Peahens class action lawsuit against peacock’s sexual advances
Today the biggest ever class-action lawsuit for sexual harassment was launched. The entirety of the pea-hen population has come together to take a stand against the peacocks.
All peahens have reported males making sexual advances on them, fanning their tail feathers in a suggestive manner and refusing to take no for an answer.
“It’s systematic abuse,” claimed Becky, “all peacocks think that this behaviour is acceptable. They act as if we only exist for them to proposition.”
“They simply don’t take no for an answer,” Jo chimed in, “even if you turn away they walk in front and fan their feathers again. They just don’t seem to get the message that I’m not interested.”
“I’ve sometimes had as many as three males all competing,” said Audrey, “each wanting to get my attention. I just can’t face going out in public anymore during the mating season.”
The sheer scale of the sexual harassment lawsuit has kickstarted the government to fast-track a law to ban the use of tail feathers in public. Others are advocating laws to remove the tail feathers of repeat offenders.
Whatever the outcome, it’s clear that the day of males initiating the mating dance is over.
