What is occurring is not
an epidemic of sexual harassment allegations
It is a momentous occasion when women are finding their voice to both protest and fight back against sexual harassment and unequal treatment.
That hardly deserves the term epidemic. Rather its revolutionary behavior.
This period in time reflects an enormous social dynamic sweeping through society.
And, I submit, the more power women achieve, the better for society as a whole.
Countries where women have achieved greater political power tend to be well governed. Countries where women are closer to being full and equal partners without sexual discrimination and sexual harassment limiting their potential, tend to be better places to live. For everyone.
I don't think this will mean a reversion to puritan values or behavior that the more conservative in society seem to aspire, specifically because those puritan mores discriminated against women, and kept them from being equal partners in society.
What women are achieving at the moment is another step in their evolution to equality. It should be respected as more than a short term "epidemic".
As for the male "victims". There is going need to be a sense of context. Franken, for instance has been a bit of a pig. However, his political actions have tended to favor womens issues...
He requires sanctioning but not firing.
Conyers? Probable firing.
Trump? Roy Moore?
well, the day Paul Ryan can honestly gauge the equivalence between a mans' action regardless of their political stripe...
