Harvey Weinstein was a big Hillary supporter, and a major Democratic donor. Remember when Hillary said that every woman who claims to have been raped "deserves to be believed?"
Ben Affleck, another prominent liberal, declared that the allegations against Weinstein "made me sick." Then it turned out that he himself had been a harasser, albeit on a smaller scale, and there were similar allegations against his own brother Casey, whom he had supported.
Kevin Spacey was also a Democratic donor.
And journalists Leon Wieseltier, Michael Oreskes, Jann Wenner, and Mark Halperin are prominent liberals as well.
So, seeing these "feminist's" true natures exposed is gratifying.
But does anyone doubt that men in positions of power in other fields act exactly the same way?
Does anyone think that the CEOs of various corporations across the country aren't having it off with their various subordinates?
Does anyone doubt that there are plenty of corporate managers below CEO level who are having affairs with women who work for them?
Does anyone doubt that all of these women think that having sex with their bosses will help them professionally?
When I worked on Wall Street, over half of the good-looking women there that I knew were having sex with, if not their bosses, someone else who could help them get ahead. Their resumes may have included stints at Drexel Burnham Lambert, or First Boston, or Salomon Brothers, but in spirit, what they were doing was not really all that different from what the ladies at the Bunny Ranch in Nevada do.
Does anyone doubt that a lot of college professors regularly have sex with their students? (At most colleges, this is against the rules.)
Does anyone doubt that there is a lot of hanky panky that goes on in the military? We occasionally hear of harassment cases at West Point or elsewhere, but those are undoubtedly just a small fraction of the incidents that take place.
And does anyone doubt that at medical practices across the country, a fair percentage of doctors aren't having it off with pharmaceutical reps and nurses and other staff?
Just to be clear, it's not always the man in the position of power.
In many of these cases, these incidents are taking place with the full and enthusiastic participation of the subordinates involved. And in some, they're doing it purely for professional advancement. And much of the time, it's a combination of the two.
Also, varying amounts of brazenness were undoubtedly shown by both parties in instigating the affairs.
But virtually all of these situations, if presented in the right light, could be made to sound like sexual harassment.
But exactly where is the line defining "harassment" drawn? There's always going to be a huge gray area there.
But the idea that sexually aggressive behavior is confined to Hollywood is incredible silly.
Men tend to be the aggressors about sex, and they express that aggression with varying degrees of subtlety. And women play along -- or don't -- with varying degrees of coyness. That's the way it's always been, and the way it will always be.
If these instincts didn't exist, the human race would long ago have died out.
