Do you remember when President Bill Clinton was caught in a sexual misconduct incident with an intern? Of course you do. He chose as his defense, to lie about it. He even lied to the Grand Jury and was rewarded by disbarment from the practice of law. He was also impeached being only the second President in our history to be impeached.
The reason I am bringing back this painful memory is to point out the reaction at that time by some on the left. You know, the liberals. None other than Gloria Steinem, head of N.O.W., the National Organization for Women, excused Clinton for his sexual “dalliance” by stating that powerful people like Clinton have strong sexual urges and cannot be denied. So, according to Steinem, if you are a powerful politician it’s okay to cheat on your wife by having sexual contact with a very young intern in the Oval Office. After all, he has been a “champion of women” and overall he has been good for their causes. That’s a lot like saying that Jerry Sandusky, formerly of Penn State University, now a lifer convict in prison, should be excused for raping young football players because other than that, he was a good coach. After all, boys will be boys. That is what I have been hearing from the liberal press now that accusations are flying around about certain politicians.
So, what do you think? Will boys just be boys? Should we just expect boorish, criminal behavior from males just because they are males? What that means is that females are nothing more than sexual objects for the pleasure of males. Apparently, according to this thinking, the rules of civilization and common good behavior don’t apply if one is male and especially if one is in a position of power.
Or maybe this is all just a double standard whereby low life slugs on the left can get away with anything as long as they remain good liberals. Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters have taken to the airways to defend John Conyers and Al Franken. Pelosi has since come to her political senses and is now calling for the resignation of Conyers. But, did you hear Franken’s apology? Translated it said that “some” women just didn’t get the fact that his groping was all in fun and they should have enjoyed the attention from a big powerful Senator. Here’s a message from one who might not be so lenient. Al, try grabbing my wife or daughter’s rear end and see what happens to you. Should you survive their initial reaction, then you would have to face their husbands. Not a pretty picture, Al. Both you and the liberal media might come to understand what the phrase boys will be boys really means. I promise you, you will never grope another woman.
And so it comes to this. As a male/boy, I take offense at the idea that just because I am a male I can grope, kiss, grab, fondle, or anything else I might be inclined to do, and be excused because after all I am just a boy. That is a slanderous concept that should offend all citizens. It is not now and never has it been okay to be so disrespectful of anyone. Respect for a person’s privacy is sacrosanct. Our houses have doors. If we open those doors and allow someone to enter, that’s our choice. But until we allow the entrance, entering that door is a violation of privacy as well as a criminal offense.
As you listen to the liberal women proclaim that certain acts by certain people is okay because of who they are, remember how you might react if you were the victim of such disrespect.
And this thought to anybody regardless of position who might choose to grope another woman. Be very careful lest you find that you will no longer be able to use that groping hand again. Because this truth remains in my world, men will be men.
