It's easy to dismiss the charges of those who make claims of sexual harassment. I've heard the responses from those who have either never been a victim or have simply forgotten past incidences where they were either the victim or the perpetrator. "I don't believe them," they say. Or, "Why did they wait so long to bring charges to the guy?" Or, "It can't be true! Mr. X is such a nice guy. He wouldn't hurt a flea!"
