES/NO)
  10. Can you fire a woman because she won’t have sex with you? (YES/NO)

(Answers: NO, YES, YES, YES, NO, NO, NO, NO, YES, NO)

If you score less than 100%, speak to HR immediately.
