Bogus sexual harassment lawsuit

A former writer's assistant for a TV sitcom, Amaani Lyle, has sued for sexual harassment, because they used some sexually explicit language while brainstorming new scripts!

She doesn't even claim that any of the comments were directed at her, but only that she was offended that the writers talk about sex so much.

The whole point of a TV show like Friends is to be soft-core porn for women. It uses a lot of sexually titillating jokes that women like. It seems obvious that the writers would use much more vulgar language, and then clean it up for TV.

The complainer had previously sued for sexual harassment in a previous job. There should be some national registry of women who file such lawsuits.
