Perhaps because your "good old days" are not the only representation (or memory) of what those were?

Before awareness and even sexual harassment laws existed I remember the following.
1. One co-worker that continuously shared extreme racist and misogynistic jokes. It wasn't possible to have a conversation with him without this happening.

2. At another job one male owner of the company was so egregious that he was sued by women four times and lost in court at least two of those. Again keeping in mind that he lost before sexual harassment laws existed.

3. At another job the owner insisted that the managers only hire women with big breasts. Presumably so he could look at them while he was discussing football (which he also did.)
