What all the abusers and harassers have in common
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 ever groped constituents 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 profound 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.
