The problem with sexual harassment crisis sweeping this country is the infinite number of subtleties in the male-female dynamic. Rather than tackle it full-bore, let us take one bite out of this unfolding drama:
A woman has accused Senator Al Franken of groping her backside at the Minnesota State Fair as her husband took their photo. After the incident, the woman says she “felt humiliated, and quickly walked away.”
Wait. This is a grown woman. Could she not have turned on Franken and declared, “How dare you touch me like that!” She told her husband what Franken had done. He is grown, too, I presume. If he is too “civilized” to punch the “perv” in the mouth, at least he should have confronted the senator, and commanded, “Don’t you ever put your hands on my wife!” Neither of them did anything; both ran from an old, fat senator like two cowards.
Must others fight these most fundamental of battles that aggrieved men and women should be fighting for themselves?
