Almost every day now, a different Man in a Power Position is outed.....!
Latest is Matt Lauer...Quickly judged and fired!
We often put our leaders up on a pedestal
and when they fail in some human way, we judge and punish them far more harshly!
At the moment, this:... "Man in Power's interest and coercion of Women as a sexual possibility
... (Please don't confuse with any type of Rape)... is spreading like wildfire throughout the US media and probably the world!
So expect this new form of media driven 'Sexual McCarthyism'
, to increase and create victims on all sides and areas.
I still believe it is great that it has awakened public awareness and hopefully education, but in this context of a single sailor contemplating inviting a female crew to cruise with him as a buddy/companion.
... there are now new risks to be considered if any sexual tensions developed and are perceived as coercion.
Young boys are taught thru literature, movies to be the aggressor in attracting a women
. And many traditional woman expect and accept that as an unspoken part of a normal mating ritual. (that type of woman often appears coy but doesn't actually say No until the guy crosses the line!!)... It would be much better if women sent out clear..."Not Interested" signals at the outset of any man's attempt to test the water
While Testosterone levels diminish with Age, the irony of this is that single
Alpha type men
tend to fight and resist less activity by resorting to other means of sexual conquests, including power coercion.
An obvious solution is to safely remove the illegality and stigma away, by providing a more protected Sexual Worker situation (both Male and Female) and allow for a more healthier release of the pent up sexual tensions of a frustrated person.
But our puritanical mindset is afraid that this will put women at risk even more......
