Если sexual harassment налезет на защиту гомосексуалистов от дискриминации, кто кого сборет?

The filing came in a discrimination case before the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit involving Donald Zarda, a skydiving instructor. In 2010, Mr. Zarda was fired by his employer, a Long Island company called Altitude Express. Before taking a female client on a tandem dive, Mr. Zarda told the woman he was gay to assuage any awkwardness that might arise from his being tightly strapped to her during the jump. The woman’s husband complained to the company, which subsequently fired Mr. Zarda. Mr. Zarda then sued Altitude Express, claiming it had violated Title VII.

Но ведь это же возмутительно -- ни с того ни с сего сообщать женщине, что ты гомосексуалист. Она просто пришла прыгать с парашютом, совместно обвязавшись веревками. Ей и в голову не могло придти, что в этом может быть что-то сексуальное.
