Falling on a sword. Voluntary or not: Either way, you're dead.

by Angela K. Durden

P***y-chasing politicians and pundits and personalities on the P-HWPCDLRSFC* side are now being outed faster than you can refresh your Internet browser search window. Some say it's about time that sexual harassment was done away with once and for all.

With the longest drawl full of irony, I say, "Right." But there is actually more to this.

In long ago days of yore, falling on a sword was not metaphorical. It was an honorable thing to do for another. A thing voluntarily chosen. A thing involving a long, sharp, pointed object that tended to kill when poked inside one's body by one's self. 

Today, Pussy-Hat Wearing Politically Correct Democrat Liberal RINO Socialist Fascist Commie (P-HWPCDLRSFC) men are being forced to fall on a sword whether they like it or not.

Matt Lauer and Garrison Keillor are the most current in this rush to judgment and need to "get it all out" so the P-HWPCDLRSFCs can get back to doing what they do best: Bashing anything not like them, and gutting the Constitution that protects and defends freedom on many levels.

As long as there are men and women, there will always be men asking to touch the goodies — and women saying hold yer horses there, big boy, sit up and beg for it.

And as long as there are women who are turned on by powerful men and who don't mind turning that process into a quid pro quo transaction, there will always be workplace hanky-panky. For goodness sake, isn't that what the celebrated TV series Mad Men and the badly written but highly popular 50 Shades of Grey all about?

Yes. They were.

And yes, real sexual harassment with real-life consequences of being fired, hurt, and killed are real. 

I was once fired when I said no to a manager where I worked. I immediately went to the owners of the grocery store business and complained. They chose to believe his ginned up evidence that I was a thief. There was nothing I could do except go out and get another job.

Once, while walking in the woods in a park when I was a girl of 12, a man who was definitely a predator attempted to make me his next victim. Long story how, but I got rid of him without backing down.

Not too long ago, a man forced me into my car making me have to fight him off.

And don't get me started on my step-father's real threats of violence and death to me and my mother and siblings if I didn't do as he asked, and you know what I mean by that.

So, I know real violence and real victims exist, and if anybody says I'm saying otherwise, they are a liar. However...

I believe there are many women out there who are confusing real predators who don't ask with eager hound dogs chasing the scent and begging pretty please.**

When I was a teen, two different bosses hit on me consistently. One responded to being ignored and gave up even as he almost cried saying, "But you've got such loooong legs."

The other I told, "My mother says you are a dirty-old man and to leave me alone." He laughed and every morning after that, he walked by, nodded, politely said good morning, and moved on.

When I was newly married, a huge customer of my (now ex) husband wanted to get in my panties. He was told no and he went away.

During parties and business functions, taking walks in the park, shopping for groceries, getting a hamburger at the drive-thru, going out dancing, and everywhere else you can imagine, I've been hit on by hound dogs.

No hard feelings from any of them. No threats to fire me or withhold business from the hubby.

Sad shakes of the head, sure. Winks and twinkles when they would next see me. Of course. But respectfully taking my no.

But why now all these P-HWPCDLRSFC men being outed all of a sudden? It's simple. 

The P-HWPCDLRSFC are trying to gain back control of a situation that has shed a harsh light into their dark places. Their brilliant idea is to force powerful P-HWPCDLRSFC men to fall on their swords and "take one for the team."

From this point forward they can say, "You know what, maybe we should have spoken up against Bills Clinton and Cosby et al, but damn it, it's not too late to prove we really do care for women. But more importantly, TRUMP SUCKS."

And notice the use of the phrase "inappropriate sexual behavior."

If that isn't a phrase totally designed to confuse and minimize, I don't know what is, especially among adults. What is inappropriate and harassing to one is awesome and welcome by another.

Even that phrase makes my point: P-HWPCDLRSFC cannot tell the difference and the reason they can't is because God and morals have been left out of the equation. "If it feels good, do it" became the mantra in the late 60s and anybody who didn't live by it was considered to be uptight or frigid.

Then came the laws against workplace sexual harassment and RadFems burning bras in public and then looking mean at the men who watched them.

You see how confusing it all is when there are no boundaries?

** Gosh, just search on the phrase "sexual predator" and look at the images that come up. Talk about not understanding the meaning and turning it into high comedy.
