I am intrigued by our men as we watch living dramas in America as if sex abuse does not involve our politicians, entertainers, and businessmen too. Grace Jones gave a shout and our men tout machismo, laud their sex drive, and we love to bawl injustice, but all is quiet— why?
Abuse of women and kids is not unusual or new, but unacceptable! History is the story of men, by men, for men who ran things for millennia. Men abused women as chattels and as the spoils of war. Attempts to hear women’s stories and liberate them are puny. But this unprecedented gender upheaval in the US may shift the moral GPS.
