(FYI, the comments below were posted today on Facebook by one of my loyal readers, and I felt that they merited being re-posted here on the Welcome Aboard The R U Kidding blog…Cap’n John.)
I was reading this article (see link below) about Matt Lauer and his now-estranged wife Annette Roque just now and stumbled onto something that absolutely dismays and sickens me.
If you scroll down past the story, you’ll find one of those “slide show” group of photos, this one depicting *43* (yes, you read that right, FORTY FUCKING THREE) “powerful men accused of sexual harassment”.
Jumping Christ on a sidecar, are you kidding me?
Even given that some of the accusations are probably nonsense, I strongly believe that they represent a VERY small percentage of the total.
I don’t express many opinions here on Facebook…I’ve always viewed FB as a place to socialize and laugh with my friends. I’ve recently withdrawn, to a great extent, from social media just because of it’s increasing partisanship and it’s distressing lack of civility. That said, I will nonetheless venture an opinion here…
THESE MEN SHOULD BE GIVEN A FAIR TRIAL IN A COURT OF LAW, AND IF FOUND GUILTY, TAKEN OUT BEHIND THE COURTHOUSE AND SHOT.
Men, we need to hold each other accountable; women do not deserve to be treated in this manner.
Remember, all of you Neanderthals who think and believe that a women is a plaything, not worthy of consideration, someone to use and discard…some other piece of shit, just like you, right this moment, may be treating your mother, your sister, your daughter or your wife in the same manner.
Oh, and FYI, I personally have no problem whatsoever busting some asshole’s chops if I witness or am made aware of this type of behavior. It’s past time for the decent men of this world to contribute to stopping this horror.
God, right now, I am ashamed to be a guy.
