The big fuss being made over sexual harassment and abuse in the workplace is seeming to be not unlike the big fuss made every time some asshole with a gun opens fire in a crowd… it’s making a lot of headlines, generating a lot of hot air and resulting in absolutely nothing substantive being done. Are some high profile men losing their jobs, their status, their power? They are but the tip of the iceberg, being sacrificed for the betterment of all their male contemporaries. The noise will die down in the excitement of the holiday, men will go back to doing whatever the hell they want to women on the assumption that might makes right and in about ten more years, the whole thing will erupt again.
Sad. So, so sad.
