With the large number of women coming forth with allegations of being sexually molested as young women by old white conservative religious men makes myself and other women and men disgusted. These perpetrators are vile and pretentious bastards.
Their ego’s and self-righteousness is something from the Old Testament and the Dark Ages, and does not belong in this century. Unfortunately, many men still believe it is ok to force themselves on a women or young girl. These men often hide behind the Bible, some using quotes from the Bible to justify their horrendous actions. This is simply bull shit and these old bastards need to go to jail.
The beliefs of some in the southern culture believe it is ok to use their power or status to get sexual favors and some in the culture believe it is ok for a old man to date an under aged girl. And what makes it even worse is their parents believe it is an honor to have an older man with status and power to want their daughter. How disgusting is that. Again, most of these people are religious conservatives.
Some women in Alabama were on TV saying that they believe that people are attacking Roy Moore (5 accusers) because he is a “Christian” how ignorant is these women who would not stand by another woman over a filthy predator. Hopefully these women will never have to experience unwanted sexual advances. Again religious ignorance knows no bounds, and the brain washing of southern young women is rampant in the south.
Then we have Republican President Bush (41) on the list of groping a young under aged girl while she was in a photo op with her parents, what a piece of work. How many others has he molested only time will tell as other women come out to report their attackers. We had Democrat President Bill Clinton doing the same thing or worse. Just to mention a couple more recent Presidents.
Since the Weinstein report, there has been a huge list of more creeps being exposed, from high profile places. Such as:
Andrew Kreisberg Executive producer of "Arrow", "Supergirl", "The Flash," Accusation Sexual harassment of more than a dozen people. Louis C.K. Comedian and producer, Accusation Sexual misconduct with five women, including exposing himself and masturbating in front of them. Benjamin Genocchio Executive director of the Armory Show art fair, Accusation Sexual harassment, including unwelcome touching of five women. David Guillod Co-chief executive of Primary Wave Entertainment agency, Accusation Sexual assault of four women. Jeff Hoover Kentucky speaker of the House Accusation Sexual harassment and inappropriate text messages. Brett Ratner Producer and director Accusation Rape, sexual assault and harassment of six women, including exposing himself and masturbating. Kirt Webster Music Publicist Accusation Sexual assault and harassment, including unwanted touching. Andy Dick Actor, Accusation Sexual harassment, including groping. Michael Oreskes Head of news at NPR and former New York Times editor, Accusation Sexual harassment of three women. Kevin Spacey Actor, Accusation Sexual assault of multiple men and sexual misconduct with a minor. Mark Halperin NBC News and MSNBC contributor, author of "Game Change" Accusation Sexual harassment of at least five women. Chris Savino Creator and showrunner of “The Loud House” Accusation Sexual harassment, including unwanted sexual advances, of as many as 12 women. These are just a few of high powered men who are nothing more than sexual predators, who used their position to take advantage of women.
The Senate and House was a toxic pot of sexual harassment between 1997 and 2014, the United States Treasury paid $15.2 million in 235 awards and settlements for Capitol Hill workplace violations. These were the reported violations, many women failed to come forward because they were afraid of losing their career. Sexual harassment against women has been common practice for centuries and until recently it was often ignored. As time has passed society has stopped turning a blind eye against such assaults and women are now coming forth to take action against the perpetrators. Men as well are speaking out against other men who have assaulted women; it is no more a common accepted workplace action.
I want to make it clear that sexual harassment is by partisan, done by the rich, the middleclass and the poor. Sexual harassment knows no boundaries and happens everywhere and every day. I hope with the recent developments, the media reports and outrage across the country that these kinds of repugnant acts becomes fewer and fewer. No one---- man or woman should have to put up with sexual harassment in order to hold a job.
