Sexual Harassment/Assault; It’s About The Power.

(ThyBlackMan.com) Let’s begin with the truth—something rare in Washington, DC. While Sexual Harassment/Assault may result in physical injury, it is almost certainly, damaging to the psyche of the victim.  Most victims say that being the victim of Sexual Harassment is a life-altering experience.

Although some will debate this point, it’s been determined that Sexual Harassment is not about sex.  It’s an exercise of power!  In truth, I must say that perpetrators of Sexual Harassment can be either male or female, heterosexual or homosexual and that anyone can fall victim.  As it happens, men are most frequently identified as perpetrators and women as victims.  The most common element is a disparity in power – real or perceived.  Often it’s about physical power, but it can also be about the power to deny a benefit.

If not before, by now, we all have an elementary understanding of Sexual Harassment, but how far must we look back to find a cause or reason for acts of Sexual Harassment?  Going back, can we stop at the Women’s Lib Movement?  Or, can we begin our examination with the Suffragettes?  Is it more correct for us to reach back to the Founding Fathers and inquire as to why women were not referenced in the Constitution and why the rights and privileges of citizenship were not conferred therein?  Even white women had to fight for the right to vote, and the men preventing them from voting were their fathers, brothers, grandfathers, uncles, husbands, etc!  Still many of these are men who are opposed to the Equal Rights Amendment for women!

While it’s common to see the TV Talking Heads expressing shock and dismay related to the increasing reports of Sexual Harassment, I haven’t heard one give, what I believe to be, an honest determination of cause.  Most will agree that the acts signal a use of power, but I’ve heard none use the word CHATTEL.

Throughout the history of western civilization, women have held a subordinate social position to men.  Until the 1940’s, married women in America were assigned to work in the home.  Although there was work for single women, they were encouraged to marry and take their place in the home.  Accordingly, men assumed responsibility for household and family decisions, and for initiating sex.  It was considered permissible, even required, for men to beat their wives “to show their love.”  Give me a break!  This gender dominance carried over to the workplace and Sexual Harassment was the ultimate result.

Thus far, only very few have learned anything new with this reading.  More than a historical perspective, we badly need a remedy.  I’ll offer my thoughts.

WE NEED CLARITY:  In the heated environment of recent disclosures, it’s been easy to assign the same degree of egregiousness to all acts of Sexual Harassment.  I believe that each violation must be evaluated independently.  Although examined in the light of Sexual Harassment, Roy Moore’s violation of juvenile females was more criminal in nature than others that have been reported. Verbally suggestive language can be Sexual Harassment, but injurious physical contact elevates the violation to another level.

WE NEED STANDARDS:  As with the existing uniform structure between them, Federal, state and local governments should establish simplified uniform policies regarding the adjudication of complaints of Sexual Harassment.  Private sector protections should be established under the EEOC or state provisions. When people know better, they’re charged with doing better.

I have numerous nieces, sisters and female friends.  I want them to have equal opportunity to work in any area they choose and feel that they can do so without fear of sexual harassment, sexual abuse or sexual discrimination. No one who prevents them from doing so should get a pass—not even #45.

    Before talking more about whether Brett Michael Kavanaugh should become US Supreme Court justice given the sex abuse accusations, some other things.

    With Orlando Pulse, Luis Javier Ruiz, 1 of the homosexual men who survived has AIDS as a result of promiscuity, alcohol and drugs. Orlando Pulse had drug junkies & drug dealers there that night before the shooting and homosexual Luis Javier Ruiz is an AIDS infected drug junky who survived the June 2016 Orlando Pulse shooting. It’s possible that Luis Javier Ruiz is still using drugs because drug junkies often have relapses.

