Sex in the News: Defining Sexual Harassment

A common theme in sex related news this week is sexual harassment.
A study done by theĀ Association of American University Women reported half of US middle and high school students have been victims of sexual harassment last year, though only 9% reported the incidents to an adult. Girls are more likely to be sexually harassed than boys, both online and in person. While the most common type of harassment for boys is being called ‘gay,’ girls are more likely to be victims of physical sexual harassment. I wish I could say is that it gets better, but as you get older you have to deal with doofuses such as John Derbyshire who don’t even believe sexual harassment exists.
Derbyshire, a writer for the National Review, says in a postĀ “You pay a girl a compliment nowadays, she runs off and gets lawyered up.” Yes, he doesn’t think sexual harassment is a real thing. Hoo-boy. He’s referring to the bevy of claims made against Herman Cain. While Cain is still innocent until proven otherwise, let me tell you Derbyshire, sexual harassment is real. Promise.
Next up we have Virginia Delegate Dick Black who says cases of marital rape can’t be prosecuted because of women wearing nighties to bed. Therefore they are asking for it. News flash Dick, but marital rape is a thing in the United States, and it is a criminal offense. Instead of questioning the legitimacy of the marital rape law or making victims pay spousal support the Western World should be setting an example for countries such as Saudia Arabia.
While Herman Cain deserves to not be treated like a criminal until charges are laid and trials are held, we need not to be questioning the existence of sexual harassment. It exists. Deal with it and let’s move forward so we can reduce its prevalence. Yes — guy at the gym last night. Stop staring at my ass and let me work out in peace.
