Sexual Harassment Observation

Similar hysteria overtook Germany in 1930s

It's happening.
Everyone jumps on a same bandwagon.
No one feels free to speak out against the rising tide.
If you buck the trend you're an enemy of the common mindset,
now in a lock grip on public thought.
Someone says, "I think he's a _____" (name your poison).
Right now it's sex. Could be wealth. Colors. Anything. Doesn't matter. You're doomed.

That's the dangerous part of what's happening with sexual harassment charges.
Not the harassment. Not the sex.
Not the treatment or mistreatment of women.
Not the time delay in the sh!t hitting the fan -- 40-year delays.

Abuse of people has been on since forever.
Subtle abuse, overt abuse, men, women, kids, quiet, loud, it's been routine.
If you're just finding this out, no, wait, no one is just now finding this out.
The idea that it is now grounds for dismissal and destruction without due process --
mob mentality -- that's the issue.

Islam treats women like slaves. Not figurative slaves, literal slaves.
If actual concern for treatment of women was the issue,
that would be on the radar.
That would be front and center, on the table.
It is not.
Not just muslims in Arabia, and France, and among 1.2 billion muslims.
Right here in Dearborn, Michigan and elsewhere.

Nobody cares about that.
Because it's not part of the herd mentality that's taken control.
The herd mentality is the problem.

Are there real abuse problems between women and men? Sure.
Do men, being unequal, take advantage? Who doesn't know that.
Life is unfair. We all get that.
You do what you can. It's not fair.
Short of felony assault your choices are more limited.
And even then...
Some of it's pure biology, some is more sinister.
Just like life.

Remember: All sexual advances are unwanted sexual advances,
until you find out if they're wanted or not.
That's true for both sexes.

I was fortunate to have met a French woman on a flight to France.
That was in my music-business days, from 1972 - 1980, went to MIDEM,
voted for the Grammy winners, I was in the thick of it, the whole nine yards.
My French girlfriend, bless her, she taught me a lot about the world,
as naive as she may have been about other things (so I taught her
a thing or two too). She informed me, after I gave up one time,
"Oooh Alain... sometimes no meeens yes!"
