With the many recent revelations by women who are alleging to have suffered sexual assault and abuse by various men, most of them famous in some way or the other, I’m getting the feeling that men are getting scared, and may become hesitant to have lunch, coffee, dinner, or meet in an office alone with any woman, even if that woman has been a valued colleague of theirs for years.
Vice President, Mike Pence, has indicated that he will not have lunch, dinner, or meet with a woman unless his wife is present. While that is certainly admiral, I think it’s carrying things a little too far. I had a job for over fifteen years where I worked and traveled mostly with men. I frequently had lunch and dinner with colleagues, met with them alone, and have even met with them in hotel rooms. All of these associates were consummate professionals and nothing out of the ordinary took place and wasn’t even thinkable.
With all the women who are trotting out and getting their fifteen minutes of fame, I believe that some are legitimate, but I also believe that some may be lying through their teeth. In the case of Judge Roy Moore, candidate for U.S. Senator from Alabama, some women are only alleging that he asked them out when they were in their teens and he was in his early thirties. The act of asking a young woman out on a date is not a crime, nor does it constitute sexual abuse. But once the woman comes out and speaks, feminists began screaming that the so-called victim deserves to be believed, and the man should be demonized for life. As in the cases of Michael Brown and the Duke University Lacrosse team, the alleged assailants are guilty, and the victims are innocent. Even if facts and investigations prove otherwise at later dates, the men’s lives are ruined anyway.
If I’m a working man with a family whose job it is to regularly interact with others in my field, both men and women, should I be concerned that some woman, a subordinate, a colleague, or even a boss may decide that they want to make trouble for me, and allege that I behaved inappropriately when alone with them? Maybe. It’s certainly something to think about.
If men are apprehensive about being around women because they fear being accused of inappropriate behavior, what’s this going to do to the progress women have made since the early seventies when it became commonplace for women to be hired to perform jobs that had traditionally been held by men? If a woman and a man are the top two candidates for a job such as the one I had for years, would the person in charge of hiring, to be on the safe side, opt to hire the man? What about promotions. Is this going to hurt qualified women’s chances of getting well-deserved promotions?
Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, many big decisions and strategies are made over lunch, dinner, coffee, and even drinks late at night in a bar. If restrictions are put on these types of meetings, less is going to get done. Sure, guidelines can be implemented. But isn’t this just adding more layers of bureaucracy and more layers of stress?
From the day after President Trump’s inauguration, radical feminists have fought everything he and his administration have done, and are continuing to do so. They thought they were cute dressing up as women’s body parts and wearing the so-called vagina hats. But all they were doing were embarrassing themselves and, embarrassing the good and decent hard-working women out there who want to have the same opportunities as men, and compete for the same jobs as men, but don’t want to destroy men, our fathers, our brothers, our cousins, our nephews, our uncles, our sons, our husbands, and our boyfriends.
Furthermore, these feminists, including the queen of them all, Hillary Clinton, not only want to destroy men, particularly men who are white, Christian, and conservative, they also want to destroy the women who don’t see eye to eye with them. Women who didn’t support Hillary Clinton are of course, deplorables, but we are also problematic and a disgrace to our gender.
Several years ago, young black conservative, Jason Riley authored a book directed at the left entitled, “Please stop helping us.” He’s asking the liberal establishment to please stop helping blacks and describes how the liberal establishment has actually hurt blacks, not helped them.
Could the same thing be happening to women, could the radical feminists possibly destroy all the progress for which women have worked so hard? I believe that’s possible. So, to you, radical feminists, please stop helping us. You nothing but problematic and a disgrace to my gender.
