Too often men in powerful positions abuse women when they shouldn't have to. The pathetic advances plied upon women in subordinate positions is as bad as the misogynist lyrics to violent songs which demean women yet command our ears.
Enter stage right — one Roger Ailes at Fox News who is being investigated for serious charges of sexual harassment of female news anchors there.
Unfortunately, the entertainment and news industry is rigged to save powerful men behaving badly who hold powerful positions and are subjecting women in subordinate roles to often inappropriate non-consensual sexual advances.
John McLaughlin of The McLaughlin Group, a former priest, settled a sexual harassment suit in 1992 while still being allowed to pursue his punditry. And the often esteemed Bill O'Reilly fell under a similar spell in an October of 2004 settled suit. Let us also not forget America's once favorite dad, Bill Cosby who has yet to be tried for years of alleged actions befitting a sexual predator.
The hypocrisy of these men who seem to peddle conservative values to the masses which belie their actions is shameful. Unfortunately men who abuse women in elevators for all to see or the privacy of their homes often escape punishment because of their money or fame, disallowing the females involved similar counsel.
Steve Harvey and Michael Strahan were also accused of battery, they are now being allowed to advance to further fame and fortune in the multimillionaire realm.
Another factor in resolving cases favorably for women who are insulted might be the lack of female justices throughout the court system. I'm hoping the next Supreme Court Justice will be an African-American woman. Too often the unreported crimes against women are the body blows to us or the assaults on the products of our wombs — whose lives must matter.