    Incidentally, here are things which media has not covered regarding Orlando June 2016. In June 2016, Pastor Roger O. Jimenez (Sacramento) and Pastor Steven Lee Anderson (Tempe) called the 50 Orlando Pulse shooting victims and the others wounded pedophiles. It turns out that on that night, there were underaged teenagers in the pub, so there were individual homosexual pedophiles seeking victims, before the shooting. Now it wasn’t Omar S. Mateen’s place to be executioner. It was the police’s job to arrest, with jury trials and courts deciding punishment. But there were pedophiles that night in the Orlando Pulse before shooting.

    With the sex abuse, sexual harassment and rape accusation against Brett Michael Kavanaugh. The legislators will decide if he become US Supreme Court judge. This is not a criminal trial. This is to decide if he gets the job as Supreme Court Justice. Only Brett Michael Kavanaugh & the woman who accuses him knows what happened many years ago. Predictably Peter James LaBarbera and Juanita Broaddrick (yes her again) have both sided with Brett Michael Kavanaugh, including attacking the accuser.

    Juanita Broaddrick says things such as it doesn’t matter what political party 1 belongs to, that sex abuse is wrong. But Juanita Broaddrick supports President Trump who again has had many women accuse him of sex abuse. Juanita Broaddrick has also supported columnist Dinesh (DJ) D’Souza and Dinesh was accused by his first wife of hitting her during quarrels. So Juanita Broaddrick is influenced by the political party of the accused, though she says otherwise.

    Peter J. LaBarbera made excuses for Jim Daniel Jordan. It is rumored that Ohio Representative JD Jordan covered up or was negligent with regard to homosexual pedophiles abusing teenage wrestlers during the late 1990s. Sometimes rumors are true. The right thing to do is investigate the rumor and see if proof verifies or debunks this. Peter J. LaBarbera says that he is against transexual mutilations and he says that he is against homosexual pedophiles, yet Peter J. LaBarbera, Juanita Broaddrick, Mark R. Levin, Laurann Ingraham & Michelle Malkin and Mission America’s Linda P. Harvey are making excuses for Ohio Representative Jim D. Jordan accused of covering up homosexual pedophilia against teenage wrestlers.

    Peter J. LaBarbera (Americans for Truth), Juanita Broaddrick, Mark R. Levin, Mission America’s Linda P. Harvey, Michelle Malkin and Fox News Laurann Ingraham took sides with JD Jordan because JD Jordan is Republican & not care about the teenage wrestlers who were abused by homosexual pedophiles. If the rumor is true that Ohio Representative James Daniel Jordan covered up for homosexual pedophilia in wrestling & given how Peter J. LaBarbera (Americans for Truth), Juanita Broaddrick, Mark R. Levin, Mission America’s Linda P. Harvey, Michelle Malkin and Fox News Laurann Ingraham support JD Jordan because he is going after Peter P. Strzok, then perhaps Peter J. LaBarbera (Americans for Truth), Juanita Broaddrick, Mark R. Levin, Mission America’s Linda P. Harvey, Michelle Malkin and Fox News Laurann Ingraham think covering up for homosexual pedophilia is fine when it’s Republican.

    1 thing people bring up is that 1 of the wrestlers who is now an adult once emailed a photo of a murderer to the victim’s widow. Yes, the wrestler has turned out to be a horrible adult. The fact that 1 of the wrestlers has turned out to be a bad adult has no relevance to investigating-was Jim Daniel Jordan negligent and or did Jim Daniel Jordan cover up homosexual sex abuse of teenage wrestlers?

    President Donald John Trump has also had a dozen women accuse him of rape, sex abuse and sexual harassment, but President Trump’s supporters give President Trump the doubt benefit. Many Trump supporters also gave Roy Stewart Moore the doubt benefit when he was accused of committing statutory rape on teenage girls during the 1970s-only Roy Stewart Moore and the women who accuse him know what happened.

