Michael Medved: What all the Abusers and Harassers Have in Common

Opioid

Recent charges of assault and harassment have destroyed powerful figures in every field of endeavor. These accusations have afflicted liberals and conservatives, straight and gay, black and white, with only one factor linking every one of the accused: they are all men. That’s not because women have no power to abuse: females occupy some commanding heights in politics, business and entertainment, yet no woman producer used a casting couch like Weinstein, and none of the 105 women in Congress have been accused of behavior like Franken‘s.

Females don’t feel the same impulse to force themselves on unwilling objects of desire, and any men subjected to such assaults are better equipped to resist. That’s not due to strength or size, but because of the obvious difference in the way males and females engage in sex.

Current headlines should force the Left to acknowledge an obvious point that they have long preferred to ignore: men and women are profoundly, unmistakably, undeniably different.

Hugh Hewitt: Our Culture And The Sexual Misconduct Crisis

FISA

Sometimes we have to remind ourselves of the good thing that can come when a bad thing happens.

The recent wave of sexual misconduct is very disturbing.

We can probably call this “the Great Purge,” how American society woke up and rid itself of bad and boorish behavior—sometimes worse than bad and boorish, sometimes criminal—from men taking advantage of their powerful positions.

The good thing in all of this is the opportunities for recourse that are now being afforded young women who had been victimized, simply for wanting to get ahead in their careers.

Their stories are finally being believed and the bad actors, mostly men, are being forced to walk the gang plank.

The good thing inside the bad thing is that our daughters and even our sons will not be forced to endure this kind of behavior. They should be promoted based on merit and ability and hard work. Nothing more. Those taking advantage of them should indeed be purged.
