Can't say, similar to the woman the sexual harassment story is mainly about.

So, the arab is the one who actually put his neck on the line for some respect towards women.

This won't go down well on the mainstream press, which ashames me as a citizen of the so-called western world.

Let's fucking hope. This story is an absolute disgrace. Awesome exposing. Tom Barnes, what a tool

And @Kat_YYZ is also correct. European Old Boys Club is right.

Asking him to stop was futile. The most offensive and rude incident happened in Gstaad, when the first thing umpire Gianluca Moscarella asked upon entering her office was whether she wanted to join him for sex. She had never met him before. He kept insisting and after asking him why he was acting like that, Moscarella answered, ''You provoked me by having big tits and a big ass.''
anyone else was trying to imagine the conversation with the Moscarella girly voice?

I think this has little to do with Arabs vs the West, and more with a certain mediterranean male attitude, if you look at the persons involved and some locations where it happened. And this is reinforced by the traditional chauvinisism in the sports world

There is a huge difference in this respect between for example the US and France. I don't think Dominique Strauss-Kahn would have been arrested in France.

No Eva was already a senior gold badge umpire. In 2011 umpired Women's Final at USO.
Would be lower profile.

Moscarella is as childish as his voice indicates.

I misunderstood bjurra in my earlier post, by the way. The woman the sexual harassment story is about is not an umpire, she works in an office job.
