GQ: What can you tell about a man by the type of pizza that he likes?

Herman Cain: [repeats the question aloud, then pauses for a long moment] The more toppings a man has on his pizza, I believe the more manly he is.

GQ: Why is that?

Cain: Because the more manly man is not afraid of abundance. [laughs]

GQ: Is that purely a meat question?

Cain: A manly man don’t want it piled high with vegetables! He would call that a sissy pizza.

– Herman Cain took a moment from maybe-sexually harassing any woman in an arm’s length to answer some questions about pizza for GQ. After all, he is the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza. And people say this man shouldn’t be president! [GQ via Mediaite]

As my 68-year-old, Fox News-watching, Republican-voting father tells it, once upon a time you could compliment a woman in the workplace. You were allowed say “nice dress” or “you look nice today” and it was not a big deal. Everyone would smile pleasantly and go back to clacking on their typewriters. Then the ’70s came along. Hairy-pitted fists were raised and all of a sudden you were afraid to say “nice earrings” out of fear you’d be thrown in the pokey. Or, as the tone of his voice insinuated,  you’d be accused of “sexual harassment.”

I wish I were exaggerating this narrative, but I am not: it’s a real conversation I had with my dad last weekend when we chatted about the accusations against Herman Cain. I also wish that the New York Times op-ed written by Katie Roiphe had not misrepresented sexual harassment as boneheaded-ly as my nearly-septugenarian father does. But, sadly, that really happened also. Keep reading »
