Um, workplace harrasment cases are not the same as obscenity cases.  I
think you are alluding to obscenity rules, which depend not on a
reasonable man test, but on a community standards test.

The definition of the reasonable man test is the same everywhere; it
is implemented by juries, judges, and appeals courts.
