The next time you are eating an

ice lolly

in the office, be warned: you could be sexually harassing your colleagues.

下次在办公室吃冰棍,你可要小心了:你可能会对同事构成性骚扰。

That, at least, is the bizarre suggestion from a group of lawyers calling for new sexual harassment laws to include women who eat ‘too

provocatively’ in public.

芬兰一些律师提出这条离奇的建议,他们呼吁实行新的性骚扰法,将在公众场合“挑逗性”地吃冰棍的女性也纳入性骚扰的范畴。

The Finnish team has even released a video showing a young female office worker sucking an ice lolly in a highly suggestive manner.

这些芬兰律师为此发布了一段视频,其中,一位年轻的女职员吮吸着一支冰棍,姿态很撩人。

Male colleagues look away awkwardly as she moans and licks the lolly in the minute-long clip.

在这段一分钟的短片中,女职员边舔冰棍,边发出吮吸声,在场的男同事们十分尴尬地把脸转过去。

A question then appears on the screen asking: ‘Is this sexual harassment? We know the answer.’

随后,屏幕上出现了一个问题,“这是性骚扰吗?我们都知道答案。”

The Finnish Lawyers Association, which represents thousands of legal experts in the country, said on its website: ‘We have released this video to raise a very difficult issue. Sexual harassment in the workplace can target anyone, men or women.

芬兰律师协会在其网站上说:“我们发布这一视频旨在提出一个十分棘手的问题,即工作场合中的所有人都可能成为性骚扰的受害者,不论男女。”该协会代表着芬兰的数千名法律专家。

‘We fully intended to

throw the cat among the pigeons

and hope to stimulate debate about what is a very tricky legal area.

“我们希望激起大家的热议,来讨论这一棘手的法律领域。”

‘We also want to inform the public that if they are unsure about a complex situation they may have faced, lawyers are there to help them.’

“我们也想告诉公众,如果遇到复杂的法律难题,可以向律师求助。”

An expert in EU laws on sexual harassment told French newspaper France-Soir: 'This video shows a woman consuming an ice cream in a totally exaggerated manner that would make any man

raise his eyebrows.

一位欧盟性骚扰法律专家告诉《法国晚报》,“视频中的女子吃冰棍的样子非常夸张,这会让所有男人侧目。”

'Across most of Europe, the law says that any gestures aimed deliberately at sexually

intimidating

another person are a criminal offence.

“在欧洲多数国家,法律规定任何蓄意对他人造成性胁迫的挑逗姿势都属于刑事犯罪。”

'This film shows it is sometimes difficult to know where to

draw the lineand that women as well as men can be guilty of sexual harassment.'

“从这段视频可以看出,性骚扰有时很难界定,女性和男性一样可以实施性骚扰。”