    But Mr.Edler must know that only ex Pres. William Jefferson Clinton and Juanita Broaddrick know what happened. It’s possible Juanita Broaddrick is telling the truth but it’s also possible that ex President William J. Clinton had an affair with Juanita Broaddrick and Juanita Broaddrick is angry that ex President William J. Clinton rejected her, in that he did not want to continue the relationship with her. It’s also possible that nothing sexual happened between Juanita Broaddrick and ex President Clinton in that Juanita Broaddrick could have wanted to have a relationship with William J. Clinton, but he was not interested in her and she has been angry all these years.

    I write those other possibilities, because Juanita Broaddrick’s actions are also consistent with some1 who is angry that she was rejected. Juanita Broaddrick on her Twitter page has attacked Chelsea Victoria Clinton, and the attacks Juanita Broaddrick makes on Hillary Diane Clinton and Chelsea are also consistent with a person who is angry that she was rejected and she takes her anger on Clinton’s daughter. Only Juanita and Bill know what happened.

    Juanita Broaddrick talks about how her story has not been covered by mainstream press, though NBC Dateline interviewed her and broadcasted her interview in February 1999 & she still condemned NBC. CNN, ABC News and CBS News also talked about Juanita Broaddrick’s accusation in February 1999. Juanita Broaddrick has been on Fox News a few times since then. Now while CBS, NBC, ABC and CNN have discussed Juanita Broaddrick much less than Fox News, they have talked about her. Washington Post & other newspapers talked about Juanita Broaddrick’s accusation in February 1999.

    President Clinton has been out of politics since 2001, so repeatedly talking about Juanita Broaddrick’s accusation would be repeating old news. Hillary Diane Clinton was Senator from 2001-2013 and the media discussed many things that she was accused of such as Benghazi and the emails, though it was concluded Hillary Diane Clinton did nothing illegal though she could have been smarter with the emails.

    Juanita Broaddrick condemned Amazon for selling a book about ex President Clinton by J. Patterson, though Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. also sells her book and other books hostile to the Clintons. Amazon and Barnes and Noble’s job is to sell books and make money and they sell pro-Clinton books just as they sell hers. Juanita Broaddrick condemned Fox News for advertising J. Patterson’s book about Ex President Clinton, though Fox News has had her many times on her show.

    In October 2016, after journalist Megyn M. Kelly mentioned that DJ Trump has had many women accuse him of rape and sex abuse, Juanita Broaddrick got angry and compared Megyn M. Kelly to murderer Charles M. Manson. Paula Rosalee Jones called Megyn a nasty heifer. Juanita Broaddrick got angry because journalist Megyn Marie Kelly told Newt that DJ Trump has had women accuse him of rape and sex abuse. Juanita Broaddrick denies being politically motivated but the fact Juanita Broaddrick got so angry @ Megyn, proves that Juanita Broaddrick is politically motivated.

    Juanita Broaddrick’s face fits the body language of an arrogant, haughty and angry personality. I don’t think Juanita Broaddrick wants to be interviewed by NBC, CBS or ABC News because what could happen is a conflict, given how Juanita compared Megyn to Charles M. Manson.

    Juanita Broaddrick supports Breitbart even after Breitbart hired Milo Yiannopolous and Milo Yiannopolous defends same sex pedophilia. Perhaps, Juanita Broaddrick thinks it’s acceptable for Milo Yiannopolous to support homosexual pedophilia. If the rumor is true that Ohio Representative James Daniel Jordan covered up for homosexual pedophilia in wrestling & given how Juanita Broaddrick, Mark R. Levin and Michelle Malkin support JD Jordan because he is going after Peter P. Strzok, then perhaps Juanita Broaddrick, Mar. R. Levin and Michelle Malkin think covering up for homosexual pedophilia is fine when it’s Republican. If the rumor is true that J.D. Jordan covered up for homosexual sex abuse, then JD Jordan is a horrible person.

    1. Rapes are found in the animal world. They’re found amongst insects such as crickets, waterstriders, scorpion flies, etc. They’re found amongst birds such as mallard ducks & red jungle fowl. They’re also found amongst primates such as Orangutans. Males rape females for reproductive reasons in the animal world. A male who has problem getting females (such as males who lose mate fights) rape females so as to reproduce.

