Hopefully, GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain will come out and explain his behavior and the charges of sexual harassment, and we can move on. And maybe he can move on. I realize we don’t know for sure who is telling the truth, but the numbers of women alleging this behavior makes it seem like there was a pattern on his part. My sense is the GOP wants him to go; it’s just his supporters–whoever they are–are sending him money. Not to mention the wealthy Koch brothers organization.
In any event–sexual harassment is real for many, and needs to end. There, I’m done with my rant.
Rant away, Liza! Let’s collectively imagine a world where both men and women are given their due respect. Who knows where this Herman Cain episode will end but because we are traveling this road with him and the news media, we are all a bit more informed and aware than before. Hopefully we can respond in healthy, productive ways when we see the next harassment circumstance raise its ugly head. Harassers, as well as victims, need help to stop the vicious cycle.
Sexual harassment/misconduct is definitely not a partisan issue: both elephants
and donkeys having been doing it for eons — mostly to each other.
The question of the hour: is Cain able to tell the truth?
In listening to Mr. Cain’s responses on this issue, he manages to talk around an actual response. Not unlike another man in even higher office who questioned the definition of “sexual relations”.
