an incomplete sexual naughty list
The Washington Post provides a list, frustratingly in video form…
While one should certainly draw lines between sexual assault, sexual harassment, rudeness, coercion and in-between all of that…. and not every allegation may prove true… and while many allegations are of events that are true yet unprovable, there is value in listing these potential bad actors.
Mind you, I say this only to charitably suggest the point that Matt Lauer may be a sexual predator, but Al Franken’s sexual impropriety doesn’t stem from a predatory impulse, drive towards victimizing women; Senator Franken is simply a prick that thinks he is better than people. Thinking that one is better than others is actually the first common thread that among all of these stories regarding the mindset of the aggressor, the sinner, the bad guy.
The second common threat is among enablers and victims.