    2. Rapists mainly target young women, while rapists can attack women of all ages, most rapists go after women who are girls to 35 years old. 75% of women who are raped are under 30 years old, 10 to 12% of women raped are 30 to 35 years old, 7 to 9% 36 to 39 year old, with 5 to 8% of women rape victims being 40 or older with most in this group in their 40s, the last pretty years. Womenopausal women, make up 1 to 2% of rape victims. After 40, the woman’s chances of getting raped starts going down significantly. If a man robs a 45 year old woman, he’ll take her money. But if the same man robs a 25 year old woman, then he is more likely to commit rape in addition to robbery. This is true in wars. Soldiers who win a war steal, loot & rape young women. Men rape young women because the woman has something which the man wants & that is sex-which he takes by force or by threatening force.

    3. Most rapists don’t do added violence. This is esp. true of acquaintance rapes-date & marital. If a man rapes a woman, he’ll use the force or threat of this to get sex. It’s like a bank robber. Most bank robbers will only use the needed force or threat to get the $ & then leave. Another reason most rapists don’t use added violence is because of biology related to reproductive success. In the animal world, if a male kills a female in addition to sex, then his reproductive success has failed. Yes, some rapists do kill their victims just as some robbers kill their victims, but these are in the minority & the most likely reason is to kill any witnesses.

    4. Poor men are more likely to commit rape. Yes, rich men sometimes commit rape if they lack sex restraint. However the reason poor men are more likely to commit rape (with most of their victims poor women) is because poor men are more likely to have problems getting women. Women are drawn to men based on the man’s phoenotype (good genes) & resources that a man has. Poor men are more likely to have problems getting women who are interested in them & they may not even be willing to pay a prostitute. So they resort to rape for their sexual motives. In the animal world, males have to impress females such as win mate fights, provide nuptial gifts such as food to impress the females. If the females aren’t impressed, then some males rape so as to reproduce.

  5. Anirban (aka Abner) Bhattacharya says:

    Dr. E. Faye Williams, sexual harassment, which includes rape and sex abuse is about sex, with power and violence (assault & battery) being used to accomplish that. You’d be right if you said that sexual harassment is more than sex but to say that sex has nothing to do with it is dishonest. I think people who say things like sex has nothing to do with it are dishonest and denying what they know is true. Most rapists (84%) admit that sex is a large motive for why they rape. So yes, rape, sex abuse and sexual harassment are about sex-power & violence are used to get what they want.

    Yes, there are added motives to rape just as there are added motives to robbery. In fact, there are added motives to consenting sex. When a man has sex with his wife or girlfriend, they do it for sexual pleasure, but there are other motives in addition to sexual pleasure such as love, intimacy. Sexual pleasure has a main reason to why a man has sex with a woman + other reasons.

    Rapes would not happen if the rapist did not want sex. Sex has alot to do with rape only that there can be other added motives. It’s like robbery. When a man robs a bank, money has alot to do with why he robs the bank, but there can be added motives such as thrill of not getting caught, power knowing trouble you went to in order to commit the robbery and so on. Anyhow, that’s been the idea. Sex has alot to do with rape just as money has alot to do with bank robbery-only that added motives can exist.

    1. Rapes are found in the animal world. They’re found amongst insects such as crickets, waterstriders, scorpion flies, etc. They’re found amongst birds such as mallard ducks & red jungle fowl. They’re also found amongst primates such as Orangutans. Males rape females for reproductive reasons in the animal world.

Menopausal women, those 50 & older make up 1 to 2% of rape victims. After 40, the woman’s chances of getting raped starts going down significantly. This is true in wars. Soldiers who win steal, loot & rape young women. Men rape young women because the woman has something which the man wants & that is sex-which he takes by force or by threatening force.
