Hands Off! Alleged Subway Groper Gets Shot By Cop

It’s been rough going for men who grope women and girls on public transit. Last month, some creep on the New York City subway got the crap beaten out of him by college student Shayne DeJesus, who filmed the incident with her phone, and was ratted out to the po-po by his brother. And on Friday, an off-duty cop shot a 22-year-old man who allegedly groped an 18-year-old and a 13-year-old. Keep reading »

“What people called sexual harassment, we called compliments. When a 16-year-old girl is flattered by a man pulling out his penis, that’s noteworthy.”

This quote from the model Paulina Porizkova from the forthcoming HBO documentary “About Face,” about the modeling industry, saddens me. Sexual harassment is something all women have experienced, but it did not have a name, really, until the early ’70s. While my initial reaction to this quote was to say Paulina sounds like a dingbat, on further thought I realize she was a product of her (sexist) time and sadly, young models (as she was in the ’80s) were socialized to think a whipped-out dong was a good thing.

Because being accused of an affair is apparently worse than being accused of sexually harassing a bunch of women, Herman Cain has suspended his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. Cain told supporters on Saturday he is leaving the race over “the continued distraction.” (Weirdly, the announcement came one day after his campaign launched a laughably bizarre “Women For Cain” website.) And regarding the actual accusation by Atlanta woman Ginger White that they’ve been boinking for 13 years? He continued his tactic of deny, deny, deny. Keep reading »

The best moment of the 2012 campaign so far happened when Herman Cain assured American voters that for all the women who have claimed he sexually harassed them, there are thousands who have not. See? He might have been accused of sexually harassing some women, but come on, people, he hasn’t sexually harassed all women. Give him a break! [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
