To the editor:
(Plain Press, January 2018) This letter is in response to the articles covering the sexual harassment allegations made against men in the media and government throughout the United States.
To all males living in this country, I issue a collective statement: enough already! Who are you to impose your sexual desires on someone because they did not give you their consent? Once again, we are witnessing those in authority positions taking advantage of the situation. Resignation is the least you can do. Prosecution is the best we can do…and we will.
What did you expect to gain from making sexual advances on a human being? If this isn’t an indication of the failure to grow up, I don’t know what is. Those men who have permeated this transgression must seek counseling before they destroy more lives executing their perverted conquest. Otherwise, time spent in prison will allow them to dwell on their evil actions while trying to survive an environment which is the closest equivalent to hell on earth.
Perhaps I had the advantage of growing up with four sisters in my family which, some say, predisposes males to be kinder to females throughout all stages of their life. Frankly, I remember times when I was embarrassed for making incidental contact with a female followed by an immediate apology.
Ladies of America, please be assured that the actions of a few do not represent the feelings and beliefs of the many. You are our mothers, sisters, daughters, cousins etc. that compose one equal half of the species we call the human race. For that matter, do not despair because the true, honest and gentle men of this country know better than to act inappropriately in your company. We will always cherish your beauty, charm and most importantly your intelligence. Now, help us to drive this dreadful scourge from the planet once and for all. It is up to all of us. Let us begin.
